Circle the week of May 6 to May 12 on your calendar, its a big deal. This week is reserved for both teacher and nurse appreciation, two fields overwhelmingly dominated by women. Who are these women? The kind who educate, nurture, protect and otherwise empower the rest of us. Blossom Flower Shops encourages you to honor these special people all year long, but this week in particular is a good reminder to make your appreciation and admiration concrete.

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.

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.

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
Let's be honest, one of the most enchanting things about flowers is their fragrance. And while it's true that not all flowers are created equal when it comes to their top notes, every flower exudes a distinct scent. Flowers are like people, no two smell alike. The variation is, well, intoxicating. Blossom Flower Shops thinks of spring as a prime occasion to create designs that celebrate the fragrance of flowers.

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
This March 8, you'll want to join the USA---and much of the rest of the world---in honoring the achievements of women young and old. International Women's Day has been on the calendar since 1909, a historic chunk of time for an occasion that has been, in all ways, so ahead of its time. Here at Blossom Flower Shops we see IWD as a unique opportunity to celebrate the most courageous and inspiring women in your life, and one way to do that is through a gift of flowers.

Giving yourself flowers is a crucial part of self-care---or so we here at Blossom Flower Shops think. The kindness you show yourself manifests in different ways; it could be in the form of a pedicure, a massage, a night out with friends. A last-minute ticket to Bermuda or splurging on one of those weighted blankets to give yourself the additional gift of nourishing sleep. But flowers have proven health benefits, impacting everything from cognition and memory to the literal air you're breathing. So why not give yourself them?

Flowers are always meaningful, you could say, and we at Blossom Flower Shops wouldn't argue with you. But there's a spectrum that goes all the way from flowers you feel obliged to buy to those flowers you give that the occasion for which springs from the unique relationship you have with the recipient. These aren't just "any" occasion flowers, they are the flowers that you give when you are acknowledging a day, a moment or an event that is super special to you and that other person. These are flowers that really matter. Read More about The Occasions Where Flowers Matter Most
