Just before Thanksgiving, we take some time to express our gratitude for a particularly special group of people, those who have served in our U.S. military. Veterans Day has been around in some form or another since 1919, originally conceived as “Armistice Day” and intended to remember the end of WWI, which occurred on the same date a year before. Over the years, the national holiday solidified into what it is now, a time reserved for honoring the men and women who devoted themselves to protecting and defending our country.
At Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we maintain a collection of arrangements for just this occasion. While we collectively honor our vets here in Tucson through parades and other events, we believe that sending floral gifts for Veterans Day is a meaningful way to show appreciation for your favorite patriots.
Fortunately, there are blue flowers out there, making it possible to fully represent the colors of the flag in a Veterans Day bouquet, as we’ve done here, with our American Glory. Blue belladonna, red carnations, and white lilies that look like stars are topped off with American flags and bundled into a white basket. A design like this lets the recipient know that their long-standing efforts have not gone unnoticed.
Veterans Day isn’t a somber time, so it’s possible to send something with a festive mood while still keeping the poignant occasion in mind. Our Let Freedom Ring Bouquet is celebratory, with some added patriotic decor and showy white mums exploding like fireworks toward the bottom of the arrangement.
Casas Adobes Flower Shop joins you in honoring our esteemed veterans on November 11 and has a range of floral gifts for Veterans Day to choose from.
