Bosses Day originated in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski realized her boss (and father) was working tirelessly to make work life easier for his employees. She chose his birthday as the day to honor all bosses for their unending support of office staff and today we celebrate all bosses on National Bosses Day.

Taking care of yourself in every way possible is a great way to de-stress, relax and feel well enough to care for those around you. But finding simple ways to do this can often be challenging. One simple way to care for yourself is by including plant life in your environment. Take stock of the space where you spend the most time and look for small ways to improve it. Create a plant friendly, uncluttered space that allows room for meditation and quiet thinking. You’ll breathe easier with plants in your space and find that gazing on their natural beauty energizes and relaxes you at the same time. Tobler’s Flowers encourages you to select some of our beautiful plants to include in your stress-free home or work space. Read More about Start Your Self Care September With A Plant »

Here at Tobler's Flowers, we love designing right into a basket. It adds texture and a rustic feeling to even the most elegant grouping of flowers.

Also, administrative employees are now primarily female, with men only representing 5% of the administrative workforce. Read More about Send Flowers for Administrative Professionals Week »
