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.
This month is Hispanic Heritage Month, a time when we pay tribute to the many generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced our nation and society. We join with the many Latin American countries that celebrate their Independence Days between September 15 and October 15, like Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, Chile and Belize, and honor their contributions to our culture. Julia’s Florist is commemorating this significant celebration by creating designs that feature flowers that hail from Hispanic America.

While fall is in the air, weekend brunch can take on a seasonal change of its own to accommodate the changing seasons. Bring friends together for any occasion and serve something truly delightful as a break from routine. Try including edible flowers in your drinks for a surprisingly refreshing boost to an already fantastic morning. The floral experts at Julia’s Florist even have some suggestions of floral arrangements that will bring together your delightful concoction and the autumn colors and fragrances we love.
September is self-care month, a time to focus on what we’re doing to take care of ourselves and what we could be doing better. Foster wellness in your own life by surrounding yourself with a healthy environment in your home or office. Giving healthy gifts to co-workers is another means of creating balance while helping them care for themselves, as well. A gift of thriving, low-maintenance plants is a lovely way to encourage a positive attitude while providing a stress-lowering atmosphere to your recipient. Julia’s Florist of Wilmington, NC, suggests you share plant life with people around you in a creative way.
Sometimes old-fashioned romance can be hard to come by. We seek it out in old black-and-white photographs or films from a different era, but often we come up short in this fast-paced world. If you know someone who craves the romance of times gone by, try sending them flowers in an arrangement that will take them back to days when romance was in bloom, when ladies waited for men to approach with a determined politeness and rules were in place for a modest courtship. The floral designers at Julia’s Florist have created some gorgeous designs from the romantic era that will sing of art and music like none other.
Getting together with family is always a special occasion. Watching various generations interact and understand one another is priceless. This year, let Grandparents Day, celebrated on the second Sunday in September, provide you with an opportunity to gather family and hear stories, memories and family jokes from every generation present. Giving kids the gift of knowledge and wisdom is one of the best gifts in the world, surpassed only by the gift to grandparents of seeing their grandchildren grow and change. Surround your family with flowers from Julia’s Florist that reflect who you are as a whole, or honor your grandparents with special blooms that are significant just to them.
Decorating with white can be as simple as disregarding antiquated rules about white and Labor Day and embracing the idea that you have a smart sense of style that can see unique beauty in a variety of looks. Put your inhibitions aside and play with fresh ideas, like including an all-white floral arrangement as your decorate for fall. The floral experts at Julia’s Florist recommend bouquets that are rich in texture and style while maintaining a single color for maximum effect. Accent an all-white dining table or place in a living room or study that has rich dark colors for a fresh contrast.
If you’re looking for a simple way to promote a healthy environment in your own backyard, try including bee-friendly blooms and plants to encourage a balanced eco-system and strong pollination. Bees are important contributors to our food sources due to their pollination work. Create a great space for them with bright flowers and simple petal patterns, like daisies and sunflowers. Provide some shade and water to keep bees cool and hydrated as they work. Use organic pesticides (or go all natural) to invite bees into your garden and help them thrive. The floral experts at Julia’s Florist have some great designs that make wonderful bee-friendly porch or patio pieces.
