A bouquet is a beautiful way to honor your loved one’s passing. The arrangement can also be a great way to show your condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. This can be especially important if you are not able to attend the funeral service or if you live far away from the bereaved family.
The best flowers for a memorial are the ones that symbolize what was most important to your loved one. This could include a special flower, a favorite quote or poem, or something that you know will bring the family joy or comfort.
You can make the arrangements yourself or buy a floral tribute that is already made. If you are making them yourself, choose a flower that is not only beautiful but that is also fragrant and long-lasting.
Besides choosing flowers, you should also consider the vase. It should be clear and preferably glass, as it will not only look nice but keep the arrangement fresh for longer.
If you do not have a vase, try finding a sturdy container that holds a lot of water. You can even use a planter, if available.
Once you have the container, fill it with a layer of water that is two inches deep. Add a small amount of plant food to the water and stir it in well. This will help the plant survive the trip to the cemetery and it will not settle to the bottom of the container.
Then, place the container in a sink and soak it for about ten minutes. Once the water is soaked, you can start to arrange the flowers in the container.
A rosary or other religious flower arrangement is another type of floral tribute that can be sent to a memorial. They are typically styled in the shape of a cross, and they can be placed on the top of the casket or around it.
You can also make a wreath for a memorial using a variety of flowers and greenery. These can be placed on the top of the casket, along the sides or propped up on an easel as a standing wreath.
These can be designed in a variety of styles and sizes to suit the tastes and preferences of the bereaved. You can also find different types of wreaths that are designed for specific remembrances, such as the open heart or a broken heart and cross.
If you are sending a floral spray, it is best to purchase one that is made to fit the size of the coffin. You can buy these at a florist shop or from the funeral home.
When you are placing the floral stems in the foam, you should begin by arranging the largest flowers in the center of the half ball and the other larger-sized or colored blooms in between. Once you have filled the foam with your flowers, you can continue adding more and more flowers until the floral arrangement looks complete.
