Since 1979, we’ve set aside the second Sunday in September for Grandparents Day, a day to honor and revere our grandparents, or those who fill that role in our lives. This day is especially significant for children, since it teaches them how to communicate with people from another generation. Learning to listen to people with different perspectives, with a level of wisdom they don’t understand, is an enriching experience for any child. The floral artists at Blossom Flower Shops have some great arrangements for you to share with the grandparents in your life. Read More about Floral Traditions To Pass Down »
Is there anyone in our lives who hold a more special place than grandparents? No matter what name we give them, or where they live - we cherish these very special members of the family. That is why setting aside a day to celebrate them seems like a great idea to us!
Grandparents Day is September 10 and was originally the idea of a woman named Marian McQuade. A mother and grandmother herself, Marian didn't envision a commercial holiday, rather she thought that a day to bring the generations together would allow us to share stories, impart wisdom and teach history. It was also an opportunity for younger generations to show respect, love, and gratitude to their families. Blossom Flower Shops appreciates the idea of bringing people together and celebrating family, and have the perfect Grandparents Day flowers for the occasion.
