Pay it Forward with Flowers

daisy-heart-flowers-flower-heart

Almost everybody enjoys receiving gifts.  It’s a natural way to brighten someone’s day when they are feeling down.  What most people don’t realize, giving feels as good, if not better than, receiving.

 The concept of paying it forward is nothing new.  Most of us have even participated.  That’s what National Give Something Away Day is all about.  Gather up those old clothes in your closet and take them to a charity.  Leave a little something in your mailbox for the mail carrier.  It doesn’t have to be anything too fancy.

Hello Sunshine Arrangement

Today is also a great reason to give flowers.  Stop by and see your local florist.  Buy a bouquet (or two) of daisies, roses, or whatever your florist has available.  Now you have everything you need to brighten multiple people’s day!  Walk down the street or visit local businesses, and give them away, one-by-one.  If you have a few left, stop in at a hospital or nursing home and leave them for the employees or residents.   A simple thank you and a pretty bloom can make a big difference.  It’s that easy!

Celebrate National Give Something Away Day by paying it forward with flowers!

5 Reasons to Send Flowers Just Because

We all love receiving flowers, but when is the last time you thought about sending some? A special occasion isn’t necessary to give a gift. Here are five great reasons to send flowers just because!

1. To cheer someone up
When a close friend or family member is going through a difficult season in life, it’s hard to know what to say and do. Sending a beautiful arrangement of flowers is a great way to lift spirits and show your concern.

Be Spontaneous! Send Her Flowers.

Don’t wait for a birthday or special occasion to send your girl flowers. Do it now. Send flowers today. Tomorrow. Anytime!

You’ll Be So Glad You Sent Flowers!

Flowers sent for no reason other than “I was thinking of you today” mean so much more because they are completely unexpected. While any girl is excited to receive an arrangement on a holiday, there is nothing like the surprise of flowers on a random Monday to brighten her day.

It’s So Easy To Start Sparks

With no hassle at all, you can order flowers to be delivered to your lovely lady. Doesn’t matter if she is at work, school or home. There is always a local florist in your town that can make deliveries.

With so few words, you can give her the thrill and rush of passion that comes from knowing you are admired, loved, treasured and appreciated.

Sending Flowers “Just Because” can mean:

  • “I love you.”
  • “I can’t stop thinking about you.”
  • “I want today to be special because you are special.”
  • “You brighten everyday.”
  • “Spending time with you is incredible.”
  • “Just a reminder of how beautiful you are.”
  • “I can’t wait to see you again.”
Stop being so predictable and instead surprise her with flowers today!

Send Yellow Roses To Your BFF

Send Yellow Roses To Your Best Friend Forever!

Did you know yellow roses mean friendship? What better way to say “Congratulations,” “Thinking of you,” or “Feel better soon,” than by sending yellow roses to a friend?

Yellow is the color of summer, sunshine, and lemonade. It is a cheery color and has the power to lift us up on dreary days. Surprise your Best Friend Forever (BFF) today by sending a bouquet of yellow roses. It could be that they need a pick me up, or maybe just because they’re your friend, either way it’s a surprise sure to knock their socks off.

Friends are such important pieces in our life’s puzzle; what would you do without them by your side? They’ve been with you through thick and thin, isn’t it time you show how much you care?

Remember, always always always use a verified, local florist when sending flowers. If you don’t know yours, use FSN’s handy florist finder to find a local flower shop today.

Don’t Let The World End Without Sending Her Flowers

Don't Let The World End Without Sending Her Flowers

Not only is tomorrow the winter solstice, it could be the very last on earth, that is if you believe the ancient Mayan calendar. If tomorrow really is your last day on earth, maybe you should show the one you love just how much she means to you! (Whether it ends or not, it’s a good idea!!)

Just What Did The Mayans Have To Say?

The Mayans were masters of astronomy. They mapped out stars and planets much like their European counterparts. They created and kept three separate, but interlocking calendars. The “long calendar” ends on Dec. 21, 2012. This calendar began on August 11, 3114 B.C. and ends tomorrow. Whether you believe the end is upon us or not, you have to admit it’s a day worth observing.

What does NASA have to say about all of this?

“The world will not end in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.”

No matter what you believe, we will find out the truth tomorrow… Why not send your sweetheart a favorite arrangement of flowers, just in case?

The Healing Powers of Flowers

Believe it or not, flowers have healing powers. Think about it scientifically: color is simply light, and light is energy, that means color = energy! Color is simply light vibrating at different frequencies, and just like food, our bodies need light (the sunshine vitamin) to grow and get better. Colors are known to be therapeutic, this is called, chromotherapy. There are colors for relaxation, spirituality, peace, warmth, energy, happiness. Try sending a monochromatic (one color) bouquet of flowers to your friend feeling under the weather, or mix the colors to create your own chromotherapy arrangement. For a list of colors and their effects, check out this article: Get Well Flowers Have Healing Powers.

Chromotherapy Flower Suggestions:

Yellow: gives feelings of warmth. Uplifting, re-activator, activates memory, purifies the body.
Green: feelings of harmony, self-control, and relaxation. Relieves tension, lowers blood pressure.

Sweets For Your Sweet On Sweetest Day!

 

UFiremen Love Sweetest Day Treats!nlike Valentines Day, which focuses on romance and love, Sweetest Day (October 15th 2011) is all about showing kindness to those around us who deserve a little recognition for being so sweet! For example, I have a friend who’s mother, Mrs. Shirley, always seems to have the perfect something whipped up for all occasions. From chess cakes to pecan pie, it seems she constantly bakes delicious treats and gives away her goodies from the kindness in her heart. There is nothing better than getting a mouth-watering, chocolate marble cake ‘just because.’ Her son is a fire chief so, of course her cookies are famous amongst the firemen in our town. (Speaking of firemen, who better deserve a little recognition for all they do for us daily?) It’s sweet people like Mrs. Shirley who brighten our days and deserve something sweet in return.

Send Sweetest Day Sweets! Chocolate Lovers Gift Basket

Sweetest Day gift baskets from your local florist are the perfect gift for the holiday. Not only are they filled with your favorite sweet snacks, but they can be customized to be even more sweet for your special someone. Have a candy gift basket made for your friend who loves to snack. For chocolate lovers, you could do a candy bar gift basket or a gourmet chocolate gift basket, it just depends on your Sweet’s taste.

Sweetest Day is the day to reward those around us who make our lives a little sweeter. Our moms, dads and grandparents all have specific days for attention, but Sweetest Day was created to show our appreciation to the people in our life who often go unrecognized. It can be the person in the office who makes the (good) coffee in the morning, or your dog groomer who goes the extra mile to make your pup look spectacular. So, on Sweetest Day, October 15th, it’s your turn to return the favor.

For people who are unable to eat sweets, but still deserve the recognition, try sending sugar-free candy gift baskets, or go with Sweetest Day flowers instead!
