Flowers That Matter A Whole Bunch

The Flower Bucket knows that not every flower-giving occasion is created equal. There’s a big difference in pinning a corsage onto your prom date and buying your sweetheart her tenth year of red roses at Valentine’s Day. The former is an example of when a flower exchange takes a moment and makes it into a memory, and these are the occasions we love most. The intimate personal exchanges that happen between people with flowers is one of our favorite reasons to give them.

Flowers Get Creative This Month

Were you aware that February is Creative Romance Month? That’s its official designation, and it makes sense, seeing as how it’s also responsible for bringing us the biggest love holiday of all.

But what does it mean to be creative in your romance? Well, we here at  The Flower Bucket will leave the date-planning up to you, but when it comes to flowers, it means thinking outside of the box and springing for something a little more unexpected, but no less beautiful.

Give Our Designers A Creative Challenge

One of the things that makes us happiest here at The Flower Bucket is a custom order, and the more the merrier, in our view. Valentine’s Day is of course the perfect time to put something special together for that special someone, but we believe that a custom design fits for any occasion. Sometimes even the wealth of available arrangements just won’t do, and what you’re trying to express is better said through a distinctive, one-of-a-kind piece.

Color Up Your Home With Pantone’s Color Of The Year

When Pantone® announced in early December 2018 that their chosen color for 2018 would be Ultra Violet, it’s hard to imagine that there weren’t a lot of collective sighs and head shaking among designers throughout the world. Our floral designers at The Flower Bucket in San Antonio love our creative challenges, and this is an exciting one because of the intensity of the color.

Your Besties Deserve Roses This Galentine’s Day

Yes, it’s Galentine’s Day, the one day of the year devoted to the love you have for the women in your life, and you can thank a television show for giving it to you. In 2010 on an episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation the idea for a day spent celebrating female friendships was born when main character Leslie Knope rounded up her ladies, took them to lunch, gave them gifts and proclaimed February 13 “Galentine’s . . . only the best day of the year.”

Here at The Flower Bucket, we’ve got an idea about what you can give your girl gang to show them how much you care.

Special Flowers To Give For The Whole Year

Here at The Flower Bucket, we’re intimately familiar with all of the ways people give flowers to each other. We’ve seen all of the occasions, all of the approaches, and made all of the arrangements. We’re continually surprised by the imagination and creativity that comes into play when we exchange flowers, both on our part and on our clients’. One concept we love is giving flowers for a year, an approach that makes a lot of sense at the New Year.

Cheer Them Up With Bright Flowers

There’s nothing worse than coming down with something in winter, otherwise known as cold and flu season. Whatever you catch feels like it can drag on for months, and coupled with the fact that it’s colder and bleaker outside, can definitely induce the winter blues.

We here at The Flower Bucket have the perfect cure all, and science supports us. In fact, a number of studies show that flowers help us maintain a positive outlook as well as strong relationships with family and friends. They’ve been associated with lower blood pressure and less use of pain medication if a patient has them in his or her hospital room.

Winter’s Natural Beauty Expressed In Flowers

Sometimes, it can feel a little like winter is never going to end, even if we don’t experience the worst of it here in San Antonio. We yearn for spring’s bright days and bountiful blooms, and the thought of it alone immediately perks us up, pulling us out of the winter blues. The Flower Bucket knows exactly how to bring that feeling into our homes during winter, no matter how long it stretches. The answer is through flowers, but not just any flowers.

2018’s Modern Nature Trend

As we peek ahead to 2018 (after all, it is just around the corner), we here at The Flower Bucket can’t help but pick up a little design inspo from the folks over at International Floral Distributors, who recently released their floral trend report.

Of the four styles identified, we’re highlighting just one, “Incarnation of Earth’s Element.” Yes, it’s a mouthful, but believe us, this floral look is all about organic minimalism.
