When Coleen Paige instituted National Puppy Day in 2007, the animal advocate had a distinct goal in mind - to educate the public on the very great need to adopt puppies from shelters. Only 26% of the puppies acquired in the United States are rescue dogs, and because of the reality of puppy mills, overbreeding, and overpopulation, these precious animals face real peril.
National Puppy Day also celebrates the people who have dedicated their lives to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming puppies and older dogs alike. These people are quite literally saving canine lives every day - let them know you appreciate them, with a beautiful floral design from Marco Island Florist to brighten up the shelter.

St. Patrick's Day is a religious and cultural observance for many across the country. While the holiday originally honored the patron saint of Ireland, it is said that on March 17th, "everyone is Irish". In fact, Patrick himself was not even Irish, so that means all people are welcome to celebrate! Customs include wearing green attire, drinking green beer, attending Irish festivals, or watching the local parades. Whichever traditions you love, don't forget to send your favorite Gaelic friends and colleagues a beautiful green floral design or potted plant from Marco Island Home & Gifts to honor their heritage.
Here are a few interesting facts about this festive holiday: Read More about St. Patrick’s Day Plants, Flowers and Decor »
Seasons are a bit different here in south Florida. While others are anxiously awaiting the spring thaw, we are enjoying some of the most beautiful weather we will encounter all year. While some brace for the last winter snowstorm, we take the day off and go to the beach. And while some await the end of gray days, we have been enjoying the sunshine every day. Still, there are reasons to anticipate the spring here in Marco Island and Naples - for instance, the days are longer, giving us more time each day to enjoy paradise. And with the spring rains, we find our home turning back to the verdant green that surrounds us once the winter droughts subside. At Marco Island Florist Home & Gifts, we love the design options that spring flowers give us, and look forward to sharing our new seasonal creations with you!

International Women’s Day, observed on March 8th, is an awareness initiative targeted at strategically achieving equality and justice for women globally. The day was first celebrated in 1910, but attained its most significant recognition in 1977, when the United Nations extended sanction and support. Each year a theme is chosen to represent some of the struggles women face across the world, from combatting poverty, to gaining education equality, to addressing violence towards women. This year is a call to action, with the theme Be Bold For Change challenging men and women everywhere to do their part. Read More about Honoring Their Contributions on Women’s Day »
