Choosing Tributes

There are no strict rules for choosing funeral flowers except to follow your heart. Funeral flowers are a way of conveying a message for which words are sometimes inadequate. They provide a means of sending a last message to a family member, loved one, friend or colleague, and also convey your sympathy with the bereaved.

Generally speaking coffin sprays are provided by the main mourners, close family or friends responsible for the funeral arrangements. Smaller sprays are appropriate but would not normally be placed on the coffin unless there were no other suitable flowers.

Similarly "name" tributes most often originate from the close family or friends.

An alternative to a coffin spray is a cross, which is placed on the coffin. There are 2 foot crosses available for use on a child's coffin or casket, whilst 3, 4 and 5 foot crosses can be provided for an adult.

There is a vast range of personal tributes, guitars, trains, teddy, rabbit etc which can be provided and, if required, your own design can be made up. Regimental or club insignia can be made up and our florists are happy to discuss with you how these can best be made up to do justice to the design. Note that individual designs vary significantly in cost depending on the complexity of the design and preparation work involved, so please contact us for details.

Funeral flowers made up in an oasis base will last longer than a bouquet. Hand tied bouquets, which are packed with water, may not be appropriate to send to the funeral as they need to be kept upright, this can not be guaranteed during the journey by car from the funeral home to the cemetery or crematorium.

For those who wish their flowers to be taken home by the family or passed on to a local hospital or nursing home, choose a bouquet or basket arrangement.

You can choose to have a sympathy card placed on the tribute with your message to your loved one, or to the family. If you feel a card is not appropriate, or there are no words - then you can choose not to have a card.

Favourite colours and flowers can be incorporated into your tribute where appropriate and subject to availability - our staff are there to help guide you and offer advice where required.

Flowers speak where words sometimes can not, your choice of tribute is a message from your heart and your choice will come naturally from your heart.
