The American holiday of Grandparent’s Day was founded in 1978 as a way to honor and show love and respect to our beloved Grandparents. It is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day, and this year, Grandparent’s Day will be on Sunday, September 7th. Have you decided how you’re going to mark this occasion?
One of the best ways to send good cheer and show someone you care is with flowers. The type of flowers you send will depend upon your grandparent’s tastes and preferences; do you know their favorite flower, or at least their favorite color? This can influence your flower choice for them. Do they enjoy the changing colors and textures of autumn, or do they prefer the brighter blooms and colors of summer? Since Grandparent’s Day falls on the threshold between summer and autumn, either of these directions can be appropriate for a floral gift.
Bright Summer Colors
It’s technically still summer through September 22, and if your grandparents love bright colors and big blooms, a summer flower arrangement can be the perfect Grandparent’s Day gift. Sunshine Squared and A Perfect Day blend the gorgeous sunflower with various summer blooms. For an even brighter impact, the Rainbow Gladiolus Bouquet features an array of red, orange, purple, pink, yellow, fuchsia and lavender gladioli.
Autumn Flower Arrangements
While Autumn technically doesn’t begin until September 23, it isn’t too early to ring in the fall season with an autumn arrangement. Autumn themed bouquets offer fall colors, textures, vases and looks that mark the season with style. Autumn arrangements feature rich yellows, oranges, reds along with earth tones for an autumn feel your grandparents will love.
An Autumn Day arrangement combines orange lilies, yellow tulips, orange roses and hydrangea in a glass cube to make your grandparents’ day. Autumn Cheer is a bouquet of rich, bright yellows and golds, and Sunrise Sunset celebrates autumn with a burst of warm orange and gold blossoms in a modern glass vase. For a more subtle and delicate look, Autumn Kiss brings light orange and white petals together in an elegant autumn bouquet.
This Grandparent’s Day, show them how much you care with a beautiful summer or autumn flower arrangement. Whether they prefer bright and bold colors or the earth tones of autumn, there’s a perfect bouquet to make their day.
