Benfleet Florist – Choosing flowers
When it comes to expressing your feelings of condolence, only flowers continue through the ages to be the easiest and most important instrument of affection. Be that offering flowers at a funeral in the best regard to the deceased or by delivering a flower arrangement to the family of the deceased. It will always be appreciated as a thoughtful gesture and a way of expressing your feelings for the deceased and show support to his or her family. If you are not exactly certain what type of flowers or flower arrangements will be appropriate for funeral service, you can follow a few simple guidelines which will help you with some factors that you mostly will need to keep in mind whilst choosing your flowers and blooms for the funeral service.
Your Kinship or association with the deceased
When ever you are deciding on the flowers for a funeral service, you should keep in mind a few personal things such as personality or personal memories of the deceased and what indeed may be well received from the grieving family. If you knew the deceased person and they was very close to you, you may have an idea of his or her favourite colours or his or her personality, so that you may choose flowers accordingly. Or If indeed you had a very special or a very close relationship with the bereaved, you can give them a floral tribute that reflects their lifestyle, or indeed their personality, interests, legacy’s etc. One idea for example, is if the deceased was musician, you might ask the florist to make a tribute in the shape of a musical instrument such as a piano or guitar.
Flower /bloom colours
Don’t worry its not important that you need to know exactly everything about funeral or indeed sympathy flower arrangements, all types of flowers and colours are appropriate to convey your condolence when they are tastefully designed. You may choose common types of funeral flowers such as the Lily, Rose, Gladioli or Carnation. And although white is the most common choice for funerals, you may also pick flowers based on a personal choice. Colours can have different meanings: white represents peace and blue represents calm and comfort, and both of these colours can be a good and ideal choice for a funeral.
When choosing flowers for a funeral you may want to keep in mind some of the religious considerations of the deceased and their family. Whilst many religions will appreciate the presence of flowers at the funeral service, there are some religions that generally do not appreciate flowers at the memorial service or funeral. So, find out before buying your flowers for a funeral if this is the case so that you will pay the appropriate religious considerations of the bereaved.
Types of arrangement by age
Age should also considered as one of the important factors when selecting flowers for funerals. Whilst a funeral for an adult person generally requires a traditional flower arrangement such as a floral spray, a floral cushion, or perhaps a sympathy bouquet etc, you may also consider flowers in form of cartoons for children’s funerals.
Depending if you are looking for funeral flowers for the memorial service or for sympathy flowers fto send to the family members, buying flowers from a good local florist who makes a bespoke flower arrangement within your budget can be a good idea. You can give all the information related to the deceased, the funeral date, time and the location etc.
