September is self-care month, a time to slow down and remember to do something healthy and nurturing for yourself, and to encourage others to do the same. Getting in touch with nature is one great way to encourage a sense of healthy balance and well-being. Take a walk outside, spend time meditating in a nearby park, or simply bring some elements of nature to you. Gorgeous leafy potted plants will bring a sense of balance to your home as well. Curran’s Flowers suggests sending a wellness plant to someone you love, including yourself. Read More about September’s Self Care Tip: Plants!
Every Easter, my mom sends my family a beautiful arrangement of Calla lilies. It’s her way of staying connected to us even when we can’t be together for that holiday. My children know “Grandmother’s been here” when they see a new arrival of lilies each spring, and we always send her a Thank-You picture of all of us together in our Easter dresses next to her flowers. The tradition of receiving these beautiful flowers is just as meaningful as the gesture itself. Currans Flowers knows that including flowers in part of your family traditions makes the occasion even more meaningful, and it gives that particular flower special meaning, too.

When Marian McQuade first developed the idea of Grandparents Day, it was with the idea that families would have an opportunity to set aside time for one another. With 15 children, 43 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, it’s reasonable to think she was excited about seeing several generations in one place. Today, we celebrate this special day on the second Sunday of September. Curran’s Flowers recommends bringing your special grandparent their favorite flowers to commence Grandparents Day. Have children ask grandparents about their own childhood. With so many memories to tap into, certainly a few stories are sure to arise. Read More about Great Floral Traditions To Carry On
How you choose to decorate your home says a lot about you. For instance, if you choose to use white when decorating after Labor Day, maybe you’re an independent thinker who feels comfortable breaking tradition. After all, many of the “no white after Labor Day” rules had a lot to do with simply staying cool in warmer months. However, using fall or winter textures in shades of white or ivory can have a dramatic impact with a unique flair. The floral artisans at Currans Flowers have some amazing white designs to share with you as you make your own rules about styling your home. Read More about White Floral Styles That Work All Year
Bees are an excellent addition to any garden. Not only do they pollinate locally to encourage growth and diversity in your own yard, they are also vital in pollinating much of the world’s food sources. These industrious creatures maintain balance in a healthy eco-system but their numbers are declining rapidly. By encouraging bees to visit your garden or backyard, you are fostering their growth and helping to rebuild the bee community. Currans Flowers recommends bringing bee-friendly bouquets to your porch or outdoor patio, having fresh water available to prevent dehydration in bees, and maintaining shady areas throughout your yard to keep them cool as they work.
