In the final few months of every year, joyous celebrations for different holidays abound. It’s a wonderful time of year because people can escape for a moment from their everyday lives and focus on the joy and spirit of the season. There’s a certain camaraderie that occurs during the holidays where we pull together as a community and enjoy in festivities and promote goodwill. Here at Griffin’s Floral Design & Wineshop, Columbus’s premier florist, we love this time of year. So much so, that we decided to collect all of our best holiday-themed blogs and put them in one place for you here. Discover inspired floral designs, gift ideas, decor tips, and more! From our family to yours, have a very merry holiday season!
For families of fallen veterans, the holidays can be a difficult time of reflection and remembrance. It’s difficult to go through the holiday season without your loved ones by your side.
When it comes to decorating for Christmas, there are few flowers more iconic than the holiday poinsettia. With its rich red leaves and star shape, this beautiful plant has become the official flower of the season.
At Griffin’s Floral Design, our professional florists look forward to helping our clients decorate their homes for the Christmas season each year with beautifully festive floral arrangements, centerpieces, and poinsettias.
Being confronted with this question by several young people I decided to search out the answer to how Christmas came about and this is what I found.
Are you tired of the same old same old Thomas Kinkade Christmas centerpiece year after year? The same centerpiece that has lost its luster due to everyone having it? Are you looking for a gift that is fresh, unique, exclusive, and limited?
When you think about plants and flowers, winter probably isn’t the first season to pop into your head. Although our winter climate in Columbus is too cold for most outdoor plants to survive, there are actually several plants that fare well indoors and bloom naturally during the coldest time of the year.
The holidays are a great time to get crafty, trying out new DIY projects or bringing back the ones you do every year. From making popcorn and cranberry garland to creating your own ornaments, there are so many ways to decorate the spaces in your home that deserve a little seasonal attention.
If you’re looking to make your home a little bit brighter this winter season, look no further than flowers. They bloom all year long, contrary to what you might have thought, with winter turning out some real stunners (roses, lilies, amaryllis… we could go on).
We’re as busy as Santa’s elves over here at Griffin’s Floral Design, and we’ve got the Holiday Gift Guide to prove it. Our guide is chock full of the season’s best blooms, most vivid greens and merriest presents.
Want to have some fun with your Secret Santa this year? We at Griffin’s Floral Design have just the thing, and no, it doesn’t come in a bottle! One of our most cherished and riotous gift swap traditions here in the U.S. is also popular across the West, with versions appearing everywhere from Latin America to Germany.
If you are involved in a Secret Santa gift exchange, you may find yourself wandering the aisles of the superstore trying to find something creative. Millions of slipper socks, coffee mugs, and gift cards are exchanged annually – but this year, Griffin’s Floral Design is here to save you from the mundane.
How early is too early to break out the Christmas holiday decorations? It is a hotly contested topic, but regardless of how you may feel about it, there is no doubt that we love to decorate for the season.
It is a very short time until Christmas. We hope you’ve completed your holiday gift shopping so you can focus on planning your holiday meals and arranging your tablescape.
Christmas shopping can be an incredibly chaotic ordeal. If you’re like us, you probably know of someone who takes all the joy out of shopping because they’re never satisfied with the gifts people choose for them.
Do you get excited around Christmastime? We sure do. We love the opportunity to use live foliage and flowers to decorate. We love coming up with show-stopping designs for our customers to use in their homes or offices.
The holiday shopping season may just be getting started, but Griffin’s Floral Design never wastes a minute when it comes to creating unique and unusual floral designs that our customers can use to decorate their homes or give to the people on their gift lists.
We’ve all been there, that exciting moment just before opening the gift you’ve been dreaming about from your spouse, significant other, or good friend. Did they remember all the ideas you gave them?
