Fall For It

Fall flowers in Houston Texas

Breen’s Florist – Changing Seasons

It’s 95 degrees outside, humidity snuggles in at approximately 50% and we are just a few days away from … you guessed it …FALL!

In as much as fall is a welcomed and beloved seasonal change synonymous with football, leaves changing color and lower temperatures; in Houston and surrounding areas this season is more of an idea, or, a suggestion. Heck, it’s an outright fantasy most days! In fact, it will still be hot, sticky and sweaty well into the next weeks (and maybe months) while much of the nation settles into this wonderful the-colors-are-a-changing time of year.   

So what’s a fall-lover to do if Houston is your home? Here at Breen’s Florist we have very good news for you – not so good for your overworked home and auto air conditioners per se – but good for you.

It's fall in Houston and time to send flowers

Breen’s Florist – Autumn Day

Since the season is perhaps most cherished for the leaves changing into their autumn best, we have many ways to bring fall foliage and flowers directly into your homes, offices and social events. Best of all, Breen’s Fall Collection designs are replete in the coloration and textures that only fall can claim. You and your recipients will instantly fall in love (pun intended) with the warm and earthy color palettes of rust, red, cinnamon, pumpkin, gold, cranberry and chocolate brown that are highlighted in our arrangements;  Fall Brights, Warm Amber, Changing Seasons, Wild About Autumn, Fall Crock and Amber Lights, to name a few. Breen’s is already receiving bi-weekly shipments of the most gorgeous leaves, branches and fall flower varieties that sooth the soul and spark a re-energized creativity in us all.

Peridot – August Birthstone Collection

Save 10% when ordering Breen’s Florist “Peridot” arrangement. Enter coupon code: PERIDOT

For the month of August, Breen’s Florist is celebrating with our birthstone collection arrangement, “Peridot.” Our arrangement features green antheriums, bells of Ireland, green cymbidium orchids, and other flowers to help accent the green that represents the peridot gemstone.

While the peridot gemstone is an inexpensive stone, it represents something much more valuable than money. The ancient Egyptians believed that the peridot harnessed the power of nature and was the gem of the sun. It is said that the stone brings protection, peace, and happiness. The accents of white roses represent a peacefulness within the arrangement, while the fun of the lime green orchids and antheriums bring a smile to those who celebrate their birthday this month.

The peridot gemstone is one of the few stones that have only one color: olive-green. The intensity of green depends on the amount of iron that is contained within the stone itself. Other flowers that might also be used to create a beautiful arrangement would be green hydrangea and succulents.

Breen’s Florist’s White Orchid and Succulent arrangement features the olive green colors from the peridot stone.

Married couples can also appreciate the peridot gemstone as it represents the 16th year of marriage. Perfect gift ideas may include 16 Lemonade roses, which have beautiful lime-green blooms.

Breen’s Florist will have the exclusive “Peridot” arrangement available throughout the month of August and remember, you can save 10% on the arrangement by using coupon code: PERIDOT.

If the tropical feel of this design is not up your alley, feel free to call one of our sales team to discuss creating a beautiful design featuring some of the other perfect flowers for this birthstone.
