Love Blooms in PNC Park

PNC Sign

The PNC Park sign, along with the statue of Honus Wagner, greets fans as they enter the Park.

“Take me out to the ballgame…”

We at Parkway Florist are just hopeless romantics, and we love playing a small part in a great story.

PNC Park was the setting for our Friday, May 4th wedding. But the story is more than just a wedding at a cool place!

Robin & Nick are two neat  people who moved to Pittsburgh a few years ago for new career opportunities.   A casual meeting at a Pirates game led to more dating & eventually, an engagement.  Now, they love our city.  So….. As they began to plan their wedding, they made the decision to have both families travel to their new home city for the wedding.   What could be a more perfect place for the nuptials & reception than where they first  met – at  PNC Park!

Right at Home Plate is where the happy couple said “I do!”, with the skyline of our beautiful city in the background.  What could be more perfect?

Our Bride, as well as her Bridesmaids & flower girls, carried bouquets of yellow & white Gerber Daisies. Corsages & Boutonnieres also featured bright & fresh yellow Gerbers.

 

The reception moved inside to the Jim Beam Lounge. Festive centerpieces, featuring baseballs with the logos of several MLB teams (including the Pirates, of course!), were showcased against the black-clothed tables. Oh – and Cracker Jack were the wedding  favor of the day!!

 

Congratulations Robin & Nick!  Thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your love story!

3 Weddings and a ???

Saturday morning dawned and it was clear that any outdoor ceremonies were going to need to go to “Plan B” today.  The weather, it seemed, had a mind of its own.

Our day started with an 11 a.m. ceremony at Duquesne University Chapel.  Susan was a very  Traditional Bride, carrying a free-form cascade.

Our second wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral was all shades of peach, coral, and green.  Short, kicky dresses were the order of the day.

Our Bethel Park wedding was moved outside to inside.  Fun clutches of gerber daisies for the Bridesmaids, roses added for the bride, and our locally grown farm fresh bouquets gracing the reception tables.

Birthdays Have More Than Just Birthstones

I think it is safe to say that most of us are aware of what our birthstones and our astrological signs are. Yet, there are more meanings to our birthdays than just gems and stars. You guessed it, we have birth-flowers, too!

Can you guess what type of flower represents your month? Give it a try!

Take a look below to see if you were right, what your birth-flower is, and also the meanings that each birth-flower depicts.

January – Carnation/Snowdrop

These flowers stand for fascination, love, and consolation.

February – Violet/Primrose

These flowers stand for modesty, faithfulness, and virtue.

March – Jonquil/Daffodil

These flowers stand for regard, devotion, and sympathy.

April – Sweet Pea/Daisy

These flowers stand for innocence, bliss, and affection.

May – Lily of the Valley/Hawthorn

These flowers stand for sweetness, happiness, and hope.

June – Rose/Honeysuckle

These flowers stand for love and devotion.

July – Larkspur/Water Lily

These flowers stand for laughter and purity.

If you know someone whose birthday is soon approaching, try sending them an arrangement of their birthday flowers. You’ll be sure to score some creativity points!

Spring Forward With Flowers!

Sun leads to Spring, which then leads to the tulips, daisies, daffodils, etc. that are all arriving at the store. We’re excited, and you should be, too! All of this sun means flowers are soon to be blooming, while bringing with them the beautiful colors and scents back to Pittsburgh.

And, now that the sun is waking us every morning instead of snow(thank goodness), it will be a lot easier to roll out of bed to go out and enjoy the day. Not a morning person? Well, that’s something us florists can fix!

Forget about that morning cup of coffee, because there is something else that can brighten up your morning. According to research posted on the Society of American Florists’ Website, flowers are the perfect incentive for that morning moodiness.

Studies from this research have shown that placing flowers in the rooms most visited throughout the morning had put people in better moods, and had even increased their energy. How cool is that?!

The Society of American Florists’ Website also listed a few tips on how to truly perk up your mornings with flowers.

  • Be spontaneous with what you place your flowers in to ensure that the container suits your personality.
  • For a “sunny” feeling (which I would say is appropriate for the weather these past few days), incorporate flowers that are of the yellow or orange spectrums. For a special touch, add lemons or limes to the arrangement.
  • Match your flowers to your room palette to really accentuate the colors in that particular area of your home.
  • Set your flowers in an area that, at times, may get messy. This will help to ensure that your house will remain tidy.
