Galentine’s Day Flowers For Your Gals

Are you in the know about Galentine’s Day? If not, get on board. Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts is here to tell you that this special day reserved for honoring our female friendships and the women nearest and dearest to us is celebrated on February 13th, the day before that other big day devoted to love.

Galentine’s sprung to life in 2010, after an episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation introduced it to the mainstream. It resonated with the audience to such an extent that it was adopted into practice, and now many women choose to make the night before Valentine’s Day a real ladies night out, celebrating the love female friends have for each other.

Flowers Make The Best Get Well

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.

Beautiful Winter Blooms

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.

Make It A Sweet Secret Santa Gift

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.

Festive Poinsettias for the Office

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.

Captivating Centerpieces for Thanksgiving

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.
