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. Started in 1958, this day came into being when Patricia Bays Haroski realized her boss (and father) was performing many small tasks to make work easier for his employees but that his efforts were going unnoticed. 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.

Meditating outdoors, in a garden or park, is even better because the connection with nature will nourish your mind, body and soul together at one time.
