Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 28th. For some, it means a three or even four-day holiday while others see the end of school in their sights and the unofficial start to summer.

Others think about those that gave their lives in service to our country and to us as citizens. They fought in battles and on the front lines to ensure our freedom and keep us safe from external threats. Still today, many have spent their entire careers in the armed forces. We thank those men and women, alive and dead. During Memorial Day, we focus on those that have past either in conflict or from old age.

This year, we hope to see a return to some more in-person Memorial Day events like parades, graveside services, and other events here in the Finger Lakes. It’s even an opportunity to host barbecues and block parties or gift those in our lives who have lost loved ones who once served in the military.

Our Memorial Day collection offers patriotic flowers in bouquets, arrangements, and other unique floral displays. Mixing red, white, and blue flowers, these patriotic flower arrangements.  They come in all sizes and shapes as well as feature many favorite flowers like roses, carnations, lilies, hydrangea and more along with greenery and patriotic accents like ribbons and miniature American flags.

Other options include scheduling an appointment to work with our floral designers on custom Memorial Day flowers for gifts, decor, flair for parade floats, and centerpieces for events. This includes wreaths and standing sprays. Call us today to get your custom patriotic flowers!

For Memorial Day, we also offer green and blooming plants that also have similar patriotic options. Even patriotic balloon arrangements are available along with edible treats, which are perfect for a Memorial Day picnic or barbecue.

Call us or stop by our Rochester flower shops and other Finger Lakes florist locations. You can also use our website to order your Memorial Day flowers, plants, and gifts. We offer pickup at our flower shops or contactless delivery for the Finger Lakes area.

From all of us at Rockcastle, we want to thank all those in the military and pay our respects to those who have lost loved ones in wars and conflicts. We appreciate their service to our country.
