National Boss Day

3 Reasons To Gift Flowers For National Boss Day

Peace
There have always been special qualities that nature has possessed. For instance, the tranquility one finds in a green and vibrant garden under the golden sun, as they hear the sweet silence of nature among the music of birds. Or the magic one feels as they behold a colorfully painted butterfly fluttering its wings as it perches upon beautiful flowers in a garden. Nature can offer a therapeutic effect. The peaceful nature of a flower is something to treasure, a truly priceless gift one can give to another.

As a business leader, one must make several decisions and sort out several details. Like anyone’s position, one finds themselves stressed more times than others or taken by the tasks ahead of them. Offer your boss a lovely arrangement of vibrant flowers to lift their spirits. Every act of kindness makes an impact.

Affirmation and Encouragement
As each of us works hard every day, we desire our work to be recognized and to feel appreciated. We appreciate feeling accomplished. Share your care and kindness by offering your boss affirmation in their efforts through a beautiful bouquet. This is a great way to boost morale and provide one with extra encouragement to press forward.

Thanksgiving (USA)

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

Now that you have your lovely flowers for the holiday season, you would like to preserve their beauty for as long as possible. We have provided some fresh flower care tips to help. If you are giving flowers to friends or family, feel free to share this page with them so that they will be able to care for their flowers soon after their delivery.

First things first
Most flowers are delivered with a plastic covering. Remove all plastic to all your flowers to breathe. Next, if your flowers are already in a vase or you have just placed them in a vase, refill the vase with fresh water. Your flowers will love the hydration.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
It is best to avoid placing your flower in areas of extreme temperatures: windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These can cause wilting or dry out your flowers. Instead, place your flowers somewhere where they will be in cooler and more controlled conditions.

It is always good to prevent the possibility of ethylene gas reducing the life of your flowers. This can often come from placing flowers near fruit or cigarette smoke.

Maintaining your flower’s beautiful presentation
As your beautiful flowers are on display, check up on them and tend to them periodically over a series of days.

  • For vase arrangements, keep your vase filled with fresh water to provide them with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, it is good to also provide them with hydration. We suggest daily fresh water hydration.
  • Anytime the water begins to become cloudy, change out the water. You will need to clean your vase with soap and water, rinse thoroughly, and then fill your vase back up with fresh water. Using soapy water rather than only rinsing can help remove bacteria that could cause your flowers to die more quickly.
  • Remove any strongly wilted contents: wilting leaves or stems. This will help you maintain a fresher and neater look.
  • Cut your stems at an angle using a sharp knife. We recommend cutting them one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. This will allow your flowers to hydrate and absorb the water properly. Using scissors to cut the stems is not recommended, as scissors can crush the stems and hinder the flower’s ability to drink water.

Christmas

How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

Once you have received your flowers for Christmas, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
Remove the plastic that may have been wrapping your flowers. Once the plastic wrapping is removed, your flowers will be able to breathe. Next, fill a vase with fresh water for your flowers.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Periodically tend to your flowers to help preserve their beauty.

  • For vase arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we recommend providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.
  • For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.
