Things and experience are both nice to have, but something that beats everything else out in terms of value is friendship. Your friends are invaluable because they provide you with comfort, support, advice, and fun in a way your family and others cannot do. While you may be thankful for them each and every day, International Friendship Day on July 30th is a good day to let your friends know just how much they are loved. Here are some ideas on what you can do to make International Friendship Day memorable: Do something different than the normal routine with your friends. These unexpected events might include a show or weekend trip versus the usual movies and a meal out. Or, try something new like a pottery class or skydiving for more adventure. Think about what you've talked about doing but never have and then plan that. Instead of getting a greeting card, write a note the defines what the friendship means to you. This will be more meaningful and memorable for your friend or friends. Friendship so often involves laughter, so do something that can make your friend laugh, such as send them a funny meme or video. If you can't see them in-person, then call or FaceTime your friend or friends so they know that you are thinking of them. Make every day a friendship day, showing them appreciation and doing your best to be just as good a friend to them as they are to you. Of course, getting some of your friends a gift is also a nice gesture on International Friendship Day. Our Memphis flower and gift shop as well as our website offer you many great gifts for your friends: We have all types of plants and plant packages that may include a green or blooming plant along with a greeting card, balloon, or other add-on item. If your friend is a foodie, consider our charcuterie basket or if they love to be pampered, send them a spa gift package. Any flowers that match their preference makes a good gift or you can be more symbolic and get them yellow roses, sunflowers, or any other yellow flower since this color is a symbol of friendship. International Friendship Day is also a good day to actively seek out other people to be friends with and expand your social circle. It's also a good opportunity to practice the traits of friendship with everyone around you, emphasizing kindness and. thoughtfulness for everyone you come in contact with.

We've continued to follow wedding flower trends so we can always be prepared should you want a wedding floral design that is on point for the current popular look, including Summer wedding flower trends like these: Eternity arches for the wedding ceremony and floating flowers are two popular wedding flower trends that allow for more creativity and create a dramatic presentation. Another wedding ceremony trend for flowers is an enhanced aisle with an aisle meadow or another dynamic floral design that adds interest as the wedding party goes down the aisle. Floral tablescapes are becoming more elaborate and a way to create a more natural-looking environment in which to celebrate. Monochromatic hues are also a popular summer wedding flower look with variant hues that provide some depth and interest when using one color for your wedding. Textures and earth tones are also adding to the naturalistic feel, including more natural accent pieces like berries, branches, and more. This also includes mixing dried and fresh flowers and accents. More unique flowers beyond the traditional roses and carnations are taking over, including large and bold dahlias as well as sunflowers and peonies. All of these wedding flower trends are also viewed as a way to further personalize weddings rather than have them all look similar. The more naturalistic, the better chance brides have of creating their own wedding wonderland that looks nothing like other brides' visions.
