Halloween is here again – crisp air, falling leaves, a full moon and early darkness all lend to the atmosphere we look forward to all year round. While Halloween has several rumored origins, the most accepted view is that it began as a pagan Celtic harvest festival, with activities centered around rituals to keep evil spirits away from the crops. The annual tradition was adopted by the Christian church and changed to “All Hallows Eve”, a celebration meant to honor the spirits of dead martyrs and saints. As the holiday evolved, it became more of a secular celebration revolving around costumes and food, meant to “ridicule” the heavy subject.
These days, Halloween is largely characterized by children in fun and adorable costumes, walking around neighborhoods and shopping malls hoping for candy. Although some adults like to invoke the creepier aspect, for most, it is simply a fun family tradition. And Blossom Flowers is not one to miss the fun!
Whether to a special child, or a kid-at-heart adult, our Jack O’ Lantern gift makes for a great delivery right to their front door! Send to a colleague, a favorite nephew away at college, or to your best friend – anyone who could use a cheery smile and a pumpkin full of chocolate!
Of course, not everyone celebrates Halloween, at least not in the traditional ways. Fall arrangements are a great way to let someone know you are thinking of them, while decorating their home or office with the warm colors and cozy blooms associated with this time of year. Halloween party or not, this bouquet of lilies, hydrangea, mums and orange tulips, accented with fall foliage, will make any space worthy of a fall festival.
No matter the season or occasion, Blossom Flower Shops have the perfect floral choice to set the mood. Whether you visit the shop in Yonkers or White Plains, you can be assured that we will work with you to create an arrangement that will deliver!
