Choosing Funeral Flowers
Choosing funeral flowers can be a difficult task, especially at such an emotional time when there's so much else to be organised. Below are some tips on help you choose the perfect tribute.
If your loved one had a favourite bloom its natural to want it included in the tribute. Or perhaps you'd like to reflect some of the varieties they had growing in their garden. The season may guide you in the flower choices and we'd be happy to design your tribute with the best of what's in season.
Lots of people have a favourite colour and reflecting that in their funeral flowers can be a lovely gesture. Brighter colours are becoming much more popular for tributes, although some do still opt for the traditional white flowers, which I think can still be just as beautiful. Football teams colours are often chosen for dedicated supporters.
Sprays & Wreaths
Casket sprays are a popular choice and are usually chosen by the immediate family often as the main tribute. These can be designed with their favourite flowers and colours to create a fitting tribute. Wreaths have been a traditional sympathy gesture for centuries and are still a common choice for many. Their circular shape is symbolic of eternal life.
Family name tributes are a lovely sentiment for any funeral and can be customized with different colours and varieties. We can even do personalised names for that extra special floral tribute.
Shapes – hearts, crosses, pillows and cushions
Hearts are a symbol of love and a great way to express your love through flowers. Crosses are a very fitting tribute for a religious service. Pillow and cushion tributes are a symbol of a comfortable resting place for lost loved ones. All of these tributes can be designed with different colour options.
Peoples hobbies and interests are a great idea for funeral flowers as a celebration of their personality. From bingo boards to horses and handbags to fish! We've created lots of different tributes to represent favourite drinks, favourite birds, horseshoes, teddy bears, butterflies and Irish shamrocks!
