When you're revamping your house for spring, cleaning out the closets and throwing away the things that no longer serve you, don't forget that front step area. We here at Al's Florist know that even during our Florida winters, we're still decorating the front of our homes with plants and other decor, so the area can take a beating. It's time to sweep away the fallen leaves and refresh those planter pots with something more reminiscent of spring. Read More about Refresh Your Front Step For Spring
Easter is just a week away, and we here at Al's Florist are thrilled to be steeped in the season's blooms and baskets.

The result is an appealingly fresh gift or piece of decor for spring. Read More about Flowering Plants For Easter
Al's Florist is grateful for spring's glorious haul of flowers, and here's why: they smell divine.
We're used to praising flowers for their visual beauty, but we see the whole flower for what it is---an enticement to all of the senses. And while it's true that not all blooms are created equal when it comes to fragrance, each and every one does have a distinct scent. Even if that scent is just of freshness, it's there, and it will work its magic on you. Read More about A Sunny, Scented Design

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
Of the many occasions there are to give flowers, several stand out to us here at Al's Florist.

They're more than part of a symbolic gesture -- they're memories. Read More about How To Give Flowers So It Really Matters
