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. Learning that a passionate shade of purple was their choice for the new year was as startling as it was surprising. Here at Julia’s Florist, however, we see this announcement as an opportunity to share a dramatic, regal, and elegant color with our customers. Make no mistake about it; purple is one of the most magnificent colors for flowers. Read More about Bring Pantone’s Color Of The Year Into Your Space »

Veterans Day is just around the corner, and here in Wilmington we're preparing a bevy of tributes, from parades to observances to personal celebrations in our homes. Our community is rich with heroes, those who served in the U.S. military and spent much of their lives protecting and defending our country. We owe them every parade in the book, but here at Julia's Florist, we think we owe them flowers, too.
While Veterans Day doesn't have a designated flower, we have some contenders, all of them within that patriotic red, white and blue palette we enjoy during those occasions when we honor our country. Read More about Red, White and Blue for Veterans Day »

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 »
The days are shorter and cooler here in Wilmington as the holiday season is upon us. What better kick-off to this bountiful, starkly beautiful time of year than Halloween?

When you're placing the pumpkins, gourds and cornucopias, be sure to include some harvest flowers into your designs.

While many think that Sweetest Day is a holiday for romantics - and some have even dubbed it "little Valentine's Day - the origin and meaning behind the day is actually quite different. In fact, this 100 year old observance was actually established more as a day to perform acts of kindness to friends, colleagues, or even strangers who need encouragement. It is a day to tell people that they matter, that they are important and yes - that they are the sweetest! If you celebrate Sweetest Day, or even if this is the first you are hearing about it - the team at Julia's Florist thought that you might enjoy the history behind this sweet day.

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 »
