What To Give This International Women’s Day

By conklyns on March 4, 2018 in Flowers. 0 Comments

March 8 is International Women’s Day. This year’s campaign theme is #PressforProgress, and the hashtag focuses on feminism as well as international efforts to promote and gain global gender equality. The roots of International Women’s Day date back to the early 1900s and the creation of the Women’s Social and Political Union, a group of British Suffragettes who sought to get women the right to vote. It was first celebrated in 1911. In the United States, this year’s International Women’s Day is especially meaningful. The Conklyn’s Flowers team is proud to offer our customers a variety of floral designs with which to mark the occasion. Read More about What To Give This International Women’s Day

This February 13th, join us in celebrating Galentine's Day, an occasion just ahead of V-Day dedicated to celebrating the love every gal has for her besties. The idea sprang from a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation and struck a nerve: every year, more and more girls gather up their crew and do something fun in honor of friendship, whether that's a long lunch or a girls night out. They give gifts, too. Flowers are a natural fit for this event, we here at Conklyn's Flowers believe. Since they're beautiful, fragrant, eye-catching, mood-lifting and happy-giving, they're the perfect choice for your friends. Read More about Gorgeous Flowers For Your Besties
