The History of Valentine’s Day

January 15, 2020

valentines-day-february-14thValentine’s Day is essentially the most romantic day of the year, but have you ever wondered why an entire day was dedicated to telling our loved ones how we feel? After all, you should be able to show your appreciation for someone every day of the year! Well, the truth is that Valentine’s Day wasn’t necessarily always about sending Valentine’s flowers, exchanging gifts and munching on some of the sweetest treats – here’s how it really all began.

Who Was St. Valentine?

Although three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus are recognized by the Catholic Church, one of the most popular Valentine’s Day legends is centered on the saint that was a Roman priest during the third century. At this particular time, history explains that there was an emperor named Claudius who felt that single men, rather than men who were married and/or had children, were better off as soldiers. As a result, Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage for men, at which point saint Valentine stepped in to marry men and women despite the emperor’s ruling. Continue Reading…

What do Flower Colors Mean?

January 3, 2020

When you see a flower, what is the first thing you notice? Is it its size? Its shape? Its scent? Or perhaps…is it its color? A flower’s color is one of many factors that makes nature so beautiful, and today we’d like to pose the following question: do you know what each color means? If not, we do! Let’s take a look at flower color meaning:

Red

Although red flowers are most commonly associated with feelings of true love and passion, they can also be used to convey respect, desire, and courage. Our favorite flower species available in red are roses (of course – these are a classic, but keep in mind that they also come in other colors too!), tulips, geraniums and poppies.

Best Indoor Flowers and Plants For The Winter

January 2, 2020

Undoubtedly one of the best parts about summer is the fact that our gardens are in full bloom. Between those located in our backyards and on commercial properties, you can find some of the nicest landscapes around during the warmer months! But then there’s winter, and as the trees lose their leaves, our thriving gardens also begin to wilt. However, that certainly doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the beauty of flowers and plants during this time of year too; you just have to bring them indoors! Below, find out a few different species of flowers and plants that we recommend:

Dish Garden

A major benefit of dish gardens is that they are easy to maintain, so unlike all of the work you may have to do outdoors during the summer months, taking care of these indoors can be a piece of cake! Essentially, dish gardens are like a miniature garden that you can build right inside your home – just make sure that you use plants and/or flowers that thrive under the same conditions.

Day of the Dead Flowers and History

October 28, 2019

Day of the Dead Girl with MakeupWhat Is Day of the Dead?

Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos), is a holiday that is celebrated annually on November 1st and 2nd to honor and remember those that have passed on. The holiday resembles All Saints Day and All Souls Day, which are celebrated after Halloween on the Christian calendar.

First developed in Mexico, the Day of the Dead is most notably celebrated in Latin American regions, although it is becoming increasingly popular throughout the United States, too!

Why Is Día de los Muertos Celebrated?

When the Aztecs first began observing this occasion over 3,000 years ago, their ultimate goal was to honor and celebrate the deceased as their spirits returned, not necessarily to mourn those who are no longer with us. While it is definitely still a time of reflection and remembrance, the main focus is to celebrate the lives that our loved ones lived.
