Honor Achievements with Flowers on Women’s Day

Jan 28, 2016 02:31AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle




Flowers are given to celebrate achievements of all sizes, from celebrating a birthday to achieving a personal goal – such as buying a new home or getting a promotion. Commemorating meaningful moments is a thoughtful way of sending thanks, encouragement and recognition.

International Women’s Day, celebrated annually on March 8, is a contemporary way to honor the milestones of the women in your life. Women’s Day pays homage to the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world. According to a recent survey, in the past year, 40 percent of U.S. women have achieved a personal milestone, including overcoming a health issue, learning a new life skill or having a child.  

As the people important to you celebrate accomplishments of all sizes, consider that flowers are the one gift that Rutgers University research says makes people truly smile. And, on March 8, whether out of respect, appreciation or love – keep these flower-giving tips in mind:

Talk to your florist. Professional florists are experts in helping people express their feelings, so consult with your local florist to send the right gift to make a memorable impact on the recipient. Let them know if you have preferences for specific flowers or colors, but be open to creative suggestions you may not have thought of.

Consider her achievement. While you may not know exactly what you want, think about whether the occasion would warrant a more formal arrangement or a more casual, whimsical style. Is she likely to prefer more traditional or trendy flower designs?

Describe her personality. Convey her favorite hobbies or colors and other personal details so your florist can match the floral arrangement with the recipient's tastes.

Describe where the arrangement will be placed. Your florist can create an arrangement that complements the style and colors of a home, office or other space. This information can also help your florist determine the appropriate size of the arrangement and may influence the best type of flowers to celebrate the accomplishment.
