Here at Schaff Floral, we're inclined to turn to flowers for everything. And the occasion of Veterans Day this November 11, a holiday we've been celebrating in some form or another since 1919, is no exception. While we gather together as a community to commemorate the incredible efforts of our U.S. military veterans, we also want to take the time to acknowledge those who live far away or can't join us. The parades, parties and observances are meaningful rituals that help us pay due respect, but there's no substitute for making a personal gesture in the form of a home-cooked meal, phone call or gift. Give flowers this Veterans Day. Read More about Give Flowers on Veterans Day

Although we don't need an excuse to do nice things for other people, Sweetest Day does give us a wonderful opportunity.

This Sweetest Day, come to Schaaf Floral for the ideas and inspiration that you'll need.
Did You Know? Sweetest Day is often thought of as a "lesser Valentine's Day", set aside for romantics and sweethearts.

Therefore, the gathering was quite literally a "house-warming". These days, although gifts may vary, the idea is still to convey warmth, comfort and a welcoming air.
