Flowers have always played an important role in the funeral traditions of most cultures. A floral tributes soothing qualities and the emotional impact they possess help with grief. In ancient cultures, floral and herb essences were used to anoint the bodies of the deceased and aromatic flowers and greens were displayed.
Sympathy tributes vary by region. At Angel Valley Funeral Home in Tucson, most of our arrangements are either the triangular shaped funeral spray or the funeral easel. Both arrangements display well because they are designed to project color and size.
Floral tributes like Casket Sprays and items placed within the casket are normally reserved for family members or very special loved ones. It is suggested you contact the family before ordering items for the casket.
Personalized sympathy tributes that depict an aspect of a person's essence are a growing trend. Be prepared to give the florist a few hints about the person you want to memorialize. If you prefer to send a design that is more a reflection of your style, be sure to communicate that to the florist.
It is appropriate to send a beautiful plant or a European Plant Basket to a service or home. They provide a lasting reminder to the family of the special place their loved one had in your heart.
Flowers are a traditional way to express your sympathy. Some people choose to send flowers to the home immediately while others prefer to wait a week or more. There are no rules. Flowers can be a very comforting reminder during the grieving process that friends haven't forgotten.
Cremations are more common today. A tastefully designed floral tribute adds beauty to any type of memorial service. It is common for the family to have an arrangement designed for display with the urn.
Making a donation to a charity or special institution named by the family is always appropriate. Keep in mind that flowers help you say things that are difficult to express. Flowers also play a functional role, adding warmth to the service and providing visible emotional support to the family.
When groups go in together on flowers, the arrangements can be very special and make a larger showing. There should be room on the floral enclosure card for several names, but if there's not enough space, it is best to sign as a group, such as "The Girls in Accounting" or "The Smith Family." Include a contact name and address on the card so the family knows who to thank.
