Both flowering and green plants are perfect to have indoors, but they are far more than home decor! Plants are known to create a sense of calm and serenity, cleanse toxins from the air, and even increase our productivity. Here at Bice's Florist, we think that if a plant is willing to work that hard to benefit our lives, that we should strive to keep them as happy and healthy as we can as well. Although there are hundreds of thousands of varieties of plants - and just as many instructions on how to care for them - this week we are highlighting two of our favorite plants. For your Fort Worth home or office, you may wish to add these beauties to your decor.
Coming Soon! Administrative Professionals Week is the perfect opportunity to send plants (or flowers, or gifts) to your favorite personnel. Call now, it begins April 23rd! Read More about Keeping Indoor Green Plants Happy »
As World War 2 came to a close and businesses began to get back to normal, the need for people to rejoin the workplace was great. Secretaries Day was instituted in the 1950's as a way to encourage people to choose the career and to help companies - locally, regionally, and nationally - to prosper. Through the years the terminology has changed and the roles have evolved, but we still celebrate those who are often unsung heroes in our businesses. National Administrative Professionals Week is observed from April 23rd-April 29th, and is designed to recognize the receptionists, assistants, and support employees that work diligently every day to keep our businesses, and by extension, our economy, running smoothly. What would we do without them?
At Bice's Florist, we are privileged to help you to honor these important employees, with our collection of flowers and plants designed to brighten their desk and their day. Read More about Administrative Professionals Week Begins April 23rd »
Daisies are perhaps one of the most prolific flowers in the world. With over 23,000 varieties, these cheerful flowers grow on every continent except Antarctica - and although the classic yellow and while English daisy may be the most iconic, daisies come in every color of the rainbow, and in many different forms. They are a very popular bloom in the springtime, as the perfect embodiment of carefree warm days and lazy afternoons with loved ones. Freshen up your home with a big bouquet of spring daisies, and bring the sunshine in!
April Birthdays: The daisy is not only the perfect spring flower, it is also the birth flower of April. So when it comes time to celebrate the April birthdays of your friends and family, make sure to call Bice's Florist - we'll create a floral design with all their favorite colors and flowers, featuring the blossom of the month.

National Puppy Day was established in 2007 by animal rights advocate Colleen Paige, who was hoping to illuminate some pressing issues affecting puppies - namely overpopulation, the abuses of some puppy mills, and the fate of shelter dogs. The day is set aside primarily to encourage prospective owners to adopt rescue or shelter dogs when looking for new furry family members.
At Bice's Florist, we have beautiful floral designs perfect to celebrate the dog lover in your life or to thank the Fort Worth volunteers and shelter workers who are dedicated to rescuing these animals, as well as loving them and fostering them until a new home is found.

St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17th, and its early spring timing is perfect to celebrate all things green! Tradition finds us drinking green beer, wearing green clothes, and giving green flowers like carnations, mums, and orchids. Bice's Florist is happy to join in all the festive fun with beautiful floral designs that will deliver the luck o' the Irish to all of your Celtic friends and neighbors. In Fort Worth, all the green you need is at Bice's Florist.
Did You Know? St. Patrick was not Irish - he was English - and his given name was Maewyn Succat. He chose Patrick as a name when he became a Catholic priest and missionary; the name means ""well-born". Read More about St. Patrick’s Day Green Flowers »
We may not have cold weather to the extent of others around the country. But here in Fort Worth we still look forward to the warming temperatures and beautiful sunny days that spring offers. The change of season brings new flowers, new colors, and a fresh attitude that leaves us cheerful and optimistic. At Bice's Flowers, we have all the spring blooms that will add new life and attitude to your home or office.
Early Riser: In other parts of the country, the first indication that spring is on the way is the crocus. This delicate flower often valiantly pushes through snow cover to herald the arrival of spring. Read More about Seasonal Spring Flowers are Here »

International Women's Day has been celebrated since the early 1900's and has seen a century of challenges and struggles, but also achievement and success. The initiative continues, asking each one of us to be an agent for change within our own spheres of influence. Recognizing that no one country, government, or social justice organization can affect global results on its own, the movement encourages purposeful collaboration. Organizers believe that working together, we can advance the cause of women and unleash their potential onto economies, governments, and cultures. On March 8th, the world unites for one purpose.

“Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.” ~Frank A. Clark
A movement of kindness was started in New Zealand years ago, and it has rippled across the world. Random Acts of Kindness Day is celebrated on February 17th , and serves as an annual reminder that it does not take much effort to be kind to others. A thoughtful note, a flower handed out with a smile, or a generous tip are all small things that can have big effects on the one who is on the receiving end. Bice's Florist is in the business of sharing these moments - and we are eager to help you make this day extra-special for people around you. Read More about A Day for Kindness in Fort Worth »
