Some days carry more significance than others. Memorial Day is Monday, May 29, and is an opportunity to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as to send an acknowledgment to their loved ones who remain. If you are looking for patriotic flowers, memorial day arrangements, or thoughtful bouquets to observe this special day, Billy Heroman’s Flowers would be honored to help.

If you know someone who has lost a son, daughter, brother, sister or spouse – let them know that your heart is with them, with florals that creatively present the red, white, and blue in a modern design. Carnations, lilies, hydrangea and blue delphinium arranged in a low geometric vase are a lovely addition to any home. Send one of our Memorial Day designs to the home of anyone who is missing someone today, and convey your respect and gratitude.
Did You Know? Originally known Decoration Day, Memorial Day was instituted after the Civil War to honor the fallen. The wearing of a red poppy is a tradition that began after World War I, when Lt. John McCrae wrote a poem “In Flanders’ Fields”, which told of red poppies growing among the graves of soldiers.
If you wish to send flowers to a service or grave site, there are many options – from crosses and wreaths to baskets, urns, and easel sprays. Flowers often used for such displays include red roses and carnations, but for additional meaning, you may wish to consider gladioli. The gladiolus flower is shaped like a sword and named after Roman soldiers; it represents a strength of character, courage, and integrity – perfect for our American heroes.
To decorate a memorial or to give comfort to loved ones, you can trust the floral designers at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts for beautiful red, white, and blue tributes and Memorial Day flowers.
