Grandparents Day is an annual opportunity for families to celebrate the very special relationships involved between grandparents and their grandkids. Established by Congress in 1978, the day was set aside in the hopes that extended families would gather together, share stories and history, and learn about each other. Only a few decades prior, multi-generational families lived together, but the arrangement had become far less common. Grandparents Day sought to reconnect relatives of all ages to share their common legacy.
This day also gives us a wonderful opportunity to tell these very special people how much we love them. Gordon Boswell Flowers has the Grandparents Day flowers you’ll need to convey your love and gratitude.
“Truth be told, being a grandma is as close as we ever get to perfection. Clouds nine, ten, and eleven.” – Bryna Nelson Paston
There is simply no love like a grandparents love. Return the love on September 10, with floral designs which are certain to touch their hearts. Whether your grandmother would prefer an elegant bouquet of snapdragons and roses (above) or a more casual wildflower bouquet featuring sunflowers, lilies and daisies (below) we have a bouquet for every personality and style.
We haven’t forgotten about Grandpa – check out our green plants for his den, or maybe a box of delicious fruit and nuts is more his style!
Did You Know? Although we often think of a little grey haired couple when we hear grandparent, the average age of the first-time grandparent is 48 – making most of them more than capable of chasing around the grandkids! And they love doing so, as over 75% of grandparents report that being with their grandchildren is the most fulfilling thing in their life.
Whether you call them Nana and Pop-Pop, Mimi and Papa, or good old Grandma and Grandpa – if they live in the Fort Worth area, give them a call and plan a special outing for September 10. They will absolutely love spending time with you.
And don’t forget the Grandparents Day flowers – because a bouquet from Gordon Boswell Flowers makes every occasion more beautiful.
