Grandparents Day is coming up, don’t forget the flowers!

Did you know that the first Sunday after Labor Day is National Grandparents Day? It’s a day set aside to honor our grandparents and appreciate all they have done for us. This year is it September 9.

Grandparents Day was officially recognized as a US holiday in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter. A tenacious woman by the name of Marian McQuade was the driving force behind the official recognition of our elders. She wanted to “champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes” as well as “persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide.”

The official flower of Grandparents Day is the forget-me-not but when it comes to showing Grandma and Grandpa how much you love them, most any flower will do. Here are some ideas for incorporating flowers into your Grandparents Day celebrations.

  • Order an arrangement for their home. If they live in a retirement center, be sure to check with the staff about any restrictions regarding flowers.
  • Give Granny a corsage and Papaw a boutineer that they can wear to church.
  • If your grandparents have already passed on, this is a perfect time to honor their memory by visiting their graves and leaving some flowers.
  • Donate a flower arrangement to your grandparents’ church in their honor or memory.
  • Ask your grandmother what her favorite flower is and surprise her with a corsage or arrangement featuring that flower when you take her to lunch.
  • Volunteer at a nursing home and give a rose to each of the residents.
