What is International Women's Day?
International Womens Day is a day when we celebrate the wonderful women in our lives. Its a day to recognise and mark their brilliance. Its also a chance to reflect on the challenges women all over the world still face and how we might tackle them. The theme for International Womens Day this year is #ChoosetoChallenge it invites us to challenge gender inequality wherever we see it.
"My daughter is a keyworker and has been working long hours. I sent her flowers to say how proud I am of her. She absolutely loved them." - Jeanette

During the pandemic I brought all my equipment home from the shop and started operating as a one-man band from my garden shed. You can take the girl out of the florist (shop) but not the florist out of the girl. Wherever I go floristry will be in my bones forever!
Fiona Andrews, from Lockwoods, Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Our family has always said you should find a job you love and youll never work a day in your life! With over 75 years of trading under our belt, I still think this is the best job in the world. I buy thousands of flowers every year and am always delighted to discover new colours and varieties to use in our designs.
Sarah Smith, from Flowers by Sarah Ann, Heybridge, Essex
Weve been so busy since lockdown. Im checking on people as I do deliveries - that they're ok and offering to do peoples shopping or pick up things for them. Sometimes I think I'm the only person they've seen in days. We cant offer them a hug but we can give a few kind words.
While were talking about amazing women, dont forget Mothers Day is just around the corner. Whether shes mum, or like a mum, weve got gorgeous blooms to celebrate her.
The Interflora difference
You wont find our flowers on a factory production line theyre crafted stem by stem using the finest blooms just for your special someone.
Made by artisans
Your flowers are hand-crafted by an exceptionally talented local artisan florist. When you buy from us you support the brilliant British high street.
Call us old-fashioned but we insist on hand-delivering our bouquets. Theyre made to be seen (and admired!) not hidden away in a box.
Want to celebrate even more brilliant women?
Then you need an Interflora Delivery Pass. A Gold pass costs £12 and gets you free standard delivery all year round, that means youll only need to send two more gifts to start saving money (and with Mothers Day coming up, thats already one off the list)
