Selecting the Right Funeral Flowers

funeral flowersWhen a friend or loved one passes away, you want to send a heartfelt expression of sympathy. However, you may not know exactly what to select  – what are the right funeral flowers or celebration of life florals? The experts at Gordon Boswell have designed a beautiful selection that will allow you to send the appropriate floral design for this time.

The casket flowers and sprays are generally purchased by the immediate family of the deceased. This includes the casket pillow or garland to adorn an urn. If you wish to purchase one of these items on behalf of the family, it is best to inquire with them as to what they wish to select.

When sending flowers to the funeral home or celebration of life, friends can choose from a variety of beautiful tributes. Although white flowers are symbolic of sympathy, these displays can be designed in many different colors and styles, to  best reflect the life and personality of your loved one.  Easels can display a traditional spray, a meaningful cross or heart tribute, or a floral wreath. You may also wish to send a bouquet to honor the deceased, especially poignant because they can decorate the service but then be brought to the family’s home after the service. You may not have the opportunity to send flowers to the service or funeral home, but in these instances it is entirely appropriate to send a bouquet to the home of the grieving family. You may wish instead to choose a green or flowering plant, which will remind them of your love and support for months and years to come.
The designers at Gordon Boswell are happy to create a custom design to celebrate your loved one’s life in a unique way. Whether we utilize their favorite flower or create a design that reflects their life, like a sports emblem – these custom floral tributes will be a special and personalized way to remember the deceased.
