As autumn approaches, families often find themselves inundated with numerous exciting events. From back to school preparations to Labor Day picnics, it is easy to overlook one of the most important holidays of all: Grandparent’s Day. For so many families, grandparents are those wonderful family members that can offer assistance and advice as well as a bit of extra candy or a good laugh. What better way to show them how important they are and how much they mean to the family than by giving them the perfect flowers or arrangements to celebrate their special day?
The perfect types of flowers
There are several different types of flowers that work wonderfully as gifts for Grandparent’s Day. It is the end of the summer, which means that both summer and fall blooms will work exceptionally well.
Sunflowers offer brilliant, beautiful colors that can help bring a bit of light indoors. Their rich yellows and browns easily call to mind the colors of summer while also providing the perfect leadway into fall. Sunflowers are also traditionally used to signal adoration, which can be a great message to pass along to a beloved grandparent. When they are the focal point of any arrangement, or if they are given by themselves, they will easily light up the eyes and homes of any recipient.
Lilies are another wonderful flower option for Grandparent’s Day bouquets because they can come in a wide range of colors, making them easy to match with a number of other flowers. For example, pairing orange lilies with bright yellow sunflowers can be an excellent combination. Lilies are also a classic favorite flower of many people, reminding them of warm weather and natural beauty. When they are included in bouquets or arrangements, they tend to look stunning.
Roses are a classic flower for showing love. Traditionally, pink roses demonstrate admiration and appreciation, while yellow signal friendship, and red, a passionate love. Regardless of whether or not the buyer chooses to abide by these traditional meanings, most recipients will love receiving roses as a sign of love. Roses are also wonderful because they are very versatile. They can be given as a bouquet by themselves or as a part of a multi-flower arrangement.
When it comes to Grandparent’s Day, giving a beautiful arrangement of flowers can be the perfect gift to let these family members know how much they are loved and appreciated. Take the time to carefully consider the above options and select the one that will work best based upon personalities and preferences.
