From Houston to Bellaire, teachers are preparing for the return of students after a long and relaxing summer. As exciting as it is, back-to-school can be a tough adjustment for everyone involved. Whether or not the children are ready to come back, the educators have been decorating classrooms and writing lesson plans throughout the summer months. In order to thank them for all their work already, as well as to wish them a great school year, classroom gifts are the perfect way to let them know you support them.
Encouragement comes in many forms, be it flowers, plants or gift baskets. For instance, these lovely calla lilies will make a dramatic addition to the teacher’s desk on the first day of school; you may also wish to send this graceful arrangement to the school administrators to display at the front desk to greet visitors as they enter. For a more simple display that will fit easily and elegantly on the teacher’s desk, this classic orchid plant will earn top grades.
Due to their ability to stimulate productivity and encourage better concentration, green plants make excellent classroom gifts. This desktop spathiphyllum, more commonly known as a peace lily, will filter toxins from the air – and will thrive when positioned in indirect sunlight. The kids will love watching the trademark white flower bloom, and this beautiful plant will likely become a classroom favorite. Potted attractively in moss and rocks, the teacher may even be able to use for a science lesson!
Don’t forget to send gifts to your college students as well – whether a green plant for their dorm room or a gourmet gift basket for late night studying! There are so many reasons at this time of the year to show your support and give good wishes. At Breen’s Florist, we would love to help.
