While we look forward to celebrating the holidays with friends and family members each year, the season can often be a difficult one for those who have lost loved ones and are now remembering or still grieving their passing. For those who are missing family and friends this season, consider participating in the Wreaths Across America wreath-laying ceremony. Begun in Arlington National Cemetery to remember fallen heroes in the month of December, you can do the same in your community by simply choosing the perfect wreath to commemorate your loved one's place in your life. The floral designers at Al's Florist have a collection of beautiful wreaths for your choose for your own wreath-laying ceremony. Read More about Wreath-Laying Ceremonies »

There are few games associated with the holiday season, but Secret Santa - and its countless variations - is one of them. This group gift swap is usually carried off in a workplace setting or among friends and involves randomly-assigned gifters and giftees. The person giving the gift must keep their identity a secret from the recipient, and that's where the fun begins.
At Al's Florist, we love a good gift exchange, and for Secret Santa, we've got some delicious gift options. Read More about Secret Santa Gifts That Delight »
