Guest Blog: Urns and Flowers, Comfort in Times of Sorrow
- by Helen at Urns.com


In our business we meet all kinds of folks who service customers, just like ours. It's always great to partner and learn from them. Sympathy floral designs are such a big part of what we do, when we became "online" friends with Urns.com, it was logical that we take an opportunity to share with each other.  We wrote a guest blog from them and them for us. Cremations are a huge trend right now and their urns are gorgeous. I hope you don't ever need them but if you do, their information just might be what you need. Take it away Helen!!


Here at www.urns.com we understand how difficult it can be when we experience loss. It is during these times when you must rely upon friends and loved ones to help move through the transition period and to help when planning a funeral service.


Many times when people are preparing for a funeral service, they find themselves shopping for both funeral flowers and urns. Although this is indeed a sad time for those who have experienced loss, we know that a thoughtful flower arrangement can not only lift troubled spirits, but also help keep a funeral home from appearing dark and dreary.

By either incorporating colorful and beautiful floral displays, a funeral home is brightened and filled with a hope for growth and new life. Sympathy flowers, as well, show that people care enough about you and your family to send flowers - uplifting spirits during sad times.

At Urns.com we specialize in providing customers with tasteful, elegant, and beautiful urns and cremation jewelry that serve as fitting tributes to the memory of lost loves ones. We also have a number of urns that have hand painted floral designs that help accentuate the beauty of the piece. Urns also allow you to create a memorial for your loved one, such as using a photo urn that allows you to always see your loved one as you remembered them. Or, you can utilize an urn to have a small intimate ceremony between close family and friends. By taking steps such as these, you are able to keep the memory of your loved one alive forever.

We love that Monday Morning Flowers obviously puts a lot of effort into ensuring that all of their arrangements are uplifting. Beautiful flowers arrangements for the wake and the start of the funeral service help to fill in a room, which is especially important for a service involving cremation urns. An simple setting involving the urns, flowers, and framed photos will provide family and friends with much needed comfort.

If you know someone who has recently lost a love one, one of the ways that you can show your support is through a lovely arrangement of flowers to help decorate the funeral service and go with the urns.

Urns always allow for you to keep your loved ones close and we are very happy that we have made each other’s acquaintance with Monday Morning Flowers. We hope that you will go and visit our website when making your selection of funeral service flowers.

How to Make a Flower Puppy

It's amazing what you can do with 12 carnations and a little bit of creativity. Our Floral Designer Rocio loves making puppy arrangements so here she shares her tips with you! Here's what you will need ~ 12 full size carnations, floral glue, floral tape, a floral container, 1/3 of a block of floral foam and some assorted greenery.  First take your wet floral foam and tape it securely into your floral container.  Slowly start adding the 12 carnations starting with the top to form the head, the ears, the face and the 2 front legs. Keep going, adding carnations but only using 12 total! 
Now he has his 2 front legs, sitting over the edge of the container.  Using the floral glue, add the eyes and the nose. Be creative here. We use eyes and noses for the floral industry but you can use felt, screws or even a pip cleaner to form these facial features.   Next, start filling in with assorted greenery and mosses. This will become his little bed!  Be sure to fill in along the back. Reme…

How to Carry a Bridal Bouquet. It's not so hard....

People often ask me what is the right way to hold a bridal bouquet. I know some ladies think it's going to be hard but truthfully, even a cascade is very easy to carry. As in the example to the right, that's me holding a very sweet tear drop shaped bouquet (compliments of our bride Coleen). As you can see, I'm able to hold the bouquet with one hand and it's not uncomfortable for me in anyway.

The key to holding a cascade is to drop it down to the waist  level. I've seen many pictures of girls holding their bouquets too high, which is a very uncomfortable way to hold these. Second, holding it too high, especially in the case of the bride, blocks all the beautiful detail of their dresses. Remember, when you are walking down the aisle you want to appear relaxed and natural!

Another issue I've seen is to point the bottom of the bouquet outwards. Make sure that the bouquets sits nice and flush against your body. This will give you the best possible view in the pictu…
