Flowers have been long understood to offer many positive benefits to the mind and body, everything from improving clarity in the workplace to enhancing a person's mood in the home. And as this is the prime time for seasonal affective disorder, anything we can do to enhance our well being and mental outlook during the long, dark days is a good thing.
And when that thing is flowers, we at Adrian Durban Florist know exactly what to offer as the cure for the winter blues. Read More about Stunning Winter Flowers »

So you're hosting Thanksgiving this year. Lucky you. We at Adrian Durban Florist envy your position and wish we could host a thousand Thanksgivings.
No, we're not kidding.
Why are you so lucky? Because of the flowers, of course. If you like fresh blooms and love designing a room around them (or in conjunction with them), then Thanksgiving is like your dream holiday. So many richly-hued arrangements await, so many textures and scents, so many rustic baskets and cornucopias. You get to find that one showstopper piece to place on your table as you harvest up your home for your guests. And then eat. We have some ideas for the flowers (we'll leave the eating to you).

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year or have you been invited into someone else's home? If it's the latter, you're not alone. Last year, nearly 50 million people traveled at least 50 miles from home to enjoy Thanksgiving. That's a lot of hosting, and at Adrian Durban Florist, we think it should be rightfully acknowledged.
The tradition of bringing or sending a host or hostess gift is old and long, crossing cultures and involving its own customs. Here in the U.S., it's traditional to offer a bouquet of flowers in a vase. That way, the host or hostess has nothing to do but place your gift somewhere in the home and to enjoy it.

In a fast paced world, we sometimes lose some of our most time-honored traditions. But being neighborly is something we should never push to the side.
Traditionally, when new families moved into a neighborhood, the residents turned out to welcome them, introduce themselves, and make them feel at home. At Adrian Durban Florist, we are sure you will join us in saying that we love the custom - after all, moving into a new place can be stressful, and a few friendly faces are most welcome. Whether you bake a batch of cookies or send flowers to brighten their home - housewarming gifts are a thoughtful gesture that will go a long way to starting a beautiful friendship.

National Friendship Day and National Sisters Day are celebrated on the same Sunday this summer - August 6th.

Regardless of how this special lady entered your life, you couldn't imagine your world without her. Adrian Durban Florist has the beautiful floral designs that will let her know just how important she is to you.
Brief History: National Friendship Day was established by the U.S. Congress in 1935, but has been adopted by countries worldwide. Read More about Celebrate Bonds of Friendship & Sisterhood »
