Kind Gestures on Sweetest Day

sweetest day

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.  Continue reading

“What a bargain grandchildren are! I give them my loose change, and they give me a million dollars’ worth of pleasure.” – Gene Perret

On September 10, we have the opportunity to celebrate one of the most special relationships on earth – the one which exists between a grandparent and their grandchildren. Many have tried to explain the reason why this bond is so strong, but few have come close to truly expressing the connection.

Flowers for Mother’s Day

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day in the United States had a rocky road on the way to becoming one of our most celebrated holidays. A woman named Anna Jarvis petitioned the U.S. Congress for several years to get them to adopt her idea and institute a national holiday, and she was finally successful in 1908. However, several decades later she had a change of heart. The very same Ms. Jarvis petitioned Congress to remove the holiday from the calendar, lamenting that people were not celebrating the day in the way she intended. Of course, she was unsuccessful and we’ve been honoring Mom ever since.

Although Mom deserves accolades every day of the year, Mother’s Day affords us a special opportunity to convey all of the love and respect that we feel, The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have created a Mother’s Day floral collection featuring arrangements suitable for every mom, no matter her personal style. Browse the collection and decide – which one is best for your mother? Continue reading

Beautiful Floral Gifts for Administrative Professionals

According to the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), there are approximately 4 million professionals working as support personnel in companies nationwide. Studies have shown that this essential workforce is truly the backbone of any business – a fact easily verified when they need to take some time off! While executives and bosses may be more visible, the administrative personnel are the ones that keep the day-to-day operations of the company running smoothly, and they are often great sources of information and knowledge. Given all their quiet influence, Administrative Professionals Week is an opportunity to thank them that should not be missed – and The Flower Bucket is ready, with a varied collection of gifts perfect for the day.

Easter is a holiday filled with customs and traditions.

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.
