How To Incorporate Flowers into Your Father's Day Celebration


June: More Than Father’s Day Celebrations

After celebrating the Mothers and women in our lives, we now move on to uplifting the Fathers and Father figures. Did you know that June is not only the month we celebrate Father's Day but also National Men's Mental Health Month?

It's the perfect time to show the men in our lives that we care about their well-being. Flowers can play a huge role in improving mental health and promoting positivity. Let's explore how we can incorporate flowers into Father's Day celebrations and make this day even more special.

The Surprising Rate at Which Men Receive Flowers

So often, flowers are associated with women (just look at literary references from the past, well, forever), but it's time to change that perception. Studies have shown that men receive flowers far less frequently than women. Heartbreaking research shows that men often receive their first arrangement of flowers at their funeral. While some men simply are not interested in this type of gift, studies show that around 50% of men would love to receive flowers- especially from their partners. This is a missed opportunity, as flowers have tremendous effects on the mental and emotional well-being of all genders.

Research has also shown that receiving flowers can have immediate and long-term effects on a person's happiness, reducing stress and improving emotional connections. So, let's break the stereotype and make this Father's Day memorable by incorporating flowers into the celebration.

Boosting Father's Day with a Simple Arrangement from The Hidden Garden

Flowers are a heartfelt and meaningful gift for any occasion, and Father's Day is no exception. The Hidden Garden, known for their exquisite floral arrangements, offers the perfect solution to brighten your Dad's day.

A simple arrangement of vibrant flowers can add a touch of beauty and elegance to your Father's Day celebration. From bold red roses to vibrant orchids, The Hidden Garden's expert florists can create a custom arrangement that aligns with your dad's preferences.

By surprising your Father with a thoughtful floral gift, you are not just honoring him on this special day but also promoting his mental well-being. The natural beauty and enchanting fragrance of flowers can uplift his spirits and bring a smile to his face.

Incorporating Flowers on Father's Day

  1. Decorate the Space: Set the tone for a festive Father's Day celebration by decorating the space with beautiful flower arrangements. Choose colors your dad loves, or opt for a mix of seasonal flowers to create a vibrant display.
  2. Personalized Bouquets: Gift your dad a personalized bouquet that touches his heart. Consider incorporating flowers that hold special meaning or represent qualities you admire in your father, such as strength, wisdom, or perseverance. For example, here is The Language of Flowers (May edition).
  3. Outdoor Celebrations: If you plan to celebrate outdoors, embrace the beauty of nature and decorate with potted plants or hanging baskets. These not only infuse color but also create a serene and peaceful atmosphere.
  4. Edible Flowers: Enhance your Father's Day menu with edible flowers. Incorporate blooms like nasturtiums, pansies, or lavender into salads, desserts, or drinks. These delightful additions will surprise your dad and add a unique twist to the celebration (he may call it a true “rabbit’s salad,” but The Hidden Garden states this is part of “the Dad Package” and is to be expected). 
  5. Potted Plants as Gifts: Consider giving your father a potted plant instead of a traditional bouquet. This allows him to nurture and care for the plant, creating a long-lasting reminder of your love and appreciation.

Remember, it's not just about the flowers but the meaning and gesture behind the gift. Just as we did with the women in our lives, show the men that you care about their well-being and mental health by incorporating flowers into your Father's Day celebration this year.

This June, let's break the stigma surrounding men and flowers. Celebrate Father's Day with a touch of nature's beauty from The Hidden Garden because everyone deserves the happiness and joy that flowers bring.
