June is National Rose Month! The rose with its classic elegance is all about popularity. The rose ranks as 85% of people’s favorite flower and is the most given flower on Valentine’s Day. We love the rose so much that in 1986, it was declared the United States’ national flower.
Color Me Rose
The rose is all about variety as well, coming in a variety of hues. Each color symbolizes a different meaning or feeling. Below are a few of the popular colors with their meanings:
Red: Love, beauty, courage, respect
White: Purity, innocence, youthfulness, heavenly
Pink: Appreciation, gratitude, grace, admiration
Yellow: Friendship, joy, gladness, delight
Pass the Rose Please
Roses are not just beautiful to look at but also provide benefits for your health. Rose petals can help cure a sore throat or a runny nose. They may also aid in digestion. Rose hips are full of vitamins A, B3, C, D, and E as well as antioxidants. Many health food stores carry rose hip tea that can aid in the healing of infections.
Indulge in Roses: The Beneva Way
We love roses here at Beneva Flowers & Gifts. Check out our beautiful arrangements and order some roses today to celebrate June with us!
We were just advised that we are unable to hand out free roses at the Sarasota National Cemetery. Beneva Flowers would still like to offer a FREE rose to anyone to place on a headstone to honor someone who served. Roses will be available starting Saturday May 25th and during the entire Memorial Day weekend.
Every Memorial Day, many in our community visit local cemeteries to pay their respects to those who served in the United States Armed Forces.
This Memorial Day, Beneva Flowers is an official Memorial Day Florist in Sarasota and participating in the nationwide Memorial Day Flowers program and will set up a stand at Sarasota National Cemetery to give out roses to visitors.
Each visitor will receive 2 roses. 1 to place on a headstone to honor someone who served, another to take home in memory.
Beneva Flowers often supports various good causes, however this one is special and we are privileged to participate in honoring the people and families that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Flowers are a form of emotional expressions and a single stem placed on a headstone is an appropriate show of respect.
This program was started in 2012 at the Arlington Cemetery and this year, expanding around the USA to bring recognition to those to made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and their families. Thanks to the Herald Tribune who printed his story today, we have our volunteers to assist in our efforts. The roses are being donated by growers who want to help florists give back to our community. We are proud to only work with Fair Trade certified growers who care about the working environments of their employees and also our Veteran’s on such a special holiday like Memorial day. One of the effects of the fair trade system is that you are empowering people by not only paying them fair wages but also offering classes in rudimentary finance, accounting and project management to manage extra money they are paid. Beneva Flowers will only deal with certified growers who support Fair Trade practice.
Veterans save 10% when shopping at Beneva Flowers and can always have a FREE rose just for visiting. Thank You for all you have done for our country.
Yes local companies can also create a buzz and excitement selling flowers even if you don’t get it on the Superbowl. At 3.5 million the over 2 minute commercial created locally is in my opinion as fun to watch as anything I have yet to see airing tonight. Not only do I feel it is well done and allows people watching to interact and win a prize, it conveys how flowers can bring so many messages together in one hand delivered gift from a local florist. If you can guess and post on YOU TUBE how many hearts are in the bouquet you see in the commercial, you could win Gift cards from Ruth’s Chris steakhouse to Beneva Flowers and even tickets to see the great Nik Wallenda perform. Go ahead watch here and see how many Hearts you can find.
What is it like to come to work at Beneva everyday?
High energy, attention to every detail and ensuring that every person (not just customer) we come in contact with is treated like a friend. We want everyone (especially our Facebook fans) to know at Beneva, you have a friend in the business. From our customers to florists across the country, that is the goal of every employee.
We know everyone has a choice when the need arises for flowers. It is our goal to provide a product with service that has no other choice than Beneva. The very highest quality, selection at a fair price. My father always taught me to, “Make a little, sell a lot and never sacrifice quality.”
Since 1986 that has been our mission. Weddings were where the expression “Exceeding Your Expectations” started. When a bride visits our florist, they know we want to be a part of their new future together as well as. To do this we must always be fair and truly exceed expectations. Brides are, in many cases, overwhelmed from news stories, pictures online and so many options it can be a very confusing. When it comes to wedding planning, we like to listen and suggest, not sell. It is all about the bride and groom, it is their day. It is important to earn trust which is most important to us. There is no second chance.
On behalf of all of us at Beneva Flowers, THANK YOU Sarasota for voting Beneva Flowers #1 Florist for the past 15 consecutive years. It is for me, an accomplishment that means more than any, having earned the trust of our customers.
