Bosses Day is a time set aside to honor our employers, the individuals who work hard behind the scenes to make our work life more enjoyable and productive. Started in 1958 by Patricia Bays Haroski, this national observance came into being when she noticed her father- who was also her boss- completing countless jobs in the office to help his employees. Wanting him to be recognized for his efforts, she worked to get National Bosses Day on the calendar on his birthday, October 16th. This year, let Mission Viejo Florist help you choose the ideal gift, plant or floral arrangement for your boss.
This month sees the commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month, a month-long celebration of the rich, cultural impact Hispanic Americans have had on our nation for generations. From September 15 to October 15, national institutions across the country pay tribute to these individuals who have had a positive influence on our society. This is also a time in which many Latin American nations, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, Chile and Belize, celebrate their independence. At Mission Viejo Florist, we are honoring this rich heritage with flowers that hail from Hispanic America.
During the changing season of autumn, it can be enticing to bring fall colors into your neutrally-toned office. Brighten your work space in a creative way by setting jewel-toned floral arrangements full of texture and rich, bold colors around your office to inspire and invigorate you and your co-workers. The floral experts at Mission Viejo Florist find the deeper, brighter jewel-tones to be a cheerful alternative to the traditional harvest hues we tend to see this time of year.
The changing of seasons is an excellent time to experiment with new flavors, colors and fragrances. At your next fall get-together, consider bringing flowers together with a theme of roses. Decorate your table with a stylish bouquet of fall-inspired roses, and even infuse your meal or drinks with rose flavors. The floral experts at Mission Viejo Florist have some excellent suggestions for your next fall table.
Sometimes the idea of self-care starts outside of ourselves. Adding new decor or living plants to our surroundings can inspire another healthy act, like eating well or exercising. When we bring healthy plants into our lives, we not only find ourselves breathing a little easier, we can also become more in tune with our natural interests and passions. The floral experts at Mission Viejo Florist understand the importance of including a living plant in your daily space.
A stay in the hospital is never fun, and it can often be just as difficult for family and friends to watch their loved one suffer as it is sometimes to be ill. While it may seem like there’s not much you can do, time is one of the most precious gifts you can give. Knowing that someone is there for you can be very encouraging. But if you are not able to be there in person, sending a note of encouragement with a beautiful arrangement of flowers is a wonderful way to show you are thinking of someone. It has been scientifically proven that flowers improve your spirit, and the designers here at Mission Viejo Florist are here to help. We can create a customer arrangement or you can choose from our many lovely seasonal designs on our website.
Traditions play an important role in the fabric of family relationships. With a little planning and reflection from last year’s family events, traditions can be established to last for generations. Grandparents Day is a great way to begin a new tradition or continue with an existing one. Celebrated on the second Sunday in September, this is a wonderful time to shower Grandparents with gifts and love. Mission Virgo Florist recommends bringing a certain flower or bouquet to your grandparents each year to substantiate this significant relationship.
When you think about decorating this fall, you may avoid thinking about the inclusion of anything white. After all, we’ve all heard the old advice to avoid white after Labor Day. But this rule, first broken by Coco Chanel, has become one the fashion world loves to break regularly. Stay on trend and bring a modern look to your home or office with a bright, all-white bouquet of flowers for a stunning look that breaks all the rules. The floral designers at Mission Viejo Florist have created some amazing arrangements using only white flowers that will dazzle and impress.
As much as we love all things floral, we are especially excited when we find natural ways to maintain gardens and yards. Keeping your garden and outdoor living space free of pesticides and harmful toxins is a great step towards growing farm-fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables. Encouraging healthy, natural growth will also attract bees and other insects, which isn’t always a bad thing. Bees are excellent pollinators, create balance in the eco-system, and are unfortunately declining in numbers. Mission Viejo Florist recommends keeping pesticide-free, bee-friendly flowers in your garden or outdoor area to encourage a healthy, farm-fresh atmosphere for insects and people alike to enjoy.
