Although Sweetest Day has been a holiday since the early 1900’s, until recently it was largely only recognized in the Midwest and Northeast. It’s name may make you think that it is a romantic observance, but in fact the day was established for a far different purpose.
The first Sweetest Day was actually a community event organized by local candy company owners in Cleveland, OH. The executives handed out over 26,000 boxes of chocolates to shut-ins, orphans, and those down on their luck, in order to let them know that they were not forgotten members of society. The intent of the day has always been to show support and encouragement to those who may be struggling, with “sweetest” referring to candy. However, over the years, the day has evolved to include any kind gesture. Marco Island Florist Home & Gifts is proud to supply the floral designs, gifts and chocolate that will convey your love and friendship.
We Have Proof: Flowers are the perfect gift for Sweetest Day, as they are scientifically proven to elevate a sense of well-being and happiness. This mood-enhancing effect also seems to be universal, across all demographics. Knowing that flowers can have such a positive effect on someone’s day, who can you surprise with a beautiful bouquet? We love gerbera daisies, sunflowers, roses, and lilies as cheerful additions to anyone’s space.
Other ideas for Sweetest Day acts of kindness include sending handwritten notes of encouragement, calling a friend to share a meal, or stopping by an elderly neighbor’s home to spend some time with them. It really doesn’t matter what gesture you make, so long as your intent is to let someone else know that you care about them and want to make their day a little happier. It is the “sweetest” thing you can do!
