Make a Difference Day in San Diego

The fourth Saturday of every October is Make a Difference Day. Celebrated all over the country, this is a day dedicated to serving the local community in some way. It's a great day to get involved in a volunteer project anywhere in San Diego or create your own project that can make a difference in the lives of others. There are even websites to help you find something to do in your local area on Make a Difference Day. Just in San Diego County, there are food drives, car washes, and other volunteer projects that you can join. There are also many listed that can involve your kids so you can get them started early on becoming more socially conscious and service-oriented. Also, there are many Breast Cancer awareness events still going on through the end of October. This is the perfect time to send a flower arrangement and use this simple gesture to make a difference in someone else's life. Or, a gift of a bouquet could recognize an individual or organization that has gone out of their way to help others on Make a Difference Day and every other day in the year. Here are some flower arrangement ideas:

Celebrating Homecoming in San Diego

Homecoming is back again at all San Diego high schools. This is one of those important school memories to make that will last a lifetime. It's fun and a great time to enjoy friendships. Typically a weekend celebration, there is still a lot to do to get ready. While some homecoming dances are formal and require a tuxedo and formal dress, others are semi-formal. Either way, there has to be time spent getting those outfits that are dress to impress. There's also hair to be done and possibly a limo to rent. So many decisions and so little time. That's because there are also homecoming flowers to order, including a corsage and boutonniere. That's where we come to the rescue with our numerous San Diego flower shop locations that offer homecoming flowers for your budget. You can pick up from our San Diego flower shops or have your homecoming flowers delivered. Just be sure to order these as soon as possible as we get very busy during homecoming season.
