The first week of May is a significant one concerning national weeks of appreciation that honor various professions. Nurses and teachers are critical professionals in every community, and for all the work they do, their steadfast dedication, and their unwavering determination, we rarely thank them, let alone honor them. So it is very fitting that on May 8th, the date on which National Teacher Day falls, we salute teachers. And there is no more appropriate day on which to honor nurses than on the date of Florence Nightingale’s birth, May 12th. Julia’s Florist has a vast collection of beautiful flower arrangements from which you can choose as we honor nurses and teachers.
April 22 is designated as Earth Day. It has been a yearly observance since 1970. The 2018 theme revolves around ending plastic pollution. We regularly hear news stories about massive amounts of plastic and garbage that are creating islands in the ocean – especially the Pacific Ocean. We also hear reports about things that wash ashore. In honor of this year’s theme, the experienced floral design team here at Julia’s Florist are creating some flower arrangements that use eco-friendly objects for containers.
April 25, 2018, is this year’s observance of Administrative Professionals Day. It’s part of a week-long celebration that used to be known as National Secretaries Week. A woman by the name of Mary Barrett came up with the idea in her capacity as one of the leaders of the National Secretaries Association, an organization that was founded during World War II as a way to offer secretaries and receptionists, the support they deserved. The entire Julia’s Florist team is thrilled to participate in this event that honors the unsung heroes of most businesses.
It finally feels like spring in our neck of the woods, and with any luck and a lot of crossed fingers, we’ll keep hoping that Mother Nature doesn’t decide to unleash her fury on the Wilmington area with some disastrous weather scenario. When we’re outdoors, we see glimpses of spring peeking through the surface of the ground or starting to emerge from the branches of trees and shrubs. We want to encourage you to take advantage of this time of the year — a type of rebirth and renewal, to refresh your home and spirit, and the Julia’s Florist team is eager to help you do that.
Spring may be here, but the outdoor signs that offer proof positive that there’s truth to what meteorologists tell us are few and far between. Hopefully, the fact that Easter’s less than two weeks away means that we’ll see evidence of spring on the ground in the not too distant future. In the meantime, Julia’s Florist has a massive selection of blooming plants and cut flowers that will transform every space you spend time in – whether you work or live there.
Daylight Savings is here, and the calendar tells us that spring is nearly here, but to anyone who steps outside or keeps an eye on the 10-day weather forecast, there is nothing to give us an inkling that the meteorological date on which spring arrives will offer proof that winter is a thing of the past. For the impatient people in our community (and that includes our creative team), Julia’s Florist comes to the rescue to fill your home, workspace, or business with fresh cut fragrant flowers.
The calendar tells us that March 20 is the first day of spring. But when you live along the Atlantic coast, you learn to expect the unexpected. And there’s still a chill in the air. The Julia’s Florist team believes that the best way to chase away the winter chill, and the blahs that accompany it, is by filling your house, your workplace, your office, or work cubicle with plants that bloom.
Our lives are so busy that we often forget to take care of ourselves. We’re used to making work and family our number one priorities. When was the last time you did something special for yourself for no reason whatsoever? The Julia’s Florist team believes that flowers can be one of the most rewarding gifts that anyone can give to themselves.
Spring is the season of new beginnings, a time of hope, rebirth and renewal. It’s the perfect time of year to give a floral gift, and there are numerous beautiful springtime options for every occasion. Julia’s Florist brings you an abundance of inspiring arrangements and bouquets that fit the season and enhance your springtime celebrations.
