Veterans Day is November 11th, and it's that important day where we stop and pay tribute to the amazing men and women who put themselves at risk to ensure our freedom as a country and as citizens. Our veterans and even those still on active duty in the Marines, Air Force, Navy, Army, and Coast Guard are true American heroes. They selfishly put themselves out there and in danger to keep our country safe. This is a special day to honor those still with us as well as those who have past. Unfortunately, this Veterans Day may not look like those of the past due to the current health concerns. We won't be able to have the parades and public ceremonies this year. However, that doesn't mean we can't show our veterans how much we appreciate them and give them the tribute they deserve this Veterans Day. This may be a call or a letter. You may even be able to stop by and show your tribute in-person. Since there is no parade this year, why not create your own caravan for a drive-by parade?! You can also send a patriotic floral tribute to a beloved veteran in your life. We deliver to homes and care facilities to make it easier for you to show your appreciation. Of course, we can't forget those veterans that we have lost. Our Memphis flower shop also makes standing sprays, floral baskets and vases, and other remembrance floral arrangements in red, white, and blue that you can leave at a graveside or send to the loved ones of a lost veteran. All of our patriotic flower displays come in various sizes and styles. Ask us what flowers we have available at the time of order to further customize your veteran's tribute.
