It is now strongly recommended that if you are needing to have Wedding Flowers in the next 6-9 months, you should start wedding planning with a florist as soon as possible.  Mayfield Florist is the premier florist in Tucson AZ specializing in the floral planning of elegant weddings. The flower shortage facing all florists is a combination of several factors. One thing is evident and that is most florists in the US and beyond are feeling the pressure. All are doing their very best to find ways to continue servicing their client base in the best way possible. At Mayfield Florist, we have a professional team of wedding planning experts and designers that create stunning flower bouquets. We would be honored and delighted to get started with you in planning your wedding. Flower Supply Challenges Global Pandemic - We all understand the impact this horrific event had worldwide. This 2020 event snowballed into effecting many different industries including Wholesale Flower Growers. Many had to shut down farms due to quarantine requirements. This in turn resulted in laying off many workers and destroying tons of flowers. Some farms have not reopened and appear to have gone out of business. Breaking it down further to real numbers, the National Association of Wholesale Distributors reported that there were 5.64 million employed in the US floral industry at the end of December 2020. That equates to 247,717 jobs lost between 2019 and 2020. That is the lowest level of floral industry employment in the past seven years. Then furthering the problem was the reduced number of flowers that were grown. Increased Number of Weddings - There is a huge increase in the number of weddings. Many were postponed due to the Pandemic. The U.S. Wedding Report study reported that in 2021 there were an estimated 1.93 million weddings scheduled. That number for 2022 has climbed to 2.47 million. This increase in the demand for wedding flowers coupled with the supply issues is making the problem worse. Mayfield Florist Bridal Bouquets Environmental Changes - Climates in some regions where flowers are grown have changed. In South America, they are reporting colder nights and more rainfall which has negatively affected flower production. Then domestically, many farms are located in California which as we know has been suffering from severe drought conditions. As people have gotten back to normal and begun planning events again, there are now fewer flowers and workers to load trucks. Sadly, many flowers are left to die in the heat because they cannot be loaded onto trucks. Foreign Political Pressures - In many parts of the world there are political unrest matters. This is true in Ecuador which is a major supplier of wholesale flowers. There are many [...]

A time for summer breaks from school, vacations with family and many outside activities.  In the Northern Hemisphere, summer is defined as the months of June, July and August. However, in the Southern Hemisphere summer occurs during the months of December, January and February. The summer solstice is the moment the Sun travels its greatest distance through the sky. This day of course has the most daylight of any other day in the year and therefore referred to by many as the longest day of the year. This actually marks the beginning of the astronomical summer, but we have already felt the warmer temperatures of summer for several weeks. July is typically the hottest day of the year because there is about a one-month lag between the solstice and the hottest temperatures. As you shop for summer flowers and plants, below are some popular varieties to consider: Sunflowers - These are beautiful in a vase. Our Sunflowers are shipping directly from growers and are picked before insects or other conditions have caused any damage.

Send Dad the Finest Father’s Day Floral Gifts from Mayfield Florist

Mayfield Florist No doubt you are anticipating and want to be ready for Father's Day on June 19th! The best action is to shop with Mayfield Florist for fresh and festive Father's Day Floral Gifts.  We have multiple varieties of flowers and plants that are popular for Father's Day. Flowers are a wonderful gift for dad. However, if you would prefer a Green or Flowering Plant, we offer an excellent selection designed just for Father's Day. Father's Day Brief History In 1915, a member of the Lions Club introduced the concept of Father's Day. The preference was for the day to occur on the third Sunday in June. The Lions Club International elected to give him the official designation as the "Originator of Father's Day" and he continued the quest to promote Father's Day as an official holiday. After receiving numerous requests for a special day to honor fathers, in 1916, President Wilson proclaimed a day should be recognized as a federal holiday. This was during a speech he gave in Spokane at a Father's Day celebration. However, when the concept reached Congress, it was denied. The majority of the members in Congress were concerned that it would become too commercialized, and the true meaning would be all about companies profiting. President Coolidge suggested a recognition for Father's Day in 1924. Then in 1957, Senator Margaret Chase Smith spoke out that Congress had been ignoring fathers for over 40 years and had only been honoring mothers. Then in 1966 the first proclamation of Father's Day was issued by President Lyndon B. Johnson. It was declared that the day to honor all fathers would be the third Sunday in June. This became a permanent holiday in 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed it into law. Popular Father's Day Floral Gifts Orange Lilies - These nice flowers are used to symbolize Peace, Harmony, Wealth and Joy. White Roses - Show dad that you honor him for his honor, reverence and spirituality by giving him White Roses. Yellow Roses - If you want dad to have joy and cheer, the Yellow Roses are perfect. This is because the yellow rose's bright color symbolizes the warmth of a sunny day and friendship. Peperomia - These are sometimes called radiator plants and are very hardy. They do not grow taller than one foot and have sturdy waxy leaves. Spider Plant - Sprouting delicate white flowers this plant from Africa makes a great hanging plant. Moth Orchid - These Orchids have a long life and are native to Southeastern Asia. They display butterfly - shaped flowers. Its relative is the Moon Orchid which is also very hardy. Lucky Bamboo - Very easy to grow, these plants are said to bring prosperity to the home. Zebra Plant - For a small space in the home, The Zebra Plant is often chosen. It is from Brazil and has a spiky appearance with white bands on the leaves. Aloe Vera - Most people know this plant has healing properties. [...]

Fun fact: Most of the world’s cut roses are grown in the mountains of Colombia and Ecuador.
