The Best Ways to Celebrate Anzac Day from Home

Warrandyte Florist Delivery

Every year, on the 25th of April, the nation comes together to celebrate Anzac day. The event commemorates the soldiers and veterans that have protected generations of the past. This is a time for us Australians to recognise and thank all the men and women that have served our country. 

Unfortunately, due to the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re being asked to remain indoors and avoid external celebrations. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t pay homage to the day from the comfort of your own home. While staying home on this day might feel unfair to many, you can still show how much you care while social distancing. 

Hang a Laurel Wreath

You might not be able to go and pick flowers for yourself, but with a Warrandyte florist delivery, you can still commemorate Anzac day in style. A laurel wreath is a beautiful and easy way to celebrate special days, demonstrating both love and devotion. 

Like most plants, laurel leaves have special meaning to them. These leaves are often used as a commemorative symbol, crowning brave and victorious individuals who have overcome huge challenges. Traditionally, your laurel wreath would be in the shape of a teardrop. However, you can also celebrate with round wreaths and native Australian flora too. 

Bake Traditional Biscuits

Using traditional foliage to commemorate this important day isn’t the only way that you can respect your heritage. If you’re confined to your home and wondering what you do with your spare time, you could always consider baking Australia’s favourite crunchy and buttery Anzac biscuits. This will help to keep the memory of generations past alive, while giving you a delicious treat. 

You could even consider sending some biscuits in the post to your friends and family if they’re properly packaged, along with your Warrandyte florist delivery, for a meaningful gift at this important time. 

Donate to Charity

There are a lot of ways that you can show your respect to Anzac day, from bringing your family together in front of the television to watch the Dawn Service from home, to lighting a candle for the people lost. You can even show your solidarity and observe the minute of silent that happens every dawn on this day by sitting in your living rooms, or on your balconies, and listening to the world around you. 

However, if you want to know that you’re really making an impact on the world around you, then you could also think about opening your hearts and wallets to a non-profit organization. The Anzac appeal is a popular charity that helps to change the lives of former service people around the country. With this appeal, you can help the RSL to deliver important services like employment support and financial assistance to those that need it most. 

You Can Still Take Part from Home

Commemoration can still take place, wherever you are. Senator Molan has even launched a social media campaign called #AnzacAtHome, encouraging people to share their stories and highlight their commemorative experiences from a distance. 

By practicing a few traditions in a new way, and showing you care wherever you can with flower deliveries and donations, you can really keep the spirit of this crucial celebration alive. Reach out to In Full Bloom today to learn more our wreaths and deliveries.
