Flowers That Matter A Whole Bunch

The Flower Bucket knows that not every flower-giving occasion is created equal. There’s a big difference in pinning a corsage onto your prom date and buying your sweetheart her tenth year of red roses at Valentine’s Day. The former is an example of when a flower exchange takes a moment and makes it into a memory, and these are the occasions we love most. The intimate personal exchanges that happen between people with flowers is one of our favorite reasons to give them.

Color Up Your Home With Pantone’s Color Of The Year

When Pantone® announced in early December 2018 that their chosen color for 2018 would be Ultra Violet, it’s hard to imagine that there weren’t a lot of collective sighs and head shaking among designers throughout the world. Our floral designers at The Flower Bucket in San Antonio love our creative challenges, and this is an exciting one because of the intensity of the color.

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.

Mixing it up with Mums

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.  Continue reading

Kind Gestures on Sweetest Day

sweetest day

Sweetest Day is a day set aside for kind gestures and sweet acts of kindness. Although not the most well-known of holidays throughout the United States, the observance has been popular in the Midwest and the Northeast for over 100 years.

Sweetest Day began in Cleveland in the early 1900’s, as a day when local candy companies would give out thousands of boxes of chocolates to the underprivileged, orphaned and shut-in. The idea caught on thanks to broad media coverage, and within 5 years, New York State also adopted the concept. Since we love the idea of giving gifts for no other reason than to make people feel valued, happy and loved, The Flower Bucket has put together a Sweetest Day collection sure to make your loved ones smile.  Continue reading

Celebrate Just Because Day

Just Because Day

The alarm clock rings and we are off and running. From the moment we open our eyes until our head hits the pillow, most of us have full days, every day. We have errands to complete, appointments to keep and responsibilities to fulfill.

It’s true, our lives are overflowing with lots of things that we have to do, which is why August 27 offers us a welcome change from our routine. Just Because Day beckons us to set aside those things we must do, and instead spend a few hours doing things we truly want to do.  The team at The Flower Bucket has experienced first hand how meaningful it is when someone receives flowers “just because”, and we would love to conspire with you to surprise the people in your life who deserve some unexpected joy.  Continue reading
