As you're cleaning out your closets and reorganizing the kitchen this spring, don't forget to add flowers to the mix. Why? Well, not only do they connect you to nature, they help oxygenate the air in your home and to remove it of toxins. In essence, bringing something green and living into your space is one of the best things you can do to help reset and refresh your home for the warmer months.

Here at The Flower Bucket, we're big fans of the aromatic qualities of flowers. Sure, their visual appeal is what most people notice first, but the fragrance a flower brings to the table (and even the ones that don't have a fragrance still "smell" fresh) is working its magic on all who fall within its spell. Never underestimate flowers---they are always doing several things at once to help revive, delight and comfort us. Read More about A Fragrant Bouquet For Springtime
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. Read More about A Bright Floral Design For International Women’s Day
We won't lie, we here at The Flower Bucket think giving yourself a gift of flowers on the regular is a really good idea. But it's not just because we're in the business of getting said flowers in your hands that we say that---it's because to get them there, we have to spend a lot of time around them. Like all day, every day. So not only do we know flowers, but we know their effects. We know they uplift the mood, clear the mind, connect a person with nature, appeal to the senses, inspire with their beauty . . . We could go on. The point is, flowers are good for the soul, and that's why you should be giving them to yourself. Read More about Go Get You Some Flowers

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. Read More about Special Flowers To Give For The Whole Year
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. Read More about Cheer Them Up With Bright Flowers

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.
