They say Mother’s Day is like the Superbowl of Flowers, and Ah Sam Florist would agree. It seems everyone is dying to get their hands on—and give—the most beautiful and meaningful bouquet of blossoms that ever was. Mother’s Day arrives in one of the best seasons for flowers; spring’s bounty is bright, bold, feminine, romantic and enticing. It’s not hard to find something gorgeous to offer your mom. The only question is how you’ll narrow it down to just one floral gift.
International Women’s Day has been a big deal since 1909, and thereafter been celebrated around the world. Designed to honor the achievements and advance the goals of women, IWD is an excellent day to show appreciation and support for the women in your life. It’s become de riguer to send gifts of flowers or chocolate in an effort to do just that, and we here at Ah Sam Florist have just the floral design in mind for that.
Along with getting yourself a massage and making that pedicure appointment, we here at Ah Sam Flowers think treating yourself to a bundle of fresh blooms should be an important part of your self-care routine. Flowers have been shown to increase cognition and memory. They are proven mood-boosters, and have significant impacts on everything from blood pressure to medication use in hospitalized patients. It’s time to give yourself the healthy gift of flowers.
There are occasions that call for flowers and then there are occasions that are made better by flowers. It’s in these latter instances that offering a flower gift could be a gesture that dates back centuries, and when you participate in it, you’re essentially connecting to a ritual that has been practiced by many and established as having a powerful effect.
We here at Ah Sam Florist believe that the flowers we give to an expectant couple or a couple who has welcomed a new baby are especially meaningful.
If you feel you’re stuck in a romance rut, February’s the month for you. Designated as “‘Creative Romance Month,” February is the perfect time to shower your sweetie with affection and attention beyond Valentine’s Day. It’s also an invitation to do it in a highly-personal, dare-we-say innovative way, and Ah Sam Florist is here to help with the flower gift portion of that.
Valentine’s Day comes with its own kind of pressure: the pressure to give flowers and then the pressure to give the right kind. While it’s true you can’t go wrong with a vase of long-stemmed red roses, they can often seem a little rote and obligatory. Offering a custom piece is the antidote to that feeling, both on your part and on the part of the recipient. Here at Ah Sam Florist we love having the opportunity to work with you in creating a gorgeous original design that will really enthrall your special someone.
November 13th – Valentine’s Eve – has gotten an upgrade, and it’s no longer just the evening preceding the most romantic holiday all year. Thanks to a 2010 episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, we’ve turned the night before into the “girls night” before, reserving the 13th for celebrating the love between friends. Galentine’s Day is here, and it’s here to stay.
If this is the first you’ve heard of this welcome variant, we at Ah Sam Florist say why not gather your gals and have a dinner party?
As you’re writing your resolutions list for the New Year, don’t leave off making sure that your loved ones feel that love all year long. There are a lot of ways to achieve this goal (no gym membership required), but we here at Ah Sam Florist want to bring one more to your attention: send them flowers for a year.
Commit yourself to sending a new bouquet each month and ensure that your special someone always feels special. This is the kind of gift that allows you to be creative; you can pick flowers based on the seasons, switch up colors, send something free-form and romantic one month, a tidier, more modern arrangement the next.
