The fall holiday season starts to heat up in early September, just as temperatures are starting to cool down. After Labor Day, the first official holiday on the calendar is Grandparents’ Day, which is celebrated on the first Sunday of September after Labor Day. Grandparents are known to spoil their grandchildren, but this is the perfect occasion to send some of that admiration back to them. Griffin’s Floral Design features beautiful flowers for Grandparents’ Day.
How Do We Celebrate Grandparents’ Day
Just like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, the rules when it comes to celebrating Grandparents’ Day are usually “anything goes.” However, imagining something special that would appeal to your grandparent or grandparents would make the most meaningful impact for the holiday.
Since former-President Jimmy Carter signed an official proclamation stating that the first Sunday after Labor Day would be Grandparents’ Day, families have figured out some pretty creative ways to honor their grandparents. From traditional flowers to digital picture displays to Sunday brunch at the country club, there are endless ways to celebrate the holiday.
In virtually all cases, grandparents are absolutely delighted to receive any sort of gift, even if it’s not particularly creative or special. A simple card and a small bouquet is simple, beautiful, and convenient when you’re not in the same geographical location as your family.
Choosing Flowers for Grandparents’ Day
As with any gift of flowers, there are many ways you can go about choosing the perfect bouquet. The official flower of Grandparents’ Day is the forget-me-not, but it’s usually tough to find that flower in the late summer or early fall since they tend to appear in the spring. Something festive and cheerful is a style you’ll want to consider.
The fall signals the arrival of chrysanthemums, so a brightly colored tin full of orange garden mums would brighten any grandparent’s afternoon. If you have small children, and you’re giving their grandparents a gift, you might think about adding handmade cards from the kids. A grandparent will cherish any personal gift from family.
If you’re interested in an adventurous gift for Grandparents’ Day, you might consider a tropical flower like an orchid or some Anthuriums. Imagine surprising a grandparent with a graceful and towering basket of gerbera daisies and tropical Anthuriums.
Remember to celebrate the grandparents in your life this year on Grandparents’ Day 2015, the first Sunday in September after Labor Day.
