Keeping Floral Traditions Alive

Each September, a Sunday is set aside to honor and acknowledge grandparents everywhere. Grandparents Day was established in 1979 as a National Holiday to celebrate the connection between grandparents and grandchildren. This generational bridge can be forged in many ways. Have children bring gifts, bake treats, or bring grandparents on an outing to celebrate their unique relationship. The memories they make together will be cherished throughout generations. The floral designers at Adrian Durban Florist recommend sending or bringing your grandparents a bouquet of their favorite flowers that are significant to your family.
