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 »

What are the characteristics that make up a great boss? Experts tell us that even though bosses come in all shapes, sizes and styles, there are definitely some common attributes which indicate that a good boss is destined to be a great one.

Did You Know? National Boss's Day originated in Chicago in 1958, the brainchild of Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee of State Farm Insurance. It took 4 years, but in 1962 the observance was made official nationally, and is dedicated to enhancing the relationships between employees and employers.

Let's face it, those of us in Miami can feel a little left out as we hear of everyone anticipating the fall season. We don't really experience a decrease in temperatures, nor do we have the opportunity to enjoy the splendor of changing fall foliage. Still, many of us still love to decorate our homes with the colors of autumn - either to remember past years up north, or to simply change up the ambiance a bit. If you are looking to give your home a bit of an autumn air, Trias Flowers has some fall-inspired ideas, which we present to you Florida style!
The colors of autumn are traditionally yellowish gold, red burgundy, and burnt orange. While our friends may be potting mums and asters, we have a different spin on seasonal floral designs. Read More about Floral Designs in Autumn Colors »
Statistics tell us that in any given year, 15% of Americans will move to a new home. That means that 40 million people will have new places to live, and countless more will have new neighbors. If you are invited to the housewarming party, or simply want to surprise a newly relocated friend or relative, look to Trias Flowers for elegant housewarming gifts.
History of Housewarming: Interestingly enough, the term housewarming is quite literal. In the days before electricity and central heat, when a new family moved into a home, their friends and neighbors would come over bearing gifts of firewood. This was to help the new homeowners keep their fireplace going during the long winter - to keep the house warm. Read More about Elegant Housewarming 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 »

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! Read More about Just Because Day Floral Bouquets »
