F5 Memorial Day is Monday, May 25th. Throughout Columbus, there will be many ways to reflect on our fallen heroes, including ceremonies, celebrations, and festive occasions that focus on patriotism and how much we value the freedom that we hold dear. They fought for us and now we must remember and honor them.F1

At all Memorial Day celebrations and remembrances, flowers are a way to reflect the beauty and love represented in remembering these heroes, many of which were our loved ones. To help you get ready for this weekend’s events, here are some ideas to celebrate the Red, White, and Blue whether you are at a gravesite service, barbecue, parade, or block party:

  • The 36-carnation and 24-carnation wreath offers a patriotic display of red, white, and blue carnations along with baby’s breath, fresh greenery, and ribbons attached to an easel.F2
  • The Patriotic Spirit Spray is a stunning standing spray of red carnations, white gladiola, and blue delphinium along with greenery and patriotic ribbons also attached to an easel.
  • The 36-carnation and 24-carnation option of patriotic flowers is also available as a hand-arrangement within a garden vase.
  • The American Patriot Sympathy Wreath has red roses, white mums and blue delphinium along with greenery and ribbons.F3

Along with these stunning flower arrangement, bouquet, and centerpiece ideas for Memorial Day celebrations and remembrances, you can also opt to create your own special floral arrangement by visiting our Columbus, OH flower shop now and working with our floral design team to create custom Memorial Day flower arrangements, Memorial Day centerpieces, or Memorial Day wreaths and standing wreaths.   F6

Another nice gift item for a special loved one is “A Soldier’s Prayer Throw and Easel,” which offers an inspirational prayer that has been embroidered into the throw. The prayer says, “Guide and protect this Soldier, oh Lord as through hard times of war we travel. Give us strength for the battle, hope for the future and courage to face the unknown. Keep this Soldier safe from harm as we pray for Peace.” It offers a nice sentiment and reminds us all of the incredible fight they willingly take on.

Throughout this weekend and on Memorial Day, we can deliver throughout the Columbus, Ohio area to your home or Memorial Day ceremony site. Call, order online, or visit our Columbus flower shop today! On behalf of our entire staff, we want to extend our best wishes to all the families that can proudly say they had a loved one fight the good fight for our country!
