Flowers for Housewarming Gifts

Housewarming GiftsThere are two occasions when housewarming gifts are appropriate – when a friend or loved one moves into a new home, and when someone new moves into your neighborhood. Whatever the situation, housewarming gifts serve to make a new home feel more homey and welcoming. With that goal in mind, we can’t think of a better way to congratulate the new resident than with a gift of fresh flowers or plants, which instantly make any home feel friendlier and more comfortable.

Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts has been decorating Baton Rouge homes for decades, and have a wide selection of flowers guaranteed to elevate the beauty of any decor.  Continue reading

It is a wonderful feeling to be recognized for what you do. And this May we are given the opportunity to celebrate two very important careers. National Teachers Week is May 7-13, and National Nurses Week is May 6-12. Both teachers and nurses give of themselves selflessly and are known for their caring heart. Is there a special teacher or nurse in your life? Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts has the floral designs and gifts that will let them know just how much you appreciate them.

Did You Know? Although the observance is celebrated over a week’s time, National Nurse’s Day is celebrated on May 6, and the week celebration which follows ends on May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birthday.  honoring teachers

Most of us can think of a teacher that has influenced our lives and made a difference. Teachers inspire us to work harder and believe in ourselves. They invest time and energy into our progress and truly care about our success. Whether you are in school now, or still fondly remember a teacher from years ago, a floral design is a beautiful way to thank them for their heart.

Get Social: Tuesday, May 9 is National Teacher’s Day. Everyone is encouraged to post photos and stories of their favorite teacher to social media, along with the hashtag #ThankATeacher.
honoring teachersNurses are with us through some of the most dramatic times of our lives. Aside from having an exceptionally demanding job, they also share their emotions and heart. They hold our hands when we are worried about a loved one, and rejoice with us when we welcome a new baby. It takes a special person to be a nurse, and during National Nurses Week, you have an awesome opportunity to tell them how much of a difference they make.

Billy Heroman’s Flowers has a beautiful collection of floral arrangements designed to be perfect for every occasion. To all of our Baton Rouge teachers and nurses we say thank you, and we appreciate all you do.

Honoring Those Who Rescue Puppies

Annually, there are nearly 4 million dogs and puppies entering shelters across the country, and latest statistics indicate that half of them will not make it out alive. National Puppy Day was first observed in 2007 when animal advocates established the day to shine a light on the problems of overpopulation, overbreeding, and over-crowded shelters. They still hope to educate the public on these issues while encouraging all prospective pet owners to adopt a rescue animal – and quite literally save a life

Mardi Gras Celebrations and Decor

Mardi Gras

There are few celebrations more synonymous with this part of the world than Mardi Gras. The origin of the festive holiday can be traced to the France in the 17th century, with the traditional revelry of “Boeuf Gras,” or fatted calf. In March of 1699 – on the eve of the holiday – French-Canadian explorer Jean Baptiste Le Moyne Sieur de Bienville arrived at a port just south of New Orleans and named it “Pointe du Mardi Gras”. In 1702, Bienville established Fort Louis de la Mobile (current day Mobile) and just a year later, Americas first Mardi Gras was celebrated in this small settlement. In 1718, Bienville founded New Orleans. Continue reading

Flower Power

 

The Emotional Impact of Flowers

Do flowers improve your mood? It may seem that the answer is obvious– of course they do! Now it has been scientifically proven that flowers have a positive effect on your mood. Currently, the majority of people are trying to find more natural ways to improve their mental and physical health. Having this in mind, Psychologists at Rutgers University in New Jersey did a 10 month study on the behavioral and emotional responses of participants who received flowers. They found that not only does receiving flowers improve your mood immediately, but in the long term as well. In all age groups, the participants were not only excited and grateful, but also reported feeling less depressed and stressed.

Another important result of this study is that flowers create close connections between people, making them more likely to contact their family and friends. Not only do flowers make you feel good about yourself and your relationships, but they also make other people feel welcome in a space where they are present. Flowers in a room bring happiness to others and create an atmosphere for sharing. This proves that something as simple as flowers can improve your emotional well being, as well as for the people around you. As the saying goes, “Money can’t buy you happiness,” but as this study proves, the natural beauty found in nature can.
