Al’s Florist joins the rest of the country this May 28th to honor those men and women who sacrificed their lives in service to country. We gather together to attend parades and ceremonies devoted to celebrating their legacy, and we also host dinners, parties and barbecues in our own homes, often outdoors. Flowers are a customary part of any celebration, while also being a traditional gift to offer someone who is deserving. In many cases, Memorial Day centers around the people who have been most impacted by the loss of someone who served in the military. We want the perfect s to express our feelings to them, but we also seek s that capture the spirit of the social events we host. Since Memorial Day weekend is often thought of as a prelude to summer, we see s that nod to the season as a crucial part of your event’s decor.
Most of the Memorial Day events taking place in our homes are casual, even while the ones we attend elsewhere are more formal and ceremonial. Therefore, we love a bright, sunny design like Smile Awhile to decorate a table. With its bold-faced suns and pops of purple lisianthus, this piece works beautifully on an outdoor table, too. It is also appropriate to offer someone who has been particularly impacted by the loss of a soldier, as suns have long symbolized admiration and loyalty.
Spend Memorial Day with the ones you love, remembering the ones you loved.
