Sweetest Day: Unique Ways to Send Love

It is said that you always gain by giving more love, and by giving more, you will never lose. We express our love in many ways, but our goal is always to show appreciation for those we care about most. Every day is an opportunity to showcase our love in small ways, but occasionally there are special days that encourage us to spread kindness as far and wide as possible. Then Sweetest Day is one of those occasions! 

Held on the third Saturday of October, the Sweetest Day is a day of showing appreciation with gifts of candy or gestures of kindness to those you care about or anyone who could use a little more sweetness in their lives! While the tradition started with gifting candy and sweets to family and friends, the day is laced with lessons of caring for others in need and doing small things. It is a day that reminds us that even the smallest acts of kindness can improve the lives of those around us. Let’s take a closer look at Sweetest Day and how Russian Flora can help you celebrate.

Our Favorite Summer Bouquets To Send Mom

Sending your mother, grandmother, or wife a bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day is the perfect way to say “thank you” and “I love you.” Mother’s Day is all about giving, and each act of love is in appreciation of the mothers and maternal figures who have helped shape and guide us into the people we are today. 

I was fortunate enough to have a grandmother who loved tending to her own garden as a child. We would spend our Sundays at a local nursery. Taking our time to browse through the greenery and fresh flowers, eager to take a colorful plant home with us. Once home, my grandmother and I would spend the afternoon in the garden, preparing the soil, digging holes, and getting our hands dirty. We would laugh together and enjoy the unexplainable bond shared between a grandparent and grandchild. These are the memories that I hold dear to my heart. Looking back, it must be the reason why I love flowers and plants so much!
