As we anticipate Thanksgiving, we also look ahead to two of the biggest consumer-spending days of the year: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Given the appealing sales and the amount of shopping we have to do for the holidays, it makes sense that we'd be shopping until we're dropping on those days. But we here at Adrian Durban Florist want to turn your attention to the next day on the list and the most important: Giving Tuesday. Read More about A Day for Giving »
No matter who spearheads the holiday decorating effort in your office, it probably involves pulling out the decor you have in storage somewhere from last year. Often, decking the workplace halls can be an occasion to relax with your colleagues, where you put on the Christmas music and break out the candy. Even the Scrooge-iest of coworkers has to admit - there's something really nice about seeing the office all dressed up for the holidays.
If you're anything like us at Adrian Durban Florist, you'll want to contribute some special flowers to the merry scene. Read More about Holiday Arrangements for a Festive Office »

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.

There are a dozen ways to honor our military this Veterans Day, whether you're heading to Cincinnati Public Library's annual celebration, joining one of the 5K runs or simply spending time with your beloved vet at home. We've been celebrating our country's finest in some form or another on November 11 since 1919, showering them with the attention and respect they deserve. Marches, parades and other festivities have historically been the way to do this, ever since President Calvin Coolidge called upon us to observe the holiday and offer our thanks. Adrian Durban Florist is doing its part to help you express your gratitude to someone who deserves it as well. Read More about Deliver Pride this Veterans Day »

In 1916, caring people across the Midwest established a new holiday tradition - Sweetest Day. Originally aimed at brightening the day of down-and-out neighbors, people would give out sweets and candies to help bring a smile. These days, Sweetest Day continues as a regional tradition, although it has spread to other parts of the country - and we think, should be celebrated everywhere!
October 21 is Sweetest Day, and gives us all the opportunity to identify people in our own lives who may need a little encouragement. Adrian Durban Florist has plenty of ideas for sweet gifts and flowers we know will convey your love and friendship. Read More about Acts of Kindness of Sweetest Day »
Fall is a special season - it overflows the senses with colorful landscapes, cinnamon spice aromas and apple and pumpkin delicacies. In autumn, the air is cooler but the vibe is warmer - and our imaginations tend to wander to family meals and football games with friends.

Fall flowers are rich, vibrant, and welcoming, and are sure to infuse the spirit of the season into your space. Read More about Floral Designs with Creative Fall Flair »
Recent studies have shown that the average adult spends one-third of their waking hours in a workplace. With so much of our life invested at the office, the relationships with the people we work with become very important. And the person who generally sets the tone for any place of business is the boss in charge. If you have a great boss, it can make all the difference in the world.
National Boss's Day is October 16, and gives us the opportunity to thank those employers, supervisors and bosses who lead with professionalism and competency. At Adrian Durban Florist, we have the plants, floral designs and gifts that will show them your appreciation with beauty and style. Read More about Boss’s Day is October 16 »
