A Bright Design For International Women’s Day

If you’re planning on sending some flowers to the most important women in your life this March 8, International Women’s Day, we here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts are proud of you. This is exactly the moment to celebrate the female role models and mentors that have had such an impact on us, especially seeing as we’ve been doing so as a nation since 1909, through IWD. And it’s not just an American affair—women, and their incredible achievements, are celebrated on this day throughout the world.

So flowers are an excellent way to be in the spirit of things and to acknowledge the women you care the most about. One of the best ways to do that is to pick a design that makes use of the colors most meaningful to IWD, a palette that includes purple, green and yellow. The first two have long been associated with women’s struggle for equality, symbolizing loyalty and growth. Yellow, a recent addition to the palette, is identified with dawning hope and awareness. And it’s yellow, along with green, that we’re showcasing here, in our Spring Sunshine design.

What we love about this light-filled bouquet is that it reads as energetic and uplifting, two qualities we see celebrated on IWD. The woman who receives a bright, cheerful bouquet like this will know that her relationship to you is meaningful, and that you appreciate all that she’s given you of herself.
