Happy Memorial Day from Flowerama Columbus

F5 Memorial Day is Monday, May 25th. Throughout Columbus, there will be many ways to reflect on our fallen heroes, including ceremonies, celebrations, and festive occasions that focus on patriotism and how much we value the freedom that we hold dear. They fought for us and now we must remember and honor them.F1

At all Memorial Day celebrations and remembrances, flowers are a way to reflect the beauty and love represented in remembering these heroes, many of which were our loved ones. To help you get ready for this weekend’s events, here are some ideas to celebrate the Red, White, and Blue whether you are at a gravesite service, barbecue, parade, or block party:

  • The 36-carnation and 24-carnation wreath offers a patriotic display of red, white, and blue carnations along with baby’s breath, fresh greenery, and ribbons attached to an easel.F2
  • The Patriotic Spirit Spray is a stunning standing spray of red carnations, white gladiola, and blue delphinium along with greenery and patriotic ribbons also attached to an easel.
  • The 36-carnation and 24-carnation option of patriotic flowers is also available as a hand-arrangement within a garden vase.
  • The American Patriot Sympathy Wreath has red roses, white mums and blue delphinium along with greenery and ribbons.F3

Along with these stunning flower arrangement, bouquet, and centerpiece ideas for Memorial Day celebrations and remembrances, you can also opt to create your own special floral arrangement by visiting our Columbus, OH flower shop now and working with our floral design team to create custom Memorial Day flower arrangements, Memorial Day centerpieces, or Memorial Day wreaths and standing wreaths.   F6

Another nice gift item for a special loved one is “A Soldier’s Prayer Throw and Easel,” which offers an inspirational prayer that has been embroidered into the throw. The prayer says, “Guide and protect this Soldier, oh Lord as through hard times of war we travel. Give us strength for the battle, hope for the future and courage to face the unknown. Keep this Soldier safe from harm as we pray for Peace.” It offers a nice sentiment and reminds us all of the incredible fight they willingly take on.

Throughout this weekend and on Memorial Day, we can deliver throughout the Columbus, Ohio area to your home or Memorial Day ceremony site. Call, order online, or visit our Columbus flower shop today! On behalf of our entire staff, we want to extend our best wishes to all the families that can proudly say they had a loved one fight the good fight for our country!

Prom Flowers for Columbus High School Dances

f1The junior and senior high school prom is one of those magical moments that you will remember the rest of your life, so it’s important that every detail be planned out so it can be as perfect as you imagine it will be! That includes everything from the dress and tuxedo to hair, makeup, and jewelry (and shoes!) to the limo to, of course, the prom flowers, including the corsage and boutonniere.f4

Since you may never have picked out prom flowers before, we are here to help with some advice and answers to commonly asked prom flower questions.

Answering Your Prom Flower Questions

  • Should the corsage match my dress? It’s up to you but let us suggest that you either create or select a prom corsage that features your dress color as part of the color combination or you select a completely different color that complements the dress style and color.
  • What are big prom flower trends this year? Not many pinned on prom corsages are requested as most dresses tend to be strapless. Instead, the hot trend are prom corsage wristlets that feature a bracelet with rhinestones or other embellishments. We also get requests for arm band corsages as well as flowers for the hair, especially if you plan on putting your hair in an up-do.f2
  • Who orders and pays for the corsage? Traditionally, your date has always picked out and purchased your corsage. Then, you return the favor by getting his boutonniere and exchange these on the night of the dance. However, today, it is typically purchased by Mom while you and your date come along to pick it out or your date just entrusts you with both.
  • What should I order prom flowers? You should place your order soon after you know you have a date so it’s taken care of and ready for pick-up on the day of the dance. We typically get a high volume of orders and you want to make sure that you can get the flower variety and color you want as well as ensure it’s ready when you are!f3

Custom Prom Corsages and Boutonnieres

Bring us your dress and sit down with our incredible floral design team here in our Columbus flower shop in order to custom create your prom flowers for the big dance!

Columbus Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Delivery

Our prom corsages and prom boutonnieres are typically available for in-store pickup only. Place your order today by phone, website, or in-store.
