Sending flower arrangements to funeral services is something we do to show our love and respect to those who have passed on, and to those left behind as well. Ordering a fitting tribute for the deceased can be done easily with the help of a good florist.
There are many different styles of arrangements that can be sent as sympathy tributes, depending upon your budget. When ordering, it is best to tell the florist your budget first, and then they can better make suggestions accordingly.
The casket spray is the large design that either lies on the half open or fully closed lid, or can be hung on top of the fully open lid. These arrangements are ordered by those closest to the one who has passed away, usually immediate family. Script such as husband and father are often included in these designs, expressing the deceased’s relation to the immediate family.
Easel arrangements are beautiful pieces that are attached to standing easels, and can be made in different shapes such as fans, diamonds, hearts, and wreathes. A ribbon is often attached with script saying the relationship the deceased was to the sender, such as sister, aunt, or even beloved friend.
A sympathy pillow can be ordered to be placed inside the casket, and usually has a small floral arrangement pinned to it. Often it is from someone special to the deceased, such as grandchildren. An example would be to have the number of grandchildren matched by the number of flowers, like roses, arranged across the pillow. This can also be done with garlands and rosaries.
If you have a smaller budget and you are not immediate family, a take home arrangement is
a lovely sentiment. It can be arranged in a vase or basket, designed to go home with someone after the service. These are different than the traditional triangular funeral arrangements that often go to the cemetery after the service.
No matter what your budget, a beautiful and tasteful arrangement can be designed to express your sympathy, love, and respect. Flowers mean so much at a funeral, giving those hurting a chance to look at something beautiful for a moment, and possibly take their mind off of their grief briefly. Your local florist makes ordering easy, and delivers your tribute, no matter how great or small, to the funeral home or chapel prior to the calling hours.
