Never Too Late Or Early For White Roses

Is it ever the wrong time for white flowers? We here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts say no. During the holidays: a classically elegant palette. During the spring: a beautiful transition from the rich colors of winter to the pastel hues of the warmer season. During the summer: the perfect refresher after a long, hot, humid few months. But what about that Labor Day rule for white? You can toss it. That was a piece of etiquette intended for New York socialites in the 1800s. If that doesn’t describe you, feel free to enjoy white in your fashion choices and in your home all year long, starting with flowers.

Pick Pantone’s Color Of The Year For Your Flowers

We here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers are fans of purple – just check out our logo – so we were thrilled with Pantone’s pick for 2018 Color Of The Year, Ultra Violet. This may seem like a tough color to introduce into your space, but trust us, it isn’t. Majestic, cosmic, mysterious, this shade is basically a jewel-tone and looks gorgeous added to the home right around winter time. But if you’re not ready to commit to wall paint or a new couch (who is?), then try this color out first in flower form.

Fall Florals for Hosts

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.

Veterans Day Gifts That Inspire

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.

Filling Fall with Mums

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.

Sweetest Day Gifts

Sweetest Day

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.  Continue reading
