We were thrilled to be a part of a great cause this Mother’s Day. We donated 15 floral arrangements for all the Mom’s who are staying at the YWCA. The YWCA is dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence, homelessness and poverty. They believe that healthy women and healthy families lead to a thriving community – and so do we. We hope our flowers made them smile. The brief article that appeared in the YWCA newsletter follows.

Congratulations go out to Amy Leigh who is the winner of our Pamper Your Mom Contest. She wrote a very moving entry that I am sure you will agree, shows why her Mom deserves to be pampered. Happy Mother’s Day!!

Amy Leighs Entry:

I want to pamper my mom because of her outstanding strength and dedication to our family. When my dad had a massive seizure and we found out that he had brain cancer, she stood by him and didn’t show us her weakness. When we found out that it was terminal, she continued to stay strong. When he decided to do an alternative diet, she did it with him.

My mom is an amazing woman, who puts her family first and herself second. She watches her granddaughters as often as she can, because it gives her pride to see their smiling faces. She cares for my aunts who have health issues, and she still finds time to do a daily morning workout. This woman is honestly amazing, and I want her to know how much everyone cares about her. What she does doesn’t go unnoticed.
I love you mom!

Over the years, Administrative Professionals Week has become one of the largest workplace observances. The event is celebrated worldwide, bringing together millions of people for community events, educational seminars and individual corporate activities recognizing support staff.

In response to staff decreases, Admins take on more responsibility.
Administrative Professionals Day recognizes the office professional’s contribution to today’s workplace. During the current economic downturn administrative professionals are increasing their workload and expanding their roles when office staff is downsized.

Administrative professionals are no longer simply answering phones and handling correspondence; Admins of today are buying software, learning how to use it and training the management. In addition, the latest surveys shows that Admins are branching out into non-traditional roles including budget analysis, research, project management and internal communications.

Remember to thank your admin this week on Administrative Professionals Day, Wednesday, April 21.

Every year Easter seems to sneak up on me, I can’t believe it’s next week already! For this holiday we are featuring fun, fresh and funky arrangements to jazz up your Easter table. Try something new this year for your centerpiece; how about a series of your prettiest tea cups filled with delicate blooms parading down the table or a simple vase of mixed colored tulips accented with beaded Easter Eggs.  We have adorable little mock chocolate bunnies that are so cute tucked in amongst your flowers, I’ll bet everyone will try to take a bite.

So mix it up this year and have fun with your Easter arrangements,
