Make Back-to-School Special!
With the return of August comes back-to-school! School is exciting for the learning and social opportunities, but the downside is that our children are leaving the beauty of the out of doors behind them as they begin their time back in the classroom. Not to fret, this is the perfect time to send a little taste of outside in with them!
Flowers are always the perfect gift, whether for a child returning to learn at his teacher’s knee, a professor entering the revered halls of learning with the goal of molding young minds, or an administrator who may need a bright and cheery pick-me-up from the daily grind. Any reason is a good reason to send flowers. They are a beacon of joy and happiness, a reminder of the natural world all around us and they just put smiles on people’s faces!
Make going back-to-school special again. Give flowers!
Back-to-School: The Power of Flowers
It’s Back-To-School Time. With the start of classes, it becomes necessary to stop and consider how to make that first day go as smoothly as possible. You may believe you’ve already got everything you need, but whether a parent, student or teacher, there is most likely one purchase you have yet to make. I’m talking about flowers, of course! Fresh blooms fulfill multiple roles, all of which are perfect for the first day of school!
Best Reasons To Send Flowers In August
The lazy hazy days of summer are in full bloom. August brings 31 days of heat waves and air conditioning worship. Take a refreshing dip into flowers this month and send a tall, cool vase of flowers to someone special:
- Back To School – Do you know a hardworking teacher that deserves some motivation? Potted plants delivered by your florist are a great option for teachers to add some life to their new class.
- Senior Citizens Day (August 21) – Fresh flowers can be a beautiful and thoughtful way to acknowledge the gifts of wisdom, friendship and support the elderly have given to you and your family over the years.
- August Birth Flower: Gladiolus – Perfect for those August birthdays, gladiolus has long been the flower associated with the 8th month of the year.
- Savor The Last of Sizzling Summertime – Offer a lush oasis to enjoy in the middle of a summertime desert.

TSFA Convention and Texas Cup Competition
The event no florist worth her pruning shears would dare miss was the Texas Cup competition. This is an annual part of the show where florists from across the state are given a certain period of time to design and create an arrangement worthy to be crowned the Texas Cup winner! Flower Shop Network slipped in and snapped some candid shots of the top three designs!
