As is customary around the end of October, and in preparation for Il Giorno dei Morti (All Souls Day/Day of the Dead) on November 2, Italian florists fill their shops with chrysanthemums. As these blooms come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors, what a beautiful display this must make! It is during this time that many Italian families visit the cemeteries to commemorate their dead by leaving fresh flowers at the gravesites of loved ones. Did you know that in Italy successful events in life are usually celebrated with a gift of sunflowers? Loved ones and close friends are often gifted sunflowers to commemorate an important achievement or goal in their life such as a graduation from high school or college or promotion at a job. Whether you need to send a gift of flowers or a lush green plant to Rome, Naples, Venice or Milan we've got the perfect gift and we're available around the clock to assist.
