There is no doubt that the relationship between grandparent and grandchild is a special and unique bond. It is truly amazing to watch these two people, separated by a generation, magically come together in a mutual understanding and affection that seems completely effortless.
Once upon a time in America's history, it was common to see multiple generations living together under the same roof. As that custom began to fade, we saw extended families begin to have separate residences. In 1978, a mother and grandmother named Marian McQuade successfully petitioned Congress to institute Grandparents Day, a time set aside for the generations to once again come together - to share stores, and preserve the history and legacy of the family. Of course, it is also a great opportunity to shower your grandparents with love and affection, with beautiful Grandparents Day bouquets from Rebel Hill Florist.

This fall, over 20 millions students are preparing to return to college campuses. Of those, approximately 12 million will be attending college for the first time - and just over 2 million will be experiencing dorm life for the very first time. Of course, that means that those same students will likely be living away from home for the first time in their lives - an intimidating fact in any situation, but especially so when it is compounded with roommates they don't know, classes they are unfamiliar with and a campus that seems to large to navigate. At Rebel Hill Florist, we understand how very important it is to you that your student will feel as comfortable as possible in their new space - and to that end, we have lovely dorm decor that will create a personal and homey vibe.

In 1935, Congress enacted National Friendship Day (scheduled for the first Sunday in August) to celebrate one of life's most important relationships.

On the same date - August 6 - National Sisters Day is also on the calendar. Given that our best friends and our sisters are often one and the same, this seems entirely appropriate!
