One of the more meaningful and poignant occasions to send flowers is upon the death of a loved one or close friend. While these times are difficult and emotional, the professionals at Julia’s Florist are here to help you to choose the funeral flowers that will best express your condolences and sympathy.
While gladioli are considered the traditional flowers for memorial services, utilizing many other flowers which reflect the life of the decedent is more popular in recent times. If they had a favorite flower, arrangements which showcase that bloom are the perfect choice. If they had a bold, vibrant personality, you may wish to choose bold, vibrant flowers. Or if they had a passion for a specific hobby, sports team, or charity, you may wish to have a custom arrangement designed to reflect their dedication.
In choosing which types of flowers to send, there are some protocols. For instance, it is considered appropriate that the casket sprays and arrangements, funeral flowers for the service, or urn designs should be chosen by those closest to the decedent. If you wish to send flowers to the funeral or memorial service, standing sprays, crosses and wreaths are all appropriate. You may also wish to send a funeral basket which can be easily transported to the family home.
If you are sending flowers directly to a residence, the formal standing arrangements are not appropriate. Choose instead a lovely bouquet, basket of flowers, or green plant. Condolence gifts such as memorial stones, wind chimes, or even gourmet food baskets would also be appreciated by the family.
You may also want to schedule a delivery of flowers to the family in a few months. After the visitors have gone and the house is empty, they will appreciate knowing that you are still thinking of them. If you found out about their loved ones passing after the services have ended, send a card and flowers anyway. Expressions of care and condolence are always welcome.
