Celebrated the third week in August, Friendship Week is a happy time for reconnecting with friends and remembering all the fun times you’ve had with the special people in your life. Brighten a friend’s day with a gift of flowers from Gordon Boswell.
Friendship Week is an expansion of International Friendship Day, which was popular in South America for many decades before making its way around the world. Now, Friendship Day has become an entire week to celebrate dear friends which means you don’t have to worry about missing the date because you have a full week to schedule lunch or coffee.
A Friendship Inspired by Summer
Many people consider yellow as the unofficial color of friendship, and it’s a beautiful shade for a flower. Gerbera daisies, roses, and lilies are vibrant in yellow and would look beautiful and sweet in a little glass cube lined with lemons.
Another happy arrangement of flowers that combines the sunshine and fun of Friendship Week is a glass cube of sunflowers accented with cattails and beautiful orange roses. A hint of orange is a lovely addition to a vase of yellow flowers.
Thinking Outside the Vase
Flowers in a vase are always beautiful and appreciated, but you can get creative with your Friendship Week flowers by choosing a beautiful plant or a gift basket. Do you have a friend who loves gardening? How about a garden in a basket?
Another way to celebrate Friendship Week is with something edible. You might think about giving your friend a gift basket with some of the foods you used to eat when you were kids. Maybe the two of you used to race after the ice cream truck for a favorite candy bar.
There’s no one way to observe Friendship Week, but flowers are definitely a gift you’ll want to consider. From orchids for dear friends to daisies that honor newly made friendships, it’s easy to celebrate Friendship Week with a flower delivery.
