There are many different types of floral gifts that are perfect for guys – from traditional boutonnieres to modern arrangements with bold colors. Keep reading to learn more about these flowers and find the perfect one for your needs!

What is a boutonniere? How does it work?

A boutonniere is a small flower that is worn on the lapel of a suit or tuxedo. They are typically made with one or two flowers and some greenery. Boutonnieres are usually worn by grooms, best men, and fathers of the bride or groom at weddings. They can also be worn by anyone attending a formal event such as a prom or dance.

Your Glow Boutonniere from Payne’s Florist in Fort Worth, TX

How boutonnieres are worn has changed over time. In the past, boutonnieres were pinned to the lapel with a boutonniere pin. Today, many florists will use a small amount of clear tape or fishing line to attach the boutonniere to the lapel. This ensures that the boutonniere stays in place and does not damage the clothing.

There are many different types of flowers that can be used for boutonnieres. The most popular flowers include roses, lilies, and carnations. However, any type of flower can be used as long as it is small and delicate.

When choosing a boutonniere, it is important to consider the color of the flowers and the time of year. For example, a boutonniere made with red roses would be appropriate for a winter wedding. A boutonniere made with yellow lilies would be perfect for a summer event.

Other Floral Gift Ideas for Dad and Other Guys

Boutonnieres may be the first thing people imagine when they think of flowers for men, but they certainly are not the only choice when it comes to selecting flowers for guys. We feature a wide selection of flowers and plants including flower arrangements

For Father’s Day, consider giving your dad a floral arrangement or a potted plant. Houseplants are a great way to add some life to his home, office, or man cave. If you’re looking for something more traditional, a bouquet of fresh flowers is always appreciated. Here are a few of our picks for dad this Father’s Day:

Orchids

Orchids make a perfect gift for dad on Father’s Day – or any other day of the year. Orchids are a type of flower that come in many different colors and sizes. They have a long-lasting bloom and a very strong fragrance. Orchids make a great boutonniere or centerpiece for any formal event and also make excellent gifts.

Carnations

Carnations are a type of flower that come in almost every color of the rainbow. They are often used in boutonnieres and corsages because they have a long-lasting bloom and can withstand being out of water for long periods of time. Because of their availability in so many different colors, we can design a personalized bouquet that matches the color scheme of his favorite sports team, club, or organization.

Succulents

Succulents also make excellent gifts for men because they are easy to care for and long-lasting. Hearty succulents come in many different colors and varieties, so it is easy to find one that dad will love. Since they require little sun, they can be placed in any room of the house and make a great addition to every type of décor.

Potted Plants

Another great gift idea for dad is a potted plant. Potted plants are available in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and shapes. They make a great addition to any office or home and can be placed on a desk, windowsill, or shelf. Potted plants are easy to care for and require very little maintenance.

Our most popular subscription is the monthly delivery subscription. When you choose this selection, your favorite local florists will design a one-of-a-kind flower arrangement featuring fresh seasonal flowers on or near the same date each month.

Unless special arrangements are made prior to delivery, each subscription bouquet will be designed with fresh seasonal flowers that are hand-selected by our professional floral designers.

Flowers, Valentine's Day

7 Pro Tips From Your Local Florist for Longer Lasting Flowers

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner which means it’s time to start thinking about flowers! If you’ve ever received flowers, you know the feeling of excitement that comes with seeing a beautiful arrangement delivered to your home or office. But what if the joy of receiving flowers could last longer?

Most people know the basics for keeping flowers alive longer: changing the water, keeping it in a cool place, and not leaving them in direct sunlight. But here are a few pro tips from the experienced floral designers at Payne’s Florist in Fort Worth, TX that will help make your flowers last as long as possible.

1. Choose a clear vase

One of the most obvious ways to make roses and other flowers last longer is by using a clear vase with a lot of water. Why clear? Because opaque vases make it much more difficult to monitor the water level – which almost always leads to under-watering and faster perishing flowers.

2. Condition your water (use flower food)

Lavish Love Bouquet by Payne’s Florist – Fort Worth, TX

Tap water is great for flowers, but nutrients are necessary if you want to extend their life. Flower food packets are just three ingredients mixed together to make a perfect environment for cut flowers. Bleach (bactericide) kills any bacteria or mold while sugar provides energy and water retention. Citric acid dissolves air bubbles and balances the pH level of the water.

To make more flower food at home, simply mix 1 teaspoon of sugar with 1 teaspoon of bleach and 2 teaspoons of lemon or lime juice with a quarter cup of warm water until fully dissolved.

3. Refresh them every day

Just a few minutes of care each day can have a substantial effect on the life of your flowers. Refreshing the water, trimming the stems, and adding new flower food, will prevent bacteria and keep your flowers looking their best.

Unlike many houseplants, it is nearly impossible to “over-water” your cut flowers (unless water is spilling over the top of the vase) so the bigger concern is not giving them enough. If you cannot give them a refresh every day then at least make sure they have plenty of water at all times.

4. Remove any leaves below the water line

If you’re looking for ways to make roses and other cut flowers last longer, this is a big one that often gets overlooked; cut off any leaves that are below the surface of the water, these will rot and cause bacteria growth which will shorten the life of your flowers.

5. Only touch the stems

Touching a flower is like touching fabric – it can be delicate and cause damage if you aren’t careful. It is important to avoid touching flowers except when removing them from their vase for trimming or fresh water. Touching these delicate pieces of art can easily cause damage and shorten the life of your flowers, so use stems as handles when you need to touch them instead of heads or petals.

6. Use pruning shears or your sharpest scissors

When cutting the stems, make sure to use a very sharp pair of scissors or knife if you do not have pruning shears available. Dull blades can crush the stems and damage them – which will also shorten their life span. Cutting the stems with a sharp implement not only ensures that you’ll get an even cut, but it also helps prevent them from getting crushed.

Cutting stems at least an inch from the bottom will allow otherwise clogged plants to reopen and absorb more water. Cutting them with a 45 degree angle creates larger openings near the base, which allows for greater absorption due to a larger exposed surface area.

7. Create a healthy environment

Your flowers’ environment plays a considerable role in how long they will last. Positioning your floral arrangement in a location where it won’t be exposed to direct sunlight will help prevent it from wilting prematurely.

Flowers have a special talent for retaining heat. If you’re trying to slow down the decay process, place your flowers in an area with temperatures between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit–but don’t worry if they’re room-temperature. It is also important to keep your flowers away from any fruits or vegetables because they release ethylene gas as they ripen – which poisons cut flowers and expedites wilting and browning.

By following these seven simple steps, you can keep your fresh flowers looking vibrant for as long as possible. Don’t forget that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner on Monday, February 14.

Now is the perfect time to send flowers with the best flower delivery and beautiful blooms from your local florist. At Payne’s Florist we offer same day flower delivery for Valentine’s Day flowers as well as birthdays, anniversaries, get well soon wishes, sympathy, or just to make someone smile in Fort Worth, TX and surrounding areas.

Don’t Forget Grandparents Day on Sunday, September 12

Grandparents Day is a national holiday or observance, celebrated each year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. This year it takes place on Sunday September 12. Contrary to popular misconception, Grandparents Day was not invented by greeting card companies, florists, restaurants, or any other business interest.

Fresh and Fabulous from Payne’s Florist is a highlight of our Grandparents Day category.

Instead, the origin of Grandparents Day can be traced back to 1956 when a mother from West Virginia named Marian McQuade helped organize a community celebration for people over 80 years of age. In doing so, she realized how many elderly care facility residents had been forgotten by their families.

She envisioned a holiday that would not only bring attention to the elderly population but would also honor all grandparents by celebrating the connections between generations. Her work paid off and in 1973 West Virginia became the first state to set aside a special day to celebrate grandparents. Three years later – in 1978 – her efforts resulted in Grandparents Day becoming a national holiday celebrated in every state.

Simple Celebration

Unlike many other popular holidays that honor people on a larger scale with parties and large gatherings, most Grandparents Day celebrations are small and intimate and often take place in homes, hospitals, and care facilities with close family members.

In fact, McQuade went to great lengths to keep the holiday less commercial and truer to its roots by refusing all donations and royalties associated with her efforts. She also spurned overtures from Hallmark who predicted that Grandparents Day would become the sixth biggest holiday on the calendar each year for greeting card sales.

Despite that, many families celebrate grandparents by giving gifts. Some families embrace the spirit of the holiday and encourage grandparents to share stories and give gifts to their grandchildren, especially personal gifts that celebrate special family traditions.

In most cases, family get-togethers do not need to be expensive or elaborate. The important thing is choosing activities the grandparent enjoys while fostering intergenerational connection. Sharing a simple meal or spending time to visit is enough to please most grandparents. Engaging with them by playing board games, cards, and puzzles are fun ways to spend time together. Grandparents Day is also a fantastic time to look at old pictures or share some family stories.

It Truly is the Thought That Counts

Perhaps the biggest reason why Grandparents Day has escaped commercial exploitation is because of holiday burnout. If that is truly the case, grandparents still should not let the occasion go by unnoticed. Most of the younger generation will be happy to participate even if they don’t have to plan. It is important to remember that true reason for holiday is to give grandparents a chance to show their love for – and spend their time with – their grandchildren.

If you are not able to get together in person, Grandparents Day is a terrific chance for you to call them, text them, video chat with them, or perhaps even write them a good old-fashioned hand-written letter or have your children draw some pictures for them to include in a card. Of course, you could also send them a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Payne’s Florist. We have options for everyone, and a simple surprise delivery is an easy, convenient, and personal way to make a memorable Grandparents Day.

As a Yes We Can florist, Payne’s proudly features same-day delivery in Fort Worth and surrounding areas in Texas for birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, get well soon wishes, sympathy, weddings, or even just because. Visit our store, located at 2201 Altamesa Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76134 or shop online 24/7.

Holidays, July 4th, Summer

Celebrate the 4th of July Weekend with Flowers from Payne’s Florist and Gifts


The 4th of July is a summertime celebration filled with fireworks, parades, picnics, and a lot of patriotic pride. While our original Independence Day took place way back in 1776, the party didn’t really get started until a year later when the first official celebration took place in Philadelphia. That celebration included many of the same festivities we still observe today.

Colorful Tribute Bouquet by Payne’s Florist, Fort Worth, TX

If you want to celebrate July 4th in style, do it with flowers! Decorating for this holiday is as easy as red, white, and blue – but that certainly does not limit your options! At Payne’s Florist we specialize in utilizing a variety of flowers in unique ways to really accentuate the spirit of the holiday.

One of our favorite parts of any holiday is the symbolism that goes along with some of the traditions. One example is the symbolic colors of the American flag. Red in the flag is said to symbolizes courage, bravery, and passion. White serves a different purpose at it represents purity and innocence, and blue symbolizes vigilance, perseverance, and justice. Just like our nation’s flag, the colors of flowers are important and symbolic.

Roses, carnations, and gerbera daisies are some of the popular flowers traditionally used in Independence Day arrangements. Those flowers pair especially well with complementary white lilies, gladiolus, and mums. Blue delphinium is often used to round out the trio because it looks beautiful next to any shades of red and white. Even if arrangements do not stick to the traditional red, white, and blue designs, they can be accented with an American flag or some glittery firework accents for a festive finishing touch.

With a 3-day long Independence Day weekend coming up, now is the perfect time to honor a veteran, or decorate you yard for a 4th of July picnic. No matter how you choose to celebrate, Payne’s Florist has the flowers and inspiration to help you create a one-of-a-kind Fourth of July bouquet that will truly commemorate and celebrate our nation’s most historic day. Same day delivery in Fort Worth, TX or anywhere nationwide. Shop online 24/7 at paynesfloristandgifts.com or call us at 817-294-8941.

Flowers, Holidays, Mother's Day

This Mother’s Day, trust the designers at Payne’s Florist to create a one-of-a-kind gift she will never forget

Click to order a Designers’ Choice bouquet from Payne’s Florist in Fort Worth, TX

Mother’s Day is less than a week away, but the good news is you still have time to find the perfect gift for mom and have it hand-delivered to her door in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 9. Even better news is that you won’t have to travel far to find a gift that is so unique and special that we can guarantee she has never seen anything like it before. All it takes is the click of a button and a little faith the experienced floral design team at Payne’s Florist.

Ordering flowers online with the national retail companies can often be a frustrating experience. First you see a beautiful image of a perfect bouquet of flowers with a “special” price that seems too good to be true. The further along you get in the ordering process, the more fees, and charges you manage to rack up until you finally end up paying nearly as much in mysterious service and convenience fee as you did for the flowers!

Several days later your gift to mom will arrive in a box that will be left on her doorstep with the rest of the packages. Please don’t do that to mom (or yourself) this year when there are better, fresher, and more cost-effective options right here in town.

Why Choose Designers’ Choice?

If you want the most bang for you buck when ordering flowers, a “designers’ choice” bouquet is almost always the best option, no matter where you shop. Without having to replicate an image from the website, our designers are free to create something totally unique with the freshest flowers we have available in the shop.

You also won’t be disappointed by unrealistic expectations! No matter how delicious the dish, the food you receive at a restaurant will never look exactly like the picture on the menu. But that is what you ordered, so expectations have been set and that is what you expect the waiter to bring. If your food arrives looking less-than-camera-ready, you might be disappointed before even taking a bite.

We certainly don’t ever want you to be disappointed with your flowers, and we definitely don’t want to disappoint mom this Mother’s Day with an ordinary gift that looks like all the rest. Make this year one she will never forget with Mother’s Day flowers from your friends at Payne’s Florist and Gifts. Same-day delivery is available in Fort Worth, TX and surrounding areas, or anywhere in the USA for birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, get well wishes, thank you, sympathy, or even just because!

Holidays, Uncategorized, Valentine's Day

Beyond Red Roses: A Valentine’s Day Guide for Selecting Something Unexpected

Valentine’s Day is one of our favorite holidays of the year because it is all about love and happiness! It is a chance to show loved ones – or those we secretly admire – that we think they are special, and we reward them with gifts to show our appreciation.

On the surface, that sounds fantastic. We all spread love around and everyone gets presents, what could possibly go wrong? Well, a lot if you do not know what your Valentine’s expectations are and you underdeliver on an occasion that is practically set up on a tee for you to knock it out of the park.

Couples celebrating their first Valentine’s Day together without knowing the other partner’s expectations ahead of time could be headed for hurt feelings, or even disaster if they are not on the same page and the gift misses the mark.

For those who do not know a daisy from a daffodil, we’re here to help you find the perfect gift of flowers for Valentine’s Day that should exceed just about every expectation. Although you should definitely consider some chocolates and perhaps a plush animal just to be on the safe side!

Red Roses

Love’s Divine Bouquet by Payne’s Florist, Fort Worth, TX

Red roses are the quintessential gift for Valentine’s Day. If your Valentine is expecting flowers, this is likely what they have in mind. You cannot go wrong with a dozen (or two) long-stem roses, but you CAN be more creative than that!

A dozen roses show you care, but they also suggest that you did not put a great deal of thought into the gift and instead just went with the safe choice. For many, this is more than enough, but if you really want to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember, you need to consider additional options in order to watch your Valentine’s face light up after you exceed their expectations.

One of our favorite Valentine’s Day bouquets is Payne’s Love Divine Bouquet Featuring Long Stem Roses. This jaw-dropping design not only features the signature red roses but enhances them with vivid white roses to make it extra special.

Haute Pink Bouquet by Payne’s Florist, Fort Worth, TX

Another terrific option is our Payne’s Starry Eyed which perfectly pairs red roses with fragrant stargazer lilies to truly make it stand out from a crowd. For something completely different, why not surprise your valentine with Payne’s Haute Pink Bouquet? This wonderful bouquet bucks the trend of traditional Valentine’s Day flowers by putting a new spin on a classic traditional gift.

No matter which gift you give your Valentine, be sure to order as early as possible in order to choose from the best selection. Just like a great bakery or a terrific barbeque restaurant, the early bird gets the worm and the selections become limited the closer we get to the big day. Ordering early will also help you secure your preferred delivery date before they are full.

Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? Payne’s Florist has you covered with an incredible selection of Valentine’s Day flowers and gifts. We offer same-day delivery in Fort Worth, TX, and surrounding areas for birthdays,  anniversariesnew babiesget well soon, sympathy, or even just because.

Christmas

Holiday Shopping in 2020

The good news is we have reached the end of 2020 – a year will forever be remembered by the unprecedented impact it had on our world. The reality is that the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic has ushered in many changes throughout every aspect of our lives, from how we live and work to how we interact and shop.

The small-business owner, in many cases the heart and soul of a city or neighborhood, was hit particularly hard by the restrictions, mandatory closings and sudden rule changes that often left them scrambling to keep their lights on. Shoppers too were forced to adapt to new methods of procuring goods and services while trying to remain as safe as possible.

There are many lessons to be learned from 2020, but perhaps the most important is refocusing on serving each individual customer and offering them the safest and most efficient way of shopping. When corporations like Amazon allow people to shop for nearly anything they can dream of and have it delivered to their door in two days, it sets the bar high for rest of the retail industry.

But why wait that long?

Your friends at Payne’s Florist and Gifts can deliver your gift by hand – the same day your place your order!  Not only that, but you can order online any time you like from the safety and comfort of your own home. Christmas flowers, wreaths, plants, and centerpieces from Payne’s Florist and Gifts make outstanding holiday gifts for everyone on your list.
