Grandparent’s Day falls on the Sunday after Labor Day every year, and for the year 2015, it will be celebrated on September 13. Do you know how you’ll show your grandparents your love and gratitude on this special day this year?
While the date of this holiday was designated an official U.S. holiday by President Jimmy Carter back in 1979, the idea for Grandparent’s Day actually came from a woman named Marian McQuade. Mrs. McQuade and her husband were blessed with numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren in their family, inspiring her to create a special holiday to honor grandparents all over the country.
Giving Flowers for Grandparent’s Day
Flowers are a beautiful and thoughtful way to show appreciation and care, and they are the perfect gift for Grandparent’s Day. Here are some flower gift ideas for honoring those who have given us so much wisdom, kindness and unconditional love throughout our lives:
Tropical blooms such as orchids, birds of paradise, anthurium, ginger, and protea can light up a room and bring an exotic, unexpected feel to Grandparent’s Day gift giving. The Beach-Side Paradise arrangement combines all of these tropical flowers in a classy clear cube vase with sand and seashells to bring an island escape to anyone, anywhere.
The rose is a universal symbol of love, and giving roses for Grandparent’s Day is sure to show them how much you care. Roses come in just about any color you can imagine, so there’s definitely an arrangement and color scheme your grandparents will love. A dozen roses will always make a big impact; however roses also look amazing mixed with other flowers like stargazer lilies or daisies for a more varied effect.
The large, radiant sunflower shines positive energy just like the sun shines its brilliant light. A large, textured center surrounded by an abundance of golden petals brings the best in late summer and early autumn resplendence. This flower lights up a room like few other flowers and is perfect for bringing cheer on Grandparent’s Day. It can be sent in a sunflowers-only bouquet or in a blended arrangement with other colorful flowers for a truly stylish effect.
Everyone loves to receive flowers, and they can make the perfect gift for your grandparents on Grandparent’s Day (or any time of year). Consider these flower gift ideas for the upcoming Grandparent’s Day holiday, and contact Bagoy’s Florist when you’re ready to place your order.
