Celebrate All The Mamas

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. Read More about Celebrate All The Mamas »

Flowers As An Act Of Self-Care

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. Read More about Flowers As An Act Of Self-Care »

Add A Pop Of Pantone’s Color Of The Year

Every year, Pantone announces its Color of the Year to much anticipation, and every year people the design world over have a lot to say about it. The company arrives at their decision after an international meeting-of-the-color-minds, and the selection is meant to embody the current state of affairs in the world - the cultural zeitgeist, if you will. So what does 2018's color, Ultra Violet, say about the world right now? We here at Ah Sam Florist note that it's an intriguing, jewel-toned hue, with a bit of a mystical quality. We look forward to bringing it into our homes this year. Read More about Add A Pop Of Pantone’s Color Of The Year »

Gifts of Flowers for the Host

Think we're post-Emily Post? Think again. It's still very much considered polite to offer a host or hostess a vase of fresh blooms in thanks for their courtesy. There's some debate about whether or gifts of flowers should arrive with you or be sent afterward, with an accompanying note. We at Ah Sam Florist feel that's up to you to decide, but make no mistake - thanking your host with flowers is never out of style. In fact, it's a ritual we'd like to see revived a bit more than it actually is, as so many designs lend themselves to making a treasured gift that anyone would love to receive.

Colorful Gifts for Veterans Day

Veterans Day is just around the corner, a time when we honor our military veterans. Since 1919, in some form or another, we've reserved this occasion to reflect on our veterans' service and celebrated their commitment to the country with parades and festivals. It is likely you'll catch one of these events around San Mateo this November 11, paying your respects to the vets who participate and enjoying the patriotism and pride that accompanies occasions like these (as well as the fresh air!). But a personal gesture honoring a family member or friend who served is always appropriate too, and we at Ah Sam Florist have just the thing for that.
