Don’t Forget Your Boss!

Did you know that Boss’s Day is only five days away? On this coming Monday CEO’s and executives desk’s all across the country will be filled with gifts of appreciation. Don’t forget to show your thankfulness for your boss with an exceptional gift! Here are some of our favorite flower arrangements that are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

Ordering a flower arrangement from your local florist takes the hassle and stress out of searching for a gift. The flowers only take a minute to order and they are delivered right to your boss’s desk! It can’t get anymore convenient than that!

What flowers do you choose?

Now all you have to do is pick out an arrangement. Traditional flowers are always a safe bet. For example this fall-themed arrangement with lilies, sunflowers and roses would be an excellent choice. Ask some of your co-workers if they want to purchase the arrangement together to split the cost.

If you have a close relationship with your boss and happen to know his or her favorite color or birthday, think about ordering a more personalized arrangement. If your boss’s birthday is in November you could order an arrangement with the November birth month flower, chrysanthemum. If your boss loves the color pink, ask your local florist to only include beautiful pink blooms. You could even add a box of chocolates to sweeten the surprise!

Thanking your boss on this holiday is a great way to strengthen your relationship. Everyone loves to receive positive affirmation and to hear that they are doing a good job. Include a simple card message with your flowers that says, “Thank you for being a great boss!” If you have specific examples of a time when your boss was kind or fair, include that in your card message as well.

A high-quality boss deserves a high-quality gift! Find a florist near you today to order some beautiful flowers for your boss!

Flower Power

Never underestimate the power of flowers. If there is a gift-giving occasion you’re buying for, flowers are always the perfect choice. Why? Because they are so customizable!

Your boss has personal tastes, and there’s no better way to give them exactly what they want than with flowers. Is she a nature lover? A bouquet of flowers would make her day. Maybe she’s a sports fan. Your florist can put together an arrangement that uses team colors or even incorporates team paraphernalia. If you want a gift personalized to your boss’s specific tastes, you want flowers!

Living Plants and More

But what if you got her flowers last year? It’s perfectly understandable if you want to mix it up, but you can do that at the florist too!

If you need something besides flowers, you will find a host of living plants that go perfect in any office. And they freshen the air during the day! Even if your boss is completely uninterested in natural beauty, you still have a ton of options. Is she more interested in chocolate or salty snacks? A gift basket with some of her favorite foods is sure to be a big hit!

5 Best Reasons to Buy Flowers in October

Every month has great reasons to send flowers. Here are five for October we think you’re going to love. And remember, you don’t have to wait for one of these special days. You can send flowers anytime!

#1. Columbus Day – October 13th

The anniversary of Columbus landing in the new world is celebrated the world over. It became a federal holiday in the United States in 1937 and was officially set as the second Monday in October in 1970. Nothing like some lovely flowers to show your appreciation of the discovery of the Americas!

#2. Boss’s Day – October 16th

It’s the boss’s job to appreciate and value her workers on a daily basis. But when does the boss ever get a little recognition? Now you can let the head man or woman in your office know how much you appreciate them with a lovely arrangement or living plant. Who knows? There might be a raise in it for you!

#3. Sweetest Day – October 18th

Celebrated on the third Saturday in October, this holiday is a celebration of candy and all the delicious wonders it brings. It is traditionally celebrated by being sweet to someone you love. That has to mean flowers, doesn’t it? Well, if you want to stick with the candy theme, your local florist would be more than happy to set you up with some well designed and delicious candy baskets. Don’t forget the sweet this Sweetest Day. Send flowers!

#4. Mother-In-Law Day – October 26th

The 4th Sunday in October is reserved for Mother-in-Law Day. Yes, that means it is sometimes concurrent with Halloween. Thought that may seem apt to some of you, but the rest of us love our mothers-in-law and are excited to have a day to celebrate their contribution to the family. And even if your relationship with your mother-in-law is less than cordial, perhaps a lovely arrangement of flowers could be the first step in changing it!

#5. Halloween – October 31st

Is it quirky dress-up time yet? Oh yeah! It’s time to put on someone else’s clothes and throw a party! And what are some of the best party decorations ever discovered? Only a perfectly themed arrangement, centerpiece or wreath from your local florist. Don’t wait for the big day to place your order. Go in early and let them make something that will impress your guests!

(Canadian Bonus) Thanksgiving – October 13th

For those customers in Canada or who have relatives in Canada, it’s Thanksgiving! Is there a better gift to offer your host or hostess for the Thanksgiving feast than flowers? And if you’re the one hosting, floral arrangements make the perfect decoration. Contact your local florist and purchase something thematic and special to place in the center of your table or to beautify your dining room!

But those aren’t the only reasons to send flowers this October. Maybe you know someone with a birthday or just want to give a gorgeous bouquet to a prospective interest. Can you think of any other reasons to send flowers in October? Let us know in the comments below!

A Giving Boss’s Day with FSN

Boss’s Day was a roaring success at the FSN offices, and for more than just our bosses!

The sales department decided to do something a little different this year to honor Brock and Loranne, the owners of Flower Shop Network. Because our owners are such generous people, the sales department chose to do something that embraced their spirit, something that went beyond the walls of our offices and reached out into the community.

Backpack Food Drive

Our local Backpack Food Program collects non-perishable food from the community and businesses in the area and delivers it to local schools, fills backpacks with the collected food and distributes it to children of needy families. This year, as a Boss’s Day tribute, every member of the sales department brought food from home to make a sizable contribution in the name of our owners and sales managers. Way to go, guys!

The contribution

Here is a photo of the contribution in total. Looks like a lot of meals gathered up there. [Read more…]

5 Floral Gift Ideas for 5 Different Boss Types

Boss's Day - Send Flowers

Boss’s Day has really gained traction in recent years. If there was ever a time when this holiday could be ignored or set aside in favor of more important things, that time is long passed. So if you have a boss, and let’s be honest most of us have a boss, here are a few floral gift ideas to make your boss’s Boss’s Day a roaring success!

The Sports Fan

If you’ve ever seen your boss sporting their favorite football team’s mascot on his tie, he may be a sports fan. Your local florist is more than aware of any local or regional sports teams and probably carries a plethora of items they could use to put together a wonderful sports-themed arrangement. If nothing else, an arrangement using flowers in your boss’s favorite team’s colors can provide that “Wow” factor! If your boss loves golf, a sport where there are no teams, or is a fan of a team across the country, do not fret! Your local florist will have what they need to put together something impressive!

The Workaholic

Does your boss spend long hours at the office? Is she there when you arrive and there when you leave? Then she may be a workaholic. The best gift for these dedicated employers is a potted plant! The plant will inject some much-needed nature into their world while offering fresh oxygen that hasn’t been run through the building’s filters and HVAC unit. A plant is also very low maintenance. It will be a benefit without distracting this hard worker from her daily duties.
