Heading to someone else's home for Thanksgiving this year? You're in good company (and will be, we trust). Last year, nearly 50 million people traveled 50 miles or more, over hill and dale, to break bread with family or friends who hosted them for the holiday. If that trend continues, and we here at Currans Flowers suspect it will, that's a lot of people showing up on a lot of doorsteps. And we're here to remind you not to do that empty-handed.
Even in these post-Emily Post days, it's customary to offer your host or hostess a gift for their efforts, extending your gratitude and appreciation. We've got two suggestions for how to approach this gift-giving scenario. Read More about Gifts for the Givers
There is no official flower for Veterans Day, and we here at Currans Flowers are wondering, What gives?
We have a half dozen florals reserved for more somber occasions - white lilies, chrysanthemums, red poppies worn on the lapel - but no designated flowers for special days like these. While that leaves room for us to be creative in what we send to our beloved patriots, customizing an arrangement to his or her particular taste, it can also leave us wishing there was a distinct tribute that made the occasion very clear. We think its the perfect time to both be creative and pay tribute. Read More about Honor Them Through Flowers

It's also safe to say that we know what we're doing when it comes to tending Fall's favorite flower. How major are our mums? See for yourself. Read More about Major Mums for Fall

As adults, we spend nearly one third of our waking hours in the workplace. As such, the atmosphere created by our boss can go a long way to either contributing to our overall happiness, or taking away from it.
