Give Your Boss A Great Gift

Each October, we have the opportunity to honor the individuals who share their wisdom, encouragement and leadership with us on a daily basis. Bosses Day began in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski noticed that her boss, who was also her father, performed multiple tasks on a daily basis to benefit his employees, but was never recognized for his efforts. To change this, his daughter requested to designate a specific day to show appreciation for bosses, choosing her father’s birthday, October 16th, as the special day. Four years later, National Bosses Day was official. Today, Port Charlotte Florist celebrates the mentors bosses have become with a variety of gifts, plants and floral arrangements that bosses will love. Read More about Give Your Boss A Great Gift »

Pretty Plants Make Life Healthier

The refreshing sensation of walking through a park or forest can have multiple health benefits, like increasing focus, creating balance in your emotions and reducing stress. Show yourself some love and create a similar vibe in your own home or office with beautiful leafy plants. As oxygen givers and carbon dioxide takers, plants are designed to cleanse impurities from the air while naturally increasing air quality. Port Charlotte Florist recommends starting with a low-maintenance variety if you’ve never cared for plants before, then moving on to more needy species.

Celebrating Port Charlotte’s Best Boss

National Boss's Day may not be the most well-known holiday observance.  But considering that we spend nearly one-third of our waking hours in the workplace, it makes sense that this day is set aside to enhance the relationships between employers and their employees. Originally instituted in 1962, this day is recognized on October 16 not only in America, but in several other countries as well, such as India and South Africa. Anyone who has ever reported to a supervisor knows that having a good boss makes going to work a lot easier. If you are lucky enough to be working for a talented leader, mark your calendar and let them know you appreciate them on October 16. Gather your co-workers, and call Port Charlotte Florist for plants, flowers and gifts perfect for the occasion.  Read More about Celebrating Port Charlotte’s Best Boss »
