Ideas for Celebrating Women’s Day, March 8
Women’s Day, observed annually on March 8, is a time to express respect, appreciation and love and to celebrate achievements. It is a time to recognize the amazingly influential women throughout history and today – from business to politics to athletics to philanthropy to celebrity. And to celebrate the amazing women we interact with on a daily basis. Around the world, many people give flowers and other small gifts to their mothers, wives, grandmothers and daughters, as well as coworkers, teachers and friends in recognition of Women’s Day. Research at Rutgers University demonstrates flowers create instant delight and increase happiness and life satisfaction, making flowers a top choice for celebrations.
“Honor, respect and love translate so beautifully with flowers.”
These are some of our recommendations:
- Lovely Ladies. A fabulous flowering plant or a garden-style arrangement with greens and soft pastel hues – no matter what the flower – will send the message of love to your mom, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and daughters.
- Gal Pals. Flowers to show friends or neighbors that you appreciate them have a natural, just-picked feeling. Garden-style flowers or a bright bold color palette are fun and whimsical options. A basket with a mix of flowering and green plants delivered to her door or office is also a sure-fire winner.
- Professional Connections. Giving flowers to clients and employees is a sophisticated way to recognize workplace accomplishments, and a thoughtful way of saying “I appreciate all you do” to teachers and childcare professionals. A mixed floral arrangement of reds, rich oranges and fuchsias inspires and energizes. Another color combination is bright oranges and lime greens. Those colors together are contemporary, generate energy and excitement, and are perfect for showing thanks and appreciation.
- Wonderful Wife. Note your wife’s favorite flowers – the varieties at your wedding, flowers you sent her when you first started dating or the ones she buys for herself. What is her favorite color? Those flowers will have great meaning and impact.
