Paying respects to a loved one with flowers has long been a fitting way to celebrate their life, but it can be a real source of confusion deciding what to choose for your burial or cremation floral arrangement. We can help you make an informed choice on your floral tribute arrangements, and decide whether a flower display is appropriate for the funeral plans you’re overseeing.
Read on to learn more about floral tributes and what they can entail.
What A Floral Tribute Involves
Seen at most funerals, flower displays and floral arrangements can help you express your love for the deceased with a personal and appropriate tribute. Choosing a fitting floral tribute can aid the grieving process and show that you care at such an upsetting time. Flowers should be sent to the funeral home if you would like them to be included in the service, and the funeral director will take care of them, ensuring they are displayed appropriately alongside tributes to complete a personalised service.
Floral tributes can be made suitable for any funeral plans, with different flowers representative of various emotions, memories and occasions. Depending on the memories associated with your dearly departed, there are a range of appropriate floral options to consider.
Suited To The Occasion
Many floral tribute options can be appropriate for burial services and cremations, while just some of the available arrangements include:
- Wreaths – Circular arrangements representing eternal life.
- Basket And Container Arrangements – Organised floral patterns within a basket.
- Inside pieces – Items placed inside the casket, such as small floral displays.
- Sprays – Arrangements that can be viewed from one side.
Organising A Floral Tribute
Flowers can be a very important aspect of a funeral service, particularly if the deceased enjoyed flowers or loved their garden. Stockman & Loram can provide you with expert assistance and knowledgeable advice when deciding on a fitting floral tribute. Coffin sprays or wreaths are the traditional floral tributes for funerals.
You can also choose to have circular floral arrangements such as posies, or more informal arrangements such as tied bouquets which can be taken to the reception or family home or nursing home after the funeral. The service can also feature floral baskets, cushions, crosses, hearts, names or nicknames or floral representations of things that were important to your loved one.
