As Grandparents Day approaches, we have some delightful ideas for how children and grandparents can spend time together and foster their relationships. Try taking grandparents to their favorite on-stage musical or create a memory quilt with fabric from special moments in your family’s history. Ask grandparents to tell their favorite stories or memories to children and invite kids to ask questions and share their adventures with their grandparents. Griffin’s Floral Design also suggests beginning the whole day with flowers. What is your grandmother’s favorite type? Does she have a story to go with it? Delight her with a bouquet and the memories that come with it this Grandparents Day. Read More about Fostering Connections Through Floral Traditions
Grandparents Day is an annual opportunity to honor the legacy and history in our families, as well as to celebrate the keepers of the stories - our grandparents! Established in 1978, the holiday was the brainchild of Marian McQuade, a wife and mother who sought to create a time set aside for these special relationships. Far from looking for a commercial event, it was McQuade's vision that the day would be observed with family gatherings and reunions. Inherent in the times together, she hoped there would be mutual love and appreciation for all of the generations which comprised a family. She also felt that it was important for the younger generations to really get to know and love the matriarchs and patriarchs of the family.
If you are looking for a special way to honor them, Grandparents Day floral arrangements from Griffin's Floral Design are a great place to begin ! Read More about Grandparents Day Floral Arrangements
