Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts looks forward to Grandparents Day, a time when we honor our most beloved elders. For us, that was our very own William J. "Billy" Heroman, who we remember with love and affection this September 9. One of the most important things our grandparents pass down to us is a sense of tradition, a respect for certain customs and beliefs about how to treat other people and to honor the events of their lives. Today, we consider how flowers--and daisies in particular--do just that. Read More about Daisies That Carry On A Floral Tradition »
Is it ever the wrong time for white flowers? We here at Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts say no. During the holidays: a classically elegant palette. During the spring: a beautiful transition from the rich colors of winter to the pastel hues of the warmer season. During the summer: the perfect refresher after a long, hot, humid few months. But what about that Labor Day rule for white? You can toss it. That was a piece of etiquette intended for New York socialites in the 1800s. If that doesn't describe you, feel free to enjoy white in your fashion choices and in your home all year long, starting with flowers. Read More about Never Too Late Or Early For White Roses »
Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts is an enormous fan of bees, and you should be too. Why? Well, they're responsible for pollinating 70 of the top food crops we eat from. They help give us everything from avocados to coffee to flax to sweet, sweet mango. Simply put, our tables wouldn't look the same without them, whether we're talking food or flowers. These little workers have a big impact on our lives and on the planet. So what brings all the bees to the yard? Read More about Flowers Bees Love »
You may think that flowers will thrive wherever they are put, and when you bring home (or otherwise receive) a lovely bunch from Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts , that it makes no difference where you put them. Well, yes and no. Sunflowers do best where there's lots of sunlight, not surprisingly. Arrangements you put on the vanity in a bathroom should be humidity-hardy. A clutch of roses can be great as a centerpiece, as long as they aren't too fragrant, and pieces with a lot of scale look smashing as a foyer accent or on a table in a more formal area of your home.

Want to get straight As from the teacher this term? Give them flowers.
We here at Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts aren't suggesting that a gift of flowers will substitute for some good old fashioned hard work, but it can't hurt to sweeten the deal with a hearty, happy bouquet of flowers, can it? Teachers, administrators, students and staff are likely filled with excitement and not a little anxiety at the start of the school year; there's a lot to look forward to, but just as much to feel stressed about. A warm, vibrant display of flowers for the classroom or the office will go a long way to putting a relaxed smile on everyone's faces. Read More about Brighten Up The Start Of The School Year »

Chances are, you'll be doing some socializing this 4th of July, and probably in your own home.
