Professional Administrative Day

In North America Professional Administrative Week is always held the last full week of April and Professional Admin Day is on the Wednesday of that week.

We all know the admin professionals are the glue that holds the office together. Without all their hard work the office wouldn’t run as smoothly as it does and what better way to show them your appreciation then some fresh flowers for their desk. As stated in our previous blog, having some fresh flowers or plants in the office lifts spirits and makes the workplace a more positive environment to work in.

Teleflora has a special bouquet for this day….It’s called Make Their Daisies Bouquet (T16S100A). It comes in a keepsake container decorated in a whimsical design with bright coloured roses, daisies, tulips and other flowers.

Perfect size and style to sit on their desk and when the flowers are gone the container can be used afterward for many purposes-for stationary, reading glasses, candies…..

The professional designers at Brant Florist have the creativity and ability to design the perfect arrangement, made with our large selection of premium grade flowers, to show your gratitude for all those admin professionals that work their tail off to make their bosses look good 😉

Behind every successful team there is an efficient Administrative Professional.

Today is the perfect day to Thank them for all their hard work.

Flowers and their Benefits for Mental Health

There have been plenty of studies to prove that by having flowers in your home will help with your mood, anxiety and overall mental health.

If flowers bring such joy by having them in your living room or dining room, just think how it would lift up the spirits of someone ailing or in a hospital. Studies have shown that having a floral arrangement or a plant in the hospital room of a patient will make them less tired, need less post operative pain medication and be in a more positive psychological state then those patients without plants or flowers.

Same idea goes for having plants or flowers in the workplace; it can help with creativity and also help keep the office morale generally positive.

International Women’s Day 2016

International Women’s Day is celebrated every year around the world to honour women’s achievements socially, politically and economically. It all began around 1909 and after celebrating throughout the years the date has been settled on March 8th.

Flowers just happen to be the most popular gift for International Women’s Day!

The most popular flower in Europe to send for International Women’s Day is the fragrant mimosa flower. It grows from a tree or bush and has bright yellow, tiny, ball-like blooms in a bunch. Mimosa is not a very commonly found flower in the US and Canada but some shops will bring it in for Women’s Day.

Another representation of International Women’s Day is wearing a purple ribbon.

Ordering Flowers for Valentine’s Day

It’s always nice to hear the words “I love you” but to actually show how much you love a person really warms the heart. Your partner knows that you love them but actions…aka gifts… speak louder than words!

Waiting till the last minute to place your order for Valentine’s Day is not recommended as this is the busiest day of the year for all flower shops. It’s best to always call early-not just for Valentine’s Day either-when ordering your flowers. This gives the florist enough time to get the flowers in stock and have your order prepared and delivered on time.

Whether it’s chocolates, balloons, or teddy bears, we have it all. When ordering your flowers for Valentine’s Day don’t forget about all our add-ons!

We have stuffed animals in all sizes, shapes and colours. This way your “honey” will have something after the flowers are gone.

Everyone Loves Chocolate! Here at Brant Florist we can add a half pound box of Walker’s Chocolates to your order to really show them how you feel. And hopefully they will share

Roses are the language of love… but remember there are as many languages out there as there are types of flowers. The key is to know what “language” your loved one speaks.

Happy Valentine’s Day
