At Memorial Day this year, you may be having a graveside service or family get together to remember loved ones who have sacrificed for our country. At Crouch Florist we have created some beautiful standalone wreaths and sprays of patriotic flowers that will look beautiful at a family gathering or stand beside a graveside service beautifully.

The Weekend We’ve Been Waiting For

Memorial Day is first and foremost an occasion to remember and to celebrate the legacy of those soldiers who sacrificed their lives in service to country. But it's also a time when we get together with friends and family to take advantage of an additional "weekend" day on what is thought of as the cusp of summer. We long to be outside, so we host our parties and dinners there. We want to soak in the pool, and it's often warm enough to do so. We want to enjoy a barbecue that goes way past sundown because, frankly, we can. No matter how you're planning to spend Memorial Day, flowers are in order. Crouch Florist has the perfect ones.

Red, White & Blue Memorial Day Flowers

After the Civil War ended, families who were mourning the loss of husbands and sons looked for a way to honor them, and established the observance of Decoration Day. It was recognized unofficially for one hundred years, until in 1971 it was given a new name and made an official U.S. holiday. Memorial Day allows us to stop and reflect on the sacrifices made by those who gave their lives in the commission of their military service, from the 1860's right up to modern day. Whether looking to decorate a grave site or send a meaningful bouquet to a loved one, the floral designers at Crouch Florist are honored to assist. ¬†Veteran's Day and Memorial Day are often confused or even thought to be interchangeable. However thee is an important distinction - Veteran's Day honors all who have served and honors those still alive while Memorial Day exalts the memory of those who have died.¬† Read More about Red, White & Blue Memorial Day Flowers »
