Fill a wooden bucket or galvanized metal pot with some of the hardy plants, fruits and vegetables fall offers for a modern cornucopia.
Floating votives have never looked sweeter than when they’re actually mini-pumpkins. Carve small pumpkins and insert tea lights, then float in shallow water with a few fall leaves for a rustic fall look.
Create a fall topiary out of colorful pumpkins, gourds, artichokes, radishes, kale and plenty of fall herbs. Anything goes as you stack bowls and plates for a three-tiered display of every autumn veggie you can find. Read More about Fall Up Your Table »

September is self-care month and we have some great ideas about using plants to create harmony and balance for you. Since plants produce oxygen and consume carbon dioxide, they create an environment that helps you focus better. Surrounding yourself with beautiful potted plants or dish gardens at work can actually freshen the air around you, relaxing and calming you and your coworkers. For a healthy gift option, have desktop plants delivered to coworkers for holidays and birthdays. Fargo florist Shotwell Floral & Greenhouse suggests perusing our wide selection of gorgeous plants for your office environment. Read More about September Is Self-Care Awareness Month: Get Plants! »

Shotwell Floral loves a good tradition, and why shouldn't we? We've been in business since 1888, and we've seen hundreds upon hundreds of floral gifts exchanged. We've seen them offered for the arrival of a baby, as is traditional. We've created designs fit for a housewarming party or a hostess gift, as is customary. We've provided sympathy wreaths and arrangements filled with symbolic flowers and made anniversary pieces that pull in the most meaningful blooms for that year. Whether your occasion is a personal tradition unique to you, or a milestone one that's been around for centuries, the right flowers can make all the difference.
