“They hover as a cloud of witnesses above this Nation.” – Henry Ward Beecher
There are few days more somber in meaning than Memorial Day. And although many see the holiday as a time for barbecues and time off with friends, many still take the time to honor the sacrifices of those heroes and patriots who have gone before us. Whether to decorate a grave site – or to send a bouquet to a family still grieving a loss – you can trust the team at Blossom Flower Shops to design and deliver Memorial Day flowers which properly recognize and honor them.
When sending a bouquet or floral arrangement to a family home, it is appropriate to choose a vase or bouquet (as opposed to more funeral-styled flowers). Within the given color palette of red, white, and blue, there are many flowers which can be used to design a beautiful tribute. Roses, carnations, lilies, mums, daisies, hydrangea, delphinium, and iris are among the more popular blooms for Memorial Day flowers. You can also utilize colored vases and containers or ribbons and flags to create a patriotic display.
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell
If sending flowers to a mausoleum, cemetery, or other memorial site, there are additional ways to express your respect. You may wish to send a red,white, and blue easel spray, cross, or wreath; or for a less formal occasion, you may also place flowers at the grave site in a funeral cone, basket, or urn. Ask for a silk arrangement for a long-lasting tribute.
Before the parties and gatherings, even before the parades – show your honor and gratitude to those who laid down their lives for a cause greater than themselves. Call Blossom Flower Shops for the Memorial Day flowers and displays you to show your respects.
For all occasions, Blossom Flower Shops deliver across White Plains & Yonkers.
