In our hectic lives, it’s easy to forget about those around us beyond our colleagues, friends, and family. Sometimes, with commutes and long hours, we don’t even get to know our neighbors.
However, there is a special day in September that encourages that sense of community to get to know our neighbors and help each other out. September 28th is known as National Good Neighbor Day.
Here are some ideas on being a good neighbor and starting a great relationship with those around you:
- Introduce yourself and bring a nice gift basket or a special gift of flowers or a plant.
- Ask if there is anything you can do to help an older neighbor who lives alone, such as yard work.
- Have a block party and invite all the neighbors at one time.
- Create a neighborhood watch group to look after each other even after this day is over.
And, our Atlanta flower shop can help with the gift baskets, flowers, and plants like these great ideas for your neighbors:
VIBRANT GARDEN CENTERPIECE
The Vibrant Garden Centerpiece is a beautiful gift, offering vivid fall flowers. The fall centerpiece includes sunflowers, stock, garden hydrangea, Tuscany roses, English blush garden roses, succulents, and silver eucalyptus.
‘ORANGE ZEST’ FALL VASE
Another choice from our fall flower collection is this orange flower arrangement. A glass cylinder holds orange Asiatic lilies and fall roses along with yellow chrysanthemums.
“FLOWERS, FRUIT, & CHOCOLATE!” GIFT BASKET
Then, we offer a wide range of gift baskets. This one brings a lot of great items together in one gift. There are fresh flowers and a variety of fruit as well as chocolates.
‘HARVEST FRUIT & GOURMET’ GIFT BASKET
This gift basket for your neighbors includes seasonal fruit, gourmet cheeses, crackers, nuts, and cookies.
DELUXE FRUIT & CHEESE BASKET
This is great for a block party because you can feed many people with one tasty treat. There are fresh fruit and cheeses, including grapefruit, apples, kiwi, orange, and other seasonal items. You can also opt for a smaller version that would be great for one neighbor.
