Each year around the holidays, while many families are making plans for joy and glad tidings, the families of fallen military veterans are often grieving the loss of their loved one. The holidays can be difficult for anyone who has experienced this kind of loss, so the Wreaths Across America wreath-laying ceremony was developed as a way to actively show honor and pay tribute to our fallen heroes. Started at Arlington National Cemetery, this program now extends across the nation and abroad. Let this be a time of remembrance and gratitude when you decorated your loved one's final resting place with a wreath or beautiful patriotic holiday flowers. The floral artisans at Schaaf Floral have a beautiful line of flowers and wreaths dedicated to honoring the memory of our heroic veterans. Read More about Patriotic Holiday Flowers »
