Spring has sprung!


    The Winter slumber is finally over and Spring is here to bloom and blossom. Flower shops are prepping for the season and with that comes high demand for vases, candles and planters. Vasesource has been the leading provider of unique, custom wholesale vases, planters and candles for over 2 decades. Our experience in the industry, loyal clientele over the years and professional customer service we provide is what sets us apart from the rest. Since launching the company, we’ve added many other products to our inventory such as faux greenery and flowers. This includes beautiful faux cherry blossom stems in white, light pink and hot pink adding the perfect touch for any Spring occasion.

Another reason to look forward to this season is Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 14th. This holiday is the perfect time to gift a beautiful bouquet of flowers to represent love and appreciation to a mother or motherly figure. What Mother doesn’t love a beautiful arrangement of flowers in a gorgeous vase? When did bouquets become a symbol of gifting in our culture?


    According to OpenAI's ChatGPT, “The act of giving flowers as a gift dates back thousands of years, with evidence of flower-giving dating back to ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. However, the use of bouquets as a specific symbol of gifting in our modern culture is believed to have originated during the Victorian era in England (1837-1901). During this time, flowers were used to convey messages and emotions, and the Victorian "language of flowers" became a popular way to communicate through floral arrangements. Different flowers were assigned different meanings, and specific combinations of flowers were used to convey particular messages. Bouquets became a popular gift item during the Victorian era, and their use as a symbol of love and affection has continued to this day. Today, bouquets are commonly given as gifts for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and holidays, and they are often used to express sentiments such as love, gratitude, and sympathy."
