Lexington Floral on Pinterest

Lexington Floral joined Pinterest! We have been hearing a lot of buzz about Pinterest lately and wanted to see what it was all about. Brides often will bring in photos found on Pinterest or e-mail links to their pinboards. We wanted to take the opportunity to share photos of our floral work with everyone!

What is Pinterest?

  • Pinterest is a website that allows users to organize and share all the beautiful things that are found on the web. People use pinboards to plan their wedding, decorate their homes and organize.

Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick's day is only a few days away! 

Each year Lexington Floral orders a few special green flowers to help our customers celebrate. Why green on Saint Patrick's Day? Originally the color associated with Saint Patrick's day was blue, over time the color green became more affiliated with Saint Patrick's day. Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration as early as the 17th century.
