Although displaying flags or photographs of a loved one in their uniform may be nice and respectable gestures, there are other ways to represent his or her involvement as well. Funeral flower arrangements with a patriotic color scheme are a perfect way to honor the passing of your relative. From lovely red, white and blue vases to gorgeous funeral wreaths and funeral easel standing sprays. Arrangements of patriotic hues can also be crafted to fit around a framed photograph floral tribute, which could add a personal touch to the memorial service.
Serving in the United States Armed Forces, whether in the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marine Corps, tends to be an important part of a person's life. This honor and dedication should also be a prominent feature in a loved one's funeral service. Not only will the flowers help to show your lost relative's pride for his or her country, but it will also ensure people in attendance know your loved one served. The pops of red, white and blue at the funeral or memorial service may also help guests talk about their own memories of serving or discuss their relatives who are in the Armed Forces, helping to make the event more of a celebration of life, rather than a day of sadness.
