This month brings us the celebration of Sweetest Day, observed on the third Saturday of October each year. This philanthropic day was created by Herbert Birch Kingston in 1922 as a means of distributing a bit of happiness to the downtrodden during the Great Depression. Kingston, a candy company employee, gave candy and treats to orphans, shut-ins and others who had seemingly been forgotten. Today, we observe this day by bringing surprises to those in hospitals, shelters or nursing homes. The professionals at Marco Island Florist are happy to share our wide variety of floral arrangements, plants and gift baskets with you as we help you celebrate Sweetest Day this year.
