Halloween Decor & Designs

The yard may be strung with cobwebs and ghosts, but your Halloween decor doesn't have to be all doom and gloom inside the house as well. Halloween's just as cheerful a holiday as it is a scary one, and its decorations can be both, too. While candles, pumpkins and skeletons will definitely do the trick, fall's flowers come in all the same autumnal colors and don't have to be boxed back up and put away once Halloween night is over. They're also a wonderful antidote to the plastic spiders and ghouls you're decorating with already. Read More about Halloween Decor & Designs »

Sweetest Day Flowers & Gifts Show Kindness

Just over 100 years ago, a tradition began in the Midwest. People began giving out sweets and candies to those who were down and out, or to those who needed some encouragement. They named the day "Sweetest Day", and the movement still exists today. It has now expanded to all kinds of acts of kindness. not just candy. The idea is that if you know someone who is going through a hard time, a sad time, or simply could use a pick-me-up, that on October 21, you do something nice, just to tell them "you're the sweetest, and you deserve nice things to be done for you. " Ah Sam Florist has beautiful bouquets and arrangements that are perfect for Sweetest Day. Who do you know who needs a smile?  Read More about Sweetest Day Flowers & Gifts Show Kindness »

Sending Flowers on Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day, a day set aside to honor the very special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren. This is a wonderful opportunity to teach children about the strength, information and guidance older generations can offer to their families and communities. The founder of the day, Marian McQuade, wanted Grandparents Day to be a family day. She envisioned families enjoying each other in small gatherings, holding family reunions, or participating together in community events. On this day, grandparents are encouraged to share their hopes, dreams, and values; while families can use the opportunity to shower their loved ones with appreciation. If you want to honor the matriarchs and patriarchs in your family, call the floral experts at Ah Sam Florist.  Read More about Sending Flowers on Grandparents Day »
