Memorial Day can be a solemn occasion, but it’s also the chance to come together with friends and family to remember our heroes and to celebrate the coming of summer. The three-day weekend provides us with an opportunity to see the people in our lives now and to commemorate the ones we have lost. Griffin’s Floral Designs recognizes that this is a time when people host backyard barbecues and pool parties, taking advantage of the extra time to enjoy each other’s company. And where there’s company, there’s flowers.
We love a design that speaks to the poignancy of the occasion, but also captures the spirit of relaxed celebration. To that end, we see a piece like our Shimmering Rosatta as the perfect emblem to put on the dinner or outdoor table or to offer a guest of honor, particularly someone who is remembering a fallen soldier. Roses, hydrangea and calla lily are respectful without being somber, offering a clean, restful palette that would also make for a fine piece of decor at a Memorial Day event.
The stone container adds a touch of the rustic to this otherwise elegant display. However you spend Memorial Day, select the flowers that will capture the varied nature of the occasion.
