What's better than Valentine's Day? The day before, Galentine's Day, 24 hours devoted entirely to celebrating the friendship between women. This genius holiday was contrived in 2010 on an episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation and basically entails getting your besties together for either a long lunch or making it a true ladies night. But the possibilities are endless for how you can celebrate your favorite females, or so we think here at Blossom Flower Shops.
One thing's for sure, you'll definitely want to add some flowers to the occasion, whether you have them sent to your girls or use them to decorate the table at your swank, ladies-only dinner party. Read More about A Garden Inspired Arrangement For Galentine’s Day »

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.

The weather outside may be frightful, but is there anyone on the planet who doesn't appreciate a first snowfall? Bare branches lined in white, banks and drifts undulating across yards and streets. It's always a gorgeous sight, inspiring serenity and even awe. We here at Blossom Flower Shops think the impact has a lot to do with color; there's nothing like winter's sparkling, glittering, tranquil whites. Read More about Winter’s Snow-Inspired Flowers »
Here at Blossom Flower Shops, we're really feeling one of International Floral Distributors floral design picks for 2018. Don't get us wrong, IFD's other predictions are exciting, too, but there's just something about Positively Posh that makes us look ahead to the new year.
So what's the look? Think layers of delicate petals issuing one after the other, like a ruffle. Imagine a wash of pale hues like pinks and grays, and the unexpected contrast of violet. Dreamy, lavish and romantic, that's Positively Posh. Read More about Floral Trends For The New Year »

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!)

'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 »
