Individual remembrances for personal tributes

Loss of a loved one is not something we like to discuss. Even if their passing was somewhat expected due to illness or age, the actual loss still causes a severe shock to anyone’s system. Funerals and memorials are our way of bidding our loved ones farewell and paying our last respects. It’s also important for families and friends so that they can begin the healing process.

When it comes to funeral flowers and sympathy flowers, florists more than have your needs covered. From standard sympathy bouquets to more elaborate designs like funeral crosses, online florists make it that much easier to place your flower order without having to leave your home. For many, shopping for funeral flowers online makes all the difference. There’s no need to wipe away those tears or try to cover up those puffy eyes as you browse and make your choice.

If you are happy with something simple like a casket spray or wreath, you will find plenty of beautiful options. Of course, if you want to honour your loved one in a truly unique way, then an individual remembrance is perfect.

These kinds of remembrances include various designs that reflect the personality of your loved one. So, for example, if your grandmother passed away and you know that she loved her weekly Bingo nights, you could have your florist create a Bingo board out of flowers. If he loved golf, you could order golf ball type flower arrangements (round balls of white flowers) and have them placed on top of slender vases.

Choose a theme for the memorial service and have all guests dress accordingly. You may like to do something a little different after the service and take a trip to his or her favourite spot. So, instead of being stuck inside a stuffy hall, you could all make your way to a park, garden, or wherever your dear loved one loved to spend countless hours simply enjoying the view and escaping their worries.

Use this opportunity to tell happy stories and don’t hold back if you feel the desire to laugh. These happier times are exactly what help us through the grief.
