Blossom Flower Shops is looking ahead to March 21, when they tell us spring starts. It may be a bit later for us than that---we can't imagine our gardens suddenly bursting into action, for one---but there's absolutely no reason we can't convince ourselves that it's spring inside our home and work spaces. And how do we do that? With flowers and plants. Or flowering plants. Read More about Blossom Along With Us This Spring »
We call them get well flowers, but Blossom Flower Shops thinks it would be more apt to consider them "health promoters." In study after study, floral arrangements and potted plants have been shown to have serious benefits on people who are under the weather or in the hospital. The impacts range from helping to lower blood pressure and decrease the reliance on pain medication to oxygenating an enclosed space and boosting morale. People who receive flowers when they're ailing are more likely to be in contact with friends and family, and we all know that maintaining healthy relationships certainly impacts our well being.

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.

On November 11, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson made the first official statement about Veterans Day, which was then known as "Armistice Day" because it commemorated the resolution of WWI a year earlier. In it he described the U.S. as being "filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service" and called the victory an opportunity for America "to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations."
Since then, Veterans Day has been a time to shower our vets with honor and gratitude, a thing we at Blossom Flower Shops know a little about. And yes, we do have the perfect piece for Veterans Day. Read More about The Perfect Piece for Veterans Day »
