This June 8, show up to lunch (or dinner, or drinks) with something special in hand for your nearest, dearest friend. Peoples Flowers loves the spirit of National Best Friend’s Day, which devotes itself to celebrating those singular people who come into our lives and feel as if they’ve always been there. We can’t imagine not sharing our best days as well as our worst with our best friends, the ones who make us laugh harder than anybody else, the ones who show up for us no matter what’s going on in our lives.
Think back on your own graduation time and a few key moments are likely to stand out—crossing the stage to retrieve your diploma, celebrating with friends and family afterward, the feeling of complete accomplishment and the excitement of summer, college or a new job on the horizon. Peoples Flower Shops knows this is one of the most momentous occasions in our lives, and the flowers we both give and receive become a part of that memory. In many cases, these are the first flowers our young scholars will receive, which is why getting them right is so important.
At Peoples Flower Shops, we know how healing flowers and plants can be. We spend our days with them, and we’re knowledgeable about all the studies that point to their benefits. We observe them make people happy day after day, and we don’t mean just the recipient of a flower gift. We see how happy both the giver and the receiver are in a flower exchange, and that, friends, is exactly why you should be giving flowers to yourself.
Not every occasion calls for an exact flower design—sure, we have poinsettias at Christmas, tulips for spring and roses for Valentine’s Day, but at People’s Flower Shops, we know that there are a dozen meaningful flower exchanges that are personal to the people involved for every one of those expected flower exchanges. And sometimes, it’s these that are our favorite. We love to see how people style the transactions unique to them.
Ever wish there was a holiday intended exclusively for celebrating your best friends? Well we here at Peoples Flowers are here to tell you that now there is. It’s called Galentine’s Day, and while yes, this is a female-centric occasion (sorry fellas), the fact that it exists at all is a win for friendships everywhere.
First proposed in a 2010 episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope grabbed her gals and took them out to lunch, proclaiming it “only the best day of the year,” Galentine’s Day is meant to be celebrated on February 13th.
Here at Peoples Flowers, we’re always interested in innovative ways to give flowers. One unique concept that ensures your loved ones will always know how much you care is a monthly delivery of fresh, seasonal blooms, delivered to their doorstep without fail, 12 months out of the year.
