As we peek ahead to 2018 (after all, it is just around the corner), we here at The Flower Bucket can't help but pick up a little design inspo from the folks over at International Floral Distributors, who recently released their floral trend report.
Of the four styles identified, we're highlighting just one, "Incarnation of Earth's Element." Yes, it's a mouthful, but believe us, this floral look is all about organic minimalism. Read More about 2018’s Modern Nature Trend
We got you something good this year, a present from The Flower Bucket to you, and it's our Holiday Gift Guide.
We're proud to unveil the seasonal designs we've been working on. They feature winter's bold blooms, vivid greens and natural accents. We've built in plenty of texture and interest, along with the fragrance of pine and fir. We've got pine cones and ornaments and a little glitz and glitter - basically everything you might want for everyone on your "nice" list. Read More about Our Gift Guide For The Holidays
Secret Santa has become the best way to make sure that everyone at work or in a group of friends gets a gift during the holidays, without breaking the bank. And it's a fun way to gather together for the season, which is why it's so often included in a holiday party. The premise is simple: participants blind-draw a name and whoever they get is the person they'll be shopping for that year. They can't reveal their identity to the giftee, nor will they know the identity of the person buying for them.
The Flower Bucket recognizes that this is a unique gift-giving circumstance. After all, you may not know much about the person you're buying for, let alone their personal tastes and preferences. That's where we come in. Read More about Win Secret Santa With Flowers
This November 28, reach deep into your pockets and give. We're not talking about spending on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, no; Tuesday's where it's at.

All year long, we offer a means to benefit some of the San Antonio area's most deserving institutions. Read More about Giving Tuesday’s Many Gifts
How does your workplace like to decorate for the holidays? Poinsettias and wreaths? The tried-and-true Christmas tree you pull out from the back and dust off, year after year?
One of the great joys of the holidays, or so we think here at The Flower Bucket, is rediscovering the decor we love and cherish all over again. That special ornament or candy dish we forgot for a whole year is loved anew. And it's the same with decorating our workplace; everyone can have fun decking the halls (or their desks) and hanging ornaments on the tree, finding all of those decor items they put up last year. We think a bountiful display of fresh blooms really adds to that spirit. Read More about Magical Arrangements for the Office
One of the most recognizable symbols of Thanksgiving is the cornucopia, a horn-shaped container usually filled with fruit. The cornucopia has been around since antiquity, where it appeared in myths and later in art. Meant to represent the abundance, this emblem was brought to the table and displayed as a sign that the harvest had been fruitful that year.
Today, you'll see all manner of cornucopia horns - usually baskets - in stores, just waiting for you to stuff them full with seasonal decor. But at The Flower Bucket, we have a better idea. We think the best cornucopias are the ones overflowing with fresh flowers. Read More about A Classic Cornucopia for Thanskgiving
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. Read More about Custom Florals for Holiday Hosts
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. Read More about Handsome Hues for Veterans Day
November's favorite flower explodes onto our doorsteps and walkways as early as September, such is our excitement over the arrival of Fall. Along with Pumpkin Spice Latte and the hope (cross-your-fingers) that we'll get to don sweaters soon, mums are a special Fall treat. We're no different here at The Flower Bucket in how fully we embrace the season, and we've got the mum arrangements to prove it. Read More about Mixing it up with Mums
