There is always a lot to keep track of and take into account when planning a wedding. From location to flowers, it’s easy for something to slip through the cracks. Today we are sharing 4 tips for planning a spring wedding so that you don’t miss out on including the beauty of the season into your celebration!
When planning a spring wedding, weather can effect everything from location to flower selection. Spring has everything from sunny days to rain showers, but rain doesn’t have to ruin your wedding day. If you are prepared for possible shifts in weather, you can enjoy your special day without fear of weather-related mishaps.
Each season brings a wide array of blooming flowers with it, and spring is no exception! When choosing flowers it is important to take into account not only what flowers are in season, but also your wedding colors, style, and theme. Depending upon your wedding aesthetic, the flowers you choose can vary drastically, so it’s important to consider what is available when planning a spring wedding.
Spring is a great time to play with color! Whether you are having a classic spring wedding or want to add a splash of color, the color palette of spring holds many possibilities! If you want to embrace the colors of spring while still remaining in the style of a traditional wedding, we recommend pastel as an option that blends the best of both worlds!
Weddings are a beautiful experience that you will cherish in memory and photos. The amount of sunlight varies from one season to another, so it is important to take the lighting into account when planning your spring wedding timeline. As spring moves into summer, the amount of daylight increases, which can effect your wedding timeline. Whether you are planning to take bridal portraits at golden hour or have your first dance at sunset, lighting can make a large impact on the atmosphere of your wedding.
When planning a wedding there are several aspects to take into consideration. Our 4 tips for planning a spring wedding will help any couple to create a day that they will cherish.

When working in an office, there are several jobs that if left unchecked, could impact the company’s success. Administration Professionals Week, or Admin Day, is a holiday dedicated to recognizing the work that administrative employees do to keep businesses running smoothly. Choosing the perfect gift for an employee or colleague can be difficult, so today we are sharing 4 Gift Ideas for Admin Day that are sure to make any recipient feel appreciated.
Having an office that is cheerful is an important component in efficiency and enjoyment when at work. If your Admin’s desk could use a pick-me-up, consider giving them a fresh flowers. There are several different kinds of flowers and arrangements to suit any style or budget. If your Admin has a favorite flower or color, consider taking that into account when choosing an arrangement. No matter what type of arrangement you choose, flowers are a great gift for Admin Day to show that you care.
If your Admin isn’t a fan of plants or flowers, consider giving them a gift basket. Administrative employees do so much work for their employers, so give them the relaxation they deserve with a self care gift basket. A basket of bath products ranging from soap to bath bombs is a great way to show that you care. If self care isn’t something your Admin would enjoy, consider a basket of home-care products or gourmet snacks. There are a variety of different gift basket options that would make a great gift for Admin Day.
Flowers are a great way to brighten any office, but not everyone likes flowers. If you want to bring some life into your Admin’s office space, consider giving them a plant. There are several plant options, such as terrariums that include living plants, but don’t require a lot of upkeep. Unlike cut flowers, plants continue living and can provide encouragement as their care for it helps it to grow. The level of care a plant needs varies from one to another, but with the right guidance you can find a plant to suit your Admins skill level. Whether you choose a green or blooming plant, giving a plant can make a wonderful gift for Admin Day.
Everyone loves beautiful fresh flowers, and there’s no better way to show your appreciation. While receiving flowers or plants can be nice, taking care of them can be a difficult task. Looking for something that will have a longer shelf life? Unlike real plants and flowers, silk versions look real, but will stay fresh long after real flowers would have wilted. Silk flowers and plants are available in a range of types and styles to fit any preference, budget, or space. For a personal touch, consider building your own arrangement using silk versions of your Admin’s favorite flowers. This allows you to take part in each element of the design process, adding a personal touch to this delightful gift for Admin Day.
Administration employees work everyday to make the businesses around us achieve their goals. Give them a gift for Admin Day that will help them to de-stress and get the relaxation that they deserve.

There are several elements to consider when throwing any party, and Easter is no exception. From flowers to dishes, each element of the place-setting comes together to create a color palette and mood that will effect the party as a whole. To help make your Easter as memorable as possible, we are sharing two Easter Carrot Centerpieces that will Carry You Through Spring that are sure to make any bunny jump for joy!
If you want to add an elegant twist to your Easter tablescape, consider using carrots in our centerpiece! Using a clear vase, add whole carrots into the water at the base of the arrangement, and incorporate the flowers as normal. The stems of the flowers mix with the carrots, bringing the vibrant orange hues from the daisies into the base of the arrangement. We enhanced the Easter centerpiece by adding Herend china with gold and green butterfly accents, and accessorizing with Herend bunny figurines to make this carrot arrangement stand out even more.
For a more casual atmosphere at your Easter get-together, use carrots and wildflowers for a plucked-from-the-garden feel. Use wire to string together enough carrots to go around the outside of your chosen vase, then use raffia to tie around the the center. Once the vase is covered with carrots, arrange your flowers as normal. The wild nature of the greenery mixed with the vegetable accents, create an arrangement full of country charm. To continue the casual look, we added clear glassware, woven rattan accents, and muted green tones to enhance this carrot arrangement Easter centerpiece.
Whether you are planning an elegant party or a casual gathering, choosing the right Easter centerpiece is an important component of any tablescape. Consider adding your own Easter Carrot Centerpieces To Help Carry You Through Spring, and make your feast fit for a bunny.
To see the process of making the two arrangements shared in this post, check out our YouTube video here.

Spring is a time for renewal, and nothing embodies that feeling more than Easter. In spring, nature brings new life in the form of blooming flowers and sunshine. As the days get longer and the weather warmer, flowers spring forth to embody the hope of the season. Easter flowers are often brought into our homes or given to loved ones as a symbol of the season, but not every flower has the same meaning. Today we are sharing the 5 most popular Easter flowers and their meanings so that you can choose your blooms with confidence.
One of the most popular flowers to send or receive for Easter is an Easter Lily. Much like the holiday itself, Easter lilies symbolize purity and rebirth. Easter lilies are are often associated with Christianity and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, as observed on Easter. The large trumpet-shaped bloom stands-out compared to other lily varieties, making this unique plant one of the most popular Easter flowers.
Tulips are often associated with the bright and playful nature of the Spring season, which is matched in their meaning. While each color has its own interpretation, tulips as a flower often symbolize having a cheerful nature. More specifically, yellow tulips symbolize cheerful thoughts, white tulips mean forgiveness, pink tulips mean happiness, red tulips stand for love, and purple tulips symbolizes royalty. Though there are many options for Easter flowers, tulips are able to capture the rebirth of the season, while adding light to any space.
While other spring flowers symbolize rebirth or a cheery disposition, irises have a deeper meaning. Much like Easter lilies, irises most commonly embody faith, spirituality, and hope. The most popular color of iris, purple, is often associated with royalty. In combination with the purple hue, irises are thought to symbolize wisdom and courage, making them a great choice for Easter flowers.
One of the most recognizable Easter flowers are daffodils. Similar to Easter Lilies, Daffodils are marked by their trumpet shaped bloom. Daffodils are commonly thought to symbolize new beginnings and sunshine because of their bright yellow hue. Daffodils are one of the most resilient flowers and continue to come back every year. Much like spring, daffodils are a symbol of new life that returns with the season.
Spring brings a variety of colorful and unique blooms, but none of them are as timeless and classic as the daisy. While daisies grow in many colors, white daisies are most synonymous with springtime. Daisies symbolize purity and innocence as well as having a playful or childlike nature. Many Easter flowers capture the values of the season, and daisies are no exception.
Spring and Easter alike indicate a time of rebirth for not only nature, but every aspect of our lives. If you or your space are in need of a fresh start, any of these 5 most popular Easter flowers could be just the trick to lift your spirits.

“Guaranteed Satisfaction Since 1886”
We understand the anxiety and uncertainty around the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, and continue to take precautionary steps to protect our employees and customers’ health and safety.
As always, we have a wide selection of fresh floral arrangements, gourmet treats, exquisite home scents, and so much more available online and over the phone. Our drivers will now call recipients before floral deliveries to offer the option for deliveries to be placed outside doors or at reception desks to further minimize human-to-human contact.
In light of the uncertainty around COVID-19, Tipton & Hurst is happy to offer free order postponements or cancellations. However, we do ask for advance notice, particularly for specialty items. And, as always, we hope you will consider us for your next floral or gift order and event.
For years, we’ve used industrial cleaners to disinfect our work surfaces, containers and storage areas to minimize bacterial and viral growth and to prolong the life of our flowers. In the coming weeks, we will continue to follow these same stringent procedures, with additional cleanings of all hard surfaces in our stores to further protect our customers and staff.
In accordance with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we’ve encouraged all employees to follow proper hygiene practices, including frequent and thorough handwashing, and to practice social distancing, particularly if they feel they may be sick.
We look forward to serving you with our motto of “Guaranteed Satisfaction Since 1886”, either in our stores, over the phone at 501-666-3333, or at tiptonhurst.com, soon. Thank you.
Tipton & Hurst
For years, we’ve used DCD (a common floral disinfectant) to keep our flowers and workspaces free of bacteria and viruses. It’s long-lasting and doesn’t break down or evaporate as bleach would. Instead, it coats the area for days at a time. We’ve expanded our DCD usage to include all door handles and panels, countertops, all bathroom surfaces.
We’ve provided disposable nitrile gloves to all employees, but especially our delivery drivers. We feel that wearing gloves makes you more aware of your actions, including touching your face.
We’ve made hand sanitizer available to our customers at all doors, as well as paper towels to use as a barrier when opening doors.
No Contact Pickup
We’re now offering no contact pickup service. Place your order online or over the phone at 501-666-3333. When you’re ready to pick up your order, give us a call and let us know that you’d like to take advantage of no contact pickup. We’ll get your order ready and bring it to your car and place it in the backseat or trunk, depending on your preference.
Free No Contact Delivery
Our delivery drivers will be calling each recipient and giving them the option to accept the delivery in person or to have it left outside their house or at a reception desk to retrieve later.
