One of the best ways to make someone feel better when they’re under the weather is to send flowers. The brighter the better, as color is often in short supply if a person is bedridden or in the hospital. A bountiful arrangement is the perfect way to bring nature in and to add a lighter feeling to a space.
At Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts, we’re well aware of the many positive benefits flowers can have on someone who isn’t feeling well. They range from improving outlook to lower blood pressure overall. Studies bear out that flowers have more of an impact on a person’s well being than we even knew.
You may not think flowers and winter make the best pairing; after all, much of our usual green is gone outside and it’s snowing elsewhere in the country. But winter’s blooms are here in abundance, and in a variety of colors.
At Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts, we’ve certainly got them in all colors, but what we’re really loving around this time of year is white. Maybe we’re jealous of the Northerners with their blankets of freshly-fallen snow, maybe we want some florals that speak to serenity and peace. Maybe both. Either way, winter’s snowy palette is a true showstopper.
Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts may be steeped in winter’s seasonal arrangements, but we’re looking ahead to the future, too. And one of the best ways to do that is to take stock of International Floral Distributors annual floral design trend report.
Of the four styles identified, we’re in love with Positively Posh, an approach to floral work that celebrates a traditional romantic aesthetic with a modern twist.
Chances are, you’re attending a dinner party sometime this holiday season. And while it may not be on the level of Thanksgiving, it’s still a gathering in which your host or hostess will be going to some effort to make a nice meal and put out all the decor. In that case, it’s time to think about the thank-you gift you’ll offer in return.
Hostess gifts have been around forever, and while there’s some debate about what’s appropriate to give, one thing is for sure, at least to Billy Heromans Flowers & Gifts: Fall florals are never wrong.
Feeling moved to send some flowers on Veterans Day? You’re not alone. The desire to honor those who served in the military and to commemorate their extraordinary sacrifices is a popular sentiment come November 11. Whether you’re attending the USS KIDD ceremony or having a ritual in the home, there are some Veterans Day gifts that inspire, and they’re called flowers.
At Billy Heromans Flowers & Gifts, we’re aware that there is no official floral item that’s traditionally exchanged on the 11th. Red poppies are reserved for more somber occasions, for instance, while blue forget-me-nots seem more intended for a sweetie you miss who is serving overseas. But while Veterans Day may not get its own flower, there are several candidates in all the right colors you can proudly deliver to your favorite patriot regardless.
There are flowers you want to admire from a distance, or even lean in to for a minute to smell their lovely fragrance. And then there are flowers that you want to gather up in your arms and crowd your doorstep with. Mums are in that category.
We’re loving mums at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts, and not just because they’re the season’s standout bloom. We’re filling Fall with mums because they’re never out of season, even if we have to wait most of the year to see them. Though these days they come in a variety of colors – even wine and harvest hues – we’re still partial to the traditionally bright blooms. Even on the darkest and deepest of Fall evenings, a batch of spirited mums reminds us that the sun will come out again.
The fall season is full of unique sights, sounds, smells and tastes. This is a great time of year to add creativity and warmth with your home decor, and to look for ways to celebrate the season through flowers. The floral experts at Billy Heroman’s Flowers in Baton Rouge love all of the colors and textures of this time of the year, and we look forward to helping you to transform your ambiance.

“A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.” ~Marian Garretty
