Kare’s Holiday & Events Calendar

What’s happening! Days and events that you can decorate for!

I usually start decorating for each holiday or event about 30 days in advance so when the holiday or event comes, on the next day those decorations get stored until the next year. If I am selling, there is the pre-holiday sale and the after holiday sale.

I will be adding events and special days as the year goes on, but it is a start for when to display and change the window dressings!

For birthdays and anniversaries I usually send cards out 10 days before the date of my loved ones and the same for all the other holidays of the year with the exception of Christmas or year end cards. They go out a month in advance to avoid the Holiday mess at the Post office at the end of the year. It seems November is my “crash time” where every thing comes to a head. And then January is my crunch time again. But that is me and how it goes here! Your calendar may be a lot different.

Retail calendars usually run 4 months in advance of the actual holiday.

Weddings can be at anytime, but if you are involved in the floral end of design, a year may or may not be enough time to prepare in this tough economy and where the supply chain is still in disarray. June has been the typical crunch month, but like babies, weddings can come at anytime.

And speaking of babies, Baby showers and bridal showers need advance planning.

Funerals can happen at any time, but visits to the cemetery often occur on Memorial Day and other patriotic holidays. When ordering you may want to give plenty of advance lead time if you are looking for an expression of love that is custom.

Lastly there are the graduations. And the other events one needs to fill in their own blanks for!

The biggest factor of any of these events is seasonal flowers and when the typical time to put an order in for supplies. That takes a vigil in watching your suppliers specials and other than having a large supply on hand, you may run into waiting times and likely shortages. Good suppliers take some research to do in finding the suppliers that will suit your needs

I will update this calendar periodically

  1. This calendar is only meant for a list to get started on monthly events. Dates are not posted and you will have to schedule your actual days according to the actual holiday date.

  2. If you are like me, calendar planning is a daily ritual! I sent out my e-News the other day and the thought occurred that I should mark my calendar for the future! After all, I cannot bump out a formatted Email over-nite. Or can I? well maybe not, with all the blogging and projects I do but I can sure send one in a click.

    I start planning my Emails about 3 months in advance with a little old news, a little new news and something or a tip I hope my readers find interesting.
