Honor Them With Flowers

Flowers are the perfect gift for any occasion, and they have a language all their own. Couple that with the talent and skill offered by your local florist and you have something personalized and beautiful that says exactly what you want to say exactly how you want to say it. Your local florist can create a themed arrangement, one featuring the veteran’s favorite flower or even one as a memorial to a fallen loved one.

Personalize with Local

When you buy local, you have the option of being as detailed in the process as you like. You can outline what you want down to the smallest detail or just tell them to make it beautiful. You can choose from what’s available or have a custom piece made just for you. When you shop local, you know you’ll get what you paid for and more!

We use Veterans Day to say ‘Thank You’ to those who fought and still fight for our daily freedoms. Shouldn’t you say it with flowers?

Don’t Forget Veterans Day

Veterans Day 2011

Any opportunity to honor the men and women who serve, or have served, in our armed forces is one that should be fervently and enthusiastically taken. But November 11th, Veteran’s Day, is more than just one of those random opportunities, it’s a national holiday that has been set aside for the purpose of recognizing and giving thanks to everyone who has served.

How much more, then, should we celebrate them and their accomplishments on this day? What are you doing to honor the veterans in your life?

Honoring the Veterans

There are a myriad of ways to honor those who have served in the armed forces, from attending a local parade to visiting the VA hospital or volunteering your services at a retirement home. But for those veterans who populate your life, those in your family or group of friends, a more personal touch is required. For them, what better way to say thank you than a gorgeous bouquet or floral arrangement?

A patriotic selection, featuring the colors red, white and blue, instills the proper tone of national pride while also offering your veteran the beauty, peace and enjoyment guaranteed with any gift of flowers.

Don’t neglect your veteran on this Veterans Day, show them how much you appreciate their service. Offer an elegant gift of flowers.

Celebrating Veterans Day

Veterans Day 2011

When we think November, giving thanks usually comes to mind. Sure, there’s Thanksgiving… but there is a holiday before then that deserves more ‘thanks’ than we can ever give — Veterans Day. (November 11, 2011)

Veterans Day is the official day set aside to thank and remember all of our selfless, heroic veterans for the sacrifices they made in their lives to protect our freedom. Unlike Memorial Day, where we remember our lost heros, Veteran’s Day is for us to thank and celebrate ALL veterans, living or dead, wartime and peacetime.

How To Celebrate Veterans Day

  • Attend a Veteran’s Day program, concert or parade.
  • Wear a red, white and blue corsage or boutonniere.
  • Take a moment of silence at noon, on November 11, to honorably remember those who served and died.
  • Place red flowers, such as roses or carnations, or a red, white and blue bouquet at your local military memorials and monuments.
  • Contribute to a Veteran’s Day ceremony in your community.
  • Place a Veteran’s Day ‘thank you’ ad in your local newspapers, community newsletters or church flyers. [Read more…]

A Tribute To Our Veterans

It’s finally Veterans Day again; the day we honor our fallen, retired, and active soldiers and sailors for their heroic dedication to our country. Many have served in several wars, seen multiple overseas tours, and have dealt with separation from friends and family.

There is no soldier that is without a large measure of bravery, strength of character, pride and patriotism. For that and for showing us that “gallant” is still a relative term, Flower Shop Network would like to officially thank all servicemen in/of the United States Army, United States Navy, United States Marine Corp, United States Air Force,  United States Coast Guard, and National Guard. You are all deeply and warmly appreciated. Our very best wishes for you on this day and the days ahead.
