Christmas Wreaths for Veterans

The holiday season is filled with joy, merry hearts and glad tidings, but for the families of fallen veterans, it can also be a time of great sadness. They become even more aware of the absence of their loved one as the once-a-year traditions approach. For these individuals, we suggest participating in a wreath-laying ceremony like Wreaths Across America. This ceremony of placing flowers or Christmas wreaths for veterans on their grave sites commenced at Arlington National Cemetery and is now observed across the U.S. and abroad. Find a ceremony like this in your community or begin your own as a way of updating your holiday traditions and paying tribute to our fallen heroes. The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have designed a beautiful collection of holiday wreaths and flowers just for such occasions.

Grace Your Table With Fall’s Flowers

Now that fall is settling in, we know you’re eager to start celebrating this gorgeous season. The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have created a beautiful collection of fall centerpieces to grace your table, plus, we have some design tips to help you make the most of your piece:

  • Use floral foam soaked in a flower food and water mix. Allow the foam to become saturated, then remove immediately before it can disintegrate.
  • Add greenery and foliage next, spacing evenly and leaving plenty of space so that you can see your floral foam between the pieces of foliage.
  • Next, distribute your blooms evenly among the greenery. Be sure stems are cut short, at an angle, and are cleaned from excessive foliage.
  • Finally, view your design from all sides to ensure fullness and evenness from every angle.

Green Gifts For Your Great Boss

National Bosses Day is an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the hard-working bosses who make our work lives a little easier every day.

She created Bosses Day on October 16th, her father’s birthday, to give employees an opportunity to reflect on all their bosses do for them all year long. The Flower Bucket is pleased to offer a wide selection of gifts, plants and flowers for you to choose for your boss on this Bosses Day.
