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.

Whether a special occasion or “just because”, don’t miss your opportunity to enjoy these amazing flowers.
Spring Herald: One of the first flowers of spring is always the crocus, which announces the arrival of the season when it pokes its head through the dirt. In colder parts of the country, it often pushes its way through the snow cover. That’s one determined flower! Continue reading

One of the most beautiful ways to elevate your floral arrangements to another stylistic level is by incorporating wild accents. These unique elements create an aesthetic that is truly out of the ordinary, and is even a bit unexpected. When you desire to send a spectacular design that stands out from the rest, trust Breen’s Florist. As professional designers, we are passionate about our art.
Wild accents can include grasses, natural twigs and branches, berries or cattails. They are details which accentuate the floral display with organic grace and a bit of rustic beauty. Some of the more popular wild accents are succulents. These diverse plants come in such a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors that they textural interest to any arrangement.
The simplicity of White Orchid and Succulent is key to its beauty. When one of the most elegant blooms in the floral world is combined with the hardy succulent plant, it creates a balanced and striking effect. Lightly nuanced with delicate grasses, this floral design is a stunning and special gift.
Another variation of orchids, succulents, and wild accents is presented in Natual Harmony. White phalaenopsis orchids, exotic green cymbidium orchids and succulents are arranged in a bed of moss and rocks. The graceful turn if the curly willow adds just the right artistic touch, creating a sophisticated design for home or office.
