Grace Your Table With Fall’s Flowers

Now that fall is settling in, we know you’re eager to start celebrating this gorgeous season. The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have created a beautiful collection of fall centerpieces to grace your table, plus, we have some design tips to help you make the most of your piece:

  • Use floral foam soaked in a flower food and water mix. Allow the foam to become saturated, then remove immediately before it can disintegrate.
  • Add greenery and foliage next, spacing evenly and leaving plenty of space so that you can see your floral foam between the pieces of foliage.
  • Next, distribute your blooms evenly among the greenery. Be sure stems are cut short, at an angle, and are cleaned from excessive foliage.
  • Finally, view your design from all sides to ensure fullness and evenness from every angle.

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.

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.
