Baskets Of Flowers For Your Easter

At The Flower Bucket we believe in filling a basket with the best things, namely chocolate and flowers. And while our sweet tooth might argue, we’re going to say we prefer the latter a bit more. That’s because flowers look absolutely divine when you present them in a basket, which is one of Easter’s most recognizable emblems. The Easter basket evolved from ancient times, when farmers carried their seedlings in baskets to be blessed. They signify comfort and plenty, and when you combine bright spring blooms with that, you get something truly beautiful.

A Fragrant Bouquet For Springtime

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.

Spring’s Blossoming In Our Shop

The Flower Bucket is lucky; we get to experience spring in a different way (and earlier) than the average person—we have flowers. Our seasonal blooms start arriving in all of their glory ahead of spring’s actual due date, and we get to begin designing in advance. Welcoming these flowers into our store is one of the best parts of the season, especially seeing as they are full of rich meaning and symbolism.

A Bright Floral Design For International Women’s Day

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.

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.

Flowers That Matter A Whole Bunch

The Flower Bucket knows that not every flower-giving occasion is created equal. There’s a big difference in pinning a corsage onto your prom date and buying your sweetheart her tenth year of red roses at Valentine’s Day. The former is an example of when a flower exchange takes a moment and makes it into a memory, and these are the occasions we love most. The intimate personal exchanges that happen between people with flowers is one of our favorite reasons to give them.

Flowers Get Creative This Month

Were you aware that February is Creative Romance Month? That’s its official designation, and it makes sense, seeing as how it’s also responsible for bringing us the biggest love holiday of all.

But what does it mean to be creative in your romance? Well, we here at  The Flower Bucket will leave the date-planning up to you, but when it comes to flowers, it means thinking outside of the box and springing for something a little more unexpected, but no less beautiful.

Give Our Designers A Creative Challenge

One of the things that makes us happiest here at The Flower Bucket is a custom order, and the more the merrier, in our view. Valentine’s Day is of course the perfect time to put something special together for that special someone, but we believe that a custom design fits for any occasion. Sometimes even the wealth of available arrangements just won’t do, and what you’re trying to express is better said through a distinctive, one-of-a-kind piece.

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.
