A Healthy, Helpful Basket For Father’s Day

June 17th is Father’s Day this year, and to celebrate we’ve dug up a bit of history about this renowned day. While there are a few stories about when and where Father’s Day began, one of the most well-known hails from Spokane, Washington. A woman named Sonora Smart Dodd realized that there was much fuss being made over mothers, but nothing being done to celebrate fathers. She had a high regard for her own father, a Civil War veteran who raised his children alone after his wife died in child birth with their sixth child. Due to Sonora’s efforts, the first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane on June 19, 1910. Here at Crouch Florist we are eager to help you keep tradition alive with an abundance of gifts and ideas for your dad this Father’s Day.

The Weekend We’ve Been Waiting For

Memorial Day is first and foremost an occasion to remember and to celebrate the legacy of those soldiers who sacrificed their lives in service to country. But it’s also a time when we get together with friends and family to take advantage of an additional “weekend” day on what is thought of as the cusp of summer. We long to be outside, so we host our parties and dinners there. We want to soak in the pool, and it’s often warm enough to do so. We want to enjoy a barbecue that goes way past sundown because, frankly, we can. No matter how you’re planning to spend Memorial Day, flowers are in order. Crouch Florist has the perfect ones.
