Memorial Day has always been a hallowed occasion, a time when we commemorate our fallen soldiers and their service to country. This is why the Bagoy’s Florist & Home team prepares a range of floral tributes—we want to ensure that the families of our dedicated servicemen and women find exactly what they need as they pay their respects. But the long weekend is also a time to gather with close friends and family to celebrate the arrival of summer. This is often a weekend full of events, from ceremonies and parades to backyard barbecues and pool parties. People come together to remember the brave soldiers in their lives, but also to enjoy the company of their loved ones.
We love a floral piece that walks the line between reverent and hopeful; something that would speak to the seriousness of the occasion, but also to the arrival of summer and therefore the sense of new beginnings. Our Beautiful Brita does just that. Simple, fragrant white lilies are accented by greenery and curly willow. A graceful, tasteful design, these can be placed on a picnic table or at a grave site.
On May 28, as we remember all of the soldiers who have given their lives for their country, let us also acknowledge the people we cherish in our lives today.
