Flowers and Funerals During Covid-19

Funerals During Covid-19

Funerals During Covid-19

You may be wondering what is appropriate to send to funerals during Covid-19 and we believe that anything you would have sent to the viewing/memorial/service is still appropriate. Just because the number of attendees is limited, it does not mean that your show of support through sending a floral tribute is not appreciated. As a matter of fact, we think it's more important than ever! Take for example this funeral heart wreath that we recently created for the tribute to a beloved mother and wife. Imagine how serene and soothing this design would be in an almost empty funeral home. 

Heart funeral wreath for sympathy A vibrantly colored spray or wreath is just the thing to bring a soft smile and a little kindness during a very difficult time. Not exactly sure what to send? Our talented and thoughtful designers are here to help you decide what is appropriate. 

vibrantly colored spray or wreathFamily funerals are not the same. Limited attendees, barren viewing rooms - just so sad. Floral tributes are appreciated more than ever. There are many options of styles that can be sent from something small that the family can take home to something large and showy that is displayed on an easel. Casket sprays (the floral pieces that are placed on top of the casket that is either completely closed or half open) are a must for a viewing service or perhaps a beautiful wreath of flowers to be placed around a cremation urn. These pieces usually cost more than small designs and are provided by the immediate family. Not sure what type of floral design to send? Blooming and green plants are another wonderful option.

Flowers and plants can do so much to add to the warmth of the space, even if attendance is limited.  If you'd like to see more of our funeral and sympathy designs be sure to visit our website sympathy section or follow us on Instagram or Facebook where we share daily pictures of what we are creating at the shop.

Never heard of a Grave Blanket? Don't worry, your probably aren't alone.

Why are flowers more expensive on Valentine's Day?

Why are flowers more expensive on Valentine’s Day ? Many people are getting flowers for their loved ones for Valentine's Day, but they may wonder why the price tag on them is suddenly increased. Here are 4 reasons to help explain the reason! 1. Roses need to grow quicker It takes 14 weeks to grow a rose. If you do the math you will soon realize that there aren’t 14 weeks between Christmas and Valentine’s Day. The timescale between those two peaks isn’t big enough for the roses to grow at their natural pace. To encourage the flowers to grow, the flowers need extra heat and light which costs more money! 2 The Roses have to be cut quicker More demand for red roses equals less time to cut all the roses . This means that the flowers have to be cut in a very small window of time. To keep up with the demand growers need to invest in extra labor and overtime, which of course costs money! 3 More Roses have to be transported Because everyone wants their roses at the same ti
