Yes, You Can Give Your Dad A Gift Basket.

In case you were wondering, it’s perfectly fine—in fact preferable—to hand over a basket of goodies to dad this Father’s Day. Adrian Durban Florist sees a gift basket as the perfect solution to that what-to-get-dad conundrum, since a display of tasty delights, each one a surprise, is the kind of gift that delights anyone. One of the things we love about Father’s Day is how it brings everyone together in the home to celebrate that undersung hero of our lives, the one who is usually too busy thinking about everyone else to reserve a lot of time for himself, much less think about what gift he might want on the day devoted to him.

Adrian Durban Florist has plenty of arrangements well-suited to an exchange among women.

Pretty Posies To Help Them Get Well

There are so many reasons to give flowers to someone who is under the weather, especially if they’re in the hospital. A 2008 study put out by the American Society of Horticultural Science found that patients in the hospital use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure overall than their counterparts who don’t have a vase of flowers or potted plants in their rooms.

We all know a fresh grouping of blooms has the power to cheer anyone up, sick or well. But given the fact that flowers oxygenate a room and lift the spirits, we here at Adrian Durban Florist think giving them to someone who is sick is a no-brainer.

Appreciation Gifts for Nurses & Teachers

There are people who come into our lives – and whether for a few days, months, or years they make a lasting impact on our minds and hearts. This May, we are given the opportunity to celebrate two such people who undoubtedly have touched your life – teachers and nurses. Both are recognized in the second week of May, and both richly deserve the honor.  At Adrian Durban Florist, we are privileged to have the chance to recognize the unsung heroes in your life all year long, and we look forward to creating beautiful floral designs and gifts for these worthy recipients, whether in Cincinnati or beyond.

By The Numbers: A recent census showed that coincidentally, there are almost the exact same number of nurses as teachers in the United States – 3.1 million.

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” –Henry Brooks Adams
National Teachers Week is May 7-13.

Great teachers don’t only teach, they inspire, counsel, mentor, encourage, and set us on a path that will guide our lives. If your child has such a teacher now, or if you have always remembered a teacher from years gone by fondly – then May 9th is a great day to send them a gift to let them know that their efforts made a difference!  We love bright gerberas, lilies, and roses to adorn their desk – but you can choose any floral design to say thank you! We know they’ll love it.

“Our job as nurses is to cushion the sorrow and celebrate the joy; every day, while we are ‘just doing our jobs'”  – Christine Belle, RN, BSN

Nurses are by nature, givers. They give love, comfort, and strength to those in their care every day while knowing that in good situations or bad, those people will not be in their lives for very long. They must care deeply for people tey just met, and let go when it is time to send them home again. They are the most caring of people, and the strongest. If a nurse has experienced the joy of your new baby, or the pain of a loss right alongside you, let him or her know that they made an impact on your heart, with a beautiful floral design or delicious gift basket from our collection chosen especially for them.

There is no better way to travel through life than with gratitude. On these observances and every day, you can trust Adrian Durban Florist to create extraordinary floral designs that will touch their heart like they have touched yours.
