October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a month where we recognize, inform, and support those who are fighting breast cancer as well as those who have won the fight. Although this year's activities and events may look different due to COVID-19, we can make the most of virtual channels to raise awareness and offer support.

Volunteer with an organization that helps breast cancer patients. Offer to help loved ones who may have breast cancer by doing things that help them while they focus on fighting the disease. Provide money to organizations that research or support the fight against breast cancer. On a personal level for those in your social circle, you can also send a special thoughtful gift during the month to let them know you support them and are there to help fight cancer alongside them. Or, it's also a good time to celebrate someone who has beat breast cancer. We have a wide range of pink-themed flowers available in our Memphis flower shop and through our website that show you are thinking pink during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have a wide range of pink flower arrangements to choose from, including garden style designs with lush greenery and a wide range of flower varieties.

Even our gift packages offer a pink theme that fits this month's awareness campaign. If you don't see anything that works for you, call us or stop by our Memphis flower shop so you can work directly with our floral design team on a custom pink-themed bouquet. We even have pink blooming plants that also make a long-lasting thoughtful gift, including azaleas, orchids, and more. Just ask us what's available when you are ready to place your order.

As a longtime sponsor, Pugh's Flowers continues to support this year's event. During the 11th year, the fundraising event looks a bit different, but we wanted to ensure that it continued no matter what was happening around us! There are more prizes available, including those for team captains who raise $1,000. They will receive a commemorative Camp Good Grief 5K 2020 sweatshirt. The drive-through packet pick-up will feature s’mores packs for families and photo opportunities with Pughy, our mascot. Other activities are also planned.

The loss of a loved one is one of the hardest things we will ever face in life. The last few months have been some of the toughest because the loss has come with the inability to say good bye with a funeral. Now, there are more opportunities to hold intimate funerals to say our goodbyes. However, we may not still be able to have all our loved ones together for these or see our loved ones to let them know we are thinking of them. Don't worry because our Memphis flower shop is here to help by providing you a wide range of sympathy flowers for the home or for the funeral service. Here are some of the sympathy flowers we offer: Religious floral designs with crystal crosses or floral crosses; Funeral baskets and dishes; Standing sprays and wreaths; Blooming plants and green plants; Patriotic flower arrangements; and Bouquets, hand-tied bouquets, and flower arrangements. You can select the type of flowers and colors that may address your loved one's preferences or those of your recipient. We can also make a custom sympathy flower arrangement. Just call our Memphis flower shop or stop by to work with our floral design team on something just for your recipient or your loved one's funeral.

While 2020 hasn't been quite what we've expected and it's put a lot of challenges in front of us, the good news is that we are still here. We have our friends and family members and continue to focus on these positive forces in our life. Reasons to Celebrate in August We may know others that are still struggling, and that's what makes this year's National Smile Week even more important.
