Sooner or later we will all experience the loss of a loved one. If the deceased is a member of your family the decisions can be overwhelming. We are here to make the flower choices for a funeral service as easy & problem free as possible.
These are some of the questions we like to asK:
~ Did the deceased have a favorite color or flower?
~ If your loved one is a female, what color is the outfit she will be wearing and what color is the interior of the casket?
~ What color combination would you like the flowers to be?
~ Did your loved one like vibrant & uplifting colors or soft pastelS?
All white is lovely & elegant. Red & white is a popular choice as well as blues, yellows & purples. Warm tones such as oranges, yellows, reds & bronze are a good chioce any time of the year, not just in the autumn. When you meet with us, we will show you flowers in various color combinations to help you choose.
Traditionally there are 3 important pieces that come from the immediate family. They surround your loved one with beautiful flowers and colors. The main piece is the casket spray that hovers over the lid of an open casket or on the top of a closed casket. A banner can be added that says "Beloved Husband" , "Wife" , "Loving Mom" or "Dad". Other banners stating your relationship to the deceased are available as well.
There are two matching pieces that sit at the pillow & at the foot of the casket. Traditionally they are sent by the children or siblings of the deceased. Again, the appropriate banners can be added. There are several choices for the style of these pieces. The most popular are large upright arrangements in biodegradable mache containers that can be taken to the cemetary. Another option is arrangements designed in wicker baskets that can be taken home or sent to a nursing home after the ceremony.
Standing sprays on easles are stately & impressive looking. These pieces are taken to the cemetary as well.
A very popular piece coming from grandchildren is a hinge spray. It sits inside the casket on the hinge of the lid. An open heart- shaped wreath is another good choice from the grandchildren, children or a special friend.
A solid heart displayed on an easle created with red caranations & roses signifies "my heart is breaking" & is often referred to as a "Bleeding Heart"
Rosaries & standing crosses are also available.
