The new year is a great time for preparing to make changes that will enhance and improve our lives. Each year we make resolutions and seek to better ourselves. One easy way to invigorate your new year is with flowers! The floral experts at Breen's Florist can show you several reasons plants and flowers in your world can truly make a positive impact on your daily health and well-being.
Flowers purify the air. Plants and flowers are natural air fresheners, absorbing toxins that can cause headaches, congestion and other cold symptoms, while giving off a fresh fragrance that will leave you feel renewed and refreshed.
Flowers reduce stress. The color green is a known stress-reducer, so placing flowers with leafy green foliage nearby is sure to help you lower stress and anxiety levels by presenting a calm, relaxing atmosphere.
Flowers boost creativity. Viewing your favorite color has been proven to enhance creative thought. The next time you're in a creative slump, bring home your favorite colored blooms for a quick, easy boost of ingenuity. Read More about Invigorate Your New Year

The word daisy comes from an Anglo-Saxon translation which means "day's eye", and it was given this name because many species of daisies close up at night and reopen their flower heads in the morning. This is just one of the fascinating facts about this flower that appears simple but offers much more than meets the eye. This complex bloom has over 23,000 species, is related to the artichoke, and is actually many flowers in one - and because it is also the birth flower of April, we thought we would tell you a bit more about it. When purchasing bouquets for April birthdays, or simply celebrating spring - call Breen's Florist. We are committed to bringing all the beauty of springtime to Houston, one floral design at a time.

For over a century, International Women's Day has celebrated the social, cultural, political, and economic contributions and achievements of women. Recognized in 20 countries, the initiative has borne witness to a lot of victorious moments but has also confronted heartbreaking challenge and injustice. Looking ahead with bold confidence, the groups that make up the collective effort continue to work towards gender parity, social justice, equality for everyone. Those intimately involved with the movement are very aware that the responsibility for fighting for these rights doesn't fall on the shoulders of one entity - be it a non-profit, a corporation, a social action committee, or a government. Rather, true advancements are made when all band together with others around the globe.
On March 8th, join the movement by posting your activities with the hashtag #BeBoldForChange. Read More about International Women’s Day, Local & Global
Floral Design Day is a day to celebrate the artistic flair and creativity of professional designers across the country. The day was originally established as a tribute to Carl Rittner, whose School of Floral Design was considered visionary and innovative, giving credence to the talent of florists everywhere and dispelling the myth that they simply "placed flowers in a vase". Applying the concepts of the visual arts - color, texture, space and line - the industry was elevated and recognized as an artistic discipline unto itself. For those who have dedicated their lives to making the world more beautiful - we celebrate you! Read More about The Artistry of Floral Design
