We plan ahead for Memorial Day. It's a three-day weekend. There are parades and commemorative celebrations. We may take the opportunity to host a special event---a backyard barbecue or a more poignant dinner at home with close friends and family. It's one of those times that we think of as marking the beginning of summer, an occasion that we here at Blossom Flower Shops think is worth celebrating. So while we certainly remember and honor those who died in service to country, we also embrace the people we love, celebrating the long weekend together and looking ahead to a happy, sunny summer.

Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away. It is one of the most anticipated spring celebrations, especially for moms. It is the one day where every mom is a queen, and she can revel in all the pampering her family gives her. It is also a day on which it is customary to shower mothers with gifts -- especially floral gifts. At Blossom Flower Shops, we believe in perpetuating the time-honored tradition of giving mothers flowers on their special day. Read More about A Garden Of Flowers For Mom »
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 »
Blossom Flower Shops is taking a stand against sad desks everywhere by embarking on an initiative we're calling "Desktop Awareness." We're shining a light on the sorry predicament of the many work place surfaces across the country that have come out of this winter (if it's over) looking dismal, disorganized or totally bereft. We're calling upon you and your team to take stock of the state of your work desks and tables, just ahead of Administrative Professionals Day (April 25), and urging you to consider bringing some life to them with new flowers and plants.

Blossom Flower Shops has baskets galore, but we're not exactly filling them with Peeps and chocolate bunnies. No, we're packing them with flowers and especially flowering plants, using one of Easter's most emblematic vessels to our own glorious ends.
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 »

Do you love Secret Santa as much as we here at Blossom Flower Shops do? We're hoping so, because this holiday gift swap - part of a family of such games, along with Yankee Swap, White Elephant, even Conspiracy Santa - is a whole bunch of fun. And if you aren't familiar with how it works, allow us to give you a primer. Basically, your group comes together to draw names. Whoever you draw is the person you'll be buying a (usually price-capped) gift for. The fun part? You won't tell them you're the giver. Well, not if you can help it (and you should!)
