'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 »
Call this "In Praise of the Poinsettia: Office Edition."
We know what you're thinking - what more do I need to know about bringing a poinsettia to the office? We here at Blossom Flower Shops are here to show you how to embellish on this tried-and-true holiday plant. First things first: poinsettias are tropicals, so yes, they enjoy sunlight. Take stock of your workplace and assess where you might put a fresh batch of red beauties so that they'll last through the season. Read More about Perfect Poinsettia Looks for Your Office »
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.

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 »
