Friendship Day with Rosé Friendship Day is a day to celebrate that beautiful, special bond between friends, and it happens on the first Sunday of August all over the world. This year, its August 6th. Friendship day may have been posited by the greeting card industry, but it was actually the US Congress in 1935 who proclaimed the first Sunday of August National Friendship Day. Keep in mind, at this time the world was nearing yet another World War–mistrust and resentment hung in the air. A National Friendship Day–while it couldn’t prevent a world war–could serve to uplift the American people, and help them focus on camaraderie within. National Friendship Day eventually developed into International Friendship Day, and now, all over the world, individuals focus on honoring their bonds with one another. Traditional celebrations include spending the day with your friend or sending cards, flowers, and gifts to friends far away. If you’re wondering how to celebrate this day
Celebrate American Flowers Week! You’ve heard of farm-to-table, but have you heard of field-to-vase? That is the essence of American Flowers Week – which happens every year from June 28th through July 4th. AFW is a celebration of American grown flowers and the farmers who cultivate them, like us here at Stargazer Barn. Knowing that your flowers are grown in America (which helps both our economy and the freshness and durability of your flowers) is a potent reassurance at time of purchase. Even better when you know the farm fresh flowers you order come directly from the people who grow them — we don’t source our flowers from other farms, states, or countries — we grow them, from seed and from bulb, in our own backyard. Enjoying a colorful variety of farm-fresh American grown flowers in original, creative arrangements is just the beginning of the American Grown experience. Why not celebrate this week with something that pleases the palate as well as the eye and nose?
