Pantone, keepers of all things color, recently announced their 2018 pick for Color of the Year, and it's a doozy: Ultra Violet, a rich, daring, offbeat purple that calls to mind the cosmos and definitely looks ahead to the future. We here at Adrian Durban Florist believe a color with this much drama looks especially great when introduced into the home in winter, and at the turn of the year, no less. It's a great opportunity to update your home's look, and even if purple may feel like an unorthodox choice at first, you'll quickly become accustomed to this jewel-toned hue.

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 »
