Create a Healthier Environment on Houseplant Appreciation Day

Houseplant Appreciation Day is Sunday, January 10th. This national special occasion day was created to raise awareness about the health benefits of plants in terms of their ability to clean the air and provide more oxygen. These gifts from nature also provide beautiful decor and ambiance for a home, office, or home office, adding color, multidimensional decor, and interest. With the limitations on going out, it's nice to have some greenery surrounding us and those we love.

Send Thank You Flowers After the Holidays

Now that the holidays are behind us and 2021 is here, it is a good time to reflect and review what you could accomplish last year and who was there to help. Whether it was someone that extended kindness to you during the holidays or at some point in 2020 that you forgot to acknowledge, now is the time to show your appreciation. While you may have to stay socially distanced for a while longer, you can send a contactless thank you so you let others that you are thinking of them during this time.

Celebrating Poinsettia Day on December 12th

Poinsettia Day is this Saturday, December 12th. Each year, this holiday occasion is celebrated on December 12th. As a long-treasured symbol of Christmas, the poinsettia plant offers a bright and cheerful way to decorate for the holidays or give a special gift to someone in your life. In 2002, Congress made National Poinsettia Day official, recognizing the work that Paul Ecke, the founder of America's poinsettia industry, had done. Before that, though, the poinsettia plant has had a long history of being used and shared, all the way back to the 1300s when the Aztecs used the flowers for making red dye. Now, Poinsettia Day is more about recognizing this beautiful flowering plant and giving it others during the holiday season. Besides gifting the poinsettia plant and using it as part of your own holiday decor, there are other fun ways to make the most of Poinsettia Day. Make Poinsettia Art This is a particularly fun activity to do if you have kids. But, even as adults, you may enjoy this type of activity, which also provides a way to add more Christmas decor to your home. Use available materials like construction paper or other items to make poinsettia ornaments for the [...]

Pay Tribute to Those Who Served in the Armed Forces on Veterans Day

Veterans Day is November 11th. It's a special day where we stop and reflect as well as honor those who have served in the Armed Forces. Whether it is the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard, these men and women deserve a whole-hearted tribute and recognition for being on the front lines and defending the freedoms and rights of our country. Even if they are no longer with us, these veterans should be remembered for their service. Throughout Rome, Georgia and Cedartown, Georgia, we are honoring our veterans on this Veterans Day. Although we may not be able to have the same parades and public events that we have done in the past, there are many ways to thank our veterans. First, call and thank the veterans you know. If possible, stop by and let them know you appreciate them. If either of those options isn't possible, you can also send a letter to them. Or, you can organize a drive-by parade of a veteran's house so they can have their own personal parade! Second, if these veterans have passed away, then perhaps it is possible to visit their graves and leave them a bouquet of patriotic flowers to show [...]

Decorating Your Home with Autumn Floral Hues

The beauty of fall is that there is such a rich collection of colors that define the season. That gives us many ways to decorate that fit our home and personal style. Our Rome, Georgia flower shop and Cedartown flower shop both offer a fall collection of flowers that illustrate the range of colors available across our autumn floral products. Orange and Peach We equate the color orange with fall primarily because of pumpkins. This popular symbol of fall offers a fun way to decorate your home. Add pumpkins to your front porch along with other gourds. Or, you can use our ceramic pumpkin containers to display flowers throughout your home, including as a centerpiece. However, peach has grown in popularity as a fall color for more subdued floral designs, including elegant presentations that combine peach and cream flowers. Yellow Yellow is another popular hue for autumn due in large part to the use of sunflowers in rustic fall arrangements. Along with pumpkins, the sunflower is a cheerful way to celebrate the season, adding warmth as the weather changes to cooler temperatures. Of course, we also have other yellow flowers like roses to add sunshine to your fall decor. Metallic This year, [...]

Honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Flowers From Bussey’s Florist

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a month to focus on awareness and support for breast cancer. It involves informing more about early detection, the importance of mammograms, how to treat breast cancer, and how to provide positive support. This is also a time to focus on fundraising to help accelerate breast cancer research and treatment. The month of October is also an opportune time to show love and support to those you know that are fighting breast cancer or have even recovered. Every year, there are many local events to participate in. However, 2020 is a little bit different with many of these going virtual. There is also an opportunity for you to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month in other ways: Use your social media accounts and profiles to draw attention to this month with stickers, frames, photos, and posts about those you know fighting it now and those you know who may have recovered. Or, maybe you may even post about someone who lost their battle to remind others of the importance of supporting this cause. Volunteer for a breast cancer organization or event. Support charities that nonprofits that provide support to breast cancer patients, such as those that [...]
