The holidays are a wonderful opportunity to spend time with friends, family and loved ones. For some, however, the memory of a lost loved one or fallen veteran can make the season difficult to go through. One way to focus on these individuals is by participating in a wreath-laying ceremony like the Wreaths Across America program at Arlington National Cemetery, in which family members honor fallen heroes by placing wreaths on their grave sites. If you don't have an existing ceremony in your community, consider starting one or simply conducting your own private ceremony for family and friends. The floral designers at Boyd's Flowers have created a gorgeous line of holiday and memorial wreaths for your choosing. Read More about Patriotic Memorial Wreaths

As we move into the fall season, it’s time to start thinking about your decorating and entertaining goals this season. Planning a beautiful evening starts with a stunning table, and the design experts at Boyd’s Flowers have some fabulous ideas for your decor this season.
Accent your floral centerpiece with pieces of fall’s natural beauty. Include pine cones, gourds of different shapes and sizes, or acorns and berries for a rustic autumn look.
Scatter candles in all shapes and sizes across your tablescape for lighting that can’t be beat. Tall, short, wide, thin… the possibilities are endless. Use a common color for a more dramatic effect.
Choose a neutral base color that allows you to highlight fall colors across your table. Soothing gray or creamy beige are a great foundation for rusted oranges or spicy plum hues. Read More about Top Tablescapes For Fall
This fall, as you think about how to decorate for fall, consider creating unique looks that bring the rustic beauty of fall into your home. Include some or all of the following elements to design a fabulous fall look:
Bring harvest textures into focus when you include unusual elements like fall foliage, acorns and pine cones for a decorative nod at all things autumn.
Let harvest hues take center stage with rich burgundy, deep forest green, mustard yellow and rusted orange accented by creamy off-whites for a festive, colorful autumn look.
Play with space and fragrance. Use staircases or porch steps as well as the height of dining rooms and mantles to include fall decor in places other than eye level. Add cinnamon sticks, cloves, and other fall spices with candles and decorating accents that evoke the aroma of fall.

For October 16, Boyd's Flowers has some workplace advice: give your boss a gift.
Officially designated National Bosses Day in the 1960s, this occasion was dreamed up by a plucky employee who wanted to honor her boss, who also happened to be her dad. Since then, we've reserved this date to acknowledge the often undersung efforts of our mentors, leaders and guides. Naturally, we think a plant gift is in order. And possibly a workplace party.
