2018 Memorial Day Flowers Recap

 

Over the past two weeks, we’ve been receiving stories & photos from customers who participated in the Memorial Day Flowers event, passing out roses to honor our U.S. service men and women who are no longer with us. We’re honored to be a part in such an important event, and we hope you’ll be inspired to participate next year!

 


 

The Little Flower | San Diego, CA

 

We brought the donated roses to Fort Rosecrans Cemetery and asked the Boy Scouts and others to help place the roses by the head stones of the Veterans. The Little Flower, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts did exactly that until the roses were all placed.

   

 

 

 

Southern Scent Florals | Charleston, SC

 

We had the privilege on Memorial Day 2018 to be a board the USS Yorktown in Charleston, South Carolina. Honoring our fallen heroes this memorial day aboard the USS Yorktown, we gave out 750 roses compliments of Mayesh Wholesale attached with an American flag each rose had a commemorative card with the name and antidote of a South Carolina  revolutionary war service man who selflessly served our state and our country.

 

 

The Love Sparrows | Lake Arrowhead, CA

 

Our favorite moments included:
1. A veteran came and told us how he likes to hear “I’m sorry for your loss” on veterans day, because it’s a day that he’s thinking of all of his fellow friends/soldiers that didn’t make it home.
2. A Veteran came and told us when he realized we were handing out flowers for free just to remind people of the importance of veterans day, he got chills….which in turn of course gave us chills.

 

 

Wild August | Mission, TX

 

American Legion Auxiliary Unit 172 in Mission, Texas visited Laurel Hill Cemetery,  San Jose Gabriel Cemetery, Granjeno Cemetery, Rio Grande Valley Veteran’s State Cemetery and Freddy Gonzalez Veteran’s Home to give or place flags and roses on Memorial day. McAllen Unit 37 visited Roselawn Cemeteryand Texas Veteran’s Cemetery.

 

 

Naylor Creation & Design | Canby, OR

 

I started my floral celebration on Friday by distributing flowers to my coworkers who had loved ones who served.  Then on Saturday my husband and I visited some family grave-sites to pay our respects.

On Memorial Day, I set up shop at Zion Memorial Park Cemetery, while the local chapter of the American Legion had their annual service.  I passed out flowers to veterans and loved ones, but most of my time and flowers were spent placing flowers on veterans’ headstones that had no flowers.

 

 

Cactus Mart | Morongo Valley, CA

 

Since we are a popular stop for travelers heading to and from Joshua Tree National Park and the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, we handed out the complimentary roses to our visitors all weekend long. Locals commented on the sentiment and Marine families thanked us for the support.

 

 

Arlene’s Flowers | Richland, WA

 

There were Memorial services given at both funeral homes; we took 3/4 of the roses to Einan’s at Sunset in Richland, and 1/4 to Mueller’s in Kennewick.

 

 

Sterling Rose Design | Avon, OH

 

My family and I participated in the Memorial Day service at St. Joseph Cemetery in Avon, Ohio. We attended mass at the cemetery. After mass we handed roses to families to place on their loved ones graves and then we also placed roses.

It is such a simple and powerful morning. Its our privilege to participate in honoring our fallen and their families.

Memorial Day Flowers 2018

 

The Memorial Day Flowers event is upon us, and we have committed once again to supplying thirty (30) Memorial Day Flower kits! This is a wonderful program that we love to participate in with our customers to recognize the men and women who have served our country.

 

Please fill out the form if you are interested in receiving a flower kit (250 roses, handouts, and a banner). If selected, you will be charged $40 and will also need to send in pictures of your Memorial Day activities.

 

Filling out the form is NOT a guarantee to receive a Memorial Day Flowers kit. You will receive an email from Mayesh marketing confirming your participation.

 

UPDATE: Wow, you guys are amazing! We had over 40 responses yesterday, so I am closing the form down while we go through the applicants. I will send out an update if we still have room or can handle a few more. Stay tuned! 

 

There are several ways to use the roses you will receive within your communities:

  • Contact your local cemetery and set up a table to distribute roses to visitors. Each visitor will be given two stems of roses: one to place on a headstone and one to take home in remembrance of a friend or relative. Optionally, you could provide a service for families that are unable to visit by sending a digital picture of the rose lying on the headstone.
  • Distribute roses at your local Memorial Day parade or ceremony.
  • Place a sign at your shop offering a free Memorial Day Rose to anyone who comes in on the preceding Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Participating in the Memorial Day Flowers “Florists & Community” program is an excellent way to connect with your community and honor those who served. A single rose, placed on a headstone, is a floral expression of appreciation.

Here are some of our favorite images from last year’s event, and check out the full 2017 recap here!

We gave them away at a local cookie stand who was giving vets free cookies at our farmer’s market and then at the cemetery.  We marked the flags with roses (each flag has a dog tag on it.)   And some we just gave to people or placed on a grave who were there at the cemetery.
