What to Do in January

Posted on January 25, 2024 by Flower Works LLC

You’ve already taken down the lights and put away many of the decorations, and now you’re wondering what else you should do in January. While you have downtime to spend, it’s the perfect time to prepare yourself for what the new year will bring.


Here are some things you can do to help get your new year off on the right foot:


  • If you’ve hosted any events at your home over the past year, chances are you’ve accumulated all kinds of things. If you’ve received hostess gifts or other similar items, you may find yourself swimming in abundance. Now is a great time to evaluate what you have and what you need. Whatever you don’t need, consider donating.
  • From candles to beverages, and even inspired centerpieces, you may have gone through different things you like to keep on hand. Items like candles don’t have a shelf life, so you can replace what you’ve used. Additionally, now is a great time to restock your bar and freshen up centerpieces.
  • Move furniture. The holidays are a busy time, and while you might do a deep clean before all the parties and guests, chances are you haven’t had the time to do a serious cleaning since. Moving your furniture is a great way to assess your cleaning needs and complete them.
  • Check decorations. When the next holiday comes, you want to be sure you’re ready to decorate. Now is the perfect time to make sure all your decorations are ready for the next holiday. Get rid of anything that you can’t fix, and fix what you can right away so you don’t spend all your time doing it when you’re decorating.
  • Send out thank you notes. Make sure all the people who are the most important to you know how much you care. Thank you cards are a great way to let people know you’re thinking about them, but for a truly personal gift, a bouquet of flowers or an arrangement is the ultimate thank you.
  • Consider new habits. Drinking more water, getting in more active minutes each week, being sure there’s more green on your plate, and getting better sleep are all excellent habits to start building in the new year. You can also think about other habits that might be less ordinary. Bringing fresh flowers into your home each week or sprucing up drab winter spaces with beautiful house plants are other ways to build new habits.


A post-holiday reset is healthy in a lot of ways. You get the chance to assess what’s most important, and you have the opportunity to leave behind old habits and negative influences. This can let you start the new year out with a clean slate.


Celebrate your new year's feelings with flowers. You can brighten up your space and help to celebrate the small wins you’re seeing every day. Celebrating yourself is a beautiful way to be sure to maintain your positive lifestyle changes. At Flower Works, we love every chance to celebrate accomplishments, and there’s no better way to do that than with flowers. Let us help you pick out the perfect arrangement today to celebrate the new year.
