When you want to honor and pay tribute to your heroic loved one, consider participating in Wreaths Across America, a wreath-laying ceremony started at Arlington National Cemetery and now being held all across the country. Place a beautiful Christmas wreath or floral arrangement on the grave site of your loved one to help us all remember our veterans at Christmas. The floral professionals at Griffin's Floral Designs have created a gorgeous collection of holiday bouquets for you to choose from. Read More about Remember Our Veterans at Christmas »

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. Whether you have been put in charge of decorating your office or are simply looking to create a festive environment at home - a poinsettia makes a perfect choice.
Why is it called the Christmas Flower? Native to Mexico, the local legend of the poinsettia associates it with this special holiday. The story relates that a peasant girl wanted to present an offering to the newborn Jesus, but had no money.

As her gift of pure love was placed at His feet, the weeds transformed into the beautiful poinsettia plant. Read More about Christmas Flowers, Gifts & Decor »
