This September, be sure to add Grandparents Day to your calendar! On the second Sunday of the month, this day is set aside to celebrate all of the grandmothers and grandfathers we cherish so dearly. Spend time together, make or bring them gifts, and shower them with attention. After all, that was the intention behind this National day, started in the 1970s in West Virginia as a way to simply bring family together to enjoy one another. For a special surprise this year, Peoples Flowers suggests that you discover your grandparents favorite flowers (and why) and bring them a special arrangement full of these blooms.
For instance, if carnations were always grandmother’s favorite, bring her a gorgeous bouquet of A Dozen Carnations. This pink, pink, pink design is so sweet and can be full of meaning when paired with a great story or memory. Give grandparents the honor and respect they deserve and make lasting memories.
Showing love for grandparents and allowing them to dote on their children’s children is a privilege that should be revered. The memories made through these relationships will last for generations as grandchildren one day pass their legacy on to their own children and grandchildren. Talk to the floral experts at Peoples Flowers about ways to create or maintain family traditions that include a favorite or symbolic flower.
