They have a role in the family that is irreplaceable. Part teacher, part best friend, part cheerleader and always there for their loved ones, we honor them on September 11 with their very own holiday. After all, what would we do without our grandparents? At Billy Heroman’s Flowers, we want to help you to thank these most amazing people with the perfect gift.

Grandma is beautiful, and her love is rare. That’s why the Exquisite Beauty bouquet is a great offering on Grandparent’s Day. This luxurious design showcases lilies, roses, hydrangea and cymbidium orchids, and is lavish in its presentation. For the person who always goes above and beyond, this arrangement tells her how much she is valued.

Decorate their home with this trio of delicate orchid plants. Graceful, elegant and always breath-taking, your grandparents will absolutely love this striking display. grandparents

Grandpa took you on adventures, long walks, and explorations – nothing was every boring or ordinary when you were with him. We love the idea of giving your grandfather this unique nature terrarium for his den or office – but it is only available in the local Baton Rouge and Port Allen areas, so stop by the shop and hand-deliver it to him. He’ll love seeing and spending time with you – and that you cherish the relationship you have with him.

Grandparent’s Day is September 11, and we know you can’t wait to honor these very special family members. Call Billy Heroman’s Flowers and tell us why your grandparents are the best on earth – and we’ll make sure we deliver the love they deserve.

Celebrating Mother’s Day 2016

mother's dayMay the 8th is a day when children everywhere – young and old – get the chance to show their moms the appreciation that she so deserves! Over 100 years ago, Anna Jarvis championed efforts to bring recognition as to the importance of mothers; she was acting, primarily, to honor her own mother’s dream of such a day. Although there are many precursors to the holiday, it wasn’t until 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson made it official. Mother’s Day is celebrated annually on the 2nd Sunday of May; and the holiday has been mirrored around the world, observed on the same day in Australia, England, India, Canada, and Mexico.

mother's dayOf course, there are many ways we can tell mom we love her – Americans will spend billions on cards, restaurants, jewelry and spa days, not to mention flowers. From the simplicity of a few pink roses to the extravagance of a cut flower bouquet, flowers carry with them inherent meaning that tells the story of your mom’s personality. Orchids represent grace and beauty; mums signify loyalty and pink roses express deep gratitude. What flowers would you like to include in your arrangement?

mother's dayHere’s a tip we love – if you research the meaning of flowers and find some that perfectly represent how you feel about your mom, give us a call. We’ll work with you to design a unique floral bouquet created just for your mother. When you deliver the flowers, include a handwritten card that explains why you selected each flower for her. The note will last long after the holiday is over, and is sure to become something she cherishes.

mother's dayWhoever has filled the role of mother in your life – whether your mom, grandmom, an aunt or a special friend – make sure this day doesn’t pass by without giving them the gratitude they deserve – send gorgeous cut flowers from Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts.

Billy Heroman’s Flowers- Administrative Professionals Day

administrative professionalsThere are many people in our lives that we appreciate and couldn’t do without. Sometimes, unfortunately, giving them the gratitude that they deserve can fall to the wayside in the busyness of our day. Every April there is an entire week set aside to encourage the administrative professionals in our organizations that are instrumental to our success. This year, National Administrative Professionals Day falls on Wednesday, April 27, and is the perfect time to show those coworkers how important they are to the company.

administrative professionalsCreated approximately 75 years ago during World War II, the observance was originally named National Secretaries Day. The reason for its genesis was to bring about appreciation of those already working in the field, as well as to encourage others to choose this career path. As time went on, the name was eventually changed to Administrative Professionals Day, to reflect the evolution of the modern workplace. A recent social media poll found that an overwhelming number of employees considered administrative personnel to be more influential to day-to-day operations than even those at the top – they have contact with everyone from customers to vendors, to executives; and know more about how the business works than anyone else.

administrative professionalsWith all their importance in keeping the business running smoothly every day, these indispensable employees deserve some recognition! A delivery of fresh flowers, green plants or gourmet snacks and treats is a great way to show that their efforts do not go unnoticed or unappreciated and that you consider them valuable assets to the team. If you haven’t thanked your team lately, April 27th is a very good time to do so.

administrative professionalsBilly Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts has a passion for helping you to celebrate the important people in your life. Give us a call, and let’s work together to make this National Administrative Professional’s Day one your employees will never forget.

Billy Heroman’s – Easter Flowers

easter flowersAt Billy Heroman’s, we appreciate the role that flowers play in our history and our legends. The white Easter lily is one of those flowers that holds a truly special meaning this time of year, making it the most popular flower sold for Easter Sunday. Legend relates that the Easter lily first sprouted on Resurrection Sunday, in the place where the sweat of Jesus had soaked into the ground during his passion. White lilies are also symbolic of purity and divinity, giving them an even deeper meaning in many Christian traditions. Because of these associations, floral arrangements showcasing the white lily are prolific in church services and places of worship throughout this season.

This time of year also sees bright and colorful floral designs that celebrate the new hope and joy of springtime. Arrangements utilizing tulips, daises, irises, snapdragons and daffodils allow you to bring the sentiment and emotions of the new season into any space; or to show someone how much you truly care for them. Spring blooms are not only beautiful, but they are also meaningful – each carrying thoughts of love, renewal and serenity. In the Easter season, color palettes of pastel pinks, blues and yellows, accented by greenery are common – resulting in floral arrangements that look like an Easter basket brought to life.
