Choosing the right flower arrangement to honor a loved one on Memorial Day doesn't need to be a daunting task. The fist step should always be to check the rules and regulations for the cemetery. Not all cemeteries have the same rules regarding the decorating of graves, and some, such as National Cemeteries, can have very stringent rules. You definitely don't want to spend time and money only to find that your flowers were removed from the grave and thrown away because they violated cemetery policy.
The second thing to consider is your budget. How many graves do you want to decorate, and how much money do you want to spend? It's very easy to leave flowers at a grave for less than $10, and it's also very easy to spend several hundred dollars per grave. There is no right or wrong on how much to spend. That's purely a personal decision you should base on your own opinion and financial situation.
The final consideration is selecting the arrangement, itself. We've highlighted a few ideas below that are our most popular items during the Memorial Day season. Keep in mind that red, white , and blue patriotic colors aren't the only choice for this time of year.As a matter of fact, the vast majority of the arrangements we sell this time of year aren't patriotic in nature.
