It's easy to get wrapped up in the stress and worry of life, including what's been amplified this year between health concerns, online school, work stress and more. However, we also have to stop and think about everything we do have, especially those around us that continue to support us and provide positive messages. We can also do the same for those we know who might be battling their own stresses. There is no better time to reach out than this second week of August. That's because it's officially National Smile Week. There is still time to bring the smiles to those around us. You can call or message others and send along a funny or sweet message. Share pictures or make plans to get together in-person or virtually. There are also many types of special gifts you could surprise them with, including flowers. That's because flowers have so many messages and emotions within their appearance. They are also something that people don't often buy themselves but are thrilled to receive as a gift. Plus, flowers are easy to deliver when you can't see each other in-person. We want to help! Our Finger Lakes flower shops and our website make it easy to select a special bouquet, flower arrangement, plant or garden selection that you can get through curbside pickup or deliver through our contactless process. Our customers love our collection called Dazzling Dancers that offer many hand-wrapped bouquets along with an adorable stuffed animal. Don't forget that our floral design team can also put a custom bouquet together for you! Of course, we also have other special gifts in our Finger Lakes florist locations that can add a smile, including balloons, greeting cards, and locally curated items.
July is a special month beyond it being the middle of summer and the home to the 4th of July. It is also a month filled with special days devoted to important family members. For example, July 24th is Cousin's Day, July 26th is Uncle and Aunt Day and Parent's Day, and July 30th is Father-in-Law Day.
