International Women’s Day will be observed across the globe on March 8th, with organizers proclaiming the event as a time set aside to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The initiative was originally established over 100 years ago as a suffragette movement in Soviet bloc nations, although today it takes on different nuances in different countries, based on the wide disparity of women’s rights around the world. While some countries still fight for basic human rights, the West largely uses this opportunity to recognize the achievements and accomplishments of women. As a matter of fact, it is easy to look around our own communities in Snohomish County and see women from all walks of life who are dedicated to making the world a better place.
On March 8th, why not send a note and a floral arrangement from Stadium Flowers to let these amazing women know they have your support? Flowers can be used to express emotions and sentiments – here are just a few that we think would be perfect for International Women’s Day:
Protea and gladioli: These bold flowers stand for integrity, strength, and courage.
Hydrangea and Pink Roses: Both of these spring flowers express gratitude and appreciation.
Gerbera Daisies: Express a cheerful countenance for someone who brings joy to others.
Orchids: These sophisticated flowers represent beauty and strength combined in one flower.
Palm Plants and Laurels: These green plants are synonymous with overcoming challenges to be victorious.
There are local women changing the world in ways big and small every day, and this day is about them as well. Whether she is an advocate speaking out for the weak and vulnerable, a mentor helping to guide young women, or a mom raising her children to be both strong and compassionate – she deserves honor. Politician, school board member, teacher or business leader – on International Women’s Day, thank her for all she does every day to change our corner of the world. Call today for a meaningful bouquet from Stadium Flowers.
