There are many holidays on the calendar, and it seems every day we hear of another whimsical observance or “special day”. But none may be so carefree as “Just Because Day” – a time set aside for no other reason than to do absolutely anything you want to do!
You may be surprised to hear that we can actually trace this observance back 50 years to a family in California. The tradition in their home was to spend one day a year buying gifts or doing nice things for the other family members, as well as trying new experiences together – just because. The idea caught on in their community, and decades later, the nation knows about it. You can use this day to go someplace new, to ignore the housework for a few hours, or to surprise someone with a gift – and no matter what you do, no explanation is necessary. Trias Flowers has a long legacy of helping our Miami friends and neighbors to make other people smile – and this day is no different! Continue reading

There are two distinctions regarding the types of florals available for these occasions – funeral flowers and sympathy flowers. The difference is simple.

Here in South Florida, we have the luxury of warm weather and beautiful flowers most of the year. If you would like to take advantage of that fact to create a butterfly garden, there are just a few simple rules to follow. Butterfly gardens are not only aesthetically lovely, but they give the butterfly a safe place to relax, feed and pollinate. The experts at Trias Flowers are happy to help you to create the perfect outdoor space that will bring all the interest and fascination of nature to your doorstep.
Once you begin selecting flowers which will attract butterflies, you will probably notice that they will also encourage honeybees to visit your yard. Although you may at first be intimidated by this thought, you can rest easy. Honeybees are critical to our ecosystem, yet are suffering a critical population loss. By providing a safe haven for them, you will be doing your part to help their plight – and you need not worry. Honeybees foraging for nectar and pollen are uninterested in stinging you. In fact, they will only sting you if threatened or harassed. Continue reading

More brides and grooms choose to walk down the aisle in June than any other month of the year. Experts theorize many different reasons for this – from beautiful weather to easier travel for friends and family. But there is a more historical theory as well – in both ancient Rome and Celtic cultures, a great number of weddings occurred in June, In Rome, it was to garner the protection of the goddess Juno, and in Ireland, couples were married 6 weeks after elders arranged their marriages on May Day. (May 1). Many of our ancestors came from these areas, and the tradition may have carried on. Regardless of the reasoning, June has officially been named Wedding Month – so if you are one of the couples planning a local Miami wedding, we’d like to introduce you to Trias Flowers, Wedding & Events.
