When a loved one passes away you want to give them the send-off they deserve that truly celebrates their life, and flowers traditionally form a big part of that. Here at Your Flower Story, we can offer support and guidance at every step of the way when choosing your floral tributes. We understand it can be confusing and difficult to decide what to choose, especially at a very sensitive time. Below we discuss some of the options we offer, which we would be honoured to provide for your loved one.
You can also be assured that we are able to deliver your flowers in a Covid-19 safe manner. We can liaise directly with the funeral home and arrange for safe drop-off of your chosen flowers on the day of the funeral, taking that stress away from you.
Flowers put on top of the coffin are usually chosen and purchased by the immediately family of the deceased and form the main floral display at the funeral. We can work with you to create a bespoke spray of any size or colour, that truly represents your loved one.
Along with casket sprays, floral letters spelling out special words are frequently chosen to appear in the hearse alongside the coffin. We can make them using any colour blooms in the shape of any word you like, making them a beautiful choice to honour your loved one.
Our experienced florists love to work with our clients to create bespoke tributes that represent the passions and interests of their loved ones. Let your imagination know no bounds – we can create shapes, logos, football shirts, modes of transport – all of that and more. Let us turn your vision into floral magic.
A cross is a symbol of belief; it reaffirms faith and provides comfort at a difficult time. This is one of the most popular family tributes; ‘the family cross’. The crucifix can range from 2 feet to 5 feet in length and can be made of solid white chrysanthemums or a mixture of flowers and foliage.
Floral Heart Tributes are indicative of the love and compassion felt by those close to the bereaved and sending a floral heart tribute to a funeral makes a deeply personal statement. The floral hearts that we make can range in size and can be made of solid white flowers or a mixture of fresh flowers and foliage.
These are often used to symbolise a loved one being at rest. We can work with your choice of size and colour flowers to create a truly beautiful display.
These are the tributes most commonly associated with funerals and are usually sent by close family and friends. On our wreaths page we have a selection of beautiful options to choose from, but of course we are always more than happy to work with you to create something entirely bespoke.
A posy of flowers is a delicate dome-shaped design that often accompanies a larger family tribute, arranged so that the flowers can be viewed easily from all angles. It is also a suitable gesture to be sent by work colleagues, distant relatives, and close friends to accompany family flowers. The style can range from a simple design using chrysanthemums, to a more complex design containing a mix of flowers such as roses, freesia, lilies, and gerbera.
These make a beautiful gift for a loved one of the deceased – a gentle way to say you are there for them. We can make them to any specification or, if it is easier for you, we can design a lovely seasonal arrangement for you.
Sheaves are a scaled back version of a bouquet that is appropriate for any mourner to send. Instead of being wrapped in plastic or paper, they are instead tied with twine or ribbon, and are a lovely way to offer your condolences.
