While self-care is an important topic not to be neglected, it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start. Finding time to devote to yourself or focusing fully on a new routine can be daunting. However, caring for yourself doesn’t have to be complicated. By incorporating plants into your life, you are choosing to nurture while enjoying the natural colors and textures plants bring into your world. Rebel Hill Florist has a wide variety of plant options. Take a look at some of our favorites.
What’s the quickest route to making an ordinary moment into a meaningful one? Flowers, of course.
Even the smallest, most mundane moment can be made special through flowers, and if you really want to help someone feel valued, seen, cherished, loved (list your favorite good feeling here), an entirely unanticipated gift of flowers is the way to do it. You don’t need a reason to turn an ordinary moment into a meaningful one for someone you love, whether that’s your daughter coming home with a good grade on a test or flowers for your wife because it’s date night at the pizza place. Flowers inherently matter, and they bring that value to any moment in which they appear.
Grandparents Day is a time when families can gather together and celebrate the traditions that make them special. Observed on the second Sunday in September, this is a wonderful time to let grandparents articulate the significance of things that are special to your family. If there are certain flowers or plants that hold special meaning, include them as centerpieces for your lunch, or bring them to your grandparents to show them how much they mean to you. Talk to the floral designers at Rebel Hill Florist about our many pieces you can choose for your family gathering.
Rebel Hill Florist invites you to sit back, relax and breathe a sigh of relief this Labor Day—after all, that’s what this day was intended for. In the 19th century, it was proposed that the American worker deserved both a day of recognition and a day of rest, and ultimately, the first Monday in September was adopted by the nation for this purpose. Now, we think of Labor Day weekend as the second in a pair of bookends to summer, a time when we try to get one last trip in or to gather with friends and family for one last true summer barbecue. And while that’s all well and good, this is also the perfect moment for some self-care, the chance to both refresh yourself and your space.
Rebel Hill Florist is enamored of the humble worker bee—and we think you should be, too.
After all, this industrious little insect pollinates at least 90 commercially-grown crops, as well as 80% of all flowering plants. Without them, we’d be missing everything from apples and avocados to coffee and carrots. Over millions of years, bees have adapted into efficient machines for transporting both nectar and pollen back to their colonies, which can consist of anywhere from 10,000 to 60,000 bees. There, they turn that nectar into honey and bee bread, a nutrient-rich food source. And along the way, they pollinate thousands and thousands of plants, which is the only way those plants will grow. How do they do it?
Rebel Hill Florist knows that feeling you get when you arrive home with fresh flowers or receive them at the door as a gift. After admiring them from every angle, you’ll be faced with where to display them in your home. Should it be the dining room table? The mantel? The foyer? On the credenza behind the couch? In short, where should those flowers live?
Depends on the flowers. A highly fragrant design may not be the best choice for a dining area, while a humidity-loving orchid could thrive next to the tub in the bathroom. A small, compact grouping of flowers looks just right on a desk, while flowers with dramatic scale (like gladiolus) make a glorious entryway or living room piece. The point is, know thy flowers.
The start of school is just around the corner, and we’ve got one other thing to add to your school supplies list—a teacher gift.
We know, we know. Typically we offer the teachers, administrators and staff in our lives a gift at the end of the year as a way to say “job well done” and to express our gratitude for all of their efforts. And while Rebel Hill Florist isn’t suggesting you forgo that custom, we are suggesting that you add a new one, offering your child’s educators (or yours) a little something at the start of the year as well. Why? It establishes a positive relationship right away. It gives the teacher something to set right on her desk, brightening it up and bringing nature into the classroom. And if you choose wisely, your gift can be something that endures all year.
We are wild about flowers of every kind here at Rebel Hill Florist, and we especially love a good festival celebrating flowers. When we come across one that also encompasses culture, music, and food, we’re all in. That’s why we get so excited about the Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival every year!
Using flowers or music to communicate a message to someone special can often be more effective than simply saying what you want to say. The floral artisans at Rebel Hill Florist know the power of sending a beautiful bouquet. We also know that a well-chosen song can mean a lot, so we’ve devised our own floral playlist to go with the flowers you choose.
