Breens Florist

The Best Flowers for Friendship Week

National Friendship Week takes place during the third week of August 2015. It starts on August 16 and continues until August 22. Breen’s Florist is always thrilled to create arrangements that are suitable for special occasions, and Friendship Week is certainly one of those.

The idea for a single Friendship Day began in 1930 when the founder of Hallmark Cards, Joyce Hall, began to promote the day. Her idea was to encourage people to acknowledge friendships, and to do so by sending cards. Ultimately, August 2 was chosen as Friendship Day because it fell midway between major holidays.

We don’t know how it went from a single day event to a week-long national week of observance. However, it happened, it’s become a week during the dog days of summer when people are encouraged to recognize their friends. We think that flowers are the ideal way to show someone you value and appreciate their friendship.

We’ve come up with a two ideas that we believe are a perfect reflection of the way Texans show their friends their appreciation, gratitude, and fondness.

Yellow Rose Pave

If you want to show your gratitude to a Texas friend, especially if for a romantic friendship, there is no better way to accomplish that than with our Yellow Rose Pave Arrangement. This spectacular arrangement comes in a sleek white ceramic cube. We nestle beautiful yellow roses with elegant Cymbidium orchids. This luxurious arrangement is sure to let someone know that you think of him or her as more than a friend.

Protea Paradise

If you want something that blends elegance and sophistication with a bit of whimsical abandon, then our Protea Paradise arrangement fits the bill to a T. We choose pincushion Proteas to give the arrangement a dramatic look that combines contrast and texture.

Don’t forget to show your friends how much they mean to you. Order your flowers for National Friendship Week.
