Circle the week of May 6 to May 12 on your calendar, its a big deal. This week is reserved for both teacher and nurse appreciation, two fields overwhelmingly dominated by women. Who are these women? The kind who educate, nurture, protect and otherwise empower the rest of us. Blossom Flower Shops encourages you to honor these special people all year long, but this week in particular is a good reminder to make your appreciation and admiration concrete.

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

Baskets always symbolize comfort and plenty, ever since ancient farmers used them to carry the spring's seedlings to church to be blessed. Flowers look lovely when they bloom from baskets. Read More about How We Do Easter Baskets

Giving yourself flowers is a crucial part of self-care---or so we here at Blossom Flower Shops think. The kindness you show yourself manifests in different ways; it could be in the form of a pedicure, a massage, a night out with friends. A last-minute ticket to Bermuda or splurging on one of those weighted blankets to give yourself the additional gift of nourishing sleep. But flowers have proven health benefits, impacting everything from cognition and memory to the literal air you're breathing. So why not give yourself them?
