Believe it or not, the fall is almost here. As everyone’s thoughts turn to cooler weather, fall sports and back to school, we still have one last opportunity to celebrate the lazy days of summer. The long Labor Day weekend, which culminates on the first Monday of September, is the official end-of-summer weekend – but that’s not how the holiday began. Originally conceived by the American labor movement, the day was created to give respect to workers across the country, to honor their social and economic achievements as it pertains to employment issues. The holiday commemorates the long American tradition of a dedicated and strong workforce.
If you are planning a holiday party for family or friends, simply call Ah Sam Flowers! To recognize the history of the day without being too overt, you may want to choose one of our beautiful floral arrangements in mixtures of the classic red, white and blue. The blues of Blissful Bouquet will evoke feelings of loyalty and integrity, while the red and white of Starry Eyed – featuring roses and lilies – speaks to the passion of those who paved the way before us.
Maybe you would prefer to celebrate Labor Day by extending your summer vacation for just a few more days! This floral arrangement of warm weather flowers is aptly called Summer Soiree, and exudes the color and whimsy of summer wildflowers, adding the perfect accompaniment to your picnic or barbecue.
Labor Day weekend is your chance to rest, relax and take a break from your busy life. Give Ah Sam a call and let us help you make your holiday party memorable . From patriotic to cheerful, Ah Sam of San Mateo will help you to choose the floral arrangement that best suits your idea of celebration.
