October Events and Special Days to Enjoy in Long Beach

October is so much more than just the month where Halloween lands on the last day. There are numerous other special occasions that are good to remember and celebrate that will show others that you are thinking of them and appreciate that they are part of your life.

This starts next week with Bosses Day (October 16th) and Bosses Week (October 16-21). That’s followed by the Sweetest Day on October 21st, a day in which you think of sweet ways to express yourself to others you care about. Then, if you have a spouse, you won’t want to forget about Mother-in-Law Day on October 22nd.

Each of these special days can be highlighted with a special gift from our Long Beach flower shop for a local recipient. Or, many of our products can be shipped anywhere in the country or delivered thanks to our network of florist partners. Here are some ways to celebrate and decorate for all the special days in October.

Let’s start with the Boss. We have a whole selection and gift guide that highlights the best gifts for men. If you have a female boss, many of these items still work, too! That’s because the gift guide features gorgeous orchid plants, gift baskets, plants and more that are sure to show any boss that you appreciate their guidance and trust in you.

Next is the Sweetest Day. You could opt for chocolates or a gourmet gift basket. Or, you could get something spectacular from our online Long Beach bakery partner who creates every item fresh on a daily basis. Their selections include cookies, macaroons, tarts, pies, brownies and more. These are for local Long Beach delivery only though!

Then, there is your Mother-in-Law. Flowers are a great way to show your love and there are all types of arrangements to choose from. For example, Peachy includes dahlias, gerbera daisies, green ball dianthus, and many other blooms and greenery accents. Fountainbleau is absolutely stunning. This garden style design has an abundance of roses, orchids, calla lilies, hydrangea, and greenery.  

Finally, there is Halloween. Bam Boo Boo features orange lilies, bamboo, hypericum, millet, coxcomb, and green cymbidium orchids. The Trendy Autumn Fresh Bouquet is gorgeous and includes a mix of fall flowers and green hydrangea for a truly unique floral display. Be sure to come into our Long Beach flower shop to see more of our Halloween flower arrangements, fall gifts, and gift ideas for all of these special October days.

Celebrating Good Neighbor Day in Long Beach

Your local neighbors in Long Beach are often who you turn to when you need a watchful eye on your home while you are away or help with pets, kids, or the mail. Or, it may be that you are new to the area and have yet to meet your neighbors. Maybe you’ve noticed someone is new on your block.

September 28th is the perfect day to do something about any and all of these. That’s because it’s National Good Neighbor Day. President Jimmy Carter made it a national holiday way back in 1978 as a way to always maintain that community spirit. It’s because neighborhoods had strength, unity, and security to our country. They keep us together in times of trouble. 

Just think about the recent national disasters with the hurricanes. It’s neighbors helping neighbors. And, we can’t ever forget that.

Whether you send a handwritten note, tell them in person, or send a sweet gift, National Good Neighbor Day is the best time to start focusing on the benefits of having neighbors.

We’ve got some great gift ideas that you can order in our Long Beach flower shop or through our website:
