There’s a new holiday on February’s calendar, and it’s called Galentine’s Day. The idea arose from a 2010 episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope proclaimed it Galentine’s Day, “only the best day of the year,” and took all of her ladies out for a long lunch The concept resonated for a lot of women, and every year, more and more are deciding to celebrate their female friendships on February 13 by doing their own long lunches or making it a true girl’s night out. It’s an occasion we here at Nanz & Kraft Florists can get behind.
Because it’s a new concept, there’s lots of room to build in your own traditions and customize your Galentine’s. We think flowers should be a part of it, whether you decide to send your bestie a bouquet at work or hand one over in person when you celebrate. Given that there will be plenty of roses and chocolate the next day, pick something lighthearted and pretty like our Pocketful Of Sunshine.
Something delicate and feminine like this communicates your affection and appreciation beautifully. The yellow palette makes a real splash and is a smart choice, since yellow is the symbolic color for friendship.
If you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day this year and are looking to fete your friends with flowers, let us at Nanz & Kraft Florists know.
