Why You Should Send Flowers for Valentine's Day ?

Why You Should Send Flowers for Valentine's Day ?

Somewhere in your house is a closet hiding scary things. Things which you can't get rid of for fear of insulting someone important to you, but things you would never choose for yourself. And if you're lucky, you can locate the proper thing just before that someone important visits. There are probably some gadgets in somewhere in your house--things that seemed like a good idea at the time (possibly the last minute), but in hindsight, not so much.
This year, avoid banishing more tchotchkes and expensive electronics to that closet. Brighten her day with flowers instead. Not sure exactly what she likes? Don't worry about getting it wrong, they're neither permanent nor expensive, which makes them the perfect gift.


Listen, part of the beauty of flowers is their transience. Flowers fade in a vase just like they do in nature, but that doesn't diminish their beauty or their effect upon the recipient. Flowers brighten lives for a short period of time, and then they go away, leaving the recipient wanting more.

And if you're not sure of her favorite flower, send a mixed arrangement and see which flowers she prefers in the arrangement. When you find out, call (or e-mail) your florist--most of us keep notes on customer preferences, and we'll be more than happy to update your information with her likes and dislikes. Next time you order, we'll know what to do!

No expensive monthly fees, no long term commitments to ugly knick-knacks, no stress--call your local florist (early).

We'll take care of all the arrangements!

Holiday Photos here at Carey's Flowers

Ho Ho Ho and Happy Holidays!

It’s that time of year again! Time to take pictures of your family and little ones and turn them into my favorite kind of holiday card!

Because this is everyone’s favorite kind of card to receive we at Carey’s Flowers would like to offer the front inside area of our store as your backdrop. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a professional decorated background in your photos? Your little ones will look even better with the perfect holiday backdrop.

We would like to ask you all to call ahead to book a time slot. They will be booked in 15-minute increments. If you walk in without an appointment and a person with an appointment shows up you will be bumped for reasons of courtesy.

What do we provide – A smile, a beautiful background, and a time slot - the rest: camera, props, children, is up to you.

What do we expect – That you control all children you bring into the store, even children that will not be in the picture, but that come along just to watch. Also that you be on time and use your best holiday politeness with others, as children can get anxious when holiday pressures build for them.

Fall in New England

Who among us could honestly say Fall in New England is not the prettiest time of year? In western Mass. we start to see cars driving slowly down roads admiring all of natures beauty. With fall here Thanksgiving is only around the corner, time to be with family and friends and to remember all that we have to be thankful for living in this great country of ours. We at Carey's Flowers see college students who are waiting to see the first snow fall of their lives. The excitement is overwhelming for them and we often see them outside on the sidewalks cell phone in hand calling home to Hawaii or some other warm climate home when the first snow starts to fall. Ahh the beauty and wonder of nature. I am so happy and blessed to be able to work with, near, and around the beauty of fresh flowers everyday.

Carey's Flowers First Post

I am sure when the Carey Family open the doors to the flower shop in 1912 not one of them could even dream of computers, no less than the internet and blogging. However here we are today starting our first family blog.

We thought that perhaps giving out a family history would be a good place to start. From there we will move on to requested topics as well as ideas that come up along the way. We hope you enjoy Carey's Flowers bolg as much as you enjoy Carey's Flowers!
