It’s hard to find words to comfort friends and family members who have experienced a loss, and perhaps harder still to offer comforting thoughts to those you don’t know very well. Flowers beautifully express sympathy, support, remembrance and tribute.
Flowers for these occasions can range from potted plants to vased flowers to formal arrangements and wreaths. While there are no rules for colours or particular flowers, there are some traditions which families may wish to be observed:
Live plants and floral arrangements in baskets or containers are considered especially appropriate to express one’s sympathy for the family or business associates of the deceased. Toronto Florist Shop can deliver these directly to the home or office.
Wreaths, floral crosses and some other formal arrangements are usually sent by groups or organizations to the funeral home to mark someone’s distinguished service.
Flowers intended to be laid on the casket are usually reserved for family members. Other arrangements, called tributes, commemorating the deceased’s causes, hobbies or Armed Forces service, may be sent by family members or close friends.
