#Sweetest Day, coming soon - #October 19th! - is a day where you give recognition to someone sweet and/or special. This#holiday is said to have originated in Cleveland, OH. It’s said that Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio philanthropist and#candy company employee started Sweetest Day. He wanted to bring happiness to orphans, shut-ins and under-privileged. His intent was to show these people that they were not forgotten. In 1922, he started this holiday by giving candy and small #gifts. He often used movie stars to distribute the gifts. Ideally - it’s best to continue that trend and giving candy, etc. to those less fortunate.
Did you know?
With this holiday always being on a Saturday it is often difficult to book a wedding venue on this day. It should be done well in advance.
Hallmark started making Sweetest Day cards in the mid-1960’s

The most stereotypical Father’s Day gift is the necktie, and is unofficially considered the official Father’s Day gift. More recently, there has been an unofficial not another tie trend that has inspired gift givers to get Dad anything but a tie for Father’s Day (unless it is a crazy or humorous one). Handyman gifts and camping, fishing and yard accessories as well as general outdoors related gifts are commonly given gifts. Gifts of food like gift baskets or anything that can be grilled such as steaks, sausages, pork and BBQ chicken are also popular. Depending on Dad’s interests, golf related, sports memorabilia, automotive and office gifts or toys can also be good choices.
In keeping with the above, please check out our super Father’s Day Gift Baskets at www.aspiregiftbaskets.labellabaskets.com today! We have something for EVERY Dad out there!
Mother’s Day 2013 - NEW ARRIVALS!!!
Remember to get all orders in to me by Friday, May 3rd to make sure the delivery will be on time. :)
There are many American Mother’s Day Traditions. Moms will be served breakfast in bed by their children and children will present their mothers with gifts. These are typically sentimental and thoughtful gifts expressing their love and gratitude and may be gifts that were handmade or bought in a store. This is also considered one of the busiest holidays for the telephone lines as many children will call their moms to wish them a Happy Mother’s Day. Restaurants have long wait times from brunch to dinner as taking mom “out to eat” is common. Of course, you don’t want mom to cook on “her” day.
Adult’s will give their mothers red carnations as this is the official flower of Mother’s Day. If their mother has passed white carnations are placed at the grave site.
Today, Mother’s Day is not just for moms but all women who have had a “motherly” influence in a person’s life. It can be aunts, grandmothers, godmothers, sisters, or even friends who receive recognition on this day. Many times a mother will give a gift to her daughter who is celebrating her 1st Mother’s Day.
A Mother’s Day Tradition in Germany is the children will present their mothers with a bouquet of flowers and giving a Mother’s Day card has become very popular. Mother’s Day is also celebrated on the second Sunday in May.
In England the Mother’s Day Tradition is that the domestic workers are allowed the day off to spend time with their families. Churches also give flowers to children to give to their moms as a token of love.
