This Saturday, December 3rd, is the 4th annual Small Business Saturday, a day which celebrates all the small independent businesses in the UK. The day helps to showcase all the small shops in the towns and cities up and down the UK and this day has grown and grown since its inception. It is good that this day comes just before the festive period as it helps give small businesses a great bit of publicity at this crucial time of the year for them.
Birmingham`s Week Of Kindness is part of the Love Your Neighbour campaign, and to celebrate the week some people are giving away flowers and chocolates in the city centre to passers by. The idea of the campaign is that these gestures of goodwill to strangers will engender some community spirit in Birmingham and lead to people getting to know their neighbours a little better.
A florist in Mayport is displaying a 7 foot Poppy Man as a gesture for the upcoming Remembrance Day. This eye catching creation was actually put together by the Alzheimer`s group at Lakes College, Lillyhall, a few years ago and now florist Suzi Smith of Enchanted Florist is putting it to good use by putting it in the front window of her shop where I am sure it will attract plenty of attention. And she is also pledging to donate 15% of all her sales in the shop this week to the Royal British Legion. Check out the picture below of the Poppy Man structure.
Hello and welcome to another blog post here at Armagh Blooms. We came upon a very interesting article the other day about how flowers can help you beat those horrible morning blues.

Have you ever heard of birth month flowers? They are the flowers which signify a particular month and which are traditionally given as gifts to people who have a birthday in that month. Obviously a birth month flower is one that is in season for that time of year. It is believed this tradition of giving flowers as birthday gifts started around the time of the Roman empire and in Victorian times each flower was given various meanings so that when you gave a gift it conveyed a secret message to the recipient.

There is no doubt that flowers have a startlingly positive effect on the psyche of the vast majority of people.
