Each year on November 11, Veterans Day is held to honor our loved ones who have served in the Armed Forces. Along with other world holidays like Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, this holiday marks the end the first World War. If you know someone who has lost a loved one in service to their country, sending flowers can be a thoughtful and heartfelt way to show you care. Here are some key sympathy flower ideas for Veterans Day:
Lilies. Both calla and stargazer lilies can help you to express your sympathy and care in a profound way. Lilies bring grace and style to any flower arrangement and can symbolize the integrity of a soldier’s commitment to protect. White lilies in particular evoke the bright white of the stars and stripes. Consider sending a Memories or Blessings bouquet.
Carnations. Carnations have a patriotic feel and are available in red, white and blue as well as just about any other color you can imagine. A Rose Angel bouquet elegantly combines carnations with roses and mums for a serene and beautiful effect.
Orchids. Orchids bring a serenity and elegance all their own. Make an impact by giving an orchid as a Veterans Day sympathy gift. A Radiant Orchids gift mixes bright maroon orchids with subtle greenery, and a Blooming Orchids Basket combines orchids with other beautiful blooms for a gift that keeps on giving.
Hydrangea and Blue Delphinium. Hydrangea can bloom in a rich, patriotic blue hue as well as a number of other colors. While delphiniums can be pink, purple and white, they also come in bright blue. A Moonlight bouquet offers a classy combination of green hydrangea, blue delphinium, calla lilies, ivory roses and purple stock.
Patriotic Sympathy Arrangements
Bouquets that combine the American flag colors of red, white and blue can make a big patriotic statement and perfectly convey your sympathy for a fallen veteran. Consult with your florist about creating a patriotic sympathy arrangement in honor of your loved ones. Any of the flowers discussed about can be artfully combined to create this impactful red, white and blue effect.
Veterans Day is for honoring the brave soldiers who serve our country with such courage and pride. Consider these flower gift ideas this Veterans Day to help you convey sympathy to anyone who has lost a veteran loved one. Sending flowers to the veterans in your life as well as those who have lost someone is the perfect way to show your respect and appreciation this Veterans Day.
