Choosing funeral flowers can be a difficult decision, but Jenny’s Florist is here to help. We have provided flowers for funerals since our opening in 1981 and can make a variety of suggestions to help you choose the right blooms and most beautiful arrangements for your loved one.
Though traditional funeral flowers are often simple displays including lilies and gladioli, there is no right or wrong way to choose flowers for a funeral and many modern families go for brighter arrangements that they think their loved one would have enjoyed.
Funeral Flowers, Ilkeston
At funerals, we use flowers to say the things that are most difficult to express. This makes the choice of flower quite important and it is not unusual for families to need some guidance while they are picking out stems. At Jenny’s Florist, our experienced staff are more than happy to help you.
Though funerals are very sad events, they can also be a moment of reflection and an opportunity to celebrate the life of your loved one. With this in mind, we offer all sorts of options from simple sprays to tributes and lettering.
Choosing the Right Arrangement
There is a wide range of arrangement options you could go for, and really, it is down to personal choice. You may be looking for flowers to put on top of the coffin, or to add some floral decoration to the service - whatever you need, Jenny’s Florist can help you decide.
These hand tied flowers are ideal for lying on top of the coffin. You can choose from a wide range of colours and flowers to create a unique spray for your loved one. You may also wish to have standing sprays, which will make a lovely addition to the funeral service.
Wreaths are often chosen to as a way to show your eternal love. There are many different designs you can choose from and there are lots of flowers that will look devine in this arrangement.
As an alternative to the more traditional wreath, heart shaped arrangements are becoming increasingly fashionable as a way for families to show their love. Again, you can choose from a wide range of colours and flowers to create the perfect display.
Lettered tributes are also rising in popularity and we can create bespoke designs to spell out your loved one’s name. These flowers are a fitting tribute to the memory of your loved one and may sit on top of the coffin in the funeral car.
There are many floral tributes that we could create and we have catered for many requests over the years. From teddy bears through to a floral Elvis, tributes offer you a way to represent some of the character of your loved one and celebrate their life.
At the end of the service, a good way for family members to say a final goodbye is to lay a single stem on top of the coffin as they leave. This is a symbolic gesture that can make all the difference.
