Did you know that having a few close friends in your life- the kind you can talk to about anything, the ones who will be there through thick and thin- is actually good for your health? Studies show that people who are surrounded by close friends tend to live longer, healthier lives. If you have someone like this in your life, consider yourself lucky! On June 8th you have the perfect opportunity to show them how much they mean to you when we celebrate Best Friend’s Day. A great way to let your best friends know you appreciate them is by sending flowers this year, and Bice’s Florist has plenty of choices! Read More about What To Buy Your Bestie June 8
Summer is not only a time for long, warm days or playing outside and enjoying the sunshine. We also celebrate all manner of occasions, from birthdays and national holidays to moms, dads, and graduations during summer months. Of all the flowers to represent the versatility of summer, the sunflower is the most obvious choice. Historically, these hearty plants were one of the first crops planted in North America. Harvested for their seeds, Native American tribes in the Southwest United States and Mexico discovered ways to grind the seeds into flour, while other parts of the plant were used for medicine or to dye clothing. Today at Bice’s Florist, we rely on these sun worshippers to help us usher in the summer season. Read More about Early Summer’s Heavenly Sunflowers
Founded to commemorate those who have died in military service, Memorial Day is an excellent time to honor and remember our fallen heroes. There are many ways to honor our loved ones and the sacrifice they paid for our freedom. From picnics and parades to services at a local Veteran’s cemetery, paying our respects and showing our gratitude can take on many forms. Here at Bice’s Florist, we understand the importance of recognizing these individuals within our families, throughout our neighborhoods and across our nation. Bringing a basket brimming with flowers in red, white and blue to your celebration is a sure way to tie the sentiment of Memorial Day to the festivities at hand.

Graduation for our high school seniors is just around the corner, and along with prom, parties, awards ceremonies and other end of the school year events, it's certainly a momentous occasion worthy of our admiration. Bice's Florist congratulates all of our local graduates, and we haven't forgotten that many of them deserve flowers---lots and lots of flowers. It's customary to adorn ourselves with corsages and boutonnieres for prom, and it's just as traditional to offer a bouquet to the graduates we know and love.

May 6 through May 12 sees us celebrating not one but two types of empowered and empowering women: teachers and nurses. Appreciation week is the perfect time to honor these super ladies with something that is as full of strength and beauty as they are, Bice's Florist thinks.
And we know, we know. There are plenty of men who deserve our appreciation this week, too. But these fields are overwhelmingly dominated by women---women who are mentors and mamas, sisters, cousins, friends, neighbors, colleagues and allies. Read More about All The Super Ladies
Want to make Earth Day really special this year? Get out into the Fort Worth community and participate in one of the many events designed to celebrate our planet and promote environmental awareness.

Taking care of our immediate environment is a great way to teach our kids (and remind ourselves) that preservation and conservation are key to keeping our planet healthy, happy and beautiful. This goes for our home environment too. Read More about Not Your Garden-Variety Earth Day
Administrative Professionals Day is on the horizon (April 25), and we here at Bice's Florist know just the thing to kick things off. We're calling it "Desktop Awareness," and it's our own personal way to bring attention to the dire straits our work spaces often find themselves in after a long winter. Bereft of flowers and plants, our desks look empty and lifeless. They deserve more. Read More about Raise Awareness On Behalf Of Your Desktop
Don't overlook one of the most important aspects of doing that big spring deep clean, we here at Bice's Florist advise. As you're working to restore your home's balance after a long fall and winter, which may include editing out items, boxing up winter ones and an overall overhaul of what's in each room, don't forget to add back in plants and flowers when you're done. Why? Both---but especially plants---help to improve the air quality in your home and add a sense of vitality to it as well. Read More about Refresh Your Home With Some Spring Spirit
Bice's Florist loves an Easter basket---the more traditional, the better. And we're not talking simply about the ones that appear Easter morning brimming with chocolate bunnies and Peeps. We're talking about the kind that comes full of fresh flowers, brighter than a dozen dyed Easter eggs, fresher than you could imagine. The sense of the garden and the fruits it will eventually bear is so important during this time of year, which is why we love combining the basket with flowers reminiscent of the garden.
