Go Get You Some Flowers

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.

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.

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.

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.

Magical Arrangements for the Office

How does your workplace like to decorate for the holidays? Poinsettias and wreaths? The tried-and-true Christmas tree you pull out from the back and dust off, year after year?

One of the great joys of the holidays, or so we think here at The Flower Bucket, is rediscovering the decor we love and cherish all over again. That special ornament or candy dish we forgot for a whole year is loved anew. And it’s the same with decorating our workplace; everyone can have fun decking the halls (or their desks) and hanging ornaments on the tree, finding all of those decor items they put up last year. We think a bountiful display of fresh blooms really adds to that spirit.
