“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself”. – Joseph Campbell
On May 29, we celebrate heroes in all of America’s history, beginning with the Civil War and leading right up to contemporary times. While Veteran;s Day celebrates all military personnel, Memorial Day holds the solemn distinction of being a holiday that gives respect only to those who have fallen in battle. This year, before heading out to the parties and picnics, take some time to remember the brave men and women who lost their lives in defense of freedom. Rose Hill Flowers would consider it an honor to help you to choose the patriotic flowers that will show your respect.
Red, white, and blue are the patriotic colors of the day, but how you combine and design them makes all the difference aesthetically. For instance, our True Blue bouquet, shown above, relies heavily on the usage of white flowers – roses, tulips, hydrangea, and daisies – and brings in the red and blue only in the vase and ribbon.
Did You Know? The colors of the flag all have meaning – red stands for courage, white for purity, and blue for loyalty.
Show your appreciation with patriotic flowers that are truly spectacular – red roses and blue delphinium add the pop of color behind elegant white calla lilies, resulting in flowers with an air of sophisticated beauty. If you are sending a bouquet to the family of a soldier who never made it home, this is a luxurious choice that will convey your pride and sympathy, while being entirely appropriate to send to a residence.
Rose Hill Flowers’s collection of art hearts offers this patriotic gift, named “Faith, Family, Freedom.” Each heart includes a matching cord and a metallic key that fits into a keyhole on the reverse and acts as a stand for displaying the heart on a shelf or table.
Whether flowers or a thoughtful gift, you can count on the experts at Rose Hill Flowers to have the perfect item to express your heart. We deliver throughout the greater Nashville area, and look forward to helping you on this very special day.
