In the U.S. and elsewhere, it's long been the custom to give a host gift to someone who is having you in their home. Even in these post-Emily Post days, this is a tradition we at Toblers Flowers would like to see continue, especially on Thanksgiving, when so many of us are traveling over hill and dale to break bread with friends and family. This year, while you're putting together your stuffing or green bean casserole contribution, remember the flowers, too. Read More about Bring a Bouquet for the Host
Veterans Day is November 11, and our Kansas City community is busy planning the parades, parties and observances that will honor our U.S. military vets and their service to country. While we enjoy coming together to acknowledge our cherished heroes publicly, there's nothing like reaching out to a veteran personally to extend your gratitude. A phone call, a home-cooked meal and even a flower gift is in order. And if our favorite patriots live far from us, or can't make it out to one of the many events in town, flowers become an even more important gesture.
Since the majority of our veterans are male, we at Toblers Flowers have our eye on a couple of arrangements that will appeal to both men and women. These fetching flowers are well-suited to the occasion at hand. Read More about Fetching Flowers for Veterans Day

In the early 1900's, a young man by the name of Herbert Kingston had an idea. He worked in a candy company in Cleveland, and thought that giving away chocolates to the poor, orphaned and elderly would go a long way to telling those people that they mattered and were not forgotten. His idea inspired the company executives, who agreed to giving away over 25,000 boxes of chocolate, resulting in the first Sweetest Day. Within 5 years, the day had become a regional celebration, and had spread as far as New York State, who made it an official holiday.
Through the years, the observance has evolved into a day which encourages acts of kindness for those who need a smile. Tobler's Flowers has the flowers, chocolates and gifts perfect to spread happiness throughout Kansas City this October 21. Read More about Sweetest Day – A Century of Sweet Gestures
