Saturday March 8th marks International Women’s Day worldwide. Internationalwomensday.com says that the day “has been observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.”
The date “is now an official holiday in Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China (for women only), Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar (for women only), Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal (for women only), Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries IWD has the equivalent status of Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.”
Flowers as gifts are a wonderful way to celebrate and show appreciation for the wonderful women in all of our lives and thank them for the amazing work they do and the support they give us.
All of our Floral Cloud websites are seeing a pick-up in traffic and an increase in orders for Womens Day bouquet. Any bouquet is suitable and different options depend on colour and flower preferences. The existing collections are very varied and now that the Mother’s Day collections have launched too there is even more choice.

Happy Women’s Day to all!
