Flowers are sent for virtually every occasion in life, from birth announcements to birthdays and weddings. But perhaps the most poignant floral gifts are those sent to remember the life of a loved one; whether traditional funeral, memorial service or celebration of life. At this sad time, it is sometimes difficult to know exactly what is appropriate to send. At Al’s Florist, our design team has created many lovely arrangements for all types of services.
There are three types of funeral s – those for the casket or urn; those to send to the service; and those sent to the family as an expression of love and support. The funeral s are provided by the immediate family of the deceased, but all other s are appropriate for any friend, extended family member or colleague to send. At the memorial service, this may include an easel spray or wreath, or a bouquet. Although white s are traditionally symbolic of sympathy, many people choose to personalize their arrangement to include bright colors; or perhaps an arrangement that includes a keepsake item that is personal and unique.
When sending a sympathy bouquet or gift to the family home, there are many appropriate options. Of course, beautiful fresh s are a meaningful tribute. However, you may wish instead to send a green or ing plant that will be a loving reminder of your wishes in the months ahead; or perhaps you would like to send a fruit or gourmet basket for guests and family to share as they visit.
Whatever your decision, a gift from the heart is treasured during these difficult times. The experts at Al’s Florist are here to help you to select a heartfelt bouquet or arrangement that will convey your sentiments and support perfectly.
