Lesser Known Summer Holidays to Send Flowers

Holidays In June

There are plenty of holidays to look forward to during the winter: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and Valentine’s Day, just to name a few. So much so, it seems like the “holiday season” runs from November through the beginning of February, and after that, we wait seven months for it to begin again.

There are any number of reasons to give someone you love flowers in the off-season, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or “just because.”  Here are a slew of summer holidays that deserve your attention, and many are best celebrated with a colorful Bouq. Holiday flowers are always a timeless gift, but flowers that arrive on an extraneous holiday are an extra special surprise. One, because you’ve received a bouquet of beautiful flowers, and two, because you’ve learned about a new holiday!



The first whole week of the month is National Gardening Week, and June as a whole is National LGBTQ+ Pride Month. There’s no better reason to send a rainbow bouquet than celebrating the love between two people. Other than these two, there are a lot of fun holidays in June: June 8th is Best Friend’s Day, the perfect reason to send an Instagram-worthy succulent to your friend who’s covered your brunch the last few Sundays. June 23rd is National Pink Day, and June 12th is National Red Rose Day— two excellent reasons to send a Bouq full of pink-red blooms to someone that might want to join in the celebration.


July is national blueberry month, and there’s no better time to start thinking about planting those bushes than now. Above and beyond berries however, July is a month packed full of independence and freedom. July 1st is Canada Day, a celebration of the day Canada became self-governing in 1867. If you know a Canadian, a red and white Bouq (or maybe some maple leaves!) would be the perfect nod to their heritage.

Similarly, July 4th celebrates the independence of the United States of America and July 14th commemorates modern France and French democracy (the end of the monarchy.) For both occasions, since the U.S. and France share flag colors, blooms in red, white, and blue are always a popular choice. Luckily, roses come in both red and white, and carnations are easy to dye blue.


August is Romance Awareness Month (really), even though August 1st is National Girlfriends Day and August 5th is National Sisters Day. So tend to all your relationships; platonic, familial, or otherwise, and send a Bouq of flowers to your female friends (though, maybe throw in a phone call for your sister.)

August 18th is Bad Poetry Day, so if there’s anything you need to get off your chest, now’s the time to do it. Attach it to some of those holiday flowers, and you’ll be really ready to roll. August 26th is Women’s Equality Day, so be sure to send some blooms to the women who have made your life brighter.

No matter what holiday you’re celebrating, flowers are always a welcome treat. It’s never too difficult to find a reason to celebrate if you look around hard enough. There are best friends and sisters and an independent Canada, after all. While winter holidays tend to be more steeped in tradition, summer holidays can be a little bit looser and up for interpretation! So many of the summer holidays are about spontaneity and just reminding someone that you’ve been thinking about them, and there’s no better way to do that than with gorgeous, seasonal flowers.
