Losing a loved one can be a very difficult and emotional time. While the responsibility for choosing the funeral flowers (such as a casket spray or urn arrangement) is left to the immediate family, those surrounding the family can send a comforting expression of love and support with beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets. The floral designers at Bice’s Florist can help you to choose the best flowers for the upcoming memorial service – whether you are choosing the flowers for the funeral, or having flowers delivered to express your condolences.
Certain flowers can evoke particular sentiments for the recipient. When grieving a loss it can truly be a comfort to receive flowers that were the loved one’s favorite variety or color, or that represent a special message. Historically, gladioli have been considered the “flower of remembrance”, making them a customary choice. They represent strength, integrity and loyalty, and their striking appearance make for a truly special tribute.
When choosing which design to send, friends and family members may wish to send a standing spray, such as Lavender Reflections, featured below. These displays, which can also come in the form of wreaths and crosses, are popular to send to the wake or memorial service and are often sent by groups, such as families, colleagues, or teams that were close with the decedent. These formal arrangements are not considered appropriate to send to the family residence.
Sending flowers to the family home is customary if your are close with them, or if you were not able to send flowers in time for the services. Bouquets in vases, floral baskets, or green plants are all beautiful options that the family is sure to appreciate.
