Flowers for Administrative Professionals Week

Every April, companies around the country recognize their secretaries, receptionists, bookkeepers, customer liaisons, office managers, and other professionals by celebrating Administrative Professionals Week. The observance was established in the 1950s - although, at the time, it was known as National Secretary’s Day. The purpose behind the holiday was to acknowledge the skilled yet sometimes unnoticed workers that keep America’s businesses running smoothly every day. The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) asserts that these deserving individuals are, in reality, the true backbone of corporate America. To help you thank your administrative professionals for their contributions all year long, Al's Florist has created a collection of gifts and floral designs sure to make them smile.  Read More about Flowers for Administrative Professionals Week »
