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.

Fall Floral Details & Accents

fall floral details

Every season has its own style – colors, textures, and elements that are classic and iconic. This season is no different, with beautiful colors and fall floral details instantly recognizable as emblematic of this time of year. The floral designers at The Flower Bucket are inspired by all of the traditional fall themes, adding our own creative twist to create gorgeous designs unlike any others in San Antonio.

Fall Colors: There is nothing quite like fall’s color palette. Rich berry burgundies, burnt oranges, and fiery wine tones, and golden yellows set landscapes afire, and invoke warm and inviting thoughts when included in home decor.

Fall Textures: Whether blue thistle, hypericum berries, seed pods, or cattails, fall gives us the opportunity to add diverse details that add texture, depth and interest. These details take an ordinary bouquet, and turn it into a fall spectacular.

Fall Flowers: Sunflowers, asters and mums all bloom and thrive well into the autumn months, and therefore are popular choices for seasonal bouquets. Roses, carnations, and lilies in orange and red are excellent additions.

As we head into the new season and anticipate some of our favorite holidays, fall floral designs will transform the ambiance of interiors and express your gratitude to you hostess. You may also wish to have a centerpiece designed with all of the fall floral details that will be perfect for fall gatherings and family dinners.

The Flower Bucket provides beautiful designs all year round, but we especially love the inviting designs of the fall season. Browse our selection or call us today for yours.

Easter is a holiday filled with customs and traditions. We participate in Easter egg hunts, dress our kids up in their Sunday best, and eat a lot of chocolate bunnies – 90 million of them, experts tell us. Some of us will wake up early for a sunrise service, while others will sleep in until it is time to look for their Easter basket. No matter our family traditions or religious persuasions, Easter Sunday is a special time highlighting special celebrations. Make it even more so with Easter flowers from The Flower Bucket of San Antonio.

Floral Design and Artistry

floral design

Flowers have been integrated into our society and traditions for millennia. In Ancient Egypt, the lotus flower was included in observations of both life and death; while in Greece, carnations were woven into coronation crowns. In Victorian times, lovers engaged in secret communication utilizing flowers, each of which had their own meaning. In fact, it was from these forbidden messages that many of our contemporary floral meanings were derived.

In modern times, floral design has become an art form studied by professionals and appreciated by all. floral design

On February 28, National Floral Design Day recognizes the natural beauty of flowers and gives accolades to the expert floral designers who turn them into living works of art.  Flowers give artisans a rich medium in which to work. By applying a knowledge of color, composition, and space, they create professional designs that exhibit the classic aspects of design.

Expert floral designers are usually inspired by one main flower as the starting point of an arrangement – it may have a unique shape, be placed in a prominent position, or have an eye-catching color. The arrangement is designed around the focal bloom, achieving balance with complementary colors, or natural elements such as curved leaves, wispy grasses or linear stalks of bamboo. The addition of these secondary details add texture, depth, and interest to the arrangement; as does a container selected to accent the ambiance of the design.
