Growing up, there was nothing quite like Halloween. We dressed up as our favorite princess or superhero, often refusing to take the costume off for days. We ran door to door with our parents trailing behind, boldly declaring “Trick or Treat!” without a thought of playing a trick. Our focus was solely on what piece of candy the person at the door would choose to give us. Darkness wasn’t scary, the cool weather didn’t phase us, and bedtimes were easily passed by. For a child, Halloween was truly a magical evening.
As adults, there is no reason we cannot still celebrate Halloween, even though it may look a bit different. This year, how about sharing some memories by sending Halloween gifts to friends, colleagues or siblings? We have numerous gifts baskets and gourmet desserts that will deliver the treats right to their door – and although their craving for chocolate may be the same, the “sweets” have definitely matured.
For a festive Halloween bouquet to brighten a home or office, the Spooky Spider towers over his floral perch, giving us that creepy feeling as only spiders can. This arrangement makes a great seasonal addition to an office lobby, or as a centerpiece at your costume party.
But even if Halloween is not your thing, you can still send a beautiful autumnal floral arrangement that exudes all the cozy warmth of fall. Sunflowers, roses, lilies and gerbera daisies can all be combined for a quintessential fall bouquet; add berries, cattails or colorful fall foliage to make it even more charming.
Regardless of how you choose to observe this time of year, the wide variety of flowers and gifts at Billy Heroman’s makes it easy to find exactly the right selection. Happy Halloween, Baton Rouge!
