August Newsletter: Keeping It Classy

August 19th, 2014 | By: Ed Belly


The kids put on their backpacks. Mom and Dad give them a lift or make sure they get on the bus without incident. Teachers stare across their classrooms at a sea of new faces, excited to educate fresh, young minds. What’s missing from these images? Flowers! In a stressful first few weeks, a beautiful bouquet or magnificent arrangement can do wonders, and every person in this scenario is deserving.

So whether you’re a student, a parent, a teacher or just friends with some, give the gift of flowers and keep school classy!

Best Reasons to Send Flowers in August

August is a month of lesser known holidays, and that makes it a great month for flowers. Imagine the look on your friend, sister or favorite senior citizen’s face when you show up at their house with a gorgeous arrangement to honor them on a day they weren’t even aware existed? Priceless! So get ready to buy some blooms and spread some smiles!

#1 Senior Citizens Day – August 21st – This is the day to honor your favorite senior citizen through support and recognition of their achievements. What better way to do those things than with some heartwarming flowers? Don’t forget those people who supported you throughout your life, give them a smile!

#2. Back to School – This is an exciting time for students and teachers alike. A new year brings new opportunities, new challenges and new successes. Kick off their epic journey with a lovely arrangement straight from your local florist. After all, nothing says, “Welcome to your first day of school!” like some beautiful blooms.

#3. August Birthdays – Say, “Happy Birthday” with flowers! When someone’s birthday is in August, they already get to have pool parties and any other outdoor activity they might enjoy, but even though they won the birth-month jackpot, their day can still be made brighter by some gorgeous flowers from your local florist. Help make their big day perfect!

Season to Send Sunflowers

Flower Spotlight: Sunflowers

When you think of Summer, think of the sunflower!

Aptly named, the sunflower not only looks like a mini replica of the sun, but it is also heliotropic. That means its buds and leaves follow the sun as it travels across the sky. Once a bud has fully bloomed, it no longer follows the sun and instead always faces East where the sun rises every morning. The sunflower is native to the Americas, but that hasn’t impacted its rich history and symbolism.
