Halloween and Dia de los Muertos fall close together each year and are often lumped together. Let's explore some of the unique qualities of each of these holidays.

Halloween, a night of spookiness and playful frights, is all about embracing the eerie and letting your imagination run wild. At Gillespie Florists, we've crafted a bewitching collection of blooms that capture the spirit of Halloween. Create sinister centerpieces or boo-tiful bouquets for everyday decor or a costume party.

Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is a beautiful Mexican tradition where families come together to honor their loved ones who have passed away. It's a celebration of life, love, and remembrance. Create an ofrenda (altar) that truly honors your ancestors with our breathtaking blooms.

At Gillespie Florists, we're here to help you celebrate both of these wonderful occasions with our stunning floral arrangements. Whether you're looking to add a touch of spookiness to your Halloween or a heartfelt tribute to your Dia de los Muertos festivities, our florists are ready to create something truly magical for you.

Halloween is almost here! To me, it's the most wonderful time of the year...till Christmas! And what better way to celebrate a day of dressing up as your favorite super hero, TV character, or what have you than to decorate with spooky stuff, eat candy, and create scary fun bouquets? That's how we roll here at Gillespie Florists!

Know what else we love about Halloween? Trick-or-Treaters! And because we enjoy costumes, candy, Trick-or-Treaters and more, we have a special treat for you! 




Are your little Trick or Treaters anxious to get the Halloween ball rolling? You know they are going to wake up bright and early on Saturday with their costumes on and ready to seek out candy! Bring everyone over to our shop for a few treats of our own as we host a few Trick or Treat hours in our seventh year and running...

Treat or Flower!

Except it's Treat AND Flower! We send off our costumed Trick-or-Treaters in style with candy AND a free flower! Is there a more fabulous way to start the evening than with a fresh flower to go along with the impending harvest of sweet treats?
