National Rescue Dog Day is proudly observed annually on May 20th. National Rescue Dog Day was founded to bring awareness to the countless number of amazing dogs in shelters waiting to be adopted. The day also aims to promote humane education, and to encourage spaying and neutering.
At Floral Design by Heidi, we will be celebrating our cherished rescue dog Babalou, whom we love and enjoy everyday! Find him on Instagram at @babaloutheblue to read his rescue story.
When it comes to flowers however, not all of them are safe for our pets. But do not fear, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) has put together a handy list of pet-safe flowers to make sure you’re keeping your furry friends safe, healthy and out of harm’s way.
We understand curious noses and paws might be interested in flowers, so It’s best to always keep your bouquets and arrangements up out of paws’ reach for everyone to enjoy. It's also important to pay attention to your plants’ and flowers’ labels and always refer to your vet for the best guidance for your individual pet.
NATIONAL WINE DAY IS MAY 25
We don’t typically need an “official” reason to celebrate over a bottle of wine, but May 25th is National Wine Day and we will be enjoying it to the fullest. Why not make the most of this day and host a wine tasting with friends, family or your special someone? We encourage you to celebrate this fun day with your favorite wines paired with luxurious chocolates and a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. Here’s what we recommend:
Love red wine? Create an elegant addition to a red wine tasting with our gorgeous Ruby Red Splendor display of red roses and elegant white lilies combined with tropical ferns and delivered in a stylish glass vase.
Celebrating the love of white wine with friends? Then our Beautiful Friendship bouquet is the perfect choice. This gorgeous yellow medley of sunshine will look stunning paired with a bottle of your favorite white wine.
If pink is your thing, then our Monet’s Garden Basket is the ideal centerpiece for a dazzling display of Rosé. Featuring soft hues of pinks in a cute little basket, an outdoor wine tasting wouldn't be the same without one.
If you’ll be enjoying a variety of wines, our Ferrero Rocher Golden Chocolates Box pairs perfectly with all of your favorites. These 24 extraordinary chocolates come in a variety of tastes and textures and will bring out the flavor of the wine, making the experience even more indulgent. We will be enjoying these with some of our favorite Florida fruit wines from The Naples Winery.
We hope you have as much fun celebrating these two special days as much as we do. Taking a little time out to celebrate the simple things in life is always a breath of fresh air. Cheers!
