Blog Posts

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!
