Women Appreciation Days 2016: Say it With Flowers

Monday, February 29th, 2016

The 8th of March this year is a day of dual celebration; not only is it Mother’s day, often the only day of the year many mothers and grandmothers are given the true appreciation they deserve for their family sacrifice, it also happens to be International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the social, cultural, economic and political achievement of women across the globe. As well as acknowledging the power, strength and equality women everywhere have gained and in some places, are still striving for, its focus also marks a call to action for accelerating international gender parity.

For daughters in search of lovely Mother’s Day flowers, wine, balloons and gifts, as well as those that want flowers delivered to a special lady for International Women’s Day, one of the nicest ways to show appreciation is with a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers as the main centrepiece. Daffodils, forsythias, scillas, tulips and pussy willows are all wonderful spring-time choices to create whimsical flower arrangements for the season.

Ideas can range from captivating full bouquets bursting with lilacs, fuschias and golden yellows, or a more modern take on flower-arranging using less flowers but taller, thicker, unusual stems in narrow, slender vases to create an artsy, bohemian feel to breathe some fresh life into a room. Mother’s day flowers, especially orchids and lilies, work especially well for a bohemian arrangement. Add a sentimental picture in a stone frame for a vintage, personal touch.

A selection of March 8 women’s day flowers can be mixed and matched online for the perfectionist who wants to create a truly unique women’s appreciation day gift; for whatever celebratory day chosen.


Show Your Love with Flowers on International Women’s Day

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

International Women’s Day is a special day acknowledged around the world every March 8th, where women are celebrated and shown extra love and respect. Both men and women give women’s day gifts of flowers, chocolates and presents to make that special woman feel special, and mothers, daughters, partners, friends and colleagues are all recognised. Flowers are perfect additions to International Women’s Day events and also make perfect presents – here are some floral women’s day gift ideas to inspire you.


Lilies. With their long, elegant petals and often sweet fragrances, lilies make perfect women’s day gifts. They have been revered for centuries: the Ancient Greeks even believed they sprouted from the milk of the goddess Hera. Different lilies have different meanings, with white lilies representing purity and innocence. This Pure bouquet incorporates beautiful white lilies and roses to make a truly special gift for International Women’s Day. Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria represent friendship while delicate lilies of the valley are traditionally given on a second anniversary and are also popular at weddings. To express your love for a special woman, as well as giving a gift of happiness full of the joys of spring, choose a colourful lily bouquet like stunning Secret Garden arrangement.

Roses. A bountiful bouquet of red roses is the ideal way to show love and affection – perfect women’s day flowers for wives and girlfriends on this special day. Red roses show love and passion, while pink roses are a softer, romantic option. Elegant white roses, or flowers in more pastel shades like charming Lickety split bouquet are perfect gifts for family members and colleagues, while yellow roses are a joyful spring option symbolising friendship. Flowers24Hours have a truly stunning range of rose bouquets in all the colours of the rainbow, paired with other beautiful blooms like exotic orchids, sweet smelling freesias, lilies and peonies.

Mimosas. In Italy, it is traditional for men to give the special women in their lives yellow mimosa on March 8th, as an expression of respect and love. Even women give each other these fragrant, delicate flowers in female solidarity. It is believed that the tradition began in Rome after the Second World War. As the trees blossom with these beautiful yellow flowers at this time of year, the gift of a mimosas also signals the beginning of spring – and their yellow colour creates feelings for happiness and joy.

Flowering plants. For longer lasting women’s day flowers choose a flowering plant to bring a springtime treat into your special woman’s home. London flower delivery shop Flowers24Hours have a beautiful range – including hydrangeas and exotic anthuriums. Or choose an orchid for a truly breath-taking gift, like this stylish white orchid plant.
