What Flower Goes Well With Your Father’s Day Gift?

You typically want to set your eye on gorgeous, yet easy flowers to take care of, with a long vase life to keep brightening up their days.

Before digging into the flowers to best complement your gift, let’s take a look at where it all began.

How Father’s Day was Originated?

Carnations are the holiday flower for Mother’s Day but did you know that roses are considered the official Father’s Day flower? The official US holiday started back in 1910, when Louis Smart Dodd,of Spokane, Washington proposed the idea of Father’s Day to honor her own father, Mr. William Smart. Widowed and despite many hardships, Mr. Smart sacrificed endlessly to raise six children to become a role model for all men raising a family on their own. Since then, Father’s Day has been celebrated nationwide on the third Sunday of June.
