Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day but the recognition of what our vets have done for this country started late last week with our local Columbus Veteran’s Day parade that was held on Friday, November 6th. However, there is still time to let them know just how much they are appreciated for their bravery. We offer same-day service throughout Columbus or you can come pick up a special patriotic flower arrangement at any one of our four Columbus flower shops. Check out these examples of what we offer for Veteran’s Day: 36 Carnation Wreath Patriotic is a 22-inch wreath with 36 carnations in patriotic colors. It also features baby’s breath and greenery. The floral wreath can be attached to an easel. 36 Carnation Casket Spray Patriotic also contains patriotic carnations as well as greenery in a spray design. The Patriotic Spirit Spray contains red carnations, white gladiola, and blue delphinium along with a patriotic ribbon in red, white, and blue. Sea to Shining Sea is a gorgeous flower arrangement in a cobalt blue vase. It contains a variety of flowers in patriotic hues. 24 Carnation Urn Patriotic has patriotic carnations placed inside an urn.
