Remember Our Veterans at Christmas

By Russ Griffin on December 10, 2018 in Christmas, Holiday Flowers, Sympathy. 0 Comments

For families of fallen veterans, the holidays can be a difficult time of reflection and remembrance. It's difficult to go through the holiday season without your loved ones by your side. When you want to honor and pay tribute to your heroic loved one, consider participating in Wreaths Across America, a wreath-laying ceremony started at Arlington National Cemetery and now being held all across the country. Place a beautiful Christmas wreath or floral arrangement on the grave site of your loved one to help us all remember our veterans at Christmas. The floral professionals at Griffin's Floral Designs have created a gorgeous collection of holiday bouquets for you to choose from. Read More about Remember Our Veterans at Christmas

Sympathy Flowers for Funeral Services

Some events in life are more difficult and emotional than others. When it is time to say goodbye to a loved one, it can be challenging to determine exactly which flowers are appropriate to send to the funeral service. The team at Griffin's Floral Design has provided the florals for many of your milestones, and this occasion is no different. We are happy to help you navigate the types of arrangements available, Which Flowers are Best? Gladioli are considered the customary flowers for funeral services, as they are called the "flower of remembrance". They carry the additional meaning of loyalty, strength of character and integrity. Gladioli are graceful, elongated stems of flowers which look like a sword, which is how they got their name (the sword of the gladiator). They occur in a wide variety of colors and add striking drama to any arrangement. Although gladioli have traditional meaning, however, roses, carnations and lilies are also very popular options when ordering custom funeral flowers.
