For many people though some of the happiest times in their lives are not when they received a gift, but when they spent quality times with the ones they love. This Grandparents Day try to make a weekend trip to visit them. Ask your grandma how to knit or how to cook one of her classic recipes. Go fishing with your grandpa at his favorite fishing hole. Sit down with them to ask about their heritage and some of their favorite stories from the past. Taking time out of your busy schedule to make memories with your grandparents is a gift they will always remember.

Your grandparents have always been there for you and now it’s time to say thank you.

Give Flowers for Grandparent’s Day

Grandparent’s Day is different from a holiday like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Unlike mom and dad who showed you the importance of eating your vegetables, your grandparents made sure you left their house with your face covered in chocolate or sticky from some other candy. When your parents were angry, or you felt you couldn’t talk to them about an important subject, your grandparents were the ones who listened. They were the ones in whom you confided your innermost secrets and the ones who offered you wisdom instead of judgement. .

This is their day. Aren’t they deserving of some beautiful flowers?

Natural Beauty

Flowers and living plants make the perfect gifts. Grandma will love some gorgeous blooms to set out as a centerpiece or to decorate her sitting room. A living plant can decorate her back porch or hang in the kitchen to liven the place up a bit. Grandpa will enjoy a themed arrangement depicting his interests or a lovely plant to compensate for the grease and grime in his workshop.

Keeping It Local

And when you’re buying flowers this Grandparent’s Day, don’t forget to keep it local. Your local florist will do an amazing job, you can actually speak to her face-to-face to ensure you get exactly what you’re looking for and you’re putting money back into the local economy. What’s not to love? And if you don’t know exactly what you want, let these floral artists have their way and you’ll have something that grandma and grandpa are sure to love!

This Grandparents Day, show your love with flowers!

Labor Day is a great holiday for flowers because it, like flowers, is for everyone. It’s a day to celebrate the contribution of the nation’s workers, and aren’t we all workers? Yes, I think we are. So buy some flowers for yourself. Buy some for your family. Buy some for everybody!

3. Patriot Day – September 11th

A day to honor and commemorate those lost on September 11, 2001. Flowers are not only a celebration of happiness. They can also be beautiful memorials and natural bringers of comfort. A floral gift is the perfect way to say, “I remember.”

4. First Day of Autumn – September 23rd

The sweltering heat of summer is finally giving way to cooler temperatures. A lovely bouquet is always the perfect way to welcome in fall’s explosion of color. The leaves turn, the harvest is gathered and Mother Nature prepares for a long winter’s nap.

5. Gold Star Mother’s Day – September 28th

A day to honor those mothers who lost a son or daughter serving in the armed forces. It’s a beautiful memorial fitting of a beautiful floral arrangement.

How To Say “Happy Grandparents Day” To Grandma & Grandpa

In my family, grandparents rule the roost. The child in good with the grandparents need never want for another thing. They are protective, loving, gentle, and supportive. They rule their homes with iron fists and open hearts. I adore my grandparents and want only the best for them. We recently started celebrating Grandparents Day with them as a way of bringing the families together again during the year. My remaining grandmother and grandfather are in their early 80s. After that many years of receiving gifts for various occasions it gets kind of hard to give one that they’ll really like. I’ve figured out the answer for them though. I have decided to send flowers to my grandmother with a very sweet Grandparents Day card message attached. My grandfather, a farmer, is receiving a plant instead but with the same message of love.

Those not so skilled in verse may struggle to find the right way to say what is on their hearts. Grandma and Grandpa know that they are loved, but what combination of words expresses the depth of this love with any kind of fervor? What Grandparents Day card message says it all but in the space of a little enclosure card? Instead of spending hours looking for the perfect message, spend the day enjoying time with your grandparents. They’ll love the gift because you sent it, but a special message like those below help make it their favorite gift yet. With this list of Grandparents Day card messages compiled by local florists, it is easy to find the message that you need when sending flowers to grandma and grandpa.

Still Time to Order Flowers for Grandparents Day!

Grandparents Day is Sept. 8th, 2013

Grandparents Day is the perfect time to show your grandparents what they mean to you and your family.  Mothers and Fathers Day are always big celebrations for showing that we care, so forgetting about Grandparents Day this year isn’t an option.

In 1978, President Jimmy Carter dedicated the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. As it is a nationally recognized holiday, let’s take the time to honor our family and learn about ours roots. Consider visiting with your grandparents and listening carefully to those oft-told stories. Ask questions that dig deeper about a time that is quickly disappearing. Our children learn about their heritage and gain respect for their elders during these visits so make it a good one. Have grandma write down her favorite recipe or have grandpa show you his coin collection. You’ll be happy to make some new memories.

Be There Even If You Are Here

On a day set aside for family, we want so much to be together. But if you can’t be there in person, flowers are a perfect expression of your feelings of love and tenderness. Sending flowers for Grandparents Day can create a beautiful presence in a home and can convey what words can not. The tradition of sending flowers is a way of being right next to your loved ones when you are far away. Include a touching card message to complete the thought.

Reaching Out

Our elders everywhere deserve appreciation! Don’t forget about an older neighbor whose children can’t visit or those residing in a nursing home. A simple gesture of flowers can mean the world to someone who is alone on this special day.  Celebrate this holiday with love that reaches further than your own door.

Grandparent’s Day is the time of year we get to spoil our Gram-gram and Pop-pop like no other. We go all-out for Mothers and Fathers Day; you can’t forget your grandparents who go all-out for you.

Grandparent’s Day is about honoring our family, but it’s also about learning from them and where you came from. Does your grandmother know a special skill or recipe? Spend time with her and learn it together as a family. Listen as a group to Grandpa’s stories as he tells you of a different time that has been all-but forgotten. This can be especially significant to small children who are learning about respect for their elders and their heritage.

Family Togetherness

Most importantly, this holiday is about family love and togetherness. Even if you can’t physically be together on Grandparent’s Day, making time to talk or express your feelings for them is so important. Flowers for Grandparent’s Day often say what words do not. This traditional gift is perfect to take to your grandparents, or a convenient way to send them a thoughtful gift from afar. Need Grandparent’s Day card messages?

Helping Others

A simple visit with uplifting flowers can mean more than you will ever know. Keep these grandparent’s in mind as you celebrate this holiday.
