Memorial Day unofficially marks the start of summer and while most will be celebrating the onset of the season with cookouts and pool parties, some families honor the holiday by placing flowers at the gravesites of family members who have passed or by paying respect to our nation’s fallen war heroes with a patriotic floral arrangement.

What is Memorial Day?

The “Memorial Day” holiday was originally intended to honor the war dead, but today has been adapted to include remembrance of any and all deceased, not just those who have died while service their country.

Memorial Day Flowers

Decorating gravesites and gravestones with flowering plants, wreaths, and floral arrangements on Memorial Day is a tradition of the holiday.

Carithers Flowers of Atlanta offers many floral arrangements, sprays, and wreaths to adorn your loved one’s eternal resting place. The award-winning staff at Carithers Flowers can also customize a special arrangement in remembrance of your lost loved ones.

This Memorial Day, in addition to honoring family members and friends, take the time to pay your respects to our nation’s fallen heroes by placing a special floral arrangement or wreath on the gravesites of these brave men and women.
