Ready to get a preview of early summer's floral riches? Let's dive in.
Mary Murray's Flowers would never say which season is our favorite when it comes to flowers, but we will note that spring and summer, with so many blossoms in common, are a pretty darn spectacular time for florals, plants, greens, you name it. The emphasis is on lots and lots of color as well as texture (consider the frost-sensitive orchid and warm-weather fan sunflower), which translates to designs that have a lot of spunk and offer just as much interest. Think of it this way: we're not just decorating our indoor spaces or entryways in summer. We've got patios and picnic tables to adorn, plants to hang from the front porch, decks to line with pots of summer bloomers. To kick things off right, take a look at one of our brightest, boldest designs. Read More about A Splash Of Early Summer Flowers
Memorial Day is many things to many people---solemn occasion, three-day weekend---but one thing's for sure: it arrives on the cusp of summer. We might be commemorating the soldiers who touched our lives with their sacrifice and also gathering with friends and family for fun events. We may be attending parades or other poignant ceremonies, along with a barbecue or a pool party. It's that kind of weekend, and Mary Murray's Flowers understands it may call for flowers. Flowers to decorate the outdoor space where you're hosting that dinner party. Flowers to offer someone who is feeling the loss of a beloved hero. Flowers to put on a grave site or to bring as a hostess gift. Luckily, we've got you covered in every scenario. Read More about Make It A Memorable Memorial Day

How did you get into floral work? I got into the floral business totally by accident. I started out helping during a holiday to earn tuition money for law school. It was my first and only job. I have been at the same place for the last 30 years. Read More about Our Resident Mama Talks Kids & Flowers
In May, our local high school students will graduate, and there will be a host of parties and ceremonies happening to celebrate their accomplishments. No doubt you've got a beloved graduate in your life, a high school senior or two for whom you'll want to send your congratulations and best wishes for a bright future---you may even have a soon-to-be graduate in your own house. The Mary Murray's Flowers team is always working up gorgeous designs for a variety of occasions, but graduation is one of the most memorable, we think. It's often a time when young people receive a bouquet for the first time in their lives, and at the very least, it's a bouquet they will remember. That's why we think it's important to give something beautiful. Read More about Statement Flowers For Your Favorite Graduate
