This month we look forward to celebrating Bosses Day. Employees nationwide will be gifting their superiors with cards, gifts and flowers to show honor, respect and gratitude to the men and women who run their place of work. Bosses are often the people in our lives who took a chance when they hired us, who have mentored us as we stretch our wings, and who encourage us to bring out our best. Show your boss how much you appreciate him or her this October 16th with a gorgeous plant or bouquet of flowers from Adrian Durban Florist and trust that their day will be made much brighter.
This month marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15th to October 15th each year. For Hispanic Americans, this 30-day period includes the Independence Day for many Latin American countries. Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence on September 15, while Mexico, Chile and Belize do so shortly after, on September 16, 18, and 21, respectively. This year Adrian Durban Florist joins members of these nations in celebrating everything Hispanic Americans have contributed to our culture and society with gorgeous floral arrangements with Hispanic American roots.
Decorating your office space with fresh flowers can be a great opportunity to introduce bold tones and colors to an otherwise neutral area. Offices and work spaces are often kept calm and neutral to promote productivity. But influencing your space with a splash of color that’s all you is a great way to add your personality to your work area. The floral designers at Adrian Durban Florist have some beautiful, jewel-toned arrangements that will pop in any work setting, giving you the burst of energy you need to keep going strong.
As fall approaches, we look for creative ways to bring friends and family together for an unforgettable dining experience. Incorporating unusual ingredients or food offerings is a great way to add a unique twist to your next brunch or dinner party. Adrian Durban Florists suggests that you try adding edible flowers to your favorite dish or cocktails to delight guests and infuse your event with a shot of the unexpected.
The idea of taking care of ourselves can sometimes be a daunting thought, especially if you yourself are a caregiver. However, there are plenty of simple ways to take care of yourself physically and mentally that will have multiple benefits for your overall health. A few minutes of deep breathing, a walk in a nearby park, or surrounding yourself with oxygen-giving plants are all ways to easily give your mind and body refreshment. Adrian Durban Florist suggests filling your home or work space with oxygen-giving plants that calm the atmosphere and create a sense of serenity within.
The moment you bring a new baby home from the hospital is amazing and overwhelming all at once. To know that you have a significant support system around you is often a huge relief and can fill new parents with the feeling that everyone else is just as excited as they are about this new bundle of joy. That’s why Adrian Durban Florist recommends sending or bringing a beautiful bouquet of flowers to the new parents. Celebrate this life-changing event with them and remind them that they are not alone in this new adventure.
Each September, a Sunday is set aside to honor and acknowledge grandparents everywhere. Grandparents Day was established in 1979 as a National Holiday to celebrate the connection between grandparents and grandchildren. This generational bridge can be forged in many ways. Have children bring gifts, bake treats, or bring grandparents on an outing to celebrate their unique relationship. The memories they make together will be cherished throughout generations. The floral designers at Adrian Durban Florist recommend sending or bringing your grandparents a bouquet of their favorite flowers that are significant to your family.
As Labor Day approaches, we are once again faced with the fashion dilemma of putting away our whites for next summer or breaking the rules in a trendy way to include white whenever we choose. Since the late 1800s, fashion experts from the well-to-do have promoted white clothing and decor during summer months, with the caveat that it must be put away at Labor Day for more fall-friendly hues. If you are a traditionalist that loves to stick to classic rules, Adrian Durban Florist suggests incorporating an all-white bouquet in your decorating scheme as a final farewell to all things summer.
As the warm summer days melt into August, you may have noticed a larger variety of bees and other insects in your garden or neighborhood. This isn’t a bad thing- in fact, bees are completely necessary to our ecosystem. Their pollinating activity accounts for 90% of the world’s food sources. However, they are starting to become an endangered species, in part due to climate change and habitat loss, but especially due to the overuse of pesticides on flowers and crops. Adrian Durban Florist encourages you to limit your use of pesticides in your own garden, and buy farm fresh, local flowers whenever possible. We have some excellent choices to recommend!
