Celebrating Father's Day: A Guide to Flowers for Your Hero

Celebrating Father's Day: A Guide to Flowers for Your Hero

Father's Day is a cherished occasion worldwide. This day has been chosen to honour the extraordinary men who give us our lives, guide us, and shape our lives. In the UAE, we celebrate Father's Day on the 21st of June - a date distinct from the international tradition of the third Sunday in June (which falls on the 16th of June this year). The Emirati government chose this date to coincide with the first day of summer. It represents the nurturing role fathers play in the lives of their children.

21st June is the day of the Summer Solstice - when days become brighter and warmer. Just as our fathers shine their light and wisdom on their families and nurture them.

A Father's Love: A Beacon of Strength and Guidance

"الاب ليس فرداً عادياً في الاسرة، انما هو روح العائلة وقلبها النابض" 


"The shelter of a father's love, Is a shade in the scorching sun of life."

Undoubtedly, our fathers are our first heroes, our mentors, and our confidants.

Father's Day is an opportunity to express our gratitude for the myriad sacrifices our dads have made for us and the family, the wisdom they have imparted, and the unconditional love they have showered upon us. It's a day to celebrate the remarkable bond between us and our fathers - a bond that transcends time and distance.

The Language of Flowers: Expressing Gratitude and Admiration

Flowers have a unique ability to convey emotions that words often fail to express. They are a symbol of love, appreciation, and respect, making them the perfect gift to honour the men who have stood tall to protect us from the challenges and wrath of life. This Father's Day, here are some of the flowers you can pick to pay the perfect floral tribute to your father:

  • Roses: Roses are symbols of love and reverence not only in Islam but in almost all cultures. Hence, they make perfect Father's Day gifts. Their sweet fragrance expresses deep admiration, gratitude, and the beautiful bond that only exists between a child and his/her father.
  • Sunflowers: Sunflowers, with their tall stalks and sunny faces, are like fathers who stand tall against all challenges and still spread cheer and warmth in our lives. In the UAE, being a desert country, we realise how resilient sunflowers are - just like our fathers who are a constant source of unwavering support and guidance.
  • Orchids: Orchids, symbols of strength, luxury, and love, are a popular choice for Father's Day bouquets in the UAE. Their unique beauty and resilience in the desert climate mirror a father's unwavering support and enduring affection. The exotic elegance of orchids also conveys a sense of admiration and respect for the special man being celebrated.
  • Carnations: Carnations are symbols of admiration and gratitude. No wonder, they are traditional Father's Day flowers. They flourish in the desert heat too - and thus, symbolise a father's resilience, strength, and unwavering devotion to his family, even in challenging circumstances.
  • Lilies: Lilies represent purity, innocence, and rebirth. Gifting lilies is a way to honour your father's unwavering faith in you and his belief in your potential.

Our exquisite collection of flowers bouquet is designed to capture the essence of your relationship and convey your heartfelt emotions. Check it out and create a memorable and meaningful Father's Day tribute that your father will remember forever.
