5 Reasons To Send Flowers August 16′

August gives us many reasons to celebrate those we love. Whether it be just because, to celebrate a birthday, or to congratulate someone, the reasons are truly endless! Flowers are the perfect gift for every occasion because they are guaranteed to bring a smile. Here are some special holidays you can celebrate in August!

1) International Friendship Day – August 7th

It is not every day that we get to thank our friends for the support and love they have shown over the years. The first Sunday in August is your chance to surprise a friend with a beautiful flower arrangement! They will feel extra loved knowing that you were thinking about them.

2) International Forgiveness Day – August 7th

Flowers are known for dissolving disputes and rekindling friendships. Take a step towards forgiveness by sending a flower arrangement on International Forgiveness Day. Your grand gesture will leave a lasting impression and will hopefully get the relationship back on track.

3) Middle Child’s Day – August 12th

Everyone knows that the middle child of a family tends to get overlooked. They are always compared to the oldest child and never given as much attention as the youngest. If you know someone that has had to struggle with being a middle child, show them that they are special to you by sending them flowers!

4) Back to School

Send your children or nieces and nephews back to school with a big smile on their face! A beautiful flower arrangement made especially for them will help get rid of those first day of school nerves. It may seem like a small gift but your support will mean the world to them!

5) Just Because Day – August 27th

The greatest gift is that which no one expects! Let your lover or a relative know that you are thinking about them by sending flowers on Just Because Day. This special day calls for acts of kindness. Sending a gift without a reason is the perfect way to spread happiness and cheer!

Head to your local florist and find the perfect arrangement for the occasion of your choice!

Administrative Professionals Day Gift Ideas

There’s no better gift than flowers to recognize the hard work of administrative professionals — well maybe time off …  But seriously, administrative professionals keep our businesses, churches, groups and other organizations moving.

April 24th (2013) is a day set aside for their appreciation — show them you care by sending something personalized just for them.

Many local florists offer some type of customizable gift basket options. Find out your administrative professional’s favorite candy or chocolates and send them a cute gift basket filled with his or her favorite sweets. If she prefer fruits and veggies, send her a fresh fruit basket. There are great skincare baskets filled with lotions, body sprays and bubble baths  you can send. Some florists even offer great themed baskets: Cat Lovers Baskets, Golf Baskets, Cooking Lovers Baskets, just to name a few.

Don’t think sending flowers is too old-fashioned either! People LOVE getting flowers… (I’m not just saying that because I have to!) Sending flowers to the office is a great way to say thank you for all your hard work. Coffee cup arrangements are FANTASTIC for office gifts. Sure, getting flowers will brighten someones day, but seeing the coffee cup their flowers came in every morning can really give them the sense of appreciation that we can all use in the mornings.

Birth Flowers For The Month Of July

Yesterday was my birthday and I received many lovely flowers and gifts over the course of the weekend. I have one friend in particular who believes every birthday present should truly represent the day. One year she got me a birthday newspaper — a copy of the New York Times on the day I was born. This year she gave me a beautiful larkspur flower arrangement. Larkspur (Consolida ajacis) is the birth month flower for July.
Larkspur is a beautiful annual flower and a cousin of delphinium. This flower has been cultivated as a fresh cut flower. It also makes a great dried flower or garden plant. The mid to dark foliage is feathery, soft and downy. The upright blooms are similar to the blooms of delphinium. The flowers are densely packed on the larkspur bloom spikes. The color palette for larkspur contains pastels shades of pinks and rich tones of pink, white and violet blue.

If you have family or friends with a birthday this month try sending them a flower arrangement containing larkspur.

How do you celebrate July? Have you ever used larkspur the birth month flower as a way to celebrate the month?
