What would Easter be without its baskets? It's like suggesting we spend the Sunday without hunting for eggs or noshing on bunny-shaped chocolate. The basket is tradition, and it came to us from an even more ancient farming tradition, when seedlings were brought to church in baskets to be blessed. Eventually, what would become the Easter meal in modern times was also brought in a basket to be blessed. Baskets carry with them a sacred meaning, sure, but they're also important symbols of comfort and plenty, which is why we here at Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts love to design with them.

Playing Secret Santa this year? We at Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts have the goods. If it's your first time participating in this group gift swap, allow us to introduce you to the concept. Secret Santa's origins can be traced to Scandinavia, where legend holds that a very Santa Claus-like figure used to knock on his neighbor's doors and when they answered, vanish without a trace. All that was left behind was a present and maybe a few lines of verse hinting at the giver's identity.
Today in the U.S. there are countless variations on the theme - even online versions. But no matter which iteration you're playing, we can help with the gift part. Read More about Make It A Sweet Secret Santa Gift
For many of us, the holiday season only officially begins when we've decorated the house and set up the tree. We transform our homes with garlands and lights, introducing some seasonal spirit to our daily lives. For most of us, it's no different at the workplace. Out come the decorations, cheering up our desks and common areas and announcing to customers, clients and coworkers that the holidays are here.
At Billy Heroman's Flowers, we love to combine our cherished decor with fresh new items unique to that year. And for us, there's no better way to do that than with winter's vibrant poinsettias. Read More about Festive Poinsettias for the Office
With so much to be thankful for this season, we at Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts are offering you another: flowers.
Floral centerpieces haven't been around as long as the cornucopia, but they have been with us for centuries. The idea of trimming your table - especially its heart - with a gathering of bountiful blooms makes total sense; flowers offer texture, fragrance and color. They bring life to a space, and they are lovely to look at. On Thanksgiving, we take great care to create a meal that does all of those things, and to gather friends and family to partake in it.

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.

Just over 100 years ago in Cleveland, a group of confection companies got together to give sweets and candies to orphans, shut-ins and the homeless. In all, they handed out 26,000 boxes of candy and named the event "Sweetest Day". When they suggested making it an annual event, they were met with widespread cynicism, as the public thought that perhaps they were thinking more of creating a holiday that helped their pocketbooks, not the needy. Still, the observance has survived down through the years, primarily in the Northeast and Midwest, as a day to reach out to those who are in need of some help and encouragement.
Who in your life could use a pick-me-up? Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts has a wide selection of options sure to make them smile. Sweetest Day is October 21. Read More about Sweetest Day Gifts
There may be no one more special people in our lives than grandparents - and given that fact, having a day to recognize them seems like a great idea to us! Grandparents Day is observed on September 10, and was originally the vision of a woman named Marian McQuade. A mother and grandmother herself, Marian did not set out to create a commercial holiday, rather to set aside a time that the elder generation could impart stories, wisdom and history to their kids and grandkids. It is a day to spend time together and enjoy being a family.
Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts loves the idea of bringing people together and celebrating family. When you are looking for the perfect Grandparents Day floral designs to express your love and gratitude, we've got everything you need. Read More about Grandparents Day Floral Designs
