The Fourth of July is one of those holidays that evokes many special memories – no matter where in the country you grew up, you likely remember family picnics, local parades, sparklers for the kids, and fireworks that lit up the sky. Once again this month, the entire nation will break out the red, white and blue and celebrate the birth of our nation and the freedoms we enjoy.

At Blossom Flower Shops, we love our Moms as much as you do. That’s why we put so much effort, passion and creativity into designing the beautiful floral designs in our Mother’s Day collection – we are dedicated to showing Moms across the area just how special they are.
In honor of this special day, we asked Carly about the unique mother-daughter teams at Blossom Flower Shops. These ladies work side-by-side every day to bring you the most beautiful bouquets and arrangements in Yonkers and White Plains. Here is just one of our own personal Mother’s Day stories
The concept of Mother’s Day has been around for thousands of years, stretching back to ancient Greece and Rome. Those societies esteemed the matriarchs of the family and were also known to offer flowers as a sign of love and honor. In the 1600’s, Western Europe celebrated “Mothering Sunday”, which was actually a call to return to one’s “mother church”. However, it evolved into a celebration of mothers and their children, who would traditionally pick flowers on the way to church to give to their mothers. It wasn’t until 1908, however, that Mother’s Day appeared in the United States, championed by a woman named Anna Jarvis.
The affiliation between mothers and flowers has persisted through the years. In fact, Mother’s Day is one of the biggest annual holidays in terms of flowers purchased. Of course, Blossom Flower Shops have always embraced the time-honored tradition of giving flowers as gifts; and in observance of Mother’s Day, we have assembled a collection of luxurious and elegant flowers for Mom which we are confident she will love. Here are a few of our favorite Mother’s Day arrangements, because one thing hasn’t changed over the years – our Moms deserve the very best.
Prom season is here, and after the prom-posal is out of the way, it is time to prepare! Gowns, tuxes, limos, and dinners all need to be lined up – and of course, you’ll need flowers. Wearable flowers are a cherished tradition for proms and spring formals, and we couldn’t imagine the big dance without them. Corsage, boutonniere, or even a floral crown – all the formal florals you need are right here at Blossom Flower Shops.
