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.
