Interflora is challenging the baking blogger community to create a delicious treat for Grandparents’ Day on Sunday 7th October.
Whether it’s a recipe that’s been handed down to you from generation to generation, something you have fond memories of baking with your grandma in the kitchen or simply a delicious sweet treat to celebrate the occasion, we want you to get baking for Grandparents’ Day.
We’re asking you to blog about the occasion and then send us your photos and recipes which will be uploaded to our blog with a link to your website and put to the public vote.
The winner will receive a luxury arrangement of flowers of their choice plus a Grandparents’ Day Gift Basket which will be delivered to your chosen recipient in time for Grandparents’ Day. 5 runners up will also receive a Grandparents’ Day Gift Basket for their nominated grandparent.
To enter the competition simply email your photos, recipe and a link to your blog article to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 21st September.
Grandparents’ Day was founded in America in the 1970’s by Marian McQuade who campaigned tirelessly for a national holiday to recognise the contribution that the older generation gave to their families and wider society.
In 1990 the occasion was brought over to the UK by the charity Age Concern for the very same reasons. Since its introduction more than two decades ago, Grandparents’ Day has grown steadily in popularity but with only 66% of grandparents having celebrated the occasion there is still plenty more work to do to raise awareness of this special day and turn it into a widely celebrated event.
