This week, we here at The Flower Bucket are showing our gratitude to one of our favorite design team members, Angelus. She may be behind the scenes, but she’s very much at the fore of our operation, and one of the hardest working people we know.
“At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.”
When you first saw her, you swooned. When you married her, you pledged to be hers forever. You became a poet, a romantic, simply by falling in love. This year for your anniversary, call on your inner poet once more to bring some creativity to your celebration. Write her a love letter telling her what she means to you, take her to a restaurant she’s been dying to try, or leave a special gift for her to discover. The floral artists at The Flower Bucket are full of ideas that will make your anniversary as special as the day you became husband and wife. Since June is the most popular month for weddings and anniversaries, we’re creating some truly dynamic bouquets that will bring out the poet in you.
In honor of Mother’s Day, The Flower Bucket is shining the spotlight on one of our very own floral designers and moms. She shares her experience and insight when it comes to both raising kids and choosing flowers.

What do you love most about working with flowers? Every floral arrangement
is a piece of art. Every arrangement is different.
On March 8, we here at The Flower Bucket join over 100 countries across the world to celebrate International Women’s Day, which we’ve been doing since 1909. On this day, we honor the achievements of our most influential women—the visionaries, mentors, activists and teachers who have advanced women’s causes over the course of a year. 2018’s theme is #PressForProgress, and the focus is on gender parity. IWD is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the most influential woman in your life through flowers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
