When the holidays approach, participating in traditional festivities can be difficult for families of veterans who have died in service to our country. One way to honor the memory of a loved one and bring a sense of meaning and purpose to their absence during the holidays is with a wreath-laying ceremony. Begun at Arlington National Cemetery, Wreaths Across America is a ceremony in which Christmas wreaths and flowers are placed on the grave sites of fallen veterans all across the country and abroad. Bring a beautiful bouquet of holiday flowers or a gorgeous Christmas wreath to your loved one’s resting place to honor their memory and commemorate their sacrifice. The floral artisans at Julia’s Florist have designed some beautiful holiday flowers that will look beautiful as a patriotic tribute.

Beautiful table linens and decor can complement your fall venue while a gorgeous centerpiece from our collection at Kitty’s Flowers will tie the look together.
Getting ready for holiday entertaining is a pleasant experience when you have creative ideas for your home and table. This season, the design geniuses at Julia’s Florist have plenty of tips to share with you to help you create a fabulous tablescape that you and your guests will enjoy all season long.
- A great way to dress up your formal table for fall is to simply add several mini pumpkins to your traditional design. For a more elegant presentation, use blanched, or white, pumpkins.
- Utilize the natural beauty of the season by including stalks of wheat, dried maize, or hypericum berries along your table runner as accents to your floral centerpiece- or use these to design your own creative centerpiece!
- Play with metallics. Use cutlery and candlesticks in different finishes for a mismatched but polished look.

This month we celebrate bosses everywhere on October 16th with Bosses Day. This National observance began in 1928 when Patricia Bays Haroski, a secretary for State Farm Insurance in Cleveland, realized her boss’s hard work often went unnoticed. Since her boss also happened to be her father, she chose his birthday as the date for acknowledging all bosses everywhere for their tireless efforts to support and motivate their employees. The official date was enacted by Ohio’s governor four years later. At Julia’s Florist, we have created a wide variety of plants, flowers and gift baskets that will make excellent gifts for your boss this year.
