There's one day that rolls around each year and offers you the chance to express your love to the people you care about the most. No, it's not Valentine's Day; it's Galentine's Day, a variant of the biggest romantic holiday of all time. This day is devoted to celebrating the love between female friends or family members, and arose out of a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation. In that, the main character rounded up all her girls for lunch, gave them gifts and then proclaimed February 13 "Galentine's . . . only the best day of the year."
Trias Flowers loves the concept, and we have some ideas about what you can give for it. Read More about A Sweet Gift For Your Bestie On Galentine’s Day »
What's the perfect number of flowers to give in a year? 12.
Here at Trias Flowers, we're very familiar with all of the ways you can give fresh flowers and plants to someone you love, but are continually surprised by the variations on the theme. We've seen every occasion for floral giving, and yet our customers continue to surprise us with their imagination and investment in having their flowers express their deepest sentiments. One of the most compelling flower-gifting concepts we've come across is to send them every month for an entire year, a special way of reminding someone consistently how much you care.

At Trias Flowers, we're convinced flowers have the power to lift the spirit, promote a positive outlook, enhance the living or work space and yes, impact health. And we're not alone, with more and more studies confirming how flowers and plants influence how we feel. A 2008 American Society of Horticultural Science study found that hospitalized patients who have flowers or potted plants in their rooms use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure overall compared to their flower-less counterparts. Other research confirms that yes, flowers make us happy when we receive them, but that happiness level doesn't disappear upon receipt. Instead, it lasts days.

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 embrace Thanksgiving with open arms, which are then promptly filled with flowers. After all, this is the season of the centerpiece, and we at Trias Flowers are literally steeped in them.
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. Whether you're using heirloom linens and generations-old china or carrying off a more simple affair, you'll want to begin thinking early about the flowers you'll place at the heart of your table.
