Memorial Day Floral Tribute
Winfield, IL, May 14, 2013:
Every Memorial Day, many in our community
visit local cemeteries to pay respects to those who served in the United States
Day, weekend, the Winfield Flower Shoppe in Winfield, Il. will participate in
the nationwide Memorial Day Flowers program and will distribute free roses to visitors. Each
visitor will receive two roses, one to place on a headstone to honor someone
who served and one to take for themselves as a remembrance.
Flower Shoppe supports worth causes. This one is special and the flower shop is
privileged to participate in honoring the people and families that have given
the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Flowers are a form of emotional
expressions and a single stem placed on a headstone is an appropriate show of
respect. The roses will be distributed – free-of-charge – while supplies last.
For all the work Mom does throughout the year, she deserves to be pampered on Mother's Day. Make your Mother’s Day extra special with these gift ideas from Winfield Flower Shoppe
Invite Mom to brunch or dinner at her favorite restaurant and have a flower arrangement delivered right to your table for all to see.
If your Mom is planning on attending worship on Mother's Day, send her a beautiful floral corsage to wear.
Give Mom something to relax with by wrapping a new book and asking your florist to place it into a fragrant flower bouquet with a note that reads, "Today is your day to relax!"
Incorporate flowers into a theme gift. If Mom is an avid gardener, send a floral design that includes gardening goodies such as a trowel, garden gloves, seed packets and tools. If Mom is a bird watcher, how about a floral design in a bird feeder? An athletic would certainly appreciate a pair of workout shoes - with flowers arranged inside. Tennis balls, golf balls or sport headbands can be a unique addition to any floral arrangement. If Mom loves clothes or jewelry, tie a scarf or drape a necklace around a vase of flowers to make the gift extra special.
Even kids can make their gift of the Mother’s Day extra special. Here are a few ideas:
Breakfast in bed is a treat that every Mom loves. Dads and kids can prepare a special morning for Mom by greeting her with a homemade breakfast in bed, on a tray adorned with fresh flowers.
For a very personal tribute, write Mom a note telling her why you're glad she's your mom and attach it to a flower.
Present Mom with a vase of her favorite flowers. On each stem tie a "coupon" for a chore that you promise to do.
