Sometimes in life, there are opportunities to be nice "just because". When new neighbors move in close by, you are given such an opportunity. You can be sure that they are tired and perhaps a bit apprehensive. Going over to say hello, lend a helping hand, and even offer a home-cooked meal is a great way to get this friendship off on the right foot! At Boyd's Flowers, we understand that flowers and plants can make a house feel more like a home, and we have everything you need to make a great first impression.

On September 10, we have the opportunity to celebrate some of the most special people in our lives. It is a day set aside to both celebrate our family's history and legacy, and to recognize Grandma and Grandpa in a special way. The floral experts at Boyd's Flowers are here to help you to create arrangements for Grandparents Day that are sure to convey your love and appreciation.
Did You Know? While in some cultures multi-cultural living is the norm, in the United States the arrangement has not been as common. Still, nearly 37% of households are currently headed by grandparents, a fact which seems to indicate that families are returning to a more traditional way of life.

September birthdays are a celebration in blue! The birth stone of the month is the brilliant sapphire - and although the gem occurs in many colors, it is the iconic blue which inspires us for birthday bouquets and gifts. True blue flowers can include delphinium, larkspur, forget-me-nots, blue iris and hydrangea - as well as blue asters, which are especially appropriate as asters are the birth flower of September. The designers at Boy's Flowers have crafted beautiful arrangements both with blue accents, as well as with asters , and whichever you choose, you'll know your September birthdays will be amazing.

Just Because Day was created in 2005 to celebrate the unexpected, the spontaneous, and the urge to act on impulse.

The designers at Boyd's Flowers are honoring this day with a list of fun ways to celebrate... just because we can. Read More about Sending Floral Bouquets Just Because »
