Funeral and Sympathy Flowers

Life brings on many ups and downs, with one of the most solemn times being when a loved one passes. It can appear impossible to console a person who has lost someone close to them. The biggest way people express their sympathy and regret to the existing family members is through flowers. Funeral flowers or sympathy flower arrangements can range from enormous wreath and special arrangements to vase options and plants.

A common thought amongst people, especially anyone new to sending funeral flowers, is what exactly should one send or how much should one spend on funeral flowers. There are numerous different funeral and sympathy flower arrangements available with Brant Florist. The amount you spend plays factor on what you have available and who it is you are honoring. Generally, the closer the connection to the deceased, the bigger the arrangement but again, finances can come into play. There is no real right or wrong, it is more the show of support that matters then the dollar amount spent.

There are some flower arrangements that are more traditionally associated with funeral such as:

Faithful Blessings

Bouquets

The Rural Beauty Wreath

Standing Wreaths

White Promise Spray

Standing Sprays

Sweetly Rest Casket Adornment

Inner casket pieces

Loveliness Casket Spray

Casket sprays

Any of those are a tasteful way of showing your love and support and will be welcomed.

Another concern for those new to having to send funeral flowers is where to send them to – the family home or the funeral home. Depending on the arrangement you are having delivered plays a role in where to have them sent. Bouquets, vases, and plants are usually sent to the residence to be displayed throughout the home however can be sent to either location. When you are attending the funeral in person, sometimes the flowers you send make for an easy conversation starter for the family grieving such as thanking one for the lovely flowers sent. If they are at the home, the grieving family may not be aware of them yet. Standing wreaths, casket sprays, and large floral arrangements are more appropriately sent to the funeral home, especially if you are wanting them to be transported the burial.

Regardless of what funeral flowers you choose, they will be appreciated by the family in mourning and a way of showing your support in their time of loss and need.

An Address for Those Left Behind

Dear Heloise: You had a column about putting ADDRESSES ON FUNERAL FLOWERS. You were right on, and I’ll add a few hints.

My sister died, and her children had no idea who some of the people were, and neither did we siblings. People had signed only their first names to cards, with no return address of further identity. We would suggest adding a bit of a note with some extra information, such as “Jane Doe, a sorority sister from college,” etc. My mother received a card with a monetary gift signed only “Margaret.” We had no idea which Margaret, and the postmark was not helpful. We felt terrible that we could not return a thank-you.Kathy H., Nebraska

My condolences on losing your sister. It’s a very hard time, and trying to take care of sending thank-you notes can be difficult. Readers, please sign your full name, especially if you are not a close friend or relative.Heloise

The point made in this helpful hint in sending funeral flowers is an absolute truth. However, anytime you send flowers to someone in replace of your presence, may it be a funeral, baby shower wedding, or another event, the same information that were mentioned in the Washington Post Heloise column should be followed as well.
