DETROIT, May 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --, a leading online flower delivery company, has floral arrangements to honor those who have died in our nation's service.  Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.  For their sacrifice we are truly grateful.

The tradition of decorating the graves of fallen soldiers has been in existence since the time of the Civil War.  Historical evidence shows that women living in the South honored soldiers by placing some sort of decorative items on their graves.  Though it's not clear what the decorations were, we can reasonably assume they placed flowers on the grave as we do today.  Such honoring of the dead inspired a day of remembrance that we call Memorial Day, which extends our appreciation and admiration to all soldiers who died in the service of their country since the time of the Civil War.

When ordering flowers for Memorial Day be sure to indicate that the flowers are for placement in a cemetery.  Memorial Day arrangements often use flowers that are red, white, and blue.  Carnations are a popular choice because they are long lasting and available in the proper colors.  However, your flowers don't have to be limited to red, white, and blue or to the common graveside wreath.  You can order the fallen soldier's favorite flower and simply tuck in a small flag to signify the arrangement is for Memorial Day.  Or, you can order a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers and ask that they be bound with ribbons in our country's colors.
