Every day, most of us follow a practice routine. We have habits and appointments, rituals and schedules. Our days are sectioned out in day planners and organizers - but did you ever wish you could just break free for a few hours? August 27th gives us a great opportunity to do something "just because" - no rhyme, no reason, and no agenda. Whether you want to play hookey from work, indulge in a guilty pleasure at your favorite restaurant, or to surprise someone with flowers, Just Because Day is your chance. The team at Blossom Flower Shops thinks we all need a little more spontaneity in our lives!
Giving flowers is often tied to a specific event, milestone or occasion - so have an arrangement delivered "just because" is a gorgeous way to not only change things up a bit but to bring a smile to someone's face - even your own! Read More about Delivering Flowers Just Because »

When you think of flowers and romance, you may think of your anniversary or Valentine's Day. But did you know that the entire month of August is dedicated to romance as well? What an awesome opportunity to surprise the one you love with an expression of devotion and passion, when they least expect it. Blossom Flower Shops are here to help you to celebrate your love all year round, with flowers and gifts sure to make their heart flutter. But for National Romance Month, we thought we would share a few facts about romance that you may find interesting.
Will You Marry Me? The very first diamond engagement ring was reportedly given by the Archduke Maximillian of Austria to his intended, Mary of Burgundy. The year was 1477.

For instance, only one in five men will drop to one knee to pop the question; and less than 5% of prospective brides or grooms seek the approval of their parents before getting engaged.

Many of us have sisters who have been our best friends throughout our lives. And many others have best friends that are practically family. Both of these special relationships are celebrated on August 6, when National Friendship Day and National Sisters Day coincide. At Blossom Flower Shops, we have the beautiful floral designs and bouquets that will let her know how special she is to you.
Did You Know? Yellow roses are the official flower of friendship, and are the perfect way to honor your sister or best friend. Either send a bouquet of yellow roses, or use them as a vivid starting point for a custom mixed arrangement. Read More about Cultivate Bonds of Sisterhood & Friendship »
