Okay, so Galentine's Day is a relatively new phenomenon, and maybe one you haven't even heard of. Inspired by a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation, it's a day reserved entirely for celebrating female friendships, and it falls the day before Valentine's Day, on February 13th. Whether you take a long lunch with your lady co-workers or make it a true girls night out, if you're celebrating your besties on Galentine's Day in some form, you're doing it right.
We here at Boyd's Flowers love this concept, especially seeing as we have so many feminine designs that would make the perfect gift to send your girls. Read More about Don’t Forget Your Friends On Galentine’s Day »

Among the many reasons to give someone who is under the weather flowers, there's the fact that they actually improve recovery. Studies point to the incredible benefits patients in hospitals enjoy if they have flowers or potted plants in their room, including higher levels of oxygenation, less use of pain medication and lower blood pressure overall. Compared to their counterparts, these patients enjoy all of the effects flowers can have on our well being.
We here at Boyd's Flowers believe in the power of flowers to both make people happy and help them stay healthy. Read More about Deliver Some Health Through Flowers »

Given the many benefits of flowers, picking up an arrangement or two for your desk at work and the table at home is just good sense, or so we say here at Boyd's Flowers.

What's the most important thing you'll have on your Thanksgiving table?
If you said, "turkey," okay, we can't disagree. But we at Boyd's Flowers think there's also something else - something that has nothing to do with food - that's equally worthy of your attention. And that item is your table's centerpiece.
Deciding what flowers will grace your holiday table is a fun dilemma that gives you a break from meal planning and prep. Your centerpiece flowers help establish the mood of your Thanksgiving, whether that's formal and fancy or a down home potluck. Even if you've styled your dinner as a buffet, you'll want to bring some life to the tables through flowers and other decor. We're here to help with that.
