The many floral choices for funerals

Floral tributes are a popular and long standing tradition at funerals throughout the UK. They add colour to the event and pay a loving and respectful tribute to the deceased. In addition to this, the colours and species of flowers sometimes have special meanings to express specific sentiments.

Traditional bouquets and arrangements are still widely used, but these days there are many more modern options to choose from including 3D shaped designs. You can opt for floral lettering to spell out names or relationships. Alternatively you can decide to have floral tributes in specific shapes, such as stars, teddy bears, books, hearts or even pillows. Skilled florists can create all kinds of bespoke arrangements to commemorate the deceased, including notable symbols that reflect their life and their passions.

When you choose flowers there are several factors to keep in mind, including how they will be transported to the cemetery or crematorium and what will be done with them after the funeral. In many cases the funeral directors you work with can take care of the practical arrangements in line with your wishes to save you the job.

Our funeral directors in Birmingham can provide a full service, including helping to choose floral tributes, ordering them, transporting the flowers and setting them up. After the funeral we can arrange for them to be placed where you want or we can distribute them locally to bring comfort to people across the area. If you choose this option we will remove all of the cards from the tributes and give them to you so you can read the messages people have left and send thank you cards if you wish.

Whatever your floral requirements we can provide a suitable service for you. We have been established in Birmingham for many years and endeavour to meet the individual needs of every person who comes to us. You can discuss your flower ideas with us and we will offer advice and recommendations. It is important to remember that flowers are seasonal so the availability of different blooms will change through the course of the year. This can affect the price and may result in a need to choose suitable alternatives. We will help with this.
