Flowers to Celebrate International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is an annual event. While it’s important to recognize the accomplishments of influential women past and present, let us not forget that this day also offers a chance to celebrate all of today’s gorgeous she-roes, or in my case, shoe-roes :). What better way to acknowledge the power of female beauty than by honouring them with flowers for International Women's Day?


Why we Celebrate with Flower for International Women's Day

At Small Flower {floral studio}, we understand and appreciate the significance of International Women's Day. We have chosen to feature the stunning Acacia Mimosa as our March flower. This delicate yet powerful bloom holds a special place in our hearts and embodies everything this day represents.

Originally a tradition in Italy, men and children would meander through the streets with their hands adorned with Acacia Mimosa branches to honour and show respect to women everywhere. This beautiful gesture has now symbolized women's accomplishments, strength, and indispensable contributions to society.

As we envision this heartwarming tradition taking root in Calgary, we can't help but feel inspired by the idea of weaving it into our cultural tapestry. Let's champion the cause of "Hear it for the Girls!" and embrace this timeless emblem of renewal, purity, and strength.

The Acacia Mimosa holds symbolic value and brings joy and warmth with its vibrant, sunny disposition and fragrance. Gifting this bloom to your loved ones is a way to acknowledge their anticipation for spring and uplift their spirits as they embrace the awakening of the new season.

Join us at Small Flower {floral studio} in embracing spring's renewal with Acacia Mimosa – a resplendent symbol of hope, resilience, and the power of women. Let us spread love, appreciation, and admiration for all the amazing women in our lives.

This year, we committed to celebrating our ladies in full bloom! So grab your favourite bunch of vivacious petals (and maybe even add our green goddess if you feel so inclined) and join us as we shout from the rooftops how extraordinary all women are and that we are all worth celebrating with flowers on International Women's Day.


Every year, March 8th marks International Women’s Day – a day dedicated to celebrating the achievements of women around the world. And what better way to celebrate than with flowers? This special occasion brings to mind the flower colours associated with International Women’s Day: purple, white and green.
