April 25, 2018, is Administrative Professionals Day. It is held every year in conjunction with Administrative Professionals Week - a weeklong national observance that used to be known as National Secretaries Week. It was the brainchild of Mary Barrett, who at the time she came up with the idea for this observance, was the former president of the National Secretaries Association. That organization was founded during World War II as a way to support women who were working as receptionists and secretaries. Port Charlotte Florist is thrilled to be able to participate in a national observance that recognizes people with the gift of plants and flowers. In honor of Administrative Professionals Day, we’re showcasing two gifts that we think are ideally suited to any member of your administrative staff. These gifts are compact, so they’re perfect as desk accents. Read More about Sad Desktop No More! »

We here at Port Charlotte Florist are loving our Holiday Gift Guide, and we know you will too!

Designs can be embellished to the hilt, presenting as lush bouquets in a range of textures, or simple and sweet, evoking the clean serenity of freshly- fallen snow.

This past Black Friday, a man walked into a Toys "R" Us and purchased 62 items on layaway, spending more than $10,000 to help strangers have a great holiday. He then upped the ante, buying $2,000 worth of items for Toys For Tots. After his incredible - and anonymous - act of charity, the press referred to him as the ultimate Secret Santa.
It was a 20th century philanthropist who pulled off a similar act (distributing $100 bills in the Kansas City streets) that pioneered Secret Santa as we know it today in the U.S. Since then, we've adopted the practice as a way to exchange gifts in the workplace or with friends. It's that cloak of anonymity that makes the gift-giving so fun, and we here at Port Charlotte Florist know a thing or two about giving gifts.

It's a lot of fun to decorate your workplace for the holidays. Getting the team together for the festive cause of decking your office halls is something only a scrooge would turn down. It gives everyone a break from holiday deadlines and boosts morale. And once you've got the tree decorated and the poinsettias placed? You get to enjoy your group's effort the whole season long.
At Port Charlotte Florist, we love the idea of working together in the service - and spirit - of Christmas. Read More about A Christmas Tree the Office Will Love »

We're all different in how we approach Thanksgiving; for some of us, it's a formal affair, filled with heirloom linens and china, soft candlelight and everyone dressed up. For others, it's a casual potluck on the back patio followed by football in the backyard or a walk on the beach. And then there's the rest of us, who fall somewhere in between!
At Port Charlotte Florist, we've got centerpieces for the Thanksgiving table that will work for everyone. With just a little time and consideration, you can find the perfect one for your dinner. Read More about Centerpieces for Every Thanksgiving »
Our community is steeped in heroes, and on November 11, we honor them. Specifically, we commemorate those veterans who served their country in the U.S. military, defending and protecting the rest of us. But beyond the parades, parties and observances, as well as the informal gatherings with friends and family, we may want to make a personal gesture.
It can be hard to know exactly what to get our favorite veteran, but at Port Charlotte Florist, we have some ideas in mind that speak to the uniqueness of the occasion. Read More about Enduring Floral Gifts for Veterans Day »
