Even though it’s still hot outside, students everywhere are preparing for school, gathering supplies and last-minute necessities. College students are thinking about dorm life and all of the adventure colleges holds. For some, this may be their first experience living away from home. This is a huge transition, but with a little help from the floral team at Al’s Florist, you can help your student decorate the dorm room and leave him or her with a few reminders of home. One way to bring a little bit of home to your student’s dorm room is with a beautiful plant or dish garden. Succulents are especially easy to care for, and often don’t take up a lot of space. And, having plants- especially succulents- in your living space is known to increase the quality of air in the room. Both you and your student will breathe easier knowing that you’re thinking about him or her, even if you’re far away.
A beautiful example of a succulent garden is our Sensational Succulents design, featured above. With a variety of bright greens and tough leaves, these little plants will endure and thrive in dorm life, just like your student.
Another way to let your student know you have his interests at heart is with his favorite snacks. Leave him with a bucket full of his favorite treats to share or save for late-night studying. Our Junk Food Basket, shown here, is a great way to fill him up and remind him that you’re thinking about him. Maybe she needs a pick-me-up as she’s writing her midterm papers. This Junk Food Fantasy basket, featured here, has treats that will hit the spot and keep her going all semester. There’s even enough to share, making her a favorite with her roommates!
A combination of peace lily and snack basket, the Plant & Snack Basket (seen here) will leave a lasting reminder of home long after the snacks are gone. Your student can then use the basket to keep small items organized in tight living quarters.
