Ahhhhhh springtime…..the birds are chirping, the trees are budding and the flowers are blooming. And we are not just talking about outdoors! Here at Karin’s Florist, amazing new spring blooms are coming in every day as we prepare for a super busy time of year. April and May are big months for holidays where flowers are a long standing tradition. And we have you covered!
Don’t forget these very important dates:
Easter April 16: Lots of flowers are associated with Easter and some even have special meaning to celebrate the Christian holiday. For example, white lilies have long stood as a symbol of purity, hope, innocence and peace. The Easter lily is a biblical flower commonly associated with the resurrection of Christ.
Administrative Professionals Day April 26: Admin Day or also known as Secretaries day celebrates our hardworking secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists and other administrative professionals. It’s celebrated annually on the Wednesday during Administrative Professionals Week, the last full week of April. Typically administrative professionals are given flowers or gifts.
International Nurses Day May 12: Celebrated around the world each year on the anniversary of Florence Nightingale‘s birth, to mark the contributions nurses make to society. It’s also customary to send flowers to those brave and selfless nurses in your life.
Mother’s Day May 14: Who doesn’t love Mom? Mother’s Day is one of our biggest days of the year, up there with Valentine’s Day of course. According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, an estimated $2.4 billion was spent on Mother’s Day flowers in 2016
