Get ready, it's the Earth's birthday on April 22.
Well, not exactly a birthday per se, but we here at Blossom Flower Shops feel like it's in the same spirit. Earth Day is an annual global celebration of our planet, an opportunity to raise environmental awareness, a chance to educate ourselves on how to best preserve and support life on Earth, and a moment to appreciate its abundant natural resources and riches. And when we say riches, we mean flowers and plants. What better way to honor the Earth---especially after you've spent the day at a recycling drive, clean-up or environmental fair---than to gather with friends and family and have a gorgeous dinner? So for all intents and purposes, this feels like the biggest birthday ever, and everyone's invited. Read More about A Blooming Tribute To Earth Day »

Here at Blossom Flower Shops we see IWD as a unique opportunity to celebrate the most courageous and inspiring women in your life, and one way to do that is through a gift of flowers.

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. Since then there have been many traditions surrounding engagements, but many have been falling by the wayside in recent years.
