International Women’s Day is one of our favorite holidays here at the store. As a woman’ owned business in Durham, NC, there’s nothing that satisfies us more than a day that celebrates the contributions of women to all areas of society.
At the same time that we’re in a truly celebratory mood, we recognize that both here at home and around the world, there’s many women that lack the options and privileges we have. They lack agency, freedom, and equality. And while we acknowledge the contributions of women in our lives and celebrate the progress we’re making towards equality, Women’s Day is also an opportunity to acknowledge that for many women, their day hasn’t arrived yet and we hope for them and with them that it’s coming soon.
We encourage you to learn more about women’s day here.
Here at our small Durham Florist shop, we’re prepping some orders for the day. Stems of roses and lilies and are coming together in beautiful arrangements and we’re excited to see them head out to the people they’re gifted to. We invite you to honor the contributions of women in your life by visiting our online store, donating a cause that supports women’s issues or simply exploring the day itself.
