As the New Year approaches, we tend to look for ways to make changes to our lives that will refresh and inspire us as we move forward. At The Flower Bucket, we feel flowers are a great way to do this! Here's why:
Flowers help freshen the air. Plants and flowers are natural air purifiers, absorbing toxins and other impurities while emitting life-giving oxygen so you can breathe easier, think clearer and focus better.
Flowers help you de-stress. Place flowers in your work environment to lower stress levels. The green foliage is proven to reduce stress and anxiety, creating a calm environment.
Flowers help you think creatively. Studies show that looking at your favorite colors can have a positive impact on your creative thought. Make sure you have colorful blooms nearby whenever you begin working on a creative project. Read More about Refreshing New Year’s Blooms
The holiday season is filled with joy, merry hearts and glad tidings, but for the families of fallen veterans, it can also be a time of great sadness. They become even more aware of the absence of their loved one as the once-a-year traditions approach. For these individuals, we suggest participating in a wreath-laying ceremony like Wreaths Across America. This ceremony of placing flowers or Christmas wreaths for veterans on their grave sites commenced at Arlington National Cemetery and is now observed across the U.S. and abroad. Find a ceremony like this in your community or begin your own as a way of updating your holiday traditions and paying tribute to our fallen heroes. The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have designed a beautiful collection of holiday wreaths and flowers just for such occasions. Read More about Christmas Wreaths for Veterans

Now that fall is settling in, we know you’re eager to start celebrating this gorgeous season. The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have created a beautiful collection of fall centerpieces to grace your table, plus, we have some design tips to help you make the most of your piece:
Use floral foam soaked in a flower food and water mix. Allow the foam to become saturated, then remove immediately before it can disintegrate.
Add greenery and foliage next, spacing evenly and leaving plenty of space so that you can see your floral foam between the pieces of foliage.
Next, distribute your blooms evenly among the greenery. Be sure stems are cut short, at an angle, and are cleaned from excessive foliage.
Finally, view your design from all sides to ensure fullness and evenness from every angle. Read More about Grace Your Table With Fall’s Flowers

Bring positive energy into your home when you use plenty of texture found in nature. Bold harvest textures that connect you to the natural world have a soothing effect on a room.
Include bold colors in harvest hues that inspire feelings of autumn throughout your home. Creamy beige, rustic oranges, goldenrod, sage and plum all bring a coziness to your home as the cooler temperatures set in.
