We plan ahead for Memorial Day. It’s a three-day weekend. There are parades and commemorative celebrations. We may take the opportunity to host a special event—a backyard barbecue or a more poignant dinner at home with close friends and family. It’s one of those times that we think of as marking the beginning of summer, an occasion that we here at Blossom Flower Shops think is worth celebrating. So while we certainly remember and honor those who died in service to country, we also embrace the people we love, celebrating the long weekend together and looking ahead to a happy, sunny summer.
Set your Memorial Day table with something that speaks to both aspects of Memorial Day. Our Simply Tulips does this extremely well, if we do say so ourselves. The red picks up one of the colors of the flag and lends some patriotic spirit to our table. Tulips reflect the season nicely, and they’re not too formal or informal. The perfect design to set on your dining or patio table, these beauties are held together in a transparent square container amid a swirl of greens.
This Memorial Day, add flowers. They can carry in the symbolism of the day and the season.
