Flowers and International Women's Day

March is the month we prepare to celebrate International Women's Day—a day dedicated to honouring the achievements, resilience, and indomitable spirit of women across the globe. 

Held every year on 8th March (this year just before Mothering Sunday).

Throughout history, flowers have been used to convey sentiments and emotions when words fall short. Each bloom carries its own symbolism, making them perfect messengers of love, gratitude, and empowerment. This International Women's Day, let's explore how the language of flowers intertwines with the celebration of womanhood.

Roses: Symbolizing love, beauty, and admiration, roses are the quintessential flower for expressing affection towards the women who inspire us. Whether it's a single red rose to signify love or a bouquet of assorted colours to convey appreciation for the many facets of womanhood, roses speak volumes without uttering a word.

Tulips: With their vibrant hues and graceful petals, tulips represent elegance, grace, and charm. Gifting tulips to the women in our lives is a gesture of acknowledging their inner and outer beauty, as well as their strength and resilience.

Daisies: Simple yet captivating, daisies symbolize purity, innocence, and new beginnings. Presenting daisies to women on International Women's Day is a way of celebrating their fresh perspectives, optimism, and the endless possibilities they bring to the world.

Sunflowers: Radiating warmth, joy, and positivity, sunflowers embody the spirit of empowerment and confidence. These bright blooms serve as a reminder to women to stand tall, embrace their uniqueness, and bask in their own sunshine.

Lilies: Representing purity of heart, virtue, and nurturing qualities, lilies honour the nurturing and caring nature of women. Whether it's a bouquet of white lilies symbolizing purity or pink lilies symbolizing admiration and gratitude, these blooms pay homage to the maternal instincts and unconditional love that women provide.

On International Women's Day, let's go beyond traditional gifts and embrace the language of flowers to celebrate and support the women who enrich our lives.
