The Memorial Day Flowers event is upon us, and while we are not supplying flowers this year due to product shortages, we wanted to share these resources so that you can still participate in your local community. It is so important to recognize the fallen men and women who have served our country, and this is a great program to be a part of.
There are several ways to use roses within your communities:
- Contact your local cemetery and set up a table to distribute roses to visitors. Each visitor will be given two stems of roses: one to place on a headstone and one to take home in remembrance of a friend or relative. Optionally, you could provide a service for families that are unable to visit by sending a digital picture of the rose lying on the headstone.
- Distribute roses at your local Memorial Day parade or ceremony.
- Place a sign at your shop offering a free Memorial Day Rose to anyone who comes in on the preceding Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
If you participate, please post photos & tag #honoringvets #memorialdayflowers #cemeteryflowers
Participating in the Memorial Day Flowers “Florists & Community” program is a wonderful way to connect with your community and honor those who served. A single rose, placed on a headstone, is a floral expression of appreciation.
