Traditional Funeral Flowers - To Show Love and Remembrance


To show love and respect towards our loved ones who have died, funeral flowers are the right offering. When the family is feeling low, these flowers bring beauty and comfort while reassuring them that life continues even after death.

Wreaths are the best of them all. The circular design on funeral wreaths signifies life and its continuity after death. The wreath, being a continuous circle that does not break, signifies that life in itself is a cyclical process and goes on for those who have been left behind. In times of grief, one may not wish to dwell on what the flowers mean but flowers do have a way of reaching out to the bereaved family. Wreaths are generally made of laurel or rosemary branches. Both the flowers signify remembrance and honour.

The casket arrangement is basically a large bunch that is especially created to be kept on top of the funeral casket. Since space on the casket will be limited, if you truly wish to honour the life of the departed by presenting flowers you may want to check with the bereaved if they have already arranged for casket flowers. You can then choose flowers that can be used along pews, on entryway tables, or any other flat surface of the funeral home.

Funeral sprays are elegant beautiful displays that are placed on a tripod at the funeral home or grave site. Like any traditional arrangement of funeral flowers, sprays can be used in the church or funeral home as a way of conveying solace and comfort to the family of the deceased. Funeral sprays are generally designed with traditional flowers and can be customised to go with the preferences of the family or the person offering them.

Funeral baskets are more or less a gift sent to the family of the deceased, rather than as an offering of respect at the funeral. While they are beautifully arranged, they contain things like chocolates, fruit, coffee or teas.

Their main purpose is to cheer up people and make the atmosphere less mournful by symbolising the nice and fine things in life. They could also contain things that the deceased may have liked in their lifetime as a way of cherishing those memories that the departed may have shared with friends and family.

Funeral baskets can easily be bought from an online retailer and can even be customised or personalised as per the preferences of the family. Some also choose to order funeral gift baskets filled with personal health items such as teas, warm shawls and bath lotions to show that they wish comfort and good health.

These baskets signify that the family is not alone in their loss and other people also think of and share their thoughts of the deceased as much as the family. Funeral baskets can also be delivered directly to the house of the deceased during the mourning period before the funeral service.

When tragedy strikes, close family members and friends collect to console, share and comfort. Gift and flower baskets are a way of showing your love, support and concern to the family members and honouring the life of the person who is no more.
