On December 15, national program Wreaths Across America will perform its annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, along with countless other locations across the country. It's an effort that resonates for us here at Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts, since we have had the distinct honor of participating in a similar tribute. During the holidays, we're encouraged to express our gratitude and our love toward family and friends, even the ones we have lost. What better way to do that than through a memorial that acknowledges our vets? In our case, the opportunity came at LSU's Memorial Oak Grove this past November.

The holiday season is all about creating, from the stories we tell, share and read aloud, to the foods we make, the tables we set, the presents we wrap and the atmosphere we create. Our homes are made magical by cherished ornaments and decor that we look forward to putting out every year, but also by the new and fresh items we introduce--Christmas trees, mistletoe, garland, ivy and more. Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts thinks that every year can be a mix of tradition, improvisation and creativity. The things we make can stand alongside the beloved pieces we use again and again. And sometimes, we can make a fresh floral item our own. Read More about Holiday Decor And DIY That Go Beautifully Together »
