Women's Friendship Day is Saturday 9/17

For centuries, women have relied on one another for assistance, guidance, compassion, and understanding. When author Jeffrey Zaslow studied 11 women who maintained their friendship over decades of life changes in his book The Women from Ames, he found that women with strong female friendships reap the benefits of those friendships in every aspect of their lives from familial and romantic relationships to their careers. Zaslow also found many health benefits for women with strong friendships. Knowing these benefits of strong female friendships, or sisterhood as they prefer to call it, the women of Kappa Delta founded a day for women to celebrate their friendships, and since 1999, the third Saturday in September has been recognized as National Women’s Friendship day.

What makes this day so perfect is its low-key, non-commercialized nature. There’s no pressure to do anything in particular and no need for an overwhelming of pomp and circumstance. Instead, this day gives you the freedom to celebrate your female friendships in a way that is special to them, whether this is writing a sweet note, spending a spa day, making a call to let them know you’re thinking of them, or simply giving them some space to spend the day in meditative calm. Alpharetta’s florist, Peachtree Petals, has a wonderful array of gifts perfect to send to your favorite friends with easy Alpharetta flower delivery, or even nationwide. Here are just some of our perfect options for this special day.

Wildflower Mix Bouquet: The Wildflower Mix Bouquet comes from our Peachtree Petals Originals collection, a unique collection exemplifying the creativity of our talented Alpharetta florists. This bouquet is perfect to send to a friend with its sunflower feature, and is perfect for the fall season with its accompanying wildflowers in vibrant, rich hues. Your friend can usher in the fall season while knowing how much they are cared for.

A Splendid Day Bouquet: Let your best friend know you hope she has a splendid day on National Women’s Day with the Splendid Day bouquet. This gorgeous arrangement features your choice of 13, 18, or 23 stems of lavender roses and lavender monte casino asters with purple matsumoto asters set against a variety of rich and light green accents all skillfully arranged in a clear, bubble bowl glass vase.

Schefflera Arboricola Container: More commonly known by the name Dwarf Umbrella Tree, this plant is the perfect way to bring nature indoors and enjoy the feeling of fresh plants with a longer shelf life than fresh cut flowers. Our Schefflera Arboricola arrives to your friend in a round graphite container that brings a look of modern sophistication to a home and works well with any decor. This verdant plant qualifies for our special same-day Atlanta flower delivery.

Super Snacker: Sometimes you just need to talk to a good friend and enjoy some junk food. Some of our best nights with our friends are spent doing nothing at all but enjoying one another and a snack. Our super snacker gift basket is a great gift to give, and the sheer size of it makes it perfect for sharing. We recommend sending this wicker hamper filled with candy bars, cookies, salty snacks, and more, and then inviting yourself over to relax and indulge in the company of your friend and share a snack.

Atlanta’s Peachtree Petals has been recognized as a premier Atlanta florist since it debuted onto the Atlanta flower scene in 2010. The commitment to quality and customer service Peachtree’s CEO and florists place on their work is seen time and again with the copious honors bestowed upon them by FTD, Atlanta’s 11Alive, WeddingWire, and more. This commitment is extended to you as you look for a way to honor the sweet and important friendships between you and your female friends. On September 17, 2016, look to this Alpharetta florist to send warm greetings in the most memorable way to your friend.
