Custom Florals for Holiday Hosts

If you’re spending Thanksgiving at someone else’s table, as many of us will this holiday, it’s time to think about what you may be bringing to contribute. And we at The Flower Bucket don’t mean your signature stuffing; we’re talking about flowers. Specifically, in the form of a host gift.

It’s customary in the U.S. and across the globe to offer a gift to your magnanimous host. It’s a classic, classy gesture that expresses your gratitude for their time and energy, and a vivid reminder of your relationship to them.

Handsome Hues for Veterans Day

Between Halloween and Thanksgiving there’s Veterans Day, an occasion we’ve celebrated in one form or another since 1919, when it was called “Armistice Day” and devoted to remembering the end of WWI the year before. Today, it’s a time to honor our U.S. military veterans for their incredible service to country. And while our San Antonio community comes together to celebrate these heroes, we may also want to personally extend our gratitude to our deserving family and friends through a gift like flowers.

Given that the overwhelming majority of vets are male, The Flower Bucket suggests that you pick an arrangement rich with handsome hues.

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

Fall Floral Details & Accents

Every season has its own style – colors, textures, and elements that are classic and iconic. This season is no different, with beautiful colors and fall floral details instantly recognizable as emblematic of this time of year. The floral designers at The Flower Bucket are inspired by all of the traditional fall themes, adding our own creative twist to create gorgeous designs unlike any others in San Antonio.

Fall Colors: There is nothing quite like fall’s color palette. Rich berry burgundies, burnt oranges, and fiery wine tones, and golden yellows set landscapes afire, and invoke warm and inviting thoughts when included in home decor.

Fall Textures: Whether blue thistle, hypericum berries, seed pods, or cattails, fall gives us the opportunity to add diverse details that add texture, depth and interest. These details take an ordinary bouquet, and turn it into a fall spectacular.

Fall Flowers: Sunflowers, asters and mums all bloom and thrive well into the autumn months, and therefore are popular choices for seasonal bouquets. Roses, carnations, and lilies in orange and red are excellent additions.

As we head into the new season and anticipate some of our favorite holidays, fall floral designs will transform the ambiance of interiors and express your gratitude to you hostess. You may also wish to have a centerpiece designed with all of the fall floral details that will be perfect for fall gatherings and family dinners.

The Flower Bucket provides beautiful designs all year round, but we especially love the inviting designs of the fall season. Browse our selection or call us today for yours.
