Although we don’t need an excuse to do nice things for other people, Sweetest Day does give us a wonderful opportunity. Originally established as a day to give chocolates and candies to the underprivileged, this regional holiday has grown to include any kind gesture that makes someone smile. This Sweetest Day, come to Schaaf Floral for the ideas and inspiration that you’ll need.
Did You Know? Sweetest Day is often thought of as a “lesser Valentine’s Day”, set aside for romantics and sweethearts. However, the day’s origin centered around the marginalized of society, and making everyone feel valuable. We think that is a sweet motivation.
A recent study by Rutger’s University showed that flowers make us happier. In fact, as soon as flowers arrive at the front door, our mood elevates and our well-being is enhanced. This makes floral designs the perfect gift for Sweetest Day. If you have a friend struggling through classes, or a loved one who is missing someone – the gift of a fresh bouquet of flowers is sure to make them smile.
Which flowers should you choose? We love bright and happy flowers, such as neon gerbera daisies, or pastel roses. From sunflowers to lilies, flowers have a universal appeal. Of course, if you would like to return to the origins of the holiday and send some chocolates or caramels as well, we have those too.
Another Idea We Love: Sweetest Day, at its heart, is about letting others know that they are important and they matter. Be sure to add a handwritten note so that your recipient will know just how special they are.
