Once upon a time, you married your best friend, your favorite person, your soulmate. As we celebrate more weddings and wedding anniversaries here in the month of June than any other time of year, it’s wonderful to remember all the reasons you still love being together.

Julia’s Florist has everything you need to show her how special your marriage is.
In honor of Father’s Day, which falls on June 17th this year, we found some interesting history. There are actually two versions of how Father’s Day began in the United States. One includes a Spokane, Washington woman who wanted to honor her own father, a civil war veteran who raised six children on his own after his wife passed away. The other version tells a story of a mining explosion in West Virginia that led to a small church honoring the thousand children left fatherless from the tragedy. In both stories, however, nothing was made official or national until 1966, when Lyndon B. Johnson declared the third Sunday in June to be the official day to celebrate Father’s Day. Richard Nixon followed up in 1972 by declaring the day a National Holiday. At Julia’s Florist, we are happy to honor fathers throughout history and everyday with our wide selection of gifts and plants.

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.
