Celebrate Memorial Day and July 4th with 1-800-Flowers.com {Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, A .price!}

With two patriotic holidays right around the corner, it's time to start planning for Memorial Day and the 4th of July. Whether you and your family focus on the true symbolism of the days and spend them appreciating our country and the service men and women throughout the world or you just spend them enjoying a barbecue while catching some fireworks, it doesn't hurt to plan ahead.

And, when it comes to celebrating, the experts at 1-800-Flowers.com know what to do. Their selection of patriotic flowers and gifts spans everything from classic and elegant to delicious and modern and each one is sure to be appreciated and enjoyed by everyone who gets to see their beauty or taste their flavor.

Flowers just have a way of conveying messages that other backyard party décor can't match and what better way to include beauty while showing how much we care for those who have served or are currently serving our country than with an eye-catching arrangement?

Wouldn't this look lovely positioned right in the middle of your table?

Perfect for any upcoming festivities that you may have planned, The American Dream Bouquet includes fresh red roses, blue delphinium and white daisy poms in a ruby red ribbed glass vase that is finished off with a royal blue and white polka-dotted ribbon.

I love the simplicity of this bouquet and how the red, white and blue are simple and so pretty. Available in three different sizes, you're able to not only stick with your budget, but customize this arrangement to fit the location and extent of your celebration.

Or, for something that really symbolizes summer, maybe this might be your choice...

The Red, White & Blooms bouquet is a unique basket arrangement of red carnations, white daisy poms, purple statice and white monte casino, accented with a mini American flag.

I love the way that this arrangement would match with an outdoor picnic or summer event and that even after the flowers are gone you could reuse the basket to store napkins or utensils for your next get-together. How cute!

So, what are your plans for Memorial Day and the 4th of July? Do they include needing just the right décor? Visit 1-800-Flowers.com for all of your decorating and gift needs and to add some patriotism to your family's celebrations. Thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to do that this summer as well, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of The American Dream Bouquet or the Red, White and Blooms bouquet!

My favorite way is to watch all the fireworks from our backyard with friends and family. We happen to live where you can see four fireworks shows at one time and not have to get out in traffic...Boy, I love NM.

We celebrate both at the campground where we stay. There's always a live band, activities for the kids, golf cart games, and carry-in dinners. Thanks.
