Founded by Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade in the 1970s, Grandparents Day was created as a means of honoring grandparents while giving grandparents the opportunity to show love to their children’s children. Of course, children also become aware of the amazing strength, wisdom and knowledge their grandparents’ generation can offer, which is another benefit to celebrating Grandparents Day. This year on the 2nd Sunday in September, Ah Sam Florist recommends bringing one of our beautiful arrangements to your favorite grandparents while you create memories that will last for generations.

Grandparents Day is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day, a day set aside to honor the very special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren. This is a wonderful opportunity to teach children about the strength, information and guidance older generations can offer to their families and communities. The founder of the day, Marian McQuade, wanted Grandparents Day to be a family day. She envisioned families enjoying each other in small gatherings, holding family reunions, or participating together in community events.
On this day, grandparents are encouraged to share their hopes, dreams, and values; while families can use the opportunity to shower their loved ones with appreciation. If you want to honor the matriarchs and patriarchs in your family, call the floral experts at Ah Sam Florist. Read More about Sending Flowers on Grandparents Day
