Celebrating Women's Day PDF Print E-mail
Flower Holidays, Occasions & Parties - Women's Day

Women's Day, March 8Women's Day, observed annually on March 8, is a day to honor and celebrate the achievements of women from around the world. With efforts dating back as early as 1908, the occasion is an official holiday in more than two dozen countries.

It is a time to recognize the amazingly influential women throughout history and today — from business to politics to athletics to philanthropy to celebrity. And it is a time to celebrate the amazing women we interact with on a daily basis and to express respect, appreciation and love.

Around the world, many people give flowers and other small gifts to their mothers, wives, grandmothers and daughters, as well as coworkers, teachers and friends in recognition of Women's Day. Research at Rutgers University demonstrates flowers create instant delight and increase happiness and life satisfaction, making flowers a top choice for celebrations.

Do you know a woman — mom, sister, daughter, friend, spouse, co-worker — who deserves to be celebrated? Honor, respect and love translate so beautifully with flowers. 

Some suggestions for Women's Day flowers are:

  • A flowering plant or a garden-style arrangement with greens and soft pastel hues – no matter what the flower – will send the message of love to your mom, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and daughters.
  • Flowers to show friends or neighbors that you appreciate them have a natural, just-picked feeling. Garden-style flowers or a bright bold color palette are fun and whimsical options. A basket with a mix of flowering and green plants delivered to her door or office is also a sure-fire winner.
  • Giving flowers to clients and employees is a sophisticated way to recognize workplace accomplishments. A mixed floral arrangement of reds, rich oranges and fuchsias inspires and energizes.
  • Say "I appreciate all you do" to teachers and childcare professionals with flowers in bright oranges and lime greens. Those colors together are contemporary, generate energy and excitement, and are perfect for showing thanks and appreciation.
  • For your wife, send her favorite flowers – the varieties at your wedding, flowers you sent her when you first started dating or the ones she buys for herself. What is her favorite color? Those flowers will have great meaning and impact.

Flowers  Florists

With today's high-tech and fast-paced lifestyle taking its daily toll on our lives, experts advise exercise and other personal lifestyle changes to relieve stress.

According to behavioral research conducted at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, nature provides us with a simple way to improve emotional health - flowers. The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed.

"What's most exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way," said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher on the study.
