Holiday Highlight: Grandparents Day

Each year on the first Sunday after Labor Day, we celebrate some very special people in our lives: our grandparents! This year, Grandparents Day falls on Sunday, September 11th, and it’s the perfect time to show your grandparents some love and let them know you’re thinking of them!


Marian McQuade is officially recognized as the founder of Grandparents Day in the United States. Her goal was to educate young people about the contributions of seniors throughout history. She encouraged “adopting” a grandparent to learn more about their lives, challenges, and desires for the future. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter officially signed a proclamation designating the first Sunday after Labor Day each year National Grandparents Day. It began being celebrated the following year in 1979.

Blue Flowers

The official flower of Grandparents Day is the Forget-Me-Not, which is typically grown in gardens. If you want to send a beautiful gift from your local florist, why not stick to this color scheme and send your grandparents something blue? Blue flowers stand for hope and trust, making them an excellent choice for your grandparents!

Peach or Yellow Roses

Roses are among the most popular flowers worldwide, and your grandparents will love receiving them! Peach roses show sincerity and gratitude, while yellow ones send a message of positivity and appreciation. You can’t go wrong with any color you want to send, but we think these two colors are perfect choices for Grandparents Day!


Lilies are a showstopping addition to any arrangement! They can convey your devotion to your grandparents, as well as more specific meanings through color. Orange lilies display pride, while white lilies show admiration. Yellow lilies are perfect for showing admiration and loyalty. No matter which color you pick, your grandparents will love lilies!

Your grandparents will appreciate being thought of when you send them flowers this Grandparents Day! Contact your local florist today to pick out the perfect ones!
