The friendly bloom bearers at George K. Walker Florist have embellished special occasions with fresh, colorful floral arrangements for almost 40 years. The FTD orchid trio ($50.99+) croon a floral-scented lullaby from their perches in three 4-inch ceramic vases, and the yellow lily, yellow roses, and other sunshine-colored blossoms in an FTD Flourishing Garden basket ($49.99+) can cheer up a morose coffee table still moping over its argument with the living-room couch. Alternatively, opt for a special-occasion package, such as an FTD birthday bouquet ($55.99+) bursting with gerbera daisies or an FTD Big Hug bouquet ($50.99+) that greets newborns with a vase of pillowy purple lisianthus grasped by a fuzzy 6-inch stuffed bear.
