Celebrate Labor Day in Style

Celebrate Labor Day in Style

While too many, Labor Day heralds the unofficial end of summer and the beginning of the autumn season, the holiday actually has deep and significant historical roots. Although individual labor leaders had proposed an official day to celebrate the achievements of the American worker, the holiday did not become official until the late 1800s following the historic – and deadly – Pullman Strike, when 30 railway workers died while protesting work and living conditions. Just a few days after the strike ended, President Grover Cleveland signed the holiday into law, and since then Americans have marked the day to recognize the pivotal role played by the American worker in keeping the country strong and economically healthy.

Because of its historical significance, Labor Day has become a popular flower giving occasion and an ideal way to show the special people in your life how much you appreciate the hard work they do, and research has shown they’re a great way to lift someone’s mood, too. Flowers are also the perfect host or hostess gift, which means they’re great to take to a Labor Day picnic or barbecue.

No matter what your reason for giving flowers, your florist can help ensure the flowers you give are fresh, colorful and fun. Here are a few things to consider when ordering flowers:

  • Order early: Florists become busier as holidays approach, especially if you’re ordering flowers as a host or hostess gift, or if you want to have specific flowers included, it’s a good idea to order a few days in advance.
  • Be colorful: Red-white-and-blue keep the patriotic vibe going, or consider bright colors in the spirit of summer fun.
  • Containers count: When choosing an arrangement or bouquet, ask your florist about containers that can be used even after the flowers have faded.
  • Add some fun with balloons: Nothing says “fun” like a few brightly colored balloons. Your florist can suggest a wide range of options, so mix it up with colors and shapes.
Whether you’re celebrating the contributions of the country’s workforce or remembering the lazy, hazy days of summer, Labor Day is an ideal flower giving occasion. Ask your florist to help you create the ideal floral gift to show the special people in your life how much they mean to you.
