Celebrate National Best Friends Day with Roses
“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.” — Woodrow T. Wilson
This year, we believe it's extra important to show people that you care. While there are many holidays on the yearly calendar, one of our favorites is National Best Friends Day. Best friends are with you through the joy, laughter, tears, and heartbreak. They're there when we're feeling down, to support us when we take risks, and to help make life all that much better. Whether they're in the same town or 1,000 miles away, we all have that best friend who deserves to know just how important they are. Tell them with flowers.
National Best Friends Day
"A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flowers in your garden." — Unknown
In 1935, the United States Congress declared June 8th as National Best Friends Day. And it's customary to show gratitude to your close friends, thanking them for their support.
While there are many ways to say thank you, we think flowers are a great way to show how much you care, making the perfect Best Friends Day gift by spreading happiness and joy. When deciding on which Best Friend Day flowers to give, we recommend a beautifully fragrant bouquet of yellow roses that celebrate friendly affection and mutual support.
Why Roses Are the Ideal Best Friends Day Gift
Roses make a great gift because of their alluring scent, natural beauty, and timeless appeal. While red roses are often given to a love interest or family member, there are also special rose colors that are closely connected to friendship, including:
Yellow Roses:Sunny and bright, yellow roses have long been a symbol of friendship and happiness. Since the yellow rose was discovered growing wild in the Middle East during the 18th century, the flower has been a representation of joy. It's also the only rose that has no romantic meaning.
Green Roses:Green roses, or chartreuse, represent cheerfulness and offer poise, stability, and peace of mind. If you want to honor your friendship, these rare and unique roses symbolize the richness and hope of longevity for your relationship.
Pink Roses:Pink roses are often associated with gratitude, joy, and admiration. In fact, the shell-pink Floribunda rose, a hybrid, is often called the "Friends Forever" rose.
Mixed Bouquet:Best Friend Day is a light-hearted affair, and we suggest reflecting that energy into your gift. Try mixing together a combination of colors to create a special bouquet that your friend will love. We offer a wide range of roses that can be customized to your liking.
“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.” — Eleanor Roosevelt
