It’s a new year, which means it’s not only time to reset the calendars and come up with a new resolution, but it’s also time to plan for new holidays and occasions. And one critical aspect of many holidays and occasions are floral arrangements. Flowers add a nice flair to any holiday or special event, which is why it’s important that this detail is not left out of the planning process.
For your convenience, here’s a look at some of the top floral holidays in 2014:
Crucial Floral Days:
- Valentine’s Day, February 14: Floral holidays don’t get any more important than Valentine’s Day. Be sure to order your flowers in advance to avoid long lines and wait times on the day itself.
- Mother’s Day, May 11: Show mom the love she deserves in a nice floral arrangement. Since Mother’s Day always falls in the spring, it’s a great time to take advantage of spring and summer flowers.
- Sweetest Day, October 18: Another important floral holiday, arguably only third place to Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.
Important Flower Days:
- Easter, April 20: Easter is another holiday where you can take advantage of bringing home a spring floral arrangement, whether it’s just to decorate your home for the occasion or to use it as a table centerpiece.
- Secretary’s Day, April 23: Flowers are a great way to show appreciation for the hard-working secretaries that don’t get very much of the credit in business operations.
- Thanksgiving, November 27: Pick a fall arrangement for this day, and don’t forget about the cornucopias and other Thanksgiving décor.
- Christmas Day: Celebrate the joyous day with red and green arrangements. Plain white flowers also make for a nice floral arrangement.
It’s important to note that these were just a few of the important floral holidays in 2014. There are many more – and many more ways that you can send and purpose flowers than what’s listed above. For example, on any major holiday, a nice gesture is to send flowers to a friend or family member that must work that day. It lets them know that they’re appreciated and that they’re being thought of while most of the rest of the workforce has the day off. And, of course, you don’t have to use holidays as an excuse to send flowers to someone, flowers always make for a nice surprise, no matter what the occasion.
