Memorial Day falls on May 28th of this year. It began in the years following the Civil War as an event that was called Decoration Day. It was supposed to be a day of remembrance, and one that encouraged people to scatter flowers and decorate the graves of soldiers who died in combat during the bloodiest war in U.S. history. Today, people celebrate it as the unofficial start of summer. Festivities often include backyard barbecues and trips to a lake for camping or picnics. The Schaaf Floral team encourages you to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your table or picnic blanket setting with fresh flowers.
Blues for You is the ideal floral arrangement for the center of a small patio table. If you’ve got a large table and are planning to feed a crowd, why not place several vases of the design in the center of the table – running down its length? A cube-shaped vase sets the mood for a blue and purple bouquet that includes purple and blue irises, asters, fragrant stock, and statice.
Flowers are a vital addition to any Memorial Day event. Let Schaaf Floral help you choose or customize flower designs that will capture the essence of a holiday that celebrates patriotism and ushers the Summer season in – even before the calendar does.
