Learning of the death of a loved one can be a difficult time. Whether you are an immediate family member or a close friend, thoughts turn quickly to expressing your sadness, as well as to showing comfort and support for other’s grieving. The decisions which need to be made by close family can seem a bit overwhelming, which is why the professionals at Norfolk Florist stand ready to help in any way we can. Once the memorial service or funeral arrangements have been set, call us to arrange for the perfect funeral flowers. We will take it from there, to ensure that the freshest and most beautiful memorial flowers arrive on time.
The family of the deceased is responsible for the personal funeral flowers. These arrangements generally consist of either casket sprays and pillows, floral decorations for an urn, or some other form of tribute that may include a keepsake or photo. Although many believe only white flowers appropriate for these occasions, in truth every flower expresses sympathy when designed tastefully. For memorial or funeral services, larger flowers such as gladioli, lilies, roses and snapdragons are traditionally used to create dramatic tributes, and are best for memorial or funeral services. If a friend or colleague wishes to send an easel spray or decorative cross, they can ask the designer to create a custom arrangement that will be complementary to the family’s choice of flowers, if ordered from the same florist.
Smaller to mid-sized bouquets and funeral baskets are also appropriate to send to the service, or directly to the home of the family. These designs will likely be displayed on tables or counter tops, and will convey love and support wherever they are located. If you are sending a floral gift to the family’s residence, you may also wish to consider a green or flowering plant which will last long beyond the funeral and bring lasting peace and comfort in the months to come.
