Fabulous Flowers for Friendship Day

Don’t forget the flowers this Sunday, August 3rd. It’s Friendship Day!

Friendship Day: Origins

It began in 1930 as a holiday promoted by Hallmark. It struggled to catch on and was all but dead by the mid-1940’s. But even though it was never the card-giving holiday that greeting card companies had hoped it would be, the holiday found some purchase in Asia which kept it alive to more modern times.

In 1998 in an effort to revitalize the holiday, Nane Annan, wife of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, declared Winnie the Pooh as the world’s Ambassador of Friendship. The promotional event was co-sponsored by the U.N. Department of Public Information and Disney Enterprises, and co-hosted by Kathy Lee Gifford. There is some debate on whether Friendship Day should be celebrated on July 30th or the first Sunday in August, but whichever day you choose to honor, flowers are inarguably the gift you should be giving!

Friendship Day: Now

Friendship Day is considered the day to say, “Thank you” to the only person you had to call when your car died on the side of the road, the one who stood in line with you for hours to buy tickets to see your favorite band and the one who offered a sympathetic ear when you broke up with your significant other. She is your chosen family, the one who is part of your life because you have loved each other for years, have so much in common, and share so many memories that losing her would be like losing your heart.

Friendship Day is about giving back to the one(s) who has given so much. It’s about making a new memory, sharing a new experience, and creating a new tradition.

Always Flowers

When looking for the perfect gift, flowers are always the right choice. They provide so many options that incorporate other gift giving ideas. Want to get your bestie a gift card for their preferred music site? It’s a great idea, but gift cards don’t offer much in their presentation. To jazz it up, bring that gift card to your local florist and let them put together a themed arrangement! They can base it off your friend’s favorite band or just music in general. And that’s just one of a multitude of great gift-giving ideas!

Your local florist is a flower artist. They can create something you’ll love and personalize it so that it’s not just a gift for your friend, it’s a gift that symbolizes your friendship. So contact your local florist and see what they can put together for your Friendship Day celebration!
