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 »
Blossom Flower Shops is looking forward to the year of purple - or should we say reign, since it's the traditional color of nobility. Ever since color company Pantone announced their pick for Color of the Year 2018, we've been thinking about how to capture their choice - Ultra Violet - in flower form. Intriguing, cosmic, majestic, purple is one of those colors that can inject a lot of drama into your space. Read More about How To Do Pantone’s 2018 Color Of The Year »
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.

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. Read More about The Perfect Piece for Veterans Day »

Interesting Trivia: Housewarming gifts are so named because, in the days before electricity, a family moving into a new home would receive armloads of firewood from friends and neighbors, in order to keep their house warm through the winter. Read More about Flowers & Plants for Housewarming Gifts »
