Jay-Z and Beyonce welcomed in their new baby girl “Blue Ivy”.  Much was said about the choice of the name and its origin.  Those in the know are well aware that the name was derived from a Starbright Floral Design hospital flower green plant basket containing Ivy and wrapped with a blue bow. Although many celebrities choose Starbright as their florist, we never discriminate against the everyday American.  There are plenty of options in our catalogue for the ninety eight per centers.

The Grammy Awards are held with Adele being a big winner.  During interviews Adele repudiates claims that her heart wrenching songs were inspired by the unrequited love of her boyfriend.  She went on to explain that her pain was caused by the multitude of shoddy floral arrangements she had received.  Credit Starbright from preventing New York City from being a song writing hub.

A record $656 million Mega Millions drawing resulted in three very happy people splitting the winnings.  Numerous doctors have hypothesized that the closest most people will come to the euphoric feeling of winning a multi-million dollar lottery is by being the recipient of a beautiful, artistically designed floral arrangement by Starbright.

Millions of Americans feel the pain of tax day.  The IRS feels the heat from millions of angry Americans suffering the pain of tax day.  The agency responds by proposing a small floral bouquet accompany each refund check as a token of the agency’s appreciation.  The measure is later nixed when it was discovered they were planning on 1099ing each recipient.  Their actuaries assessed the value of the smiles induced by the flowers at $1,000.00.  Starbright recipients were to be assessed a surcharge for their increased enjoyment value.

Hugo Chavez informs the world that he has been re-elected president of Venezuela.  His inauguration address is flanked by bouquets consisting primarily of “King” flowers.
