As we move into the New Year, we look for ways to improve ourselves, changes we can make to have a happier, healthier life. The floral experts at Adrian Durban Florist believe one simply, beautiful way to improve your health and your general outlook on life is by surrounding yourself with flowers. Here's why:
Flowers freshen the air. Bring plants and flowers into your home or office to purify the air, which will in turn provide clarity, focus and better productivity to your day.
Color boosts creativity. Remember how you had a favorite color as a kid? You still do. Surround yourself with bright colors that you love and watch your ability for creative thought blossom.
Fresh floral scents are a mood booster. Start the new year in a good mood with your favorite sweet-smelling flowers and fill the air with an uplifting mood. Read More about Have a Healthy New Year »

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.
