Hey Doctors!

Hey, Doctors!! What’s up!

Wednesday is Doctor’s Day!

Doctor’s Day is set aside on the 30th of March as a day for us to be nice to our doctors. Hmmm… what an interesting thought!

Doctors who work in hospitals are honored by their administration for their hard work and dedication. I’m happy to tell you we deliver lots and lots of boutonnieres to hospitals for their doctors to wear on Wednesday.  RR 2737  Call for pricing!

Veggie Gift Basket

For many years I lived next door to a great doctor. I noticed that when he wasn’t working at his office he was at home studying and reading. I think we forget that medicine evolves and our doctors have to continuously keep up with their education, the diseases, treatments and medicines.

We sometimes forget how important our doctor is. He’s always here for us, and he knows what’s best for us. But sometimes we forget to thank her and tell her how much we appreciate all of the time, work, education and dedication.

Wednesday, March 30, 2016 is set aside as a day to say Thank You.  If your doctor is helpful in any way, for you or you family, let us design and deliver a Thank You Thought from you.

You’ll be a hero, and there’s nothing wrong with that!

Choose from our large selection of goodie baskets from Basket Express or sensational fresh flowers from Roadrunner Florist.  You’ll be glad you did!

 

 

‘Tis the Season…for Bows!

‘Tis the Season…for Bows!

Did you know I spend the month of July hand-making every bow that goes on top of the custom gift baskets I design for Christmas?  One year I forgot and left it until November! NEVER AGAIN!! I learned my lesson and I devote July to making Christmas Bows. Boy, is it worth it, because it gives you an opportunity to have lots of different varieties from which to choose when you order your gift baskets from Basket Express!

This year I have:

A beautiful satin red bow with gold trim.

When you send one of our custom gift baskets, you know the lucky recipient is going to say “WOW!”

They’ll know you didn’t visit a big box store and pick something off the shelf because you think too highly of them to do that, right?

And they’ll receive their perfect Christmas present all wrapped up with one of these hand-made bows!

Assorted Christmas Bows

What a great way to say Merry Christmas to people who are unique and special, just like you.

Apples!

Really Nice Fresh Fruit Basket

Today I want to talk apples.

You know, the red ones, the green ones, the sweet ones, the tart ones, even the in-between ones!

Apples

I’ve never been to an apple orchard (apples don’t exactly grow in the desert southwest) but many of you have! This is your chance to tell me about your trips to an apple orchard! What did you do there? Did you actually climb the trees to get to the apples? How do they keep the worms and birds away? What’s the weather like? Does it rain all the time or is it foggy? Did you wear rubber gloves? Did you get to eat the apples right there on the spot?

Have you ever visited a cider mill? Pamela has, in Franklin, Michigan. Did you watch them make apple cider?

I did a Google search for a picture of an apple orchard. OMG…is this what they really look like?

Apple Orchard

My friend Arnie lives in Connecticut. We told me he was going grocery shopping today, and I asked him to pick up some apples for me!! Yea, right, as if he could do that and bring them right over (it’s only about 2,500 miles!). But he offered (wasn’t that nice of him) and then he told me “next month is apple picking season, so I’ll go to the grove and pick some for you. They’re delicious.”

So I jumped on the opportunity and said, Great, pick some for me!

Then I told him this tidbit: Abbie and I share an apple every day. (yesterday we didn’t have one and we had blueberries instead …not a good season for blueberries and she didn’t like them!).

(For those of you who don’t know, Abbie is my dog. She’s a Bagel (that’s part Black Lab and part Beagle). She LOVES apples.)

Abbie and Me

I was raised on apples. My dad (who is 92) still eats an apple a day! We used to have an Apple Par-tay (accent on the tay) in the evening. We would challenge him to peel a red delicious apple all in one piece (sometimes he could do it) and then we’d fight over who got to eat the peel! Of course it was the middle of that incredible apple that was the star of the show! Pamela’s mother ate an apple every day, too, and she lived to be 91. There must be something special about apples!

Back to the tidbit about apples. I have seen noticeable improvement in my skin since Abbie and I started this at the first of the year! Could it be? Well, the dark spots under my eyes are gone (are you listening, Cindy, because we always thought it was inherited). And I’m tanning beautifully (no burning skin here). I discovered the benefits of eating fruit each day — 1.5 cups for women or 2 cups for men is recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They say, “Consuming apples boosts your intake of essential nutrients, including fiber and the essential mineral potassium. Apples also benefit your appearance, since they contain nutrients that nourish your skin.” They also say apples provide Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Copper.”  Copper? Yes, Copper. Here’s what the U.S. Department of Agriculture says about apples and Copper: “Copper helps you make melanin, the brown-black pigment that colors your skin. Melanin in your skin protects you from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, so being able to produce melanin provides natural sun protection. Melanin also makes up an essential part of other tissues, including your eyes and hair. Each large apple contains 60 micrograms of copper, or 7 percent of your daily copper requirements, according to the Linus Pauling Institute.”

Whenever I design a fresh fruit gift basket, I always include apples. There are so many kinds! Here’s a chart I found that tells about the different types and varieties of apples.

Apple Chart

I remember one day last December I was designing about 25 fresh fruit gift baskets for Christmas presents. I brought in cases of apples from a local farmer’s market and started to separate them for the baskets. Pamela said, “Gee, aren’t you putting anything in the fruit baskets except apples?” But of course I was (I added pears, oranges, lemons, grapefruit and bananas) but the highlight of the fresh fruit baskets were the apples.

My dad still prefers red delicious apples, Pamela, Abbie and I like galas. What is your favorite type of apple and why?

Artisan Gift Baskets and Flowers

Artisan Gift Baskets and Flowers

I never thought of myself as an Artisan. Sure, each gift basket I design is unique, each floral arrangement designed by Pamela is unique, but does that make us “Artisans”?

I decided to ask Wikipedia the definition of “Artisan”. “An artisan (from French: artisan, Italian: artigiano) is a skilled craft worker who makes or creates things by hand that may be functional or strictly decorative, for example furniture, decorative arts, sculptures, clothing, jewelry, household items and tools or even mechanical mechanisms such as the handmade clockwork movement of a watchmaker. Artisans practice a craft and may through experience and aptitude reach the expressive levels of an artist.”

That brought me back to my original question: is a gift basket or floral designer an Artisan?

I spend a lot of time telling you that Pamela and I are real people. We own a beautiful brick and mortar shop in Phoenix, AZ, where we custom design gift baskets and floral arrangements for our customers and friends. We also work with a network of florists across the country and around the world who design custom arrangements, so we know any order placed in our hands, whether it’s professionally delivered by us or by someone we recommend, is an exclusive work of art that makes all of us proud.

<img src="image.gif" alt="These are Pamela & Tina heads only" />  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is our Business Sign" />  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is our New Sign Standard" />

I also spend a lot of time baking. It’s a hobby for me, and the goodies are always delicious! I take a lot of them to the shop to share with people who come in, and I give oodles and oodles away to neighbors and friends.

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is Homemade Pletzel" />  This is Pletzel. My brother Gary requested it. Yummm… soft dough topped with lots of onions and poppy seeds! C’mon over and get some!

There’s even a floral birthday cake that I love to design. It’s different each and every time, but then so is the birthday person! What a great way to wish someone unique a Happy Birthday!

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is a Floral Cake for Julie" />  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is a Floral Birthday Cake" />  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is a Florist Pink Slice of Cake" />

Here are 3 Christmas Bags I designed last month. Each one was different, as you can see.

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is Christmas Gift Bag 1" />  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is Christmas Gift Bag 2" />   <img src="image.gif" alt="This is Christmas Gift Bag 3" /> Does the fact that I custom design each gift basket make me an Artisan?

Here are 4 Christmas centerpieces designed by Pamela in the last couple weeks. Sure, you can go online and order one that looks just like all the rest, or you can contact us and have us design something that’s unique and special, like these.

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is a Merry Christmas Centerpiece" />   <img src="image.gif" alt="This is a One Candle Christmas Centerpiece" />  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is a Christmas Centerpiece with an Angel" />

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is a 3 Candle with Green Centerpeice" />

 OK, I’ll admit it, this one is my favorite of all!

Last Christmas I baked some great brownies and cookies, then delivered them in a pretty box to the nail salon in our strip-mall. In return I received a beautiful ornamental Lenox candle holder. That lead me to think: did the goodies that I had baked so lovingly in my kitchen have the same value as the purchase my friend made at Macys? Indeed, they both have equal value. The time invested in looking for something special is what counts, be it at a store or calling someone like us to design and deliver a unique gift.

We believe each gift basket and floral arrangement we design is a work of art. We also believe each person who orders from us is entitled to a custom designed creation that is an expression of you, the sender and the recipient. That’s why we devote so much attention to making sure our gift baskets and floral arrangements are special, unique and creative, and that’s why our websites, www.giftbasketsbytina.com and www.roadrunnerflorist.com offer flowers and gift baskets you won’t find anywhere else on the ‘net.

Tell us what you think! Does that make us Artisans?

SUPER BOWL XLIX

Super Bowl XLIX

We are so excited to be hosting Super Bowl XLIX at University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ on February 1.

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Superbowl stadium" />

Are you coming to Phoenix for the Big Game?

I’d love our Arizona Cardinals to host Super Bowl XLIX on their home field. But I just don’t know if they can pull it off with their 3rd or 4th string quarterback.

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Arizona Cardinals logo" />

And I always have hope for my beloved and home-town Denver Broncos.

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Denver Broncos logo" />

But this year there are so many fantastic teams in the hunt to come to Phoenix for Super Bowl XLIX.

There’s Seattle  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Seattle Seahawks logo" />  and there’s Dallas   <img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Dallas Cowboys logo" />

There’s Detroit  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Detroit Lions logo" />                   and there’s Green Bay  <img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Green Bay Packers logo" />

There’s New England   <img src="image.gif" alt="This is the New England Patriots logo" />       and there’s Cincinnati <img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Cincinatti Bengals logo" />

There’s Pittsburgh   <img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Steelers logo" />      and there’s <img src="image.gif" alt="This is the Colts logo" />

When you’re ready to sit back and enjoy the game in your fancy football chair,  furniture (courtesy of Veronica of Casa Vilora Interiors) , order your family pizza and pull out all the snacks, then you need to contact me at 602-246-1271 (888-446-1271) www.giftbasketsbytina.com and order your favorite team’s football gift basket!

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is a cards basket unwrapped" />

No matter which team you’re cheering for, we in Arizona are proud to be hosting this amazing sporting event. We welcome you to the Valley of the Sun, in person or on TV, and we hope you enjoy the Super Bowl as much as we do!’

Which team are you hoping will play in the Super Bowl this year? Post your answer here on our blog, and then share this on your google+ page, your facebook page, Pinterest or other social media!

Basket Express | What is Different

Basket Express | What is Different

So often we’re asked, Basket Express? What is Different? Of course what people are very nicely trying to say is: Why should I order my gift baskets from Basket Express?

Let me tell you why!

Each gift basket is custom designed just for you! That means you can choose the theme, the contents, the delivery date, and even the price!

That means the people who receive a gift basket from Basket Express are really getting an expression of YOU.

At Christmas, that means each gift basket from Basket Express is ready for Santa to put under the tree, topped with a hand-made Christmas bow and filled with the aroma of Christmas greens! I know, you can smell them from there, can’t you?

If you haven’t yet discovered the joys of the difference between gift baskets from “the other guys” and Basket Express, you’re in for a very special treat!

Corporate America uses Christmas to give thanks to their clients, customers and friends. We love to share in that excitement with you. It’s a lot more fun to let us add your personalized advertising specialties than it is to go to a big box store and pick something off the shelf that’s about as unique as, well, a table. Gift baskets from Basket Express are individually designed, loaded with great goodies (such as fresh fruit, gourmet cheese, crackers, sausage, chocolates, truffles, cookies and more) and yes, we are happy to add your business card, your calendars, your pens and pencils before we deliver gift baskets just for you.

We know and love our customers like family (more about that after the holidays).
