Colorful Gifts for Veterans Day

Veterans Day is just around the corner, a time when we honor our military veterans. Since 1919, in some form or another, we’ve reserved this occasion to reflect on our veterans’ service and celebrated their commitment to the country with parades and festivals. It is likely you’ll catch one of these events around San Mateo this November 11, paying your respects to the vets who participate and enjoying the patriotism and pride that accompanies occasions like these (as well as the fresh air!). But a personal gesture honoring a family member or friend who served is always appropriate too, and we at Ah Sam Florist have just the thing for that.

An arrangement that brings in the colors of our flag like our Afternoon Delight piece strikes just the right note. The blue blooms here are balanced by bright, happy sunflowers and snapdragons. The pop of blue reminds us of the occasion at hand while the bold faces of the sunflowers keep the feeling upbeat.


Since there’s no official flower for Veterans Day, there’s no limit to what kind of floral gift you can offer your favorite vet. Look for designs that utilize the flag colors, but also take a minute to tailor the gift to the recipient’s tastes.


Let us at Ah Sam Florist customize a tropical arrangement for you, selecting from a variety of blooms and greens. It’s a way of really making your gift speak to the veteran you’re honoring and makes the day even more poignant (and pretty!).
