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!

Grandparents Day is an annual opportunity to honor the legacy and history in our families, as well as to celebrate the keepers of the stories - our grandparents! Established in 1978, the holiday was the brainchild of Marian McQuade, a wife and mother who sought to create a time set aside for these special relationships. Far from looking for a commercial event, it was McQuade's vision that the day would be observed with family gatherings and reunions. Inherent in the times together, she hoped there would be mutual love and appreciation for all of the generations which comprised a family. She also felt that it was important for the younger generations to really get to know and love the matriarchs and patriarchs of the family.
If you are looking for a special way to honor them, Grandparents Day floral arrangements from Griffin's Floral Design are a great place to begin ! Read More about Grandparents Day Floral Arrangements
