Different Flowers for Different Occasions

Different flowers convey different meanings and different emotions. Most people, however, know only about roses, which are often associated with love and affection. If you are going to send some flowers, or if you want to start sending flowers, you need to know the various classification of flower types and the occasions on which you might want to send them. The art of knowing which flower to send will make you a better communicator, and you will not have to deal with the embarrassment of sending the wrong flower type simply because you did not know what you were supposed to send. Read below for a brief guide on different flowers to deliver on different occasions.

A Rose Is A Rose !

On Valentine’s Day, we’ve taken the habit of offering sweet or fragrant gifts to our loved ones, but do we ever stop to think of the origins of this tradition?

Falling into Autumn

Fall is here! It’s getting harder to ignore the beautiful colored leaves and the chilly wind of the new season! In the spirit of harvest time, Westmount Florist is redecorating in favor of rich, warm tones and colorful gourds.

Papa, Father, Padre, Pop, Dad..

Whatever name they go by, when it comes time to think of gifts for them, thoughts generally run the gamut of he-man gifts – rarely flowers. But yes……REAL men love flowers too ! They may sometimes act like they don’t, but that’s just dad laying out the rules in the Old School Testosterone Playbook. The same playbook that says real men don’t cry and shouldn’t wear pink.

Fabulous at 50 !

Turning 50 in life can be exciting and traumatic at the same time. Your body starts to do things you never thought could happen to you and your body can’t do things you thought you’d be able to do forever !! While turning the big 5-0 for me was exciting and really didn’t take too much work the thought of a business turning 50 takes a tremendous amount of work. Very few business make it to that amazing milestone and I am so proud to be able to along with my family carry on what our fabulous father and mother started 50 years ago. I know for a fact that unlike my turning 50, Westmount Florist turning 50 took a whole lot of hard work every single year.

A Very Special Event

Over the years we have been able to create events and arrangements for a vast spectrum of cultures and religions. I still remember the fist time I heard the word chuppah and wondered what it meant. Fast forward 27 years and I’ve probably decorated over a hundred of them.
