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.

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.  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.
