The festive bouquet shown above resembles the fireworks you’ve come to expect each Fourth of July, and is even named after the display! Fireworks showcases blue delphinium, red carnations, and white spider mums, which combine for a bright July 4th display.

Fun Fact: The Star-Spangled Banner, our beloved national anthem penned by Francis Scott Key, was originally written as a poem! Key observed the attack on Fort McHenry during the War of 1812 and wrote the poem that would later be put to music. It was chosen as our national anthem in 1931.

Our Party in the USA design, featured above, includes red roses, white star-shaped lilies and blue hydrangea. Together these blooms create an elegant design that will enhance any Independence Day celebration.

What to Do on The Fourth: Gather the family and head down to Buffalo Bayou for Houston’s main Independence Day event – Freedom Over Texas, sponsored by Citgo. You’ll find live music, family activities, and the best fireworks show in Houston.

Father’s Day Gifts for Sophisticated Dads

Father's Day gifts

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

St. Patrick’s Day Decor and Florals

St. Patrick's

Over 36 million people in the United States claim some Irish heritage, although tradition tells us that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! The holiday originated as the observance of the feast day of the Catholic patron saint but has since grown to include many traditions and symbols of the Emerald Isle as well. Here in Houston, our parade is a city-wide tradition that celebrates all things green and has fun and whimsical floats and attractions. Another Houston tradition is Breen’s Florist – and if you are looking for a way to decorate your home, or send a classic greeting to a Celtic friend, our floral designers have the ideas you need.

Did You Know? St. Patrick was not actually Irish. He was born in Great Britain and came to Ireland as a missionary. He is widely credited with establishing Christianity in the country.
