Why Your Mom Deserves Flowers

We always send flowers for Mother’s Day but sometimes we tend to forget the reason behind the gift. You mom is special and it is important to think about why your mom deserves to be recognized. Consider these reasons when ordering your flowers this year.

She raised you
Raising a child never ends. Your mom went through pregnancy, the infant stage, the toddler stage, elementary years, the dreaded teenage years and your young adult life. When your mom gave birth she committed to raising you and her unwavering dedication deserves to be praised.

She has made sacrifices for you

Over time this holiday has become one of the largest workplace celebrations. This year the holiday falls on Wednesday, April 27. Have some fun in the office celebrating with these creative ideas!

  • Office party
    Everyone loves to take a break from their normal routine for a casual office party. Have lunch catered in from your staff’s favorite restaurant and spend time bonding with your co-workers. You could even plan team bonding games like truth and a lie, use what you have, or watch where you step. Playing games is a great way to liven up the party and get people involved.
  • Compliment board
    Before your administrative staff arrives to work, tape a poster board on the wall next to their desk. At the top of the poster board write, “We Appreciate You.” Throughout the day your employees can stop by and list the reasons they appreciate your administrative professionals hard work. This is a great way to keep your staff smiling and happy the entire day!
  • Flowers, of course!
    Flowers are the most common gift for Administrative Professionals Day. They make the perfect present because they can be displayed and admired for several days. Choose the recipients favorite flowers and colors and make sure to have them delivered early.
