As Grandparents Day approaches, it’s time to think about how to bring grandchildren and grandparents together for a day full of bonding and memory making. Have grandchildren send a gorgeous bouquet of flowers or a long-lasting dish garden to grandparents to let them know how much they care. The professionals at Shotwell Floral & Greenhouse are happy to deliver your special design anywhere in the Fargo area, including local nursing homes, retirement centers or assisted living facilities, as well as private residences. If you are lucky enough to get together on Grandparents Day, we have outlined a few great ideas for spending quality time together.
Send Beautiful Blooms
Grandparents will love to receive our Dazed Daisies bouquet. A clear glass vase arrives overflowing with yellow and white daisy chrysanthemums and accented with pittosporum. What a bright and cheery selection for any occasion! For a long-lasting plant design, gift grandparents with our Bloomin’ Sunshine Days Basket. A variety of blooming and green plants are combined in a white wicker basket to bring sunshine-y days to grandparents. Another happy option is Flutter, our lovely design that will brighten any room and warm any heart. A bright, cheerful combination of daisies, roses and berries, accented with a butterfly in a light blue glass vase.
Have a Baking Day
Get children and grandparents together for a day of baking special treats. Let kids and grandparents go crazy creating delicious treats for the entire family. And just maybe, one of your children will finally discover the secret to Gram’s famous oatmeal cookies.
Do Some Scrapbooking
Kids and grandparents will love creating a few scrapbook pages together. This is an opportunity for grandparents to tell stories about the family and for children to learn more about where that came from. Add beautiful decorations to complete the pages. Let grandma tell stories about family members as they become part of the family legacy.
Take a Field Trip
Organize a field trip between grandparents and grandchildren. Visit someplace that highlights Grandpa‘s favorite hobbies or Grandma’s love of nature and beauty. Then let kids choose a favorite spot as well so grandparents can watch them in their natural environment.
However you choose to celebrate Grandparents Day, make it special and make it memorable. The floral designers at Shotwell Floral & Greenhouse are happy to help you create a perfect day. Whether you deliver gorgeous blooms to your grandparents in the Fargo area or fill your day with great ideas for spending time together, make sure this Grandparents Day is the best one yet.
