The death of a loved one. This single phrase is often the cause of a person’s destruction, a permanent damage that can never be undone. Sometimes, we prepare for the worst in hope that we won’t feel as desolate. But sadness prevails still.
At times like that, as a friend, as a family, you want to show them that you care. And sometimes, a heartfelt bouquet of natural funeral flowers can heal the soul, even if just a bit.
There are basically two types of flowers you can give in a funeral. One of them is the bouquet that you send to the bereaved ones to tell your condolences. For this one, there are various factors that you need to think about and as trivial as they are, you are showing care if you think about them seriously.
The first rule to funeral flowers is that they don’t have to be huge or extravagant. The purpose of the bouquet can mean anything depending on how it’s arranged. It can be interpreted as, “We’re deeply sorry for your loss.” Or “Everything’s going to be fine.”. Yet, it can also mean, “It’s a sunny day!” which doesn’t make sense at all! An example would be sending a whole bouquet filled with sunflowers.
Is using natural, live flowers better than fake ones? On one side, we don’t want to bother the family by having to care about the flowers again. During this grieving time, many things have to be taken care of. Yet, it’s a good choice if you think that the receivers can get even if just a little bit distracted from their sadness. Natural funeral flowers can heal the soul in ways you can never imagine.
If choosing the kind of bouquet that you want proves to be challenging, you should give www.briarroseflowers.co.uk a visit. The florist is very creative and commonly works with a rustically themed flower arrangement. The florist also commonly uses dead colors, which creates a beautiful, yet not so vibrant flower arrangement, befitting grieving time.
After the flowers
Remember to include some heartfelt messages with the flowers. You may not be able to do more to help the family, but at the very least, words at the right time can uplift the soul. You don’t need to write a whole paragraph of nice things, just several words to show that you care and that everything will be fine.
Friendly help with how the flowers should be taken care of is also a good idea! You never know; distractions work wonders during these times, such as moving the flowers to a vase and spraying them daily. You can slip in a small piece of paper telling them what they should do with the flowers or what the flowers meant.
More than formality
We are concerned to see how many people regard sending flowers as a mere formality with no sincerity involved. Death is tragic to everyone even when we don’t know who it was in the coffin. But we will and can relate to that feeling of loss. Show a little sincerity and the natural funeral flowers that you sent will look prettier with it.
