Sweetest Day is quickly approaching on the third Saturday of October. For nearly 100 years, people across the Midwest have used the holiday to show their love and appreciation for others in their lives. Whether that special someone is a romantic partner or a lifelong best friend, finding the perfect gift can sometimes be a challenge. Flowers have been used as a gift of romance and appreciation for generations, making them an excellent choice for those seeking a gift for Sweetest Day. Here are a few guidelines that people can use to begin finding the perfect flower.
Rose arrangements are a classic gift to show love and appreciation. They are loved for their beauty and the deep rich colors they offer. Yellow roses, for example, tend to indicate friendship and affection. White roses are considered bridal roses and typically represent young love. Lavender flowers have a strong association with love and send the message of love at first sight. Of course, the classic, beautiful red rose is a fantastic, traditional, and always appreciated symbol of romantic love. There are few romantic gestures more universally adored than a bouquet of a dozen red roses.
Orchids have become increasingly possible in the past few years because of their unique beauty and incredible diversity. They have the added benefit of being relatively easy to care for, and as a potted plant, they can potentially last for years. All of these traits make them an exceptionally good choice for a Sweetest Day. The potted plant will add to the symbolism of the gift because the plant is also long lasting, just like the relationship. Orchids also often come in smaller pots, making them perfect for countertops, window sills, mantels, and other areas around the home. Orchids also come in a wide range of colors, meaning that there is a choice available for about anyone.
Sweetest Day always falls in October, and this time of year is known for the stunning, earthy hues. Selecting flowers that reflect this traditional spectrum of colors can also be a wonderful gift idea. Oranges, reds, yellows, and greens are always beautiful options.
