What’s a Rich Text element?

FGHFG

DDFGHDFGH

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

When it comes to Valentine’s Day you want to have the perfect gift, whether it's for your partner, your parents, your friend, or even yourself, whoever it is deserves to have the best on the day of love.

If you have the cash, spending money on a Valentine’s Day bouquet is worth the extra money, rather than the stocked flowers at your local grocery store. 

Florist’s flowers are unique, better cared for, and last longer than your typical flowers. And it goes a really long way to show that you care if the flowers you get are more personally designed instead of premade. 

In the Gahanna, Ohio area there are some select florists that you’ll definitely want to check out, and each has its own merits and Valentine’s Day deals. Each of them within a twenty-minute driving distance. Here are some of our favorites.

  • Oberer’s Flowers Inc
  • Ree’s Flowers and Fine Gifts
  • Expression Floral Design
  • Flowerama Columbus
  • Griffin’s Floral Design
  • Connells Maple Lee Flowers and Gifts

Read below for a breakdown of these floral shops.

Oberer’s Flowers Inc.

3950 Morse Crossing | Columbus | oberers.com 

An 11-minute drive from downtown Gahanna Oberer’s Flowers has that small town intimate atmosphere with a varied selection of flowers for your selection.

Founded by Carl Oberer in the late 1800s, Oberer’s Flowers has a long history with the Ohio area and has been family-run from Oberer to Oberer ever since its inception. And while the shop has ventured far beyond its initial market-selling roots it still has a local mindset.

But because of their growth, Oberer’s is the perfect option for anyone looking for a Valentine’s Day gift more out of the norm than a dozen red roses. Oberer’s selection ranges from the common purple orchid to the complexities of a potted African Violet. 

They have some wonderful traditional options for Valentine’s Day but here are some unorthodox choices that you should consider before buying.

  • A potted azalea tree as an option is definitely not a normal plant on the menu for the day of love but is a great long-term caring option for your giftee. Be sure to speak with the florist about specific plant care for this flowering bush but this option clearly shows more meaning and heart. 
  • How about a dutch garden, planted and ready to go? This adorable mini potted garden comes with hyacinth, tulips, daffodils, crocus, irises, and primroses for a spring touch to the home.
  • A sweet and salty snack tray isn’t exactly what you might expect from a florist but sometimes snacks are a better option. For those snack-lovers buy them a basket full of skittles, Cheetos, Twizzlers, and more.
