The week of May 6 through May 12 is one you need to circle on your calendar. Nurse and Teacher Appreciation Week is a big deal, and there’s zero chance that with seven days on the books, you’ll overlook giving something special to all of those wonder women in your life. We here at Mission Viejo Florist are here to make that particular task easy for you, not that it isn’t already. In two fields dominated by women, we all want to honor those ladies who educate, nurture and otherwise empower the rest of us.
Earth Day is coming back around again (April 22), giving our global community a time to remember what we cherish about our great planet and the chance to renew our commitment to preserving it. Here in Orange County, there are many events happening that make celebrating the Earth fun and informative, including recycling drives, garden shows, festivals, hikes and more. That’s just the tip of the iceberg—our community is invested in doing what we can to provide good stewardship to Mother Earth. Here at Mission Viejo Florist, we think it’s just as important to enjoy our planet’s bountiful natural resources and riches in the form of flowers.
As the seasons change, we may feel called to make changes in our work or personal lives as well. Administrative Professionals Day is the perfect time to think about “Desktop Awareness.” How might you change up the look of your work environment to enliven your experience and output? Mission Viejo Florist has an abundance of ideas for this invigorating time of year.
Every time spring rolls around, the design team here at Mission Viejo Florist feels a sense of renewal and re- invigoration. Certainly, working with the season’s blooms has something to do with that, but we also know that for many people, this is a time to clear away the old and introduce the new. We do our big spring cleans, planting, replacing old and failing items with new ones, and lightening up our decor around this time. We find the best way to do this last one is by introducing some fresh, vibrant plants and flowers.
On March 8, we here at Mission Viejo Florist will join women and men in over 100 countries world-wide in honoring the efforts and achievements of women to improve the lives of others. Since 1909, we’ve been doing this, and yet, we don’t have a specific gifting tradition for it. In other cultures, they give particular florals or buy every single woman in the family, from the youngest to the oldest, flowers. We think it’s time we established our own floral giving tradition for IWD, and that it should start with the colors most associated with the day.
Here at Mission Viejo Florist, we’re well versed in all of the benefits flowers offer the people who spend time with them. After all, we basically live with fresh blooms and plants, so we can fully attest to how they uplift the mood, soothe the soul and calm the mind. We also believe that it’s an important act of self-care to buy yourself flowers from time to time, and if we were doctors, we’d write you a prescription for just that.
There are plenty of occasions in which to offer flowers, and many of them are holidays. Of course we love them all, but some of the best we’ve seen have nothing to do with an actual event or holiday, they have to do with a personally meaningful occasion between the giver and the one who receives the gift. In fact, here at Mission Viejo Florist, these are some of our favorite flower exchanges because they are unique. We love to see what people do for these personal events.
February is Creative Romance Month, a time, we here at Mission Viejo Florist think, to get a little more thoughtful and imaginative in how you express your love. It’s a kind of wake-up call we can definitely get behind, since it can feel like we often fall into a rut when it comes to the dates we plan and the gifts we give. Thankfully, we’re more than equipped to help you out on the gift end.
