Arrangement of Flowers for Funeral

SocialMettle Staff Sep 29, 2018
Bidding goodbye to a loved one is very difficult. A beautiful funeral flower arrangement is a good way to pay your respect for those who have passed away.
Funeral flowers are purchased for various reasons. The most common reason is to express gratitude to the family of the individual who has died. They are often given in a bouquet, basket, or a vase.
Funeral flower arrangements are often sent or purchased as an expression of sympathy. They are also bought for the decoration of the venue and the casket. The most common preparation is the holy cross. It symbolizes hope, faith, and religion.

Affordable Arrangements

A funeral is a sober event, and florets for it are known to be expensive, but you can also buy cheap ones. Try doing the task yourself without involving someone.

» Decorate the venue with roses and carnations. Roses are the best choice, as they are affordable, readily available, and symbolize love.

» Start seeking online. Purchasing them online saves money.
» If you are arranging the event, purchase them in bulk from the florist. You can avail a discount.

» The selection of cheap blooms are for those who you knew but were not close too.

Personalized Arrangements

Making your own provision will not only save money, but will also add a personal touch to your offering. You will need silk or fresh florets, a vase, ribbon, florist foam, knife or scissor, and wires.

» Take a basket or a wooden container.
» If you are using fresh blooms, also add a piece of floral foam and fit it closely in the vase or container. Fill it with water. Use a dry foam for silk blossoms.

» Take the ones with tall stems, such as roses or carnations. Cut the stems short and press them into the foam so that they absorb water and stay fresh.
» Place the blooms in odd numbers.

» Decorate your vase or wooden container with baby breath or more greenery to fill up the foam.

Unique Arrangements

This choice is left entirely up to you. You can be innovative, but it's very necessary to see that you don't offend the feelings of other people. A simple justification is; your flowers should match the occasion. Here are two unique designs to look for.
Casket Saddle
You require a vase, silk or fresh florets, baby breath, florist foam, floral tape and pins, ribbon, and glue.

» If you are opting for fresh blooms, soak 2 pieces of floral foam in water for a few hours.

» Take the vase and put the foam pieces. Wrap the foam pieces with waterproof floral tape so that it doesn't lose the water.
» Place the blossoms on the foam, and also place some greenery and baby breath.

» Add more blooms if you desire.

» Attach a condolence card with a floral pin.

» Your casket saddle is complete.
Gothic Cross
A cross-shaped pattern is a common sight at funerals. It symbolizes the deceased person's faith in Christianity. To make Gothic cross, you need two wooden planks, silk or fresh vines, floral tape, greenery, baby breath, fragrance, and scissors.

» Buy two wooden planks from the hardware store. Shape the edges so that if joined it looks like cross.
» Clean it with water, and apply fragrance.

» Cut the long stems of the blooms, and stick them on the wood with a floral tape.

» Cover the tape up with baby breath and greenery ties around them with a ribbon.

» Your Gothic cross is complete.
By now you must have got a rough idea on how to make unique funeral flower arrangements and show your love and gratitude for the deceased.
