According to the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), there are approximately 4 million professionals working as support personnel in companies nationwide. Studies have shown that this essential workforce is truly the backbone of any business – a fact easily verified when they need to take some time off! While executives and bosses may be more visible, the administrative personnel are the ones that keep the day-to-day operations of the company running smoothly, and they are often great sources of information and knowledge. Given all their quiet influence, Administrative Professionals Week is an opportunity to thank them that should not be missed – and The Flower Bucket is ready, with a varied collection of gifts perfect for the day.
Flowers have been integrated into our society and traditions for millennia. In Ancient Egypt, the lotus flower was included in observations of both life and death; while in Greece, carnations were woven into coronation crowns. In Victorian times, lovers engaged in secret communication utilizing flowers, each of which had their own meaning. In fact, it was from these forbidden messages that many of our contemporary floral meanings were derived.
On February 28, National Floral Design Day recognizes the natural beauty of flowers and gives accolades to the expert floral designers who turn them into living works of art. Flowers give artisans a rich medium in which to work. By applying a knowledge of color, composition, and space, they create professional designs that exhibit the classic aspects of design.
Expert floral designers are usually inspired by one main flower as the starting point of an arrangement – it may have a unique shape, be placed in a prominent position, or have an eye-catching color. The arrangement is designed around the focal bloom, achieving balance with complementary colors, or natural elements such as curved leaves, wispy grasses or linear stalks of bamboo. The addition of these secondary details add texture, depth, and interest to the arrangement; as does a container selected to accent the ambiance of the design.
