August Holidays Call for a Celebration


Anytime is the right time to send flowers! In fact, there are dozens of reasons (if you need more than one) to send flowers to someone special. For instance, did you know that August is Hug Month, Black Business Month and Romance Awareness Month?

If you need more ideas for sending flowers to the object of your affections, there are other holidays in August that are just perfect to do so.

They include: 

Single Working Women’s Week Aug. 2-8 (for the time-strapped woman), National Resurrect Romance Week Aug. 9-15 is a good time to bring back the romance, and Be Kind to Humankind Week Aug.  25-31 (know someone who needs a little pick-me-up)?

And lets not forget Happiness Happens Day Aug. 8 (just for the happiness of it), Eden Florist 28th Anniversary! Aug. 13 (that’s right, 28 GREAT YEARS) shared with National Left Handers Day Aug. 13 (even though only about 13% of the world population are lefties, I bet you know at least one left hander and they even have a national holiday all their own).

V-J Day Aug. 14  is the perfect time to honor a Veteran or your favorite service man or woman with flowers, Best Friends Day Aug. 15 (a great way to show how much you care), National Personal Chef’s Days Aug.18-20 (dinner, flowers and …?), Poets Day Aug. 21 (flowers have been the subject of prose since the dawn of time – so give a poet flowers to enjoy) , Kiss and Make Up Day Aug. 25 (if you or someone you know is in the Doghouse, flowers could be just the ticket out), Women’s Equality Day Aug.  26 (celebrate the women in your life with flowers) and Global Forgiveness Day Aug. 27 (is there someone in your part of the world that needs to be forgiven)?

Florascope for Leo July 23 – August 22


 

"Florascope for Leo July 23 - August 22"Leo ~ July 23 – August 22

Leo is known for its dominant, spontaneous and creative nature.  Leos are warmhearted, loving and generous extroverts.  Their self-confidence exudes from their every pore; they are big thinkers who love the limelight.

This fire sign has a mighty roar and a heart of gold.

Leo’s colors are vibrant yellows and orange and their birthstone is the ruby.

Leos love roses and sunflowers and exotic flowers.

Leos love attention grabbing bouquets, the bolder the better.  A cut flower bouquet of lush, brightly colored flowers warm a Leo’s heart. Appeal to the romantic side of Leo with a lush bouquet of sunset roses.

Be sure to order flowers for your favorite Leo from Eden Florist!

National Make Someone Smile Week Begins Today


“The man who can smile when things go wrong has thought of someone else he can blame it on.” ~ Robert Bloch

Did you know that today begins National Make Someone Smile WEEK (July 20-16? That’s right. And all across the country thousands of florists are delivering flowers to people in hospitals, nursing homes, and foster care centers to people who might not otherwise get any flowers.

Started in 2000 by Teleflora, it has become “the floral industry’s most successful charitable program. Last year’s program spanned 144 cities throughout the United States and Canada, more than 2,000 florists donated their time. Teleflora’s program delivered more than 35,000 bouquets to those most in need of a smile.”

Eden Florist will be participating in Make Someone Smile Week by dropping off flowers to my local library, favorite grocery store clerk and more.

Check out the article “How do you Make Someone Smile? Send Flowers, of course!”   It’s my list of  21 people and places to send a smile and get on in return.  and be sure to visit: EdenFlorist.com to send flowers to someone who needs a lift.

And when you give a smile, it is almost impossible not to get one in return! And wouldn’t it be nice to be “blamed” for doing something good (for a change)? *SMILE

So keep smiling! And be sure to send someone flowers to make them smile too!  It could be a total stranger or someone you love. Its up to you.

Feel free to leave your LIST of people you would like to make smile in the comments section below. If we get enough response, I may even have a contest and give free flowers to the writer AND the person she/he wishes to send flowers. How about that to make someone smile?

Happy Make Someone Smile Week!

We Specialize in DOGHOUSE REPAIRS


"We Specialize in DOGHOUSE REPAIRS - doghouse logoEver since the dawn of time, people (mostly men) have been in the doghouse.  Imagine how much trouble Adam would have been in if he had not eaten that apple!  He might have had to spend the night (or several) in the dogasaurus cave! But that’s another story….

For as long as I can remember, people (mostly men) have been coming into my florist and saying “Help, I’m in the doghouse.”  In fact, I can remember the very first time a customer said that to me, I replied, “No problem, we specialize in doghouse repairs.”

And so began what would one day become a national holiday. Now Get out of the Doghouse DAy is not really a celebration.  I mean how could it be?  Its more of an observance. Because most of the time people (mostly men) are looking for something to “smooth things over.”  While flowers can certainly help get back in the intended’s good graces, it is easier to be forgiven when the offender is remorseful, sincere and he (or she) ads a dash of romance.

Now, I’m not suggesting you BEG Forgiveness (unless the situation warrants it), I am suggesting that bringing home a bouquet and being open to talking it out will give you a better chance of “getting out of the doghouse.”

In 2002 my staff and I conducted a survey and a majority of women said that although they preferred to talk about their troubles, they also thought flowers were a romantic way to ask for forgiveness. For men the answer was much simpler. They prefer make-up sex. Maybe adding a petals around the house and on the bed would satisfy both!

So next time you are in the doghouse think of flowers as a start… flowers suggest romance and let’s face it, romance is what most people (mostly women) really want.

So next time you are in the doghouse, bring home a bouquet and a willingness to talk things out and you could find yourself out of the doghouse and back in the Main House.

And remember, Eden Florist specializes in “doghouse repairs.”
