Give Your Boss A Boss Gift

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. Read More about Give Your Boss A Boss Gift »

A Divine Dish Garden For Dad

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. Read More about A Divine Dish Garden For Dad »

In early December 2017 when the color gurus at Pantone® announced that Ultra Violet would be their color choice for 2018, we can only imagine that a lot of jaws in the design world dropped.

Celebrating Wilmington’s Best Bosses

In 1958, a Chicago-based State Farm Insurance employee named Patricia Bays Haroski came up with the idea of National Boss's Day. The observance was meant to enhance and improve the relationships between employers and their employees. It took 4 years for the day to become official, the declaration signed by Illinois Governor Lott Kerner in 1962. Since that time, the day has been recognized not only across the United States, but also in India, Australia, and South Africa. Read More about Celebrating Wilmington’s Best Bosses »
