The inception of the “Shades of Romeo” brand dates back to 2018, evolving from a passion for presenting complimentary flowers to strangers on the streets. This altruistic endeavor began as a personal pleasure, eventually leading to a unique initiative.
31 May International Flowers Day
In 2018, a notable observation was made regarding the International Day of Flowers, designated on January 19. However, the timing, coinciding with the winter season in the northern hemisphere, posed logistical challenges for a widespread celebration. Undeterred, the act of gifting flowers persisted, giving rise to an aspiration to relocate the International Day of Flowers to a more globally accessible timeframe — specifically, a window between late spring and early summer.
The carefully chosen date of May 31, coinciding with a bank holiday in England, was selected. Orchids, esteemed for their elegance, became the signature bloom. Subsequently, it was discovered that orchids hold a botanical heritage spanning over 100 million years, adding a historical depth to the chosen flower.
