Still Time to Order Flowers for Grandparents Day!

Grandparents Day FlowersGrandparents Day will be here soon!

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.



  1. Hi. I am an aspiring floral designer. I am taking coursese and have had the wonderful opportunity to work with a florist and event planning company assisting with wedding floral arrangements. Do you have any advice on career paths and how I may get there? I would also be open to other careers that support the floral industry. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!

  2. Meryl there was a lively discussion on the FSN Facebook page. Here are the takeaways

    1) As with every industry, it has its ups and downs.
    2) A great support system like a florist association or mentor can help you navigate the industry.
    3) If you are passionate about floral design it will be a rewarding profession.
    4) The best way to learn the ins and outs of the industry is to work for a flower shop in your area.
    5)floral design careers are not limited to retail shops, think lateral industries like hospitality, event planners, interior design or store staging.

    The biggest takeaway is do what you love and always look for the opportunity to learn from others and share your experience.

    You might also consider finding a wholesaler or grower who needs some with some design experience. Good Luck and keep us posted on how thing turn out for you.
