As the New Year approaches, we turn our attention to making changes that will have a positive impact on our health, happiness and relationships. The floral experts at Schaaf Floral believe that flowers can accomplish all of this. Here’s how:
Flowers reduce stress. Studies show that gazing at the color green, especially in plants and flowers, has been known to lower stress and anxiety levels. Place a beautiful bouquet of flowers with leafy green accents near you as you work.
Flowers clean the air. Plants and flowers are air purifiers, absorbing harmful toxins and impurities and leaving fresh clean oxygen for us to breathe. When you place flowers in your home or office you might notice a reduction in headaches, congestion and other cold symptoms. Fresh air also helps you have better focus and pay attention to details.
Flowers boost creativity. Remember how you had a favorite color as a child? You still do. Enjoy flowers in your favorite hues while working on a creative project for maximum creative energy. Read More about An Inspiring New Year With Inspired Flowers

Started at Arlington National Cemetery, this program now extends across the nation and abroad. Let this be a time of remembrance and gratitude when you decorated your loved one's final resting place with a wreath or beautiful patriotic holiday flowers. The floral artisans at Schaaf Floral have a beautiful line of flowers and wreaths dedicated to honoring the memory of our heroic veterans. Read More about Patriotic Holiday Flowers

The first week of May is a big one in the gift giving and unofficial observance and celebration world. National Nurses’ Week starts on Sunday, May 6 and ends on Saturday, May 12.

Although there may be no intended coincidence in the fact that National Teacher Appreciation Week takes place between May 7 and May 11, or the fact that National Teacher Day occurs on May 8, it’s convenient that these two week-long events that pay homage to professionals who don’t get the recognition that they deserve.
