It’s officially autumn and the holiday season will be upon us before we know it. With the arrival of November comes not only cooler days but also many excuses to celebrate this month with friends, family, comfort foods, and of course, flowers. Here are some special days to mark on your calendar this month so you remember to send flowers to your favorites!

Forget-me-not Day, November 10

There are two ways we can interpret Forget-Me-Not Day. It can be a day to remember the special people in your life and remind them that you are always thinking of them. It can also be a day to celebrate the beautiful Forget-Me-Not flowers! These tiny blue flowers are often overlooked for bigger blooms, so it is symbolic if you compare it to friendships that may be overlooked. Today is the perfect day to remember friends and the little things in life.

Veteran’s Day, November 11

Veteran’s Day is a special day set aside to honor and remember all those who served. Unlike Memorial Day, which is a day of remembrance, Veteran’s Day is a day to honor veterans who are still living. Take time to tell a veteran you know that you appreciate the sacrifices they made and invite them to share their stories with you.

World Kindness Day, November 13

World Kindness Day is recognized across the globe as a day to show that we can think about others more than ourselves, and make the world a better place by doing so. Whether you choose to help someone older than you, give someone a compliment, volunteer in your community, or send someone flowers, every act of kindness counts on this day!

Thanksgiving, November 24

Whether you’re a hosting the big day or traveling to visit friends and family, Thanksgiving is a day to eat, drink, and be thankful. Flowers make the perfect host or hostess gift as well as a spectacular centerpiece.

November Birthdays

The best birthday gifts are those that seem out of the blue or have an element of surprise. If you’re stuck deciding what birthday gift to buy that special person in your life, score major points by sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers. We have three bouquet sizes to choose from so you can go big or even bigger!
