While the holidays are a wonderful time to spend with friends, family and loved ones, this season can also bring a sadness for those who are no longer with us. One excellent way to honor their memory, their service to their community and our country, or their value in your family is to place a beautiful holiday wreath on their grave site. Wreaths Across America is a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery that you can participate in wherever you are. Choose a beautiful, hand-crafted wreath from Ah Sam Florist to honor and remember your loved ones this season.

As you begin to prepare your Thanksgiving table this season be sure to include elements of thankfulness to help you and your guests focus on what’s important. One great idea is to have guests write what they’re thankful for on fall leaf cut-outs. Display by attaching to a Curly Willow tree alongside the table. Choose colorful fall leaves that compliment your tables decor. The floral expert at Ah Sam Florist also have some delightful centerpieces in our fall collection for you to choose from this season.
Just because Halloween is approaching, there’s no reason to let your artistic decorating style slide into anything less than stunning. Use fall colors, festive lights and bright floral arrangements with Halloween themes to make the most of this holiday in your decor. The design experts at Ah Sam Florist have been hard at work creating floral arrangements that are as classy and tasteful as they are spooky and festive.
Founded by Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade in the 1970s, Grandparents Day was created as a means of honoring grandparents while giving grandparents the opportunity to show love to their children’s children. Of course, children also become aware of the amazing strength, wisdom and knowledge their grandparents’ generation can offer, which is another benefit to celebrating Grandparents Day. This year on the 2nd Sunday in September, Ah Sam Florist recommends bringing one of our beautiful arrangements to your favorite grandparents while you create memories that will last for generations.
Are you hosting 4th of July this year, or going to someone else’s cookout/barbecue/potluck/dinner? In either case, add some flowers to your shopping list. You can’t compete with the fireworks, but you can create a table or an atmosphere that offers some excitement and dresses things up just a little bit. We like to keep it casual on the 4th, but that doesn’t mean you can’t appeal to Ah Sam Florist to hook you up with some inspired summer flowers!
-Clarence Budington Kelland, American writer (1881-1964), about his father
Fathers teach us so many things in life, whether the lessons are deliberate or we simply watch and learn. The floral designers at Ah Sam Florist know that dads who set strong examples for their children should be celebrated. This year, Father’s Day falls on June 17th and is a great chance to thank your dad for the impact he’s made in your life. Send a card, take him to lunch, or gift him with a special item that reflects everything he is to you.
