Each year on the last Monday in May, Americans come together to celebrate Memorial Day. This day commemorates all who have fallen while serving in the United States military. It’s a time for remembering and honoring, and for many, grieving the loss of their loved ones.
Though it’s a somber day, it’s important to take time to celebrate the lives and sacrifices of these incredible people that gave everything they had to preserve our freedom. With that in mind, here are some of the ways we here at Lilygrass Flowers and Decor like to honor these American heroes.
Wreaths are one of the most popular ways to commemorate the day. Red, white, and blue are the traditional colors, of course, but other colors can be used as well. If your wreath is in honor of someone specific, consider personalizing it with their favorite colors, a plush animal, or even photos, letters, or mementos. Any of these items can be attached to your Lilygrass wreath if dropped by our store in advance or added after you pick up your order. The wreaths can be placed on a headstone or in a special place as a remembrance of someone or simply as a sign of respect for the day.
Patriotic arrangements for graves
To honor this day, many family members take flowers to the grave of their loved one who died in service to our country. Options range from full arrangements in a non-breakable vase or basket to simple hand-tied bouquets or even single flowers for family members to leave in their memory.
Corsages for loved ones
For family members who attend Memorial Day parades or other events, a corsage is a wonderful option. Traditional patriotic colors and even small American flags can be woven into a special Memorial Day corsage that can later be dried and saved as a memento or placed on a headstone. As with wreaths, a small photo or other personalized elements can be added as well.
