AUTUMN HAS ARRIVED
5 Steps to a Cheerful Holiday Season
We simply can’t get enough of this month’s feature arrangement - Rosedale.
The arrival of the autumn season brings with it new containers including this sleek charcoal gray vase. A matte black rim tops a speckled base in this rounded vessel that is a perfect desk or side table size; a unique selection that speaks to the season.
Sure, it may be 90 degrees outside… but we’re already helping clients plan for holiday parties, Christmas poinsettias, and festive end-of-year thank you gifts! Follow these steps to keep your wintertime stress at a minimum and get off to a great start with holiday planning!
COLORS OF SUMMER
Can you believe it’s already August? It sure feels like it outside! We’ve been enjoying the A/C in store while working with funky protea, sweet-smelling garden roses, and local zinnias. You’ll find that we’ve recently refreshed our subscription services so that it’s simple and fun for you to order monthly deliveries for friends, family, and colleagues - or yourself. Is there anything better than monthly flowers delivered to your door? We don’t think so!
We’re celebrating the heat, summertime festivities, and fantastic selection of blooms available during this time of year!
IT'S ALMOST MOTHER'S DAY!
Though a surprise flower arrangement can certainly stand on its own as a beautiful gift, sometimes there is room for a little something extra. We’re so happy to work with three small businesses, two of which are right here in Austin, to showcase some tasty and gorgeous treats.
ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONALS DAY: WEDS 4/25
Whether you’re thinking of you mother, wife, or favorite mother-figure this weekend, we’re here to help with some beautiful blooms or a unique succulent garden. Delivery spots are filling fast for every day this week including Saturday. Be sure to place your order sooner rather than later to secure your spot! We’re delivering to moms at work, at home, and the restaurants where she’ll be enjoying brunch or dinner.
We love the idea of a holiday to celebrate the colleagues and employees in our lives that help each day run as smoothly as possible. This year we’ve curated a collection for Administrative Professionals Week that provide a special and unique option for every type of professional as well as every budget. We’ve chosen three of our favorites based on just what you’re hoping to say this year.
LAST MINUTE DELIVERY?
A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of assisting with a very special surprise birthday party at the lovely Josephine House. It’s always so thrilling to be entrusted with setting the scene for important occasions like this one. We couldn’t resist sharing some of the beautiful photos after the space was filled. Enjoy!
Who is your Valentine?
WE CAN HELP WITH THAT.
We’ve all been there. Busy lives mean that sometimes we don’t quite remember special occasions. That is until we receive an email reminder from a certain social media platform halfway through the day… Yikes! At King Florist, one of our favorite things is to hear the sigh of relief on the other end of the phone line as we explain, “We’d be happy to help!”
Meet the Team: Part One
It’s the most romantic time of the year!
We’ve curated a very special Valentine’s Day collection this year and were sure to consider every type of Valentine.
Say hello to our hardworking crew! We’ll be introducing ourselves throughout our next few posts to give you a bit of insight into our team and why we love what we do. We are a group of passionate people and we’re happy every day to share our passion (and a bit of our story) with you!
We’re here to help you say thank you to your clients and colleagues. The Corporate Collection contains our hand-picked favorites for gift-giving. Updated seasonally, this page features succulent gardens, floral arrangements, orchids, and plants. We work with a variety of different businesses in the area including luxury car dealerships, realty groups, and medical practices who receive a 10% discount on each order they place with us. It’s our way of showing our appreciation for trusting us with your important gifts.
Behind the Scenes at King Florist
Autumn has arrived and with it brought crisp Austin mornings and weekend days at the pumpkin patch. At King Florist, this time of year means more texture, rich jewel tones, earthy hues, and arrangements inspired by the harvest season. Now that Halloween has passed, we’re beginning to think about holiday time spent with family and friends. Our newest designs reflect a feeling a coziness and special emotions that surround the Thanksgiving time of year.
The Season between the Seasons
We invite you into our world today to follow a floral order as it makes its way from us here at King Florist to your family or friends! Whether you've browsed our new collectionsonline, or spoken with our team on the phone, your gift makes its way through multiple steps before reaching its final destination.
For those who love the summertime, September seems like a sad ending to a delightful movie. Gone are the carefree days of sunscreen and swimming, road trips and barbecues. Coming are the shorter days and dropping temperatures.
For those who love autumn, September is a little like the day before your birthday party. Anticipatory and eager, all you can do is wait. No amount of whining will bring the changing leaves and pumpkin-flavored-everything any faster.
Here at King Florist, we'd like to cure your between-season blues...
Our Summer Arrangements are Steeped in Color
And aren't we so grateful for teachers? Don't we appreciate the hard work they put in to educate our children and mold them into beneficial members of society? Let's not let it be a thankless job.
Wedding Greenery Garland
As we near the end of July, the heat of summer is in full force here in Austin, TX. While our lawns might be looking a little crispy and our drought-tolerant shrubs are being put to the test outside, the fresh cut flower stems inside King Florist are being well taken care of. In fact, around here, it just looks like the flowers have been left to steep in color for a bit longer than normal.
Administrative Professionals Day - April 26th
Austin Flower Market, the wholesale floral branch of the King Florist Group, is the perfect place for the more DIY-inclined bride. We carry a wide variety of seasonal flowers as well as bulk succulents. And now, we're offering greenery garland, a versatile and lovely addition to any wedding design.
Don't Eat Your Floral Arrangement
When was the last time you offered a sincere "Thank You" to the Administrative Professional in your life? Now is your chance.
Spring seems to be making an early appearance here in Austin this year. Warmer temperatures and budding Texas Mountain Laurel are sure indicators. I even caught a glimpse of a few Bluebonnets along Mopac last week.
