Pugh’s Flowers operates four flower shops in the greater Memphis and Southaven area

The International Day of Friendship is July 30th this year.  This is a perfect time to purchase International Day of Friendship Flowers. What a great time to pick out a thoughtful and beautiful flower arrangement professionally prepared by a Pugh’s Flowers award-winning floral designer. Our flower arrangements are spectacular and guaranteed to make your friends feel loved. This day was designated to be a meaningful day of recognition and it has become a popular worldwide event.  Most would agree that there is a sizable amount of diversity in this world regarding cultures and beliefs. Having an Internationally recognized day for people to stop, celebrate and promote understanding in human differences is valuable. The main purpose of this day is to help all of us appreciate the differences in our cultures and try to unite.

In addition to sending beautiful flowers, there are other International Day of Friendship activities that can be enjoyable.  Several governments, individuals, and community interest groups work to schedule events that are designed to create or renew friendships within their communities and extending outside of their communities.  Parades displaying multiple country flags followed by music festivals hosted by multi-cultural bands are commonplace. If you are looking for some fun things to do on International Day of Friendship, below are a few ideas you can encourage children to do.

  • Create a book filled with photos and stories about your special friendships.
  • Create a big poster symbolizing all of the values of friendship.
  • Make goodie baskets filled with special treats and give them to friends.
  • Make homemade friendship bracelets
  • The kids can create a friendship class book.
  • Have kids write about what a friend means.
  • Ask the kids to share stories about friends and try to find common things.

Teaching children early about the value of friendship and accepting differences is important. However, adults can get to together with friends and create strong friendship bonds as well. Let’s face it, the world we live in today possesses an elevated level of miscommunications, mistreatment, lack of trust, discrimination, and cultural discord. The value of a day like International Day of Friendship can go a long way to minimizing those issues. Peace in our global society, while difficult to obtain is still a worthy pursuit.  The United Nations can be thanked for introducing International Day of Friendship in 2011. They experience every day the value of building bridges among cultures, countries, and even ideologies.

As far as simple things adults can do to foster better friendships, below are a few ideas:

Share a meal – If you have not seen friends in a while and want to reconnect, planning a lunch, dinner or happy hour can be a great start. Do it in the name of International Day of Friendship to add meaning to the occasion.

Attend a community cultural celebration – Nothing says I want to make new friends and experience different cultures than attending an event that is out of your norm.

Send a greeting card – A common and simple gesture is to purchase or make a nice greeting card. Let friends know on International Friendship Day that you truly value your relationship.

Friendship and connections will break down barriers and differences. That is main purpose of International Day of Friendship. Once others realize how open you are to new learning and respecting new cultures, deeper bonds will be established. The elimination of negative biases and feelings towards the views of others can go a great distance in unification and an attempt to create peace and harmony in the world.

Make sure you are ready to celebrate this special and important day. We invite you to please stop into a Pugh’s Flowers show room and speak with one of our super talented floral designers. They will be delighted to help you select that perfect flower arrangement to make your friends feel the love. You can also browse online at pughsflowers.com.
