Memorial Day offers us the chance to remember and celebrate the soldiers in our lives who served their country and sacrificed their lives in doing so. It’s also a time when we tend to gather together, owing to the various parades and commemorative ceremonies that unfold over the long weekend. There’s something somber, reflective, and yet hopeful and happy about May 28th; we’re often with our closest people, looking ahead to summer and enjoying our time together, but we’re feeling reverent, too. The designers at Central Square Florist know that there are a range of floral considerations for this weekend, in particular, everything from a nice arrangement for the outdoor table to memorial flowers for the mantel or gravesite. We’ve got them all.
One design we particularly love for Memorial Day is our Blissful Bouquet, which is a piece that is graceful and poignant, but not too heavy-handed. It references spring and summer but is also the sort of arrangement that feels appropriate for a solemn occasion.
Remember your loved one with flowers this Memorial Day, even if it’s a private gesture on your own table, dresser or mantel. Delivering flowers to a gravesite is also a customary ritual, along with gathering with family and friends to both celebrate existing relationships and mourn those that have been lost.
