Wreaths Across America is a national initiative held this year on December 15. During the ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, wreaths are placed on veterans’ headstones. Many locations across the U.S. participate, simultaneously holding their own events to commemorate local veterans. Beneva & Plantscapes encourages our customers to consider making a similar tribute, whether it’s in line with what Wreaths Across America does or is something personally crafted and meaningful to you. Wreaths are a wonderful symbol of interconnectedness and a great way to express your respect and love toward someone you’ve lost during the holiday season.
We will be putting up wreaths both outside and inside our store, and will have many in stock for those looking to decorate their homes with this special item. We have a few different styles of evergreen wreaths, but for a memorial, a simple piece with a bright red bow is a powerful gesture. Whether you place it at a final resting spot or just hang it in memory somewhere in your home, it’s a great way to remember a family member or friend, especially at a time when we’re inspired to honor both.
Enjoy the season with all of the people you love, and take a moment to remember the ones who may have passed but are still with you in spirit.
