The one magical thing about the holiday season is all the brightly colored holiday decorations from ornaments on the trees and beautiful wreaths and so many various holiday themes. Flowers make another the perfect accent to any holiday theme!
No matter what your color them is in your holiday décor, there are flowers that can accent it perfectly. One year my holiday theme was the Dallas Cowboys. The tree was decked in deep blues and silver with a Dallas Cowboys helmet for the topper. It was easy to find flowers that accented my dinning room table and mantle perfectly, bring the theme easily throughout our entire home including the vase of flowers in the guest bathroom.
No matter how extreme or how traditional your holiday theme is, there are the perfect flower combination to bring that them alive and throughout your entire home.

Kwanzaa is an African American inspired celebration that embraces African Americans values and traditions of African families. It is a week long celebration that honors the African heritage and culture. Kwanzaa starts on December 26th and goes until January 1st.
Created by Maulana Kerenga, Kwanzaa began back in 1966. Karenga’s goal was to give Blacks an alternative to the existing holiday with an opportunity to celebrate their history and cultures.
Kwanzaa celebrates what Kerenga called the 7 principals of Kwanzaa:
• Collective Work and Responsibility
• Cooperative Economics
Part of the celebration is gathering as families and friends at various homes, partaking in great food and conversation. Often times, everyone brings a dish or gift for the host. Flowers are always a welcomed gift.
If you have friends or family that celebrate Kwanzaa, sending a gift of a colorful arrangement of flowers is a great way to show your friends or loved ones just how valued you consider them.
Sadly enough, not all loved ones can gather for the holidays. Some families are spread so far apart that when the holiday times come around, they have found other avenues to share some sort of normalcy in holiday traditions. One of those is drawing name for gift exchange. Rather then passing a hat that most families would do over eggnog or hot cider the previous year, families separated by the miles count on the Internet and the good old postal system to “draw names”.
Once the names are drawn, each purchases a gift for the name they received. However, with distance also come a similar distance in familiarity with what the others may need or want for the holidays. Children for the most part are simple to gift during the holidays – the latest fad toy, video games, etc. Adults however can pose more of a challenge. Gift exchange over the miles in turn can become impersonal with gifts of gift cards or trinkets that collect dust over time and discarded. If you are in a long distance gift exchange the challenges it poses can be easily lightened and made personal by a gift of a holiday flower arrangement or a holiday gift basket. Flowers are always a welcomed gift in any home. They bring joy and smiles to all. They can be easily personalized from those things that do not change in time, such as favorite color, birth flower, or even favorite types of flowers. Gift baskets can incorporate your loved ones favorite snacks, fruits, or other gourmet items. You can add flowers, a green plant, stuffed animal, and more to them. Don’t let the distance turn your holiday into impersonal trinkets. Give a gift that goes straight to the heart – a gift from Brant Florist.
More times then not, grandparents have “everything” and when it comes to holidays, making it difficult to decide on what to get them during the holidays. Christmas time, grandparents are gifting their grandchildren, and most good little boys and girls love to return that generosity. A great way to do that is to help your child pick out the perfect flower arrangement or gift basket to send their grandparents. That takes care of the gift for the grandparents for all your children making it very cost effective.
