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. It highlights the kind of work we do all year long but no more so than during the winter holidays, where there's a real call for rich, textural decor as well as bright colors and bold shapes. Our customers want to evoke a snowy walk in the woods as well as a cozy night by the fire through their floral decor.
We're here to offer both sentiments through our floral work and our gifts. Take a peek. Read More about Perfect Picks From Our Holiday Guide
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. Though it may be called different names, the premise is always the same: an anonymous giver offers the recipient a present. Which, if you think about it, is basically how Santa Claus operates.

While you're decking those workplace halls, don't forget to add a dash of fresh flowers, too.
We here at Griffin's Floral Design may be biased, but we think there's nothing quite like a display of seasonal florals to truly capture the holiday spirit. And the workplace is a wonderful place to take advantage of the festive designs available now, since so many people will get to enjoy them. Flowers and plants, after all, are meant to be seen. When they're displayed in businesses or workplaces, the joy they offer is maximized. Read More about Magical Floral Gifts for the Office
It's not hard for a table to look good on Thanksgiving. A beautiful tablecloth, fine china, polished silverware - and that's to say nothing of the feast itself. Even if your table is less formal, there's nothing quite like the set-up for a glorious meal with family and friends. You may have a fire going in the background or the TV parked on football; either way, you're likely to be looking at a pretty table.
Here at Griffin's Floral Design, we don't want you to overlook one of the prettiest items on it: the centerpiece. Read More about Picture-Perfect Thanksgiving Centerpieces
Thanking your host with flowers is a classic gesture. In fact, across the globe, there are customs governing the gifting of flowers, such is their popularity as an expression of gratitude. We here at Griffin's Floral Design know that with Thanksgiving right around the corner, many of us are planning to accept someone else's invitation to dinner. The last thing we want you to do is show up empty-handed, and we don't mean bearing a green bean casserole. We mean a floral gift. Read More about Fall Flowers for the Holiday Host
Veterans Day, celebrated every November 11, has been around since 1919, when it was conceived as "Armistice Day" in honor of the end of WWI the year before. Eventually it became the Veterans Day we know now, and yet not any less a momentous occasion. On this day (or very near close to it), our Columbus community gathers together to honor those who served in the U.S. military through parades, observances and parties. We fete our heroes in our homes or reach out to them if they are at a distance. We here at Griffin's Floral Design make the same efforts, joining you in celebration of our vets.
But we also believe that the gesture of sending flowers in tribute is another way of honoring our heroes, and we've got a variety of floral styles for Veterans Day to choose from. Read More about Floral Styles for Veterans Day
It's the giving season, and nothing expresses our gratitude quite like a heaping bushel of flowers, or so we think here at Griffin's Floral Design. Tidy bouquets and glancing bud vases are great, but when we really want to make an impact - especially in Fall, where abundance is a running theme - it's go big or go home. And there's no flower that lends itself better to being brought in bunches (okay, maybe roses) than mums. Fall's signature flower is the perfect way to say Thanks, Gracias, Merci . . . you get the picture. Read More about The Gift of Mums

Some say it was 1916, others that it was 1923 - but regardless of the date of the original Sweetest Day, we all agree on how it began. A homegrown Ohio holiday, the first observance of this day was in Cleveland approximately 100 years ago.
History tells of a group of candy company executives who banded together to give small gifts of candy and chocolate to orphans, shut-ins, and others who were down on their luck. Down through the years, the holiday has come to represent acts of kindness to anyone who could use a smile. And although the inaugural celebrations had nothing to do with romance. many people do think of Sweetest Day as a "little Valentine's Day". Regardless of who you want to surprise on October 21, Griffin's Floral Designs has the bouquets, gifts, and chocolate you will need to make them smile!
