The holidays are a wonderful time during which we hold family and friends close, enjoying every minute we have to spend with people we may only see rarely. It’s more than a special occasion, it’s a moment we look forward to all year. There are some loved ones who can’t be with us during this time, so it’s important to find a way to honor their memory and include them in our celebration. That’s why Central Square Florist encourages you to create a meaningful tribute or ritual that acknowledges the ones who can’t be with you.
Something as simple as setting up a framed photograph of grandparents or other loved ones and clustering around some candles and flowers can be the perfect memorial. You may decide to put out your loved one’s favorite flowers, or host a dinner with family members who will also be feeling the loss of this particular loved one. A piece like Holiday Elegance is both seasonally appropriate but also speaks to the solemn, reverent nature of a memorial dinner or gathering.
Accompanied by some taper candles and the warm, loving faces you’ll have gathered around, an all-white design at the center of your table creates a focus for your memories. Tell stories about the ones who have passed and enjoy a lovely meal in their honor. Your holidays will be all the richer for it.
