Bosses Day is celebrated nationally on the 16th of every October with gifts, cards and flowers sent to bosses who strive to make a difference in the workplace daily. This occasion was started in 1958 when a Cleveland State Farm employee, Patricia Bays Haroski, noticed how hard her boss worked behind the scenes without recognition. Since he was also her father, she chose his birthday as the day in which this celebration should be observed and submitted it to Congress. Four years later, the governor of Ohio was pleased to enact this day officially. Today, the professionals at Blossom Flower Shops are glad to honor bosses who support and encourage their employees with beautiful floral arrangements, plants and gift baskets.

When we stop and think about all the ways we indulge in self-care, we can usually come up with more things we don’t do than things we already take care of. Maybe you already have a great exercise routine, take mental breaks throughout the day, or indulge in a weekly bubble bath to clear your mind. The floral experts at Blossom Flower Shops recommend also surrounding yourself with lush natural greens that will boost your immune system, provide clean oxygen and increase your general well-being.

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.

One of the best things about spring is the chance to rethink how both your indoor and outdoor spaces look. Along with a deep clean, we're also busy imagining how we want to plant our garden beds this year, or strategizing how to best organize our kitchens. We're bagging up old clothes for donation and making room in the closets, sweeping away the last of winter and in general giving everything in our homes a refresh. Here at Blossom Flower Shops, we believe that while it's great to pare down and prune out, it's just as important to bring some new things into our homes. Namely, plants.

'Tis the season for the giving of gifts to others, something we here at Blossom Flower Shops know a thing or two about. But while we spend all year helping our customers find that perfect arrangement for their loved ones or special events - and assuring that arrangement is top-notch in quality and delivery - we also feel it's important to give back to our community. It's fun to be such a crucial part of the gift-giving process; it's just as fun to be the givers ourselves. Read More about Growing Together and Giving Back

So you're going somewhere else for Thanksgiving. You're in good company. Nearly 50 million people traveled 50 miles or more to break bread at someone else's table last Thanksgiving in the U.S. And while you may be transporting an item for the table if you're driving - or just yourself if you're flying - one thing's for sure: a host or hostess gift is in order.
At Blossom Flower Shops, we're not going to talk you down from the instinct to bring or send flowers. Certainly, a beautiful display of blooms makes a fresh and vital point about your gratitude. On the other hand, in these cold months, something a little more green (and a little more accommodating to all tastes and preferences) might be just the thing.

It is estimated that we spend between 25% and 35% of love's waking hours working. With such a large portion of our existence involving the workplace, it is easy to see why a great boss can make such a huge difference. In 1958, Chicago State Farm Insurance employee Patricia Bays Haroski was so inspired by her boss that she petitioned the government to set aside October 16 (her dad's birthday) as a day to recognize supervisors and employers who were doing a great job; in 1962, Illinois governor Otto Kerner made it official.
At Blossom Flower Shops, we help you are year round in recognizing amazing people from Yonkers to White Plains. On National Boss's Day, we are here to help you to thank those leaders who make work a great place to be. Read More about Boss’s Day Plants & Gifts
Experts estimate that this year, nearly 50 million people will relocate to a new residence. That means that many more people will have new neighbors as well! If someone new recently settled into your neighborhood, you may want to make them feel at home with a friendly smile and a beautiful gift from Blossom Flower Shops.
Interesting Trivia: Housewarming gifts are so named because, in the days before electricity, a family moving into a new home would receive armloads of firewood from friends and neighbors, in order to keep their house warm through the winter. Read More about Flowers & Plants for Housewarming Gifts
