Here at Trias Flowers, we're happy to welcome the noble poinsettia back into the shop again. This cheerful plant, symbolic of the season, is used abundantly in homes and workplaces throughout the country during this time of year. We love this winter bloomer so much, in fact, that we even have a national day for it (December 12).
Introduced to the U.S. from Mexico, the poinsettia came by its Christmas-plant reputation through a legend. It's said that in the 16th century, a humble Mexican girl was instructed by an angel to pick some weeds by the side of the road and place them on her church's altar in celebration of Jesus' birthday. The weeds blossomed into the poinsettia, and the rest is history. Read More about Spirited Office Decor for the Holidays »

We know that every Thanksgiving table is different, which is why it's so important to have a variety of centerpieces on offer. If you're the Thanksgiving host this year, organizing your table goes right along with designing it.

Sweetest Day is a holiday which began in Cleveland in the early 1900's. A candy company employee named Herbert Kingston suggested giving boxes of chocolates to the underprivileged, the orphans and those in nursing homes. He rallied the executives to his cause, and in its first year, the initiative was a rousing success, heavily covered by the media. Over the last century ,the tradition has continued, primarily in the Midwest and the Northeast.
Trias Flowers knows that chocolate and flowers have something in common - they both inspire happiness. Whether you decide to give sweets and treats, or would prefer flowers, we have everything you need. Let's make Sweetest Day famous in Miami! Read More about Sweetest Day Flowers & Gifts »

Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children. ~Alex Haley
Grandparents Day is observed on the first Sunday after Labor Day. In the early 1970's, a West Virginia mother and grandmother named Marian McQuade started a one-woman crusade to see a day established to honor the legacy and contributions of our grandparents, and she saw her dream realized when Jimmy Carter made the holiday official in 1978.
Marian didn't hope for parades and press coverage - rather her vision was to encourage family togetherness and the preservation of personal histories and legacies. Her perfect day included reunions and get-togethers attended by many generations, to inspire conversation, story telling and sharing. Of course, she also hoped that grandchildren would take the opportunity to get to know the older generation, and to express their love and appreciation for them. It is in this spirit that Trias Flowers offers the Grandparents Day collection, guaranteed to make them smile! Read More about Grandparents Day Florals »

Did You Know? It is believed that most of the founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence on August 2, 1776 - not July 4th. In fact, only two original patriots are thought to have signed on the day we now celebrate. The facts were controversial for many years, and some still wonder about the actual date the document was signed. Read More about Celebrating July Fourth in Style »

Flowers have long been the language of deep emotion and sentiments, and on Memorial Day, they have always played an important role in helping us to remember the fallen. In fact, the observance has its own official flower, the red poppy. Although this flower is rarely given out today, it does still symbolize the sacrifices of countless brave men and women throughout our history. At Trias Flowers, we use different flowers to express our respect and gratitude, but these offerings are no less patriotic and meaningful. This May 29,send a Memorial Day remembrance from Trias Flowers, and give them the honor they deserve.
The History of the Red Poppy: After World War I, a soldier by the name of John McCrae penned a poem which would forever link the red poppy with Memorial Day. In Flanders Fields recounted the heart-wrenching scene of beautiful poppies growing up around the soldiers graves on the battlefield, and firmly established the flower as an ambassador for the holiday.
