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. Clean-ups, plantings, festivals and more offer us the unique opportunity to take care of our part of the Earth, and Bice's Florist wants to offer you the chance to do the same at home, too. 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.

If we here at Bice's Florist could boil the fragrance of stargazer lilies down into an essence and wear it, we would. Such is the perky, pretty scent of these bold beauties, which remind us so much of spring and the fact that our gardens will once again grow. One of the wonderful things about flowers is that they are not only a treat for the eyes, but they appeal to all of the senses, including the olfactory one.

Of all the wonderful things that spring bestows, our favorite here at Bice's Florist has to got to be its flowers. It's no stretch to say that we wait all year for them, such is the power of the blooms we traditionally associate with spring. Crocus, lilac, hyacinth, tulip, azalea, hydrangea . . . We could go on, but we won't. Allow us just to show you what spring, in flowers, looks like. Read More about Showing Off Spring’s Snazziest Blooms »
With International Women's Day on the horizon, it's about time to start thinking about who you'll be honoring this year. If you're like us at Bice's Florist, you've probably got lots of women to celebrate on this important day, which is itself devoted to recognizing the achievements of women across the world. It's also an occasion to set new goals, and indeed many IWD groups establish a theme each year that expresses their vision for the year ahead. Since 1909, the U.S. has been celebrating International Women's Day, and that has always included thoughtful gifts and gestures of support. Read More about International Women’s Day Is Here »
