Celebrating Local, National, and International Talent

Today, Friday, March 3rd, we celebrate talent everywhere with Employee Appreciation Day while next Wednesday, March 8th is International Working Women’s Day. Both days recognize the value that skilled workers everywhere have on businesses of all sizes. With more online businesses popping up, more women and men are becoming masters of their own destiny as freelancers and outsource workers. Whatever arrangement you have with these workers, it’s a good idea to take today and next week to thank them for their great ideas, passion, and hard work. We’ve put together a floral gift guide of stunning flowers from our collection that highlights the various sizes and floral designs you have available to send locally to a team member here in San Diego or across the country and world. Check out these gorgeous gift ideas: Vivid Tulips Bubble Bowl comes with 20 beautiful and fresh tulips direct from Holland. It’s that time of year again to enjoy tulips, and these come in a variety of colors hand-arranged in a bubble bowl. Great Gerberas is another bright floral display with locally grown gerbera daisies in an inspiration vase. La Jolla Sunset celebrates this coastal city with bright colors reminiscent of a sunrise
