If you're anything like us here at Blossom Flower Shops, you appreciate a good sneak peek. Whether it's into the next wave of movies, music, fashion, books or flowers, it's always exciting to get the early scoop on what's trending for the next season. A good look at what loveliness is coming around the bend serves as inspiration and gets our creative juices flowing. That's definitely the case when it comes to looking ahead to summer's floral designs. While many of the flowers that we love in spring are also showcased in summer, it's how they are showcased that makes the difference. Read More about A Glimpse At Summer’s Flowers
We plan ahead for Memorial Day. It's a three-day weekend. There are parades and commemorative celebrations. We may take the opportunity to host a special event---a backyard barbecue or a more poignant dinner at home with close friends and family. It's one of those times that we think of as marking the beginning of summer, an occasion that we here at Blossom Flower Shops think is worth celebrating. So while we certainly remember and honor those who died in service to country, we also embrace the people we love, celebrating the long weekend together and looking ahead to a happy, sunny summer.

Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away. It is one of the most anticipated spring celebrations, especially for moms. It is the one day where every mom is a queen, and she can revel in all the pampering her family gives her. It is also a day on which it is customary to shower mothers with gifts -- especially floral gifts. At Blossom Flower Shops, we believe in perpetuating the time-honored tradition of giving mothers flowers on their special day. Read More about A Garden Of Flowers For Mom
It's nearly May, and we're looking ahead to summer, which brings with it the end of the school year. A host of parties, ceremonies and---most important of all---proms will be happening in the area, with our local seniors and their friends and family celebrating the end of the high school journey and the start of a new one. Here at Blossom Flower Shops, we believe it's never too early to begin thinking about the flowers you'll need to properly celebrate or adorn your favorite graduates. This is a high-flower time, and we're here for it. Read More about Fresh, Modern Flowers For Prom
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.
