A Moment for Mums

Can we talk mums for a minute? November's ubiquitous golden blooms start appearing in October, mostly because we're all so excited to herald the arrival of Fall (unless it's just us at Julia's Florist, but we don't think so). We've been stacking container mums on our front steps, nestling them around our front door or planting them straight into our flower beds come Fall for what seems forever. Why are they so popular? For starters, they are frost-tolerant. Secondly, they love shorter days. Treated properly, they'll last through Thanksgiving. And oh yeah, they're really pretty. Read More about A Moment for Mums »

Sending Green Flowers on St. Patrick’s Day

It's Saint Patrick's Day, and time to celebrate all things green! There are over 36 million people who can claim Irish descent, but whether you are Irish or not, everyone is allowed to claim the nationality for one day. On March 17th, it is a tradition for everyone to participate in the "wearing o' the green"  - in fact, it is even acceptable to give a playful pinch to those who refuse to wear the iconic shade on this festive holiday. While some people go with a simple green outfit, others go all out and try to outdo each other at parties and festivities. If you would like to send a little green spirit to your Celtic friends and family on St. Patrick's Day, you'll need to look no further than Julia's Florist in Wilmington. Our floral designers are ready to create whimsical arrangements that will commemorate the Emerald Isle beautifully.  Read More about Sending Green Flowers on St. Patrick’s Day »

International Women’s Day Celebrations and Activities

International Women's Day has been gaining global acceptance since its origination in the early 1900's, when a group of women in the Soviet Bloc nations organized to demand basic human rights. The movement picked up momentum in the 1970's when the United Nations legitimized the initiative. This year, online forums and virtual gatherings will increase the reach of the participants. The original purpose of the day was to battle social injustice, and to strive for equality and rights for women. In many nations of the world, those are still the main needs. Here in the West, the day has become a time to honor the achievements of women in all levels of culture. This March 8th, we will once again give esteem to the visionaries that paved the way, as well as the women currently taking on these challenges.  Read More about International Women’s Day Celebrations and Activities »

Floral Design Celebrated as Art

Carl Rittner founded his Boston School of Floral Design nearly seven decades ago, with a vision of inspiring students to see floral design as a legitimate art form. Recognized as a pioneer in the industry and a true visionary, Rittner was adored by his students, who were eager to find a meaningful way to honor him.  Floral Design Day was instituted on February 28th, 1995, designated an official Boston celebration. However, the idea has since spread across the country. The day is seen as an opportunity for the industry to recognize their own professionals, who use their artistic talent and creative imagination to make the world a little more beautiful every day.  Read More about Floral Design Celebrated as Art »

At Julia's Florist, we love weddings no matter the month, If you are one of the thousands celebrating Wilmington engagements and weddings this month, we'd be honored to work with you!  Read More about Celebrating Wilmington Engagements and Weddings »
