For most of us, September marks the end of summer and the beginning of the school year. Many students are taking the next step and moving away to university campuses or to live on their own and sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers is a nice way to wish them luck and make them feel at home as they settle in.

There are also many other reasons to send flowers in the month of September  here are a few key dates to keep in mind this month so you can surprise someone special!

Labor Day - September 5

Dedicated to all of the hard-workers out there, Labor Day is the perfect occasion to show your appreciation for all of the dedicated work performed by someone close to you. We recommend The Ella, with its gorgeous red, white, and blue blooms.

Grandparent’s Day - September 11

Grandparent’s Day was established in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter and takes place on the Sunday after Labor Day every year. This is a day to let your grandparents know you’re thankful for their unconditional love. Flowers symbolize appreciation and are a wonderful way to honor these very special family members.

National Women’s Friendship Day - September 18

Ladies, this is a special day for you! National Women’s Friendship Day is fun way to celebrate the friendships we have with other women by spending time together or honoring them with a special surprise, such as flowers!

Wife Appreciation Day - September 18

The third Sunday of every September is also Wife Appreciation Day, a perfect day to honor the supportive, loving women in our lives. Sending a gift of fresh flowers is one thoughtful way to say, “Thanks for all that you do every day, I appreciate you!”

International Day of Peace - September 21

The International Day of Peace is an opportunity for all of us to come together to forward the ideals of and conditions for peace. Why not take this day to rekindle a past relationship with a friend or family member that perhaps has weakened over the years? A beautiful bouquet is the perfect way to tell someone you are thinking of them and send a message of peace.

National Good Neighbor Day - September 28

National Good Neighbor Day is the perfect opportunity to reward your good neighbors. Whether it’s lending a hand or watching your home or pets while you were away, send your favorite neighbors a bright floral arrangement for their home to thank them for being there for you!

We tend to associate sending flowers with big life events, but don’t forget the simple, fun occasions that keep life enjoyable and unpredictable!
