Sweetest Day is nearly here… How are you going to show the amazing people in your life just how special they are?
Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of October; for 2014, it falls on October 18. In some states, it was celebrated as long ago as the 1920s; these days, it’s somewhat of a later-year counterpart to Valentine’s Day. Ultimately, Sweetest Day is a time for expressing love and gratitude to those we hold dear in life. It isn’t just for your partner (although you should certainly remember them!) Anyone you care about is a candidate for Sweetest Day gift-giving, and flowers are an ideal way to show affection and care. Consider these flower gift-giving ideas for those you love on Sweetest Day:
The Classic Rose
Roses are always perfect for conveying deep love and affection. The red rose shows love, passion and commitment, but other colors can be perfect for friends, siblings or a parent. Pink, orange, yellow, or other pastel colors are also available and can send a message of care to friends and loved ones.
A Seasonal Touch
Sweetest Day arrives in mid-October, when autumn is in full swing. Sending an autumn-themed bouquet is a fun, seasonal way to show extended family, good friends and other non-romantic relationships you’re thinking of them. Autumn flowers include sunflowers and daisies, but any arrangement in autumn colors can bring warmth and radiance. An Autumn Delight bouquet is sure to delight them with stunning gerber daises, fresh hydrangeas and orange roses in a lovely fall-inspired vase. Spring Clear Vase With Hydrangea is bursting with life and color, featuring sunflowers, blue hydrangea, alstromerias, stargazer lilies, bells of Ireland and montecasino in a beautiful glass vase.
Orchids bring a unique, exotic vibe to any flower arrangement or gift gesture. They symbolize strength, passion and wisdom, and can send a powerful message this Sweetest Day. A Fall Orchid brings an elegant double bloom with autumn accents to your loved one. Red Skies at Night combines mokara orchids and mini pin cushions and is accented with mini coin greens.
The Bright, Bold Lily
The beautiful bloom and stately grace of the lily epitomizes class and charm. A Fashion Statement arrangement is gorgeous in pink tones with calla lilies, orchids, hydrangea and roses. Dreaming with Callas is a dreamy combination of pink mini calla lilies, white cymbidium orchids and green hydrangeas.
Sweetest Day is a time for remembering all those you hold dear in life. From your romantic partner to a sister, parent or best friend, sending flowers shows them you care and are thinking of them. Consider these stunning flower ideas when choosing a gift for your loved ones this Sweetest Day.
