International Women's Day, celebrated on March 8th, is right around the corner! With its roots dating back to the early 1900s, this holiday is as popular internationally as Valentine's Day. Rather than being a romantic celebration, IWD is an occasion to celebrate all of the special women in your life - be it a mother, a wife, a daughter, a friend or a coworker!
Flowers accompany us in every occasion and milestone, with different flowers having a language of their own. As far back as the 18th century, flower enthusiasts have been dissecting the meaning of flower varieties and colors, emphasizing the idea of "saying it with flowers". The perfect variety for this occasion is one that celebrates love, honor, respect and achievement. Tulips and sunflowers both represent opportunity and achievement, so it would be appropriate to mix a few of these beauties into the bouquet. You may also want to consider your relationship with the recipient when choosing the appropriate flowers. Daisies are ideal for a friendly sentiment, while stunning red roses scream romance.
Above all, this day is about celebrating female accomplishments and progression! Mark your calendars and plan ahead to make this March 8th a moment to show appreciation to all the special women in your life!Back to Top
