A Summer Soiree And Its Flowers

So you’re having a dinner party this June. You’ve got the perfect meal planned—maybe some salmon or shellfish. A bright ceviche, a platter full of yummy crudite and a sorbet for dessert. You’ve bought the wine, chilled the glasses and brought out the good linens. The scene has been set, and yet, where are you with flowers?

Ah Sam Flowers believes that you should never let a good party go by without dressing it in a striking centerpiece arrangement. So scooch that lush salad over to the side and keep the center of your table clear. We’ve got just the right floral piece for your summer gathering.

‘Tis The Season For Wedding Flowers

It’s that time again, the month of marriage, anniversaries and overall romantic merriment. More people marry in June than any other time of the year, owing to its general temperate nature. It’s also a great month for flowers, which bloom profusely now, in every color of the rainbow (texture, too).

There are so many events surrounding all of those weddings that call for additional flowers. As a guest, you may want to give them, or as the bride, you may be looking for the perfect centerpiece for your bridal luncheon. That’s where Ah Sam Flowers comes in.

A Lush Bouquet For Your Bestie

They say friendship is when someone knows all about you but likes you anyway. Best friends are those special individuals that know all our quirks and imperfections and still love us unconditionally. Sometimes we just need to take a moment and recognize how important our friends are to us. June 8th is a great time to honor those precious friendships by celebrating Best Friend’s Day. Of course, at Ah Sam Flowers we believe the best way to show your best friend how much your value her is with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

All The Memorial Day Parties

Memorial Day is a time to honor and acknowledge the brave sacrifice so many of our men and women made in service to country. To that end, we come together at parades and ceremonies to remember their courage. We also think of the three-day weekend as a time to celebrate the arrival of summer, which is just around the corner. This is a time when friends and family are together, often outdoors, enjoying potlucks, barbecues and—if we’re lucky—the pool. Ah Sam Flowers recognizes that the flowers we exchange or use to decorate with at this time have a couple of different functions; they must speak to the poignancy of the occasion at hand, but also capture the festive, social spirit.

Celebrate All The Mamas

They say Mother’s Day is like the Superbowl of Flowers, and Ah Sam Florist would agree.

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.

Flowers For Our Caretakers And Educators

It’s a double whammy May 6 through May 12—both Nurses and Teachers Appreciation Week. Ah Sam Florist has a bevy of spring flowers to choose from, but we also think there’s a special kind of design you want to offer to our most special people. These are two fields that are overwhelmingly dominated by women, so we’re thinking of this as a chance to honor and celebrate our Super Ladies—the ones who nurture us, teach us and by and large raise us. For them, only a bright, bountiful arrangement will do.

Afterwards, have a meal that makes liberal use of the garden and go ahead and eat al fresco; celebrating the Earth and promoting conscious living on it is an important aspect of this day.

Administrative Professionals Day Highlights Desktops Everywhere

Desktops can look a little dull after a long winter. They need some brightening up, a nice spring clean and a new plant or flower, if you ask us at Ah Sam Florist. And that’s why we’re here campaigning on behalf of desktops everywhere, just ahead of Administrative Professionals Day (April 25) and at the very moment when we predict most workplaces could use a refresh.

A Palette Cleanser For Spring

While you’re kicking off the season with a deep spring clean of your home, don’t forget that adding some new decor items is just as refreshing as subtracting some. Ah Sam Florist sees a spring clean as a time to rethink how we’ve styled our homes and offices and to remove what no longer serves us from the scene. But new decor items are just as important to our sense of well-being and balance, and that includes flowers and plants.
