A fresh new look for the new year is this year’s Color of the Year: Living Coral. The energizing and vibrant yet mellow shade is going to be seen everywhere this season: in fashion, home design, and entertainment. Spice up your home or office this season with this animated and life-affirming coral hue with golden undertones that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. The floral experts at Ah Sam Florist suggest a simple, elegant way to incorporate this color in your immediate environment is with a gorgeous, coral-rich bouquet of flowers.
The New Year is a time for making changes and improvements to our lives. The floral experts at Ah Sam Florist believe that one of the best ways you can immediately improve your environment is with flowers! Surrounding yourself with beautiful plants and flowers is beneficial for multiple reasons:
- The fragrance of flowers is a natural mood booster. Even though the holidays are behind us, you can still lift spirits with a fresh bouquet of your favorite blooms that smell amazing.
- Color brings out creativity. Seeing a gorgeous gathering of your favorite colors is a quick way to improve your own creative energy and thoughts.
- Fresh air makes you healthy. Breathing purified air is a great relief from headaches, congestion and colds. Flowers and plants are natural air purifiers and odor-eliminators, so fill your home or office with plants and flowers that will keep you breathing easy!
While the holidays are a wonderful time to spend with friends, family and loved ones, this season can also bring a sadness for those who are no longer with us. One excellent way to honor their memory, their service to their community and our country, or their value in your family is to place a beautiful holiday wreath on their grave site. Wreaths Across America is a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery that you can participate in wherever you are. Choose a beautiful, hand-crafted wreath from Ah Sam Florist to honor and remember your loved ones this season.

Choose colorful fall leaves that compliment your tables decor. The floral expert at Ah Sam Florist also have some delightful centerpieces in our fall collection for you to choose from this season.
As we settle into fall, we begin to think about entertaining through the season. How you decorate your formal table says a lot about your style and creative energy. Let the floral experts at Ah Sam Florist share some tips and advice that will make your table look amazing this fall.
- Accent your table’s centerpiece with nature-inspired designs, like gourds in multiple shapes and sizes, succulents placed sweetly across the table or lovely scented pine cones amidst beautiful flowers.
- Let your tablescape reflect balanced energy with the inclusion of varied metals. Unique silverware patterns, candlesticks, and centerpiece containers in an array of metallic shimmers will have a softening effect on your table that will put guests at ease.
- Gorgeous, soft candlelight can bring a warmth to your dining room. Play with the sizes, shapes and colors of your candles for a mix-and-match effect (but make sure they’re still complementary).
This fall, bring a harvest-fresh feel to your home by decorating with gorgeous fall colors and textures. Use natural elements like pinecones, miniature pumpkins and crisp fall leaves or branches to add depth and texture to any room in your home. Utilize steps, mantles and tabletops to play with height and space in your decorating scheme. Include beautiful fall floral arrangements with natural accents to add color and dimension to your autumn presentation. The floral designers at Ah Sam Florist are eager to share our many tips and advice with you as you begin decorating this fall.
