Happy Memorial Day from Allen’s Flowers & Plants

Memorial Day is Monday, May 25th. This is the time to recognize all of those that we have lost in wars and battles around the world in which they fought incredibly hard to keep our freedom and protect our democracy. Whether you are taking part in a graveside service this Memorial Day weekend, participating in a Memorial Day parade, or celebrating at home with a block party and barbecue, remember these heroes and reflect on the reasons we should be patriotic. At all Memorial Day celebrations and remembrances, flowers add a special and beautiful way to show your patriotism. Here are some ideas to celebrate the Red, White, and Blue: A Patriot Tribute includes hydrangea, roses, miniature carnations, snapdragons, chrysanthemums and more in a mix of red, white, and blue hues within a white urn. Go Big with 48 red roses arranged with babies’ breath. You can mix it up by also using large arrangements of white roses as well as roses that have been tinged blue. A Grace and Love is an elegant white and red themed arrangement that includes gladioli, carnations, Asiatic lilies, myrtle, sword fern, and salal all hand arranged in a Noble Heritage urn.

During this time, it’s a mad dash to find that perfect dress, great tux, and fun limo not to mention those prom flowers, including the corsage and boutonniere. There’s a lot to do to make this last dance of high school a memorable one for all involved and to create gorgeous pictures for Mom and Dad to cherish. To help you get the perfect prom flowers to match your style and budget, we have a wide array of corsages and boutonnieres to choose from at all of our San Diego flower shops.  Common Prom Flower Questions Here are some answers to some common prom flower questions: Should the corsage match the dress? It is better to select a color that serves as an accent or complimentary color to the dress color. Since more corsages are now being worn on the wrist than pinned on, a contrasting color stands out more. What are big prom flower trends this year? Prom wristlets are in demand, including those with rhinestones, pearls, and jewels.
