Super Ladies Deserve Super Flowers

By The Flower Bucket on April 23, 2018 in Flower Gifts, Flowers, National Nurses Day, National Teachers Day. 0 Comments

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.

Mother Nature’s Freshest Blooms For Earth Day

By The Flower Bucket on April 16, 2018 in Earth Day, Flowers. 0 Comments

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?

Bringing A Little Desktop Awareness In Time For Admin Prof Day

By The Flower Bucket on April 9, 2018 in Administrative Professionals Week, Flowers, Holidays. 0 Comments

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.

Baskets Of Flowers For Your Easter

By The Flower Bucket on March 26, 2018 in Easter, Holidays. 0 Comments

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

A Fragrant Bouquet For Springtime

By The Flower Bucket on March 19, 2018 in Flowers, Roses, Spring Flowers. 0 Comments

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

Spring’s Blossoming In Our Shop

By The Flower Bucket on March 12, 2018 in hydrangea, Spring Flowers. 0 Comments

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. Read More about Spring’s Blossoming In Our Shop

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.

IWD is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the most influential woman in your life through flowers. Read More about A Bright Floral Design For International Women’s Day

Go Get You Some Flowers

By The Flower Bucket on February 26, 2018 in Flower Gifts, Flowers. 0 Comments

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. Read More about Go Get You Some Flowers

Flowers That Matter A Whole Bunch

By The Flower Bucket on February 19, 2018 in Floral Design, Flower Gifts. 0 Comments

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. Read More about Flowers That Matter A Whole Bunch
