As the new year rolls in, we start to think about how we can make improvements to our health and well-being. At Al's Florist, we've found one of the best ways to do this is by surrounding yourself with flowers! Plants and flowers have so many benefits that you'll feel like a whole new you in no time.
Flowers add color to your life. Color encourages creativity, so surrounding yourself with flowers in your favorite colors will encourage creative thought and energy as you work.
Plants and flowers freshen the air. Because they breath out what we breath in, and vice versa, plants and flowers are natural air fresheners. Throw in their beautiful fragrances and you'll wonder why you didn't fill your home with flowers sooner!
Green foliage is a natural stress reducer. The color green is known to alleviate stress and anxiety, so placing plants and flowers in your office is a great way to combat these things. Read More about Happy and Healthy in the New Year »
There's no better way to make yourself feel special than to go ahead and indulge in a flower or plant gift---for yourself. That's right, Al's Florist said it: You should be buying the flowers or plants you want for yourself. It's an important act of self-care, at least as important as springing for that massage or getting your toes done. And there are so many proven health benefits to having greens or flowers in the home that you really can't go wrong. Read More about Treat Your Sweet Self To Succulents »

It may be a challenge to find purple flowers, but they're out there, and we look forward to the growing appetite for this intriguing palette. Read More about Orchids Bring In Pantone’s Ultra Violet »
