Patriotic Tributes for Memorial Day

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell

There are few days of the calendar year that carry more significance than Memorial Day.  And although many see the holiday as a day off for barbecues and get-togethers, taking the time to honor the sacrifices of brave patriots who have gone before us is a great way to begin the day. Whether to adorn a grave site – or to send a floral arrangement to a family still mourning a loss – you can rely on the experts at Breen’s Florist to design and deliver Memorial Day flowers and patriotic tributes which properly recognize and honor them. 

When having a bouquet or floral arrangement delivered to a home, select a vase as opposed to more funeral-styled flowers.  Within the traditional color palette of red, white, and blue, there is a long list of florals which can be utilized to create a meaningful tribute. Roses, lilies, carnations, daisies, mums, delphinium, hydrangea, and iris are among the more popular flowers for Memorial Day. You can also employ colored vases or flags and ribbons to create a patriotic  arrangement.

“They hover as a cloud of witnesses above this Nation.” – Henry Ward Beecher

If having flowers sent to a mausoleum or indoor memorial site, there are several ways to convey your respect. You may wish to send a red,white, and blue wreath, cross, or easel spray. To place flowers at an outdoor grave site, you may choose a funeral cone, basket, or urn. Call Breen’s Florist to discuss the best ways to send and display your gratitude.

Before the barbecues and parties, even before the parades – remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Call Breen’s Florist for the Memorial Day flowers and patriotic tributes that will beautifully show your respects.
