What is a blog? Blog is officially a noun, defined as this:

“a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style”

We think this blog page is the perfect place for Roadrunner Florist to present blog posts and for you to join in the fun, too! Here we will discuss holidays, occasions, reasons to send gift baskets and flowers, exciting events occurring at Roadrunner Florist & Basket Express.  

You are invited to participate with us, and offer ideas and suggestions that you’d like us to discuss. Perhaps you have an upcoming wedding and you need ideas about flowers and pricing. Maybe you are planning a large party or corporate event. Then write to us and we’ll be happy to respond. Maybe you’re planning a conference or convention, or even a special birthday or baby shower! This is the place for you!

Pink!

Pink! Pink isn’t just a color, it’s an attitude! You’d be surprised how many people call us and say PINK is her favorite color! That always makes me smile, because it’s MY favorite color, too! And it was Pamela’s mother’s favorite color. It’s a soft, romantic color

Four!

Four! I love the English language, where one word can have 3 spellings and one pronunciation, like the word Four! Fore, Four and For come to mind. These words are called Homophones. Homophones are words which have the same pronunciation, but different spellings and meanings. Here are

Hullabaloo

Pamela

Hullabaloo There’s been a lot of hullabaloo about thinking “Outside the Box” these days.  There’s clamor and commotion and loss of stock value, all of which has lead me to think it’s imperative that we tell you more about Pamela and Tina, the flower shop girls who own

I Read the Other Day…

A Dozen Red Roses
