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. We yearn for spring’s bright days and bountiful blooms, and the thought of it alone immediately perks us up, pulling us out of the winter blues. 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.
We’re proud to unveil the seasonal designs we’ve been working on. They feature winter’s bold blooms, vivid greens and natural accents. We’ve built in plenty of texture and interest, along with the fragrance of pine and fir. We’ve got pine cones and ornaments and a little glitz and glitter – basically everything you might want for everyone on your “nice” list.
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.
One of the most recognizable symbols of Thanksgiving is the cornucopia, a horn-shaped container usually filled with fruit. The cornucopia has been around since antiquity, where it appeared in myths and later in art. Meant to represent the abundance, this emblem was brought to the table and displayed as a sign that the harvest had been fruitful that year.
Today, you’ll see all manner of cornucopia horns – usually baskets – in stores, just waiting for you to stuff them full with seasonal decor. But at The Flower Bucket, we have a better idea. We think the best cornucopias are the ones overflowing with fresh flowers.
Between Halloween and Thanksgiving there’s Veterans Day, an occasion we’ve celebrated in one form or another since 1919, when it was called “Armistice Day” and devoted to remembering the end of WWI the year before. Today, it’s a time to honor our U.S. military veterans for their incredible service to country. And while our San Antonio community comes together to celebrate these heroes, we may also want to personally extend our gratitude to our deserving family and friends through a gift like flowers.
Given that the overwhelming majority of vets are male, The Flower Bucket suggests that you pick an arrangement rich with handsome hues.
Fall is a wonderful excuse to revive your home with fresh plants and flowers. There’s so much spirited Halloween and harvest decor available, and that’s the case for blooms, too. Arrangements run the gamut from country baskets with rustic florals to sleek black-and-white stunners, all of them intended to warm up your home (and scare up some fun) for the season.
This October at The Flower Bucket, we’re conjuring up some romance with a variety of florals and greens that will help dress up your Halloween scene.
Sweetest Day is a day set aside for kind gestures and sweet acts of kindness. Although not the most well-known of holidays throughout the United States, the observance has been popular in the Midwest and the Northeast for over 100 years.
Sweetest Day began in Cleveland in the early 1900’s, as a day when local candy companies would give out thousands of boxes of chocolates to the underprivileged, orphaned and shut-in. The idea caught on thanks to broad media coverage, and within 5 years, New York State also adopted the concept. Since we love the idea of giving gifts for no other reason than to make people feel valued, happy and loved, The Flower Bucket has put together a Sweetest Day collection sure to make your loved ones smile.
