Sweetest Day is a day set aside to make other people smile. And although it may not be the most well-known holiday, we think it should be, based on the fact that it was created to make sure that the poor and underprivileged felt valued.
The observance began nearly 100 years ago in Cleveland, when over 25,000 boxes of chocolate were donated by local candy companies to orphans, shut-ins, and the elderly. The idea spread rapidly thanks to heavy media coverage, and over the years the regional initiative grew to include any gesture of kindness designed to let someone know that they are special. Actually, that is something that we at Rose Hill Flowers strive for every day – to make people smile and feel loved when they receive our beautiful bouquets and arrangements.
Whether you want to encourage your friend looking for a job, or your family member who is missing a loved one – flowers are a wonderful choice. In fact, in recent years, scientific studies have proved what we knew all along – flowers make us happier. On Sweetest Day, how about sending our cheerful Gerbera Daisy Vase, shown above; or the Butterfly Kisses design, shown below?
Not Just for Lovebirds? Many people consider Sweetest Day to a kind of lesser Valentines Day, a day for hopeless romantics to once again let their sweethearts know how loved they are. While Sweetest Day is popular with romantics, the day was never intended to be for them, but for everyone to participate in.
No matter the occasion or holiday, Rose Hill Flowers specializes in letting people know how loved they are, in the most beautiful of ways. If you live in Nashville and are looking for the sweetest floral designs and unique gifts, you’ll want to stop by.
