Secret Santa Gifts They’ll Swoon Over

By Kevin Kegan on December 1, 2017 in Christmas. 0 Comments

Do you love Secret Santa as much as we here at Blossom Flower Shops do? We're hoping so, because this holiday gift swap - part of a family of such games, along with Yankee Swap, White Elephant, even Conspiracy Santa - is a whole bunch of fun. And if you aren't familiar with how it works, allow us to give you a primer. Basically, your group comes together to draw names. Whoever you draw is the person you'll be buying a (usually price-capped) gift for. The fun part? You won't tell them you're the giver. Well, not if you can help it (and you should!)

Growing Together and Giving Back

By Kevin Kegan on November 24, 2017 in Donations!, Plants. 0 Comments

'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

Green Gifts for the Host

By Kevin Kegan on October 30, 2017 in Plants, Uncategorized. 0 Comments

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.

The Perfect Piece for Veterans Day

By Kevin Kegan on October 27, 2017 in Uncategorized, Veterans Day. 0 Comments

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.

Sweet Gestures on Sweetest Day

By Kevin Kegan on October 7, 2017 in Sweetest Day. 0 Comments

The origins of holidays and observances are often very different than you might expect. But in the case of Sweetest Day, its humble beginnings come from one of the very sweetest things you can do  - give candy to someone who is having a rough time. In the early 1900's, a group of candy executives got together and donated approximately 26,000 boxes of chocolates and other sweet treats to widows, orphans, and shut-ins. The publicity stunt was presented as a new yearly event, but cynics noted that it was little more than the companies looking to establish a new holiday which benefited their pocketbooks. Regardless of intentions, the Sweetest Day is still observed over 100 years later, especially in the Midwest and Northeast. However, the modern version entails doing anything nice for someone who may need support and encouragement. Blossom Flowers Shops has the flowers, candy & gift ideas you'll need to lift their spirits.  Read More about Sweet Gestures on Sweetest Day
