It’s Time to Celebrate Office Admins and Virtual Admins

C1Each year, a special time is set aside to recognize those talented individuals that work tirelessly to handle many of the small details and tasks that actually play a large role in how organized and productive a company and its leadership can be.C2

Those admins who work in the office or virtually are dedicated to making sure everything is handled at the operational level so their bosses can focus on those high-level decisions.

This year, we celebrate Administrative Professionals Week from April 24th to April 29th as well as Administrative Professionals Day on Wednesday, April 27th.C3

This is a good time to let your admins know just how much you value their hard work and dedication.

We have a wide selection of beautiful ways to show your appreciation, including flower arrangements, bouquets, plants and blooming plants and gift baskets. Here are some examples to show you just what is available:

  • Nature’s Delight offers jade cymbidium orchids and roses, dianthus trix, garden hydrangea and green hypericum in a ceramic keepsake cube.
  • The Thinking of You Bouquet is a garden delight with roses, orchids, and hydrangea in a keepsake vase.C4

  • The Exotic Phalaenopsis Orchid with Tropical Bromeliad pairs two tropical flowers together for a long-lasting way to share your appreciation.
  • The Deluxe Orchard Fruit Basket is a great idea for a team of admins to share. They will love the juicy seasonal fruit like oranges, apples, kiwi, grapes and pears.C6

Celebrate Spring Holidays with Tulips from Holland

C1With so many spring holidays in the month of March, it’s a great idea to decorate your home or even gift others with the beauty and color of tulips direct from our flower farm partners in Holland.C3

This favorite spring flower works well with all the special days this month, including St. Patrick’s Day, the first day of Spring, and International Day of Happiness.

Of course, tulips also make a great gift for birthdays, anniversaries, new additions and as a “just because.”

Tulips are also a popular choice for spring weddings and events.

Here are a few ways you can arrange tulips and add color and texture to your home, special event, or loved one’s life:C5

  • Snow White Holland Tulips are bunched together with bright copper wiring and placed in a tall rectangular glass vase with a bed of black river rocks.
  • Holland Tuscany Orange Tulips in Vase offers a fiery, warm display of bright orange in one bouquet.
  • Dutch Farm Fresh Purple Tulips offers a deep purple color that is truly regal.

December 12th is Poinsettia Day

C1c4To get you in the holiday spirit, this Saturday, December 12th is Poinsettia Day, which is the perfect time to get your poinsettia plants for your home and office.

Buying Poinsettia Plants

We have a variety of poinsettia plants ready to take home and enjoy for the holiday season. These include the following options in both red and white:

  • Priced at $45.99, the Holiday Poinsettia stands 15” to 18” tall and features between six and nine blooms. It comes in a wicker basket with holiday trim.
  • Priced at $65.99, the Deluxe Poinsettia stands between 24” and 28” with up to 15 blooms. It also comes in a wicker basket with holiday trim.
  • Priced at $79.99, the Imperial Poinsettia is our luxury option with over 20 blooms and a height of between 30” and 36”.

Visit our Atlanta flower shop and showroom, order online, or call in your order today! 

Caring for Poinsettia Plants

With proper care, you can ensure your poinsettia plants make it to future holidays by looking after them throughout the year. Here are some pointers to make them re-bloom:

  • When you bring your poinsettia home this holiday, make sure it is placed near a sunny window. As a tropical, it likes to soak up the sunlight. It also needs a temperature of between 65 and 75 degrees. This helps keep it happy and stop any premature leaf drop.c2
  • Be sure to water the poinsettia whenever the surface feels dry. Add enough water but not too much that it is sitting in water. While the heating system in the house may need to be on, this can also reduce the humidity, which can harm the poinsettia. Try to maintain a certain level of comfort for the plant so it can make it.
  • Throughout the year, you need to continue monitoring the water, temperature, and sunlight for the poinsettia plant.
  • New growth tends to appear in the spring time, which is a sign to fertilize the poinsettia to help it thrive.
  • Around June, you can move the poinsettia plant outside in a partially shaded area with continued watering and fertilizing.
  • July is the time to pinch each stem back an inch. This encourages more branches rather than letting it grow too tall. These will continue to grow through August and into the fall season. This is the time to take them out of light and put in complete darkness in the evening hours.
  • Stop the evening darkness treatment toward the end of November and put it back in the window to let it stimulate flower buds and start the blooming process all over again.c5

Poinsettia Tips and Things to Remember

  • Danger signs include a stem that looks as though it is shriveling up. This means that the plant is stressed out and is starting to die.
  • Be sure to keep poinsettia plants away from pets as they can prove toxic.
  • Don’t rub your eyes after touching the plants as the sap can cause a rash and irritation.
