Generous bosses and co-workers everywhere recently celebrated Secretaries Day (a.k.a. Administrative Professionals Day) by sending flowers, buying lunches and giving those who help them behind the scenes other accolades.

Now, it's the receptionist's chance to be appreciated! According to, May 11 (or the second Wednesday of May each year) is Receptionist Day.

The website suggests that business owners and bosses make a point to recognize the work that their receptionists do all year long by sending thank you flowers to mark the occasion.

According to the National Receptionist Association, "receptionists are front line personnel and are responsible for making a positive first impression for the company. Their skills are of critical importance in creating and maintaining the image and capabilities that the company has represented in their sales and advertising efforts."

Flowers are an ideal way to recognize and appreciate a great receptionist. Choices for Receptionist Day Flowers range from spring flower bouquets featuring in-season blooms such as tulips, lilies, daisies and roses to flower plants and other potted plants that can be displayed on the desk for longer periods of time.
