Mother's Day in the United States had a rocky road on the way to becoming one of our most celebrated holidays. A woman named Anna Jarvis petitioned the U.S. Congress for several years to get them to adopt her idea and institute a national holiday, and she was finally successful in 1908. However, several decades later she had a change of heart. The very same Ms. Jarvis petitioned Congress to remove the holiday from the calendar, lamenting that people were not celebrating the day in the way she intended. Of course, she was unsuccessful and we've been honoring Mom ever since.
Although Mom deserves accolades every day of the year, Mother's Day affords us a special opportunity to convey all of the love and respect that we feel, The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have created a Mother's Day floral collection featuring arrangements suitable for every mom, no matter her personal style.

Easter is a holiday filled with customs and traditions.

No matter our family traditions or religious persuasions, Easter Sunday is a special time highlighting special celebrations. Make it even more so with Easter flowers from The Flower Bucket of San Antonio. Read More about Celebrate with Bright Easter Flowers

There is nothing quite like the mutual affection, companionship, and love that dogs add to our lives. It is estimated that up to 80 million dogs are kept as pets in the United States, but that number can be misleading. The reality of millions of strays, overpopulation due to ill-advised breeding, and abandonment creates adverse conditions for many dogs. Shelters are full to capacity, and unfortunately, approximately 1.4 million dogs are euthanized annually. Although some are old, sick or injured, most are otherwise healthy animals, simply too much for the shelter to handle. It is a heartbreaking situation for all involved.
National Puppy Day was established in 2007, and organizers hope to garner attention for the plight of shelter puppies in need of rescue. The movement is adamantly against the concept of for-profit "puppy mills", and instead urge that prospective pet parents go straight to the shelter to meet their new family member.
