Open 24 Hours on Valentine’s Day

One of the most requested things we hear at our Long Beach flower shop is that customers really appreciate the convenience of the hours we stay open during certain holidays.

Year after year, we’ve done so on Valentine’s Day, starting the night before Valentine’s Day on February 13th and continuing into the evening of Valentine’s Day on February 14th.

Staying open 24 hours allows those of you who work different shifts to come in and shop rather than just relying on our website.

This way, we can work with you on designing what you would like and also take advantage of special seasonal items we have in our Long Beach flower shop, including Valentine’s Day stuffed animals, balloons, and greeting cards.

To get you in the mood to come shop in our Long Beach flower shop or our new Los Angeles florist location, check out some of these beautiful Valentine’s Day gift ideas:

Celebrating Veteran’s Day

Our Veterans deserve your thanks. Every day, our armed forces are out risking their lives to protect us and our freedoms in this country.

We may argue amongst ourselves about who should represent this country and about what should be legal and accepted, but there is one thing that we all can and should agree on: Our Veterans deserve respect; they have more than earned it with their service and self-sacrifice for this country and us as citizens.

Commitment and Sacrifice

Veterans know more than any other person about commitment to a country filled with a billion people. Being willing to sacrifice themselves for this country and its billion people takes a different kind of person to be willing to through it all away for others and for that.

For them always being there for us, it is time for us to always be there for them. Politics don’t matter here; these people and these heroes are doing this for all of us, and we owe them our deepest gratitude.

Treat Them, Thank Them, and Be There for Them

Chances are you know a Veteran; they could be a friend or even a family member. They could have served in a time of peace or a time of war and no matter which, they deserve our gratitude.

There are many ways you can show you’re thanks to a member of the armed services. Sometimes, just walking up to them and thanking them is enough, but if you know them, know that there is so much more that you can do.

Take them out; if they are family or friends, then chances are you know what they like to eat anyways. Cover any and all expenses and be sure to thank them. Lunch, dinner, or for the early risers, breakfast can all be great ways to show thanks, but we live busy lives and not everyone lives close.

So what do you do if your Veteran isn’t just a few doors down? We urge you to still find a way to thank them. Sure you probably have thanked them in the past, but our soldiers really are the gift that keeps on giving. So whether it is a phone call, a card, letter or even just a message over the Internet, please remember to thank our troops this Veteran’s Day.

From everyone at Allen’s Flower Market, thank you to those who serve our country and keep us safe.

A Bountiful Gift Basket for Every Occasion this Fall Season

Fall is here and with it comes a whole new sort of holidays, birthdays and, of course, preparation for Thanksgiving and Christmas (though most of you probably wait for the chaos of Black Friday to get all of the very best deals when shopping for Christmas gifts).

However, there are more than a couple holidays and events of all sorts that happen between now and Christmas, including Halloween and Thanksgiving. There are also the fall dinner parties and birthdays, so when one of these springs up on you, what do you do?

Gift Baskets Galore

We carry dozens of unique gift baskets that will fit the bill for any and all occasions, birthdays, parties, get well’s and even for those of you who just want to treat yourselves.

For instance, take our Cheese and Fruit basket. This delicacy is both gourmet and delicious and filled to the brim with scrumptious fruit and cheese. The Cheese and Fruit Basket is perfect for any dinner party, including the black tie ones in particular.

For the chocolate lovers, we have the amazingly gourmet and perky Chocolate and Coffee Basket.  This gourmet basket contains some of the highest quality chocolate available and, of course, the coffee is quite delicious, too.

Know one of those healthy living kind of people? Do they have a birthday coming up? If so, Allen’s Flower Market has the perfect basket. The Health Nut Basket is a gift basket filled to the brim with all kinds of great healthy snacks and it looks pretty, too.

Maybe they aren’t a health nut though and maybe they have a massive sweet tooth with an unquenchable thirst for yummy candies and great snack food. Well, it just so happens that our Junk Food Basket will put quite the smile on any junk food junkie as it is filled to the brim with all kinds of tasty treats.

At Allen’s Flower Market, we offer baskets of all shapes and sizes with all kinds of great treats inside. Perfect for all occasions and more, these gift baskets will be the talk of the party, shin dig, or office break room, so why not take a quick look at our whole selection?

You will quickly find that we didn’t just highlight the best because all of our baskets are just that good. Whether a junk food junkie or a health food nut, we offer something for everyone. Come see!
