Stop into Pugh’s Flowers and visit a floral designer to discover sensational flower arrangements for Boss’s Day
Pugh's Flowers The most fortunate individuals have a great boss they respect, appreciate and value working with. One special way to express sincere gratitude this Boss's Day is to send a flower arrangement from Pugh's Flowers! People easily recognize that talented leaders are the ones that encourage us to be at our best while continually helping us feel motivated and positive about our accomplishments and contributions. Pugh's Flowers has the freshest, most thoughtful and most creative floral presentations to reflect just how much respect and appreciation you have for your boss. The idea of "National Boss's Day" was offered up to the United States Chamber of Commerce in 1958. The thoughtful woman who introduced the concept was working for her father as a secretary at a State Farm Insurance Company in Illinois. In her observation, it did not seem clear to younger workers that their supervisors were dedicated, committed and hard working individuals. She felt their dedication needed to be realized and appreciated. While it used to be common place to simply give your boss or supervisor a thank you card, today it is appropriate, in most offices, to give he or she a gift. Typical gifts are candy and chocolates. In many cases employees pool their money to buy even bigger gifts. Do you have a special boss that you would like to give a special floral gift to? We have just what you need at Pugh's Flowers! In addition to beautiful flower arrangements and bouquets from Pugh's Flowers, below are a few additional great ideas to make your boss feel special. Most people in the office enjoy potluck events. You might arrange and host a potluck and keep your boss's favorite foods and beverages in mind. Give your boss a positive shout out using social media. If your boss enjoys outdoor activities, perhaps arrange for her or him to take the day off and play a round of golf. Purchase a large appreciation card and ask everyone in the office to sign the card. Another idea which is good for business is to invite customers or clients to the potluck or other special after hours event and have them share memories of your boss. Create a timeline of your boss’s accomplishments. Pugh's Flowers offers wonderful options for Boss's Day flower arrangements and below is a small sample: Autumn Radiance - Radiant roses and lush fall blooms are presented to perfection in a keepsake mosaic vase of stunning stained glass.

September is just around the corner and with it comes Labor Day on the first Monday of the month. This year, that falls on September 6th. While some see Labor Day as a three-day weekend that serves as the unofficial end to summer, others recognize that the day was created to honor the American worker. Many businesses actually close down on Labor Day, which gives many the day off to enjoy rest after working so hard. However, not everyone is so fortunate like those in retail and other service businesses. Business owners often don't get Labor Day off either. Whatever the case, Labor Day is the opportune time to show others how you appreciate what they do in helping our local and national economy. This includes small business owners who provide jobs and generate work for more people. From freelancers to employees, there are so many people out there, working hard throughout Memphis and across the country. We are so thankful for all the talented individuals who work hard in our Memphis flower shop. We also are here to help you show your appreciation this Labor Day with flowers or provide you with event flowers for an upcoming Labor Day event. Here are some ideas for using flowers this Labor Day. For business owners with employees you want to reward for their hard work, consider a bouquet each. We have many wrapped bouquets and cube vase bouquets that are a beautiful and cost-effective way to show your thanks this Labor Day. If you have a small team, we also have a wide range of special gift packages that include flowers and other thoughtful products. These package deals provide a way to say thank you and show appreciation for all the dedication your staff delivers. Even if you are not a business owner and just want to send love to someone you know works so hard, any of these floral gift items also are a nice way to transmit that sentiment. It could be an entrepreneur, freelancer, or just hard worker but it's a friend, family member, colleague, or neighbor who you know deserves some extra kudos. We also can help you with Labor Day event flowers for any Memphis venue, including your backyard or local Memphis park. Adding flowers provides a special touch to add to the overall Labor Day party. We offer centerpieces and other floral displays. Call us to make your appointment today! For other flowers and floral gifts, you can order in-person at our Memphis flower shop, call us, or use our online order form found on our website. We offer local Memphis pick up at our florist location or contactless delivery.

We also are fortunate to have local partners provide many of these products, including custom greeting cards that do accompany many of our gift packages.

With so much going on around the country and world that has created stress not to mention all the day-to-day worries all of us face, it's good to focus on positive things to help alleviate some of that fear and concern. August has us all getting started on the right foot with putting kindness first and being more thoughtful with two special occasions. These are National Smile Week, which is the second week in August, and National Romance Awareness Month where we celebrate month every day in August. In doing so, we may be in the habit of then continuing to put kindness, others, romance, and other positive behaviors first. Not only will we help others, but we will also feel better practicing these behaviors. If you plan on celebrating one or both of these August occasions, your favorite Memphis flower and gift shop has some wonderful and thoughtful ways to show others you care about them. Let's start with National Smile Week, which is occurring right now. Our Complete Gift Package Collection is a great place to start because it has so many cheerful and generous packages to choose from. Each package includes a beautiful bouquet along with other goodies, such as greeting cards, baked goods, balloons, spa products, and/or stuffed animals. Another option sure to make your recipients smile is our Sunflower Collection. The sunflower has to be one of the most cheerful flowers that Mother Nature has gifted us. Always inspiring to our floral design team at our Memphis flower shop, we now offer a wide range of floral designs and gift packages that include sunflowers. Now, let's talk romance. We've got a wide selection of floral designs, bouquets, and gift packages to show your love. For example, our Someone Loves Me package in red includes a large arrangement of red roses along with a cute plush skunk, a balloon, and greeting card. We also have stunning floral arrangements that include other premium flowers like orchids and lilies. Many of our other floral designs are also romantic and overflow with beautiful flowers like hydrangea in pastel colors.
