Sweetest Day, observed each year on the third Saturday in October, was created during the Great Depression when a candy store employee, Herbert Birch Kingston, decided to spread happiness and good cheer to those less fortunate than him. Orphans, shut-ins and others who tend to be forgotten were gifted with candy and treats to make their day a little sweeter. Griffin’s Floral Design is eager to help you keep tradition alive with our wide variety of gift baskets and floral arrangements you can choose to send to the sweetest ones in your life.
This autumn, join us in celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15. This is a special time in which we pay tribute to the Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. Many national institutions commemorate this festival with programs and displays that reveal the dynamic U.S. Latino stories that shape our national experience and identity. Griffin’s Floral Design is participating in this celebration by offering beautiful floral arrangements that feature flowers originating in Latin American nations.

A fabulous fall dinner party can be a night to remember when small, eclectic touches are added to the mix. An elegant display of stunning flowers, a salad with edible flowers as a garnish and a few guests from different backgrounds can add ambiance and flavor to any gathering. The floral experts at Griffin’s Floral Design suggest pairing one of our fabulous autumn pieces with a unique recipe that will delight even the most diverse group of guests.
When you think of self-care, does the thought of doing something for yourself stress you out? Think about how much better you’ll be for those around you when you are feeling balanced and whole. The floral experts at Griffin’s Floral Design suggest giving someone you love, including yourself, a beautiful low-maintenance dish garden or plant arrangement that will bring a healthy dose of nature to your doorstep. Surrounding yourself with natural elements like plants and taking care of something more vulnerable than yourself is a wonderful way to restore balance and energy to your daily life.
Every year on Valentine’s Day, my three daughters receive a rose from their father. He started this tradition with them when they were young because he wanted their first roses to come from their father, rather than “some boy.” They treasure their rose every year because of everything it symbolizes between them and their dad. The floral artisans at Griffin’s Floral Design understand the importance of flowers and how they can contribute to a special occasion or tradition in many ways.
As Grandparents Day approaches, we have some delightful ideas for how children and grandparents can spend time together and foster their relationships. Try taking grandparents to their favorite on-stage musical or create a memory quilt with fabric from special moments in your family’s history. Ask grandparents to tell their favorite stories or memories to children and invite kids to ask questions and share their adventures with their grandparents. Griffin’s Floral Design also suggests beginning the whole day with flowers. What is your grandmother’s favorite type? Does she have a story to go with it? Delight her with a bouquet and the memories that come with it this Grandparents Day.
Gone are the days of ridding ourselves of white as soon as Labor Day arrives. This antiquated rule stems back to a time when fashion rules were very pragmatic- summertime was hot and called for light-weight, light colored clothing and decor inside homes. White was also easier to keep clean, and thus to be avoided once muddy fall and winter set in. Advancements in society have led to cooler homes, cleaner clothes and furnishings, and plenty of options for including white with heavier fall or winter textures. Why not work with white this fall as you decorate your home? Griffin’s Floral Design thinks you just might discover a whole new spin on design that you love.
Creating a bee-friendly environment in your backyard or garden is a simple process that can yield huge benefits. We love bees, not just for the balance they create in the eco-system, but also for the work they do to pollinate flowers, fruits and vegetables. On a large scale, bees contribute to a large portion of the world’s food sources. Keeping them healthy and thriving in our own gardens is a way to fight their declining numbers. Griffin’s Floral Design recommends adding plants and bright blooms with sweet fragrances like roses, lavender, mint, or sage to your outdoor space for maximum benefit to bees.
