Life just seems to be so much more exciting during the holidays. With so many festivities packed into a few months, life can seem pretty dull when they are all over. Why not keep the celebrations going year-round? Don’t let the sun go down on your joy! Here are 10 holidays you probably never knew existed that are the perfect excuse to give (or receive) flowers.
National Best Friends Day—June 8
The perfect day to show your bestie some love! Yellow roses symbolize forgiveness, but they also symbolize friendship.
What is this??? Thanksgiving. In. The. Summer. Pack-up your turkey picnic-style and add the perfect bouquet of sunflowers to finish off the perfect Summersgiving picnic table setting!
National Gorgeous Grandma Day—July 23
She’s beautiful. She’s graceful. She’s grandma, and she deserves all the love in the world. Show your grandma (or any grandma) some love with orchids, symbolizing love, respect, and honor to match her gorgeous heart.
National Girlfriend Day—August 1
Fellas, don’t be that guy that only buys your girlfriend flowers when Valentine’s Day rolls around. Show her how much she means to you with fresh flowers just because. Peonies are a great pick and symbolize beauty and adoration. And whatever you do, don’t forget to post that cute pic of her on Instagram for National Girlfriend Day (you’re welcome.)

Flowers are a love language. Encourage someone with your words and actions by sending them some yellow blooms, sure to brighten their day!

National Singles Day—September 25
ALL THE SINGLE LADIES, ALL THE SINGLE LADIES, buying yourself flowers is a boss move. Celebrate YOU by treating your single self to a bouquet of your favorite flowers. You deserve it.
