The Flower Bucket knows, we're still in the midst of spring. But there's no reason not to peek ahead at what summer has in store for us, flower-wise. After all, we get to fantasize about lazy days by the pool and grilling out with our friends---why can't we dream about the bright, bold florals coming our way during the hottest season? This is a chance to dress up our tables (even the ones on the porch, patio or by the pool) with flowers that capture the spicy vibe of summer, and we're here for it.

There are many ways to mark the occasion of Memorial Day. We attend parades and ceremonies devoted to remembering the brave men and women who gave their lives in service to country. The Flower Bucket joins our community in collectively reflecting on our local heroes and in embracing those still with us. We also know this is a time where friends and family gather together to welcome summer over the three-day weekend, seizing the opportunity to be with the ones they love over a poignant but also festive three days. Given the nature of the occasion, we think the floral designs that we place on our tables for our barbecues and pool parties should be both spirited and respectful.

One of the biggest dances in anyone's life is prom, and here in The Flower Bucket community, the time for that particular dance is rapidly approaching. Soon enough there will be limos unloading dozens upon dozens of juniors and seniors dressed to the nines, ready for their close ups and flaunting their wearable flowers. Fortunately, we've got a crop of such wearables, everything from sophisticated boutonnieres to ultra-romantic corsages. Read More about Perfect Corsages For Prom
It's an important month for the women in our lives---or as we here at The Flower Bucket like to call them, "super ladies." After all, we've got Mother's Day, National Nurses Day, National Teachers Day and the entire week of May 6 through 12 officially devoted to appreciating the latter two. In these female dominated fields, we've got mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, friends, colleagues, neighbors. In other words, the women we honor in May are wearing many hats, educating, inspiring, protecting and nurturing the rest of us. They do their best to empower us, and we should definitely do that right back. One way to honor the super ladies in our lives is to give them flowers. Lots and lots of flowers.

Earth Day has orbited back around again, and here at The Flower Bucket, we're thrilled that our San Antonio community has found so many ways to promote environmental awareness, from celebrations to plantings to even a plogging party (picking up trash while jogging). We truly know how to join in on the global effort to preserve our beautiful planet, and to have a good time doing it. To that end, we think Earth Day is also the perfect opportunity to gather together with friends and family and have an outdoor dinner. What better way to cap off a day of helping the planet be a better, healthier, happier place than a dinner party with the people you love?

The Flower Bucket is here to call attention to two things: first, the fact that it's Administrative Professionals Day on April 25---which is just around the corner, so get ready to honor, fete and otherwise thank the people who do so much for you at work---and second, the fact that after a long winter, our desktops are looking sad. They're in need of some help.
What better time for a little "Desktop Awareness" than now? We're here to remedy the predicament of sorry, lifeless desks everywhere by showing just how uplifting flowers and plants can be when we bring them to our work surfaces.

As you're cleaning out your closets and reorganizing the kitchen this spring, don't forget to add flowers to the mix. Why? Well, not only do they connect you to nature, they help oxygenate the air in your home and to remove it of toxins. In essence, bringing something green and living into your space is one of the best things you can do to help reset and refresh your home for the warmer months.

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. Read More about Baskets Of Flowers For Your Easter
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. Read More about A Fragrant Bouquet For Springtime
