A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. – Joseph Campbell
Memorial Day gives us the chance to slow down and reflect on the many brave and heroic men and women throughout American history who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. It is a day filled with patriotism and gratitude, and at Tobler’s Flowers, we have the Memorial Day arrangements which will convey your sentiments and honor the fallen beautifully. Although many simply see Memorial Day as the unofficial start to summer, or a free day off – Kansas City gives us the opportunity to celebrate these things while also remembering the true meaning of the day. For instance, you can join people from across the area at Union Station, where you will be treated with a free outdoor Kansas City Orchestra show. Enjoy special guests, additional musical performances and a patriotic fireworks show that’s sure to impress. The site opens at 3 p.m. while the concert begins at 8 p.m.
Or perhaps you would prefer to visit the National World War I Museum and Memorial. Admission is only half-price over the holiday weekend, and veterans and active-duty members of the military receive free admission. The museum spans the entirety of the war in a state-of-the-art, multi-sensory experience. There will also be many activities for all ages, including a performance by the 35th Infantry Division Band and a display of vintage military vehicles.
Sending s on Memorial Day is a time-honored tradition. If you are sending a bouquet or floral design to someone’s home, choose a more classic display, such as The Patriot, shown above, showcasing our colors with blue hydrangea, white stock and snaps, and red roses and tulips. Urns, wreaths. crosses and grave blankets are more appropriate for the cemetery. We are happy to help you to decide on the best s for any location.
At Tobler’s Flowers, it is our privilege to assist you in sending the most beautiful Memorial Day arrangements to honor those who most deserve it. Call us today.
