Flowers remain the most time-honored way to express love and support for a friend or family member’s memorial service. Many things have changed over the years; we see fewer traditional funerals, more celebrations of life. Many are also opting for cremation, so traditional sprays and casket flowers may not be appropriate. Still, flowers convey heartfelt emotion and sympathy and remain an integral element during these times. If the family asks for a donation instead of flowers, consider doing both – the first to honor a cause important to the deceased, the second to show a tangible sign of your empathy. Can you imagine a celebration of life without flowers?
The experts at Peoples Flowers are here to help you to choose the perfect flowers to reflect the life of your loved one. If you have missed sending an arrangement to the funeral home, sending a bouquet to the family home is entirely appropriate. There are traditional flowers that represent sympathy, or you can have us create a special bouquet of their favorite blooms. We love the idea of sending an arrangement that has a keepsake element that can be treasured in the weeks and months ahead. For instance, our Heavenly Remembrance features lovely serene flowers adorning a cross that can hang on the wall as a lasting memory. Other thoughtful options include a long-lasting plant or a dish garden; our wind chimes are also a poignant memorial to the deceased.
Wayne Pollack, owner of Peoples Flowers – and his team – are honored to help you to celebrate the life of a special person you love. We will do everything we can to make sure their funeral or memorial service flowers are just right and handle all of the delivery details for you. We offer you our sincere condolences at this difficult time.
