Next is the Sweetest Day. The first Sweetest Day started in Cleveland, Ohio by a candymaker and it has continued to grow in recognition as a positive way to help others. For every Sweetest Day order we receive, we are donating 100% of the proceeds for those orders to help 2nd and 7 Foundation, which helps to combat childhood literacy. f1

Then, there is your Mother-in-Law, a woman you treasure for bringing your spouse to you and supporting you and the family in every way she can. Give her an elegant floral display that shows her just how much she is loved. We have a wide range of luxurious flower arrangements. Or, you can even get a custom bouquet or custom flower arrangement with your Mother-in-Law’s favorite blooms and colors. We also have some great chocolates to add to your special order.

Finally, there’s Halloween. It’s a fun time of the year and really helps launch the upcoming weeks of special holidays that slide us directly into winter and the end of the year. Our Fall Splendor collection showcases some gorgeous designs, including everything from sophisticated to rustic. It also features special candles and fall gifts that add to this special time of the year. f2
