When it comes to Houston weddings, you won’t find more professional designs and beautiful arrangements than at Breen’s Florist.
Did You Know? Many feel that the tradition of June ceremonies goes all the way back to ancient Rome. Most weddings at the time were celebrated in the month named after the goddess Juno, who was the protector of women – especially when they were getting married or raising children. Continue reading

Father’s Day is June 18 – and although you could head out to the hardware store or sporting goods emporium as usual, we have a new suggestion this year. How about sending Dad a sophisticated, dramatic or elegant floral arrangement for his office? You may not have ever thought of giving flowers to Dad, but these arrangements are bold and confident and perfect for anyone – and are sure to be conversation piece wherever they are sent. For Father’s Day gifts that are unexpectedly beautiful, come to Breen’s Florist.
Did You Know? Father’s Day is a relatively new holiday, established in 1966 by President Lyndon Johnson. The inspiration behind the holiday was William Smart, a single dad who had raised 6 children single handedly. His daughter felt that he deserved the same level of praise and recognition as moms traditionally received on Mother’s Day. Even though it was decades in the making, Father’s Day was finally recognized. Continue reading
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell

Whether to adorn a grave site – or to send a floral arrangement to a family still mourning a loss – you can rely on the experts at Breen’s Florist to design and deliver Memorial Day flowers and patriotic tributes which properly recognize and honor them.

Many things have changed through the years, but many traditions have not only survived, but thrived! Going to prom is still an important rite of passage for teenagers, an event that is anticipated for months and remembered for many years. Wearable flowers have also endured as a beautiful custom that is as much a part of the experience as the gowns, tuxes, and limos. And although we do have some different options with boutonnieres and corsages, the tradition of wearing beautiful flowers as an accompaniment to formal attire is still as popular as it ever was. When you are planning to attend your Houston area prom, look no further than Breen’s Florist for the most striking and unique wearable flowers. Continue reading
May gives us the opportunity to appreciate teachers and recognize nurses. Why are these two professions so worthy of our accolades? Because both are committed to positively influencing the world – they invest time, concern, talent and love into everyone they come in contact with. This is why Breen’s Florist is proud to help you to honor these special people on their special days – May 9 is National Teachers Day, and May 6 is National Nurses Day.
Did You Know? There are approximately 3.1 million nurses and about the same number of teachers in the United States. But we think that none are quite so amazing as our local Houston area professionals!
“When you’re a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life – or a life will touch yours.” – Unknown
Nurses are angels with stethoscopes, caregivers with nerves of steel. They are a powerful combination of empathy and practicality, expertise and comfort. Anyone who has spent time in a hospital knows that it is the nurses who make the difference. This May 6, send a beautiful floral design to the nurse – or nurses – who touched your life. Although we sometimes only spend a few days or weeks together, the imprint on our hearts is permanent.
“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” -Henry Brooks Adams
Teachers are at once scientists and authors, mathematicians and counselors. They guide and mentor, encourage and inspire, and have almost unbelievable patience and commitment. If you wish to give credit to your favorite teacher past or present, share a photo or story to social media on March 9th, and don’t forget the hashtag #ThankATeacher. In this way, you’ll be joining with people all over the country looking to acknowledge the important work of our educators. Of course, they would also love a beautiful bouquet of flowers or a delicious basket of gourmet treats. After all, who doesn’t love to be recognized for the work they do? There are so many people in our lives every day who quietly work to make a difference. We are thrilled to have the chance to help you in honoring them today and every day. Breen’s Florist is your local hometown source for the very best appreciation gifts and flowers!
