Have you been invited to Thanksgiving in someone else's home? A beloved family member or friend, perhaps, who is going to pull off the biggest, feastiest dinner of the year for several lucky guests?
If so, you're not alone. Last year, 50 million Americans traveled over hill and dale to gather round someone else's table. And while you may be planning to contribute some stuffing or your signature green bean casserole to the mix, we at Norfolk Florist think you should come bearing flowers as well. And because we aren't totally biased toward flowers, we're suggesting chocolate, too. Read More about Great Gifts for Holiday Hosts
There are so many ways to thank a veteran on November 11. In our Norfolk community, we gather to do so through parades and observances and parties. In our homes, we host brunches and dinners. We call and email those who are far from us and otherwise acknowledge those neighbors and acquaintances who served their country in the U.S. military, defending and protecting our interests.
We at Norfolk Florist are commemorating right there alongside you. In addition, we've got patriotic flowers just waiting to be delivered to that special hero in your life, or brought home to surprise the one you live with. Read More about Patriotic Flowers for Veterans Day

In 1958, an employee at State Farm Insurance in Chicago had an idea. Patricia Bays Haroski felt that if she could succeed in establishing a national day to celebrate the relationship between employers and their employees, that we would see more productive and happier workplaces.

At Norfolk Florist, we see every day the importance of recognizing those who encourage, mentor, inspire and promote others. A great boss does all of these things, and October 16 is the day to tell them how much you appreciate them. Read More about Recognizing a Great Boss
