This March 8, you’ll want to join the USA—and much of the rest of the world—in honoring the achievements of women young and old. International Women’s Day has been on the calendar since 1909, a historic chunk of time for an occasion that has been, in all ways, so ahead of its time. Here at Blossom Flower Shops we see IWD as a unique opportunity to celebrate the most courageous and inspiring women in your life, and one way to do that is through a gift of flowers.
If you can bring some symbolism into your flower gift, all the better. That becomes easy to do when you know a thing or two about IWD, like that it is associated with three colors, purple, green and yellow. Purple has long been affiliated with the women’s rights movement, dating back to the suffragettes, and indicates loyalty. Green is emblematic of growth, reflecting IWD’s progressive nature. And yellow, a late add, suggests a new dawn or dawning awareness. Flowers can bring in all of these colors, really speaking to the day’s spirit. Celebrate Your Day’s use of purple and green is a great example of that.
Remember to honor the most influential women in your life this International Women’s Day with a beautiful design of flowers.
