Family Expressions

The loss of a family member is one of the most difficult of life’s events. You can send the grieving party a lasting tribute in the form of an elegant, fresh floral sympathy arrangement to express your love and sympathy. Sometimes your choice will be informed by your relationship with the deceased, as in the different types of arrangements below:

Casket Flowers:

A blanket of mixed flowers or roses that covers the top of the casket. Most often sent by a spouse or immediate family.

Funeral Standing Spray:

An arrangement of mixed flowers placed on a wire stand and positioned near the casket. Appropriate for family members or friends to send.

A basket arrangement of mixed flowers placed on a wire stand and positioned near the casket. Appropriate for family or friends to send.

Sympathy Floor Arrangement:

An arrangement of mixed flowers placed on the floor around the casket or placed on a pedestal. Appropriate for family or friends to send.

Open Heart Wreath:

A heart-shaped open wreath of flowers, usually placed on a stand near the casket. Most often sent by a spouse, immediate family member or close friend.

Floral Standing Cross:

Fresh flowers designed in the shape of a standing cross that is positioned on a wire stand near the casket. Appropriate for immediate family members to send.

Satin Casket Cross:

A white satin pillow in the shape of a cross with a spray of fresh roses and greens across the center that is laid within the casket. Appropriate to be sent from children in memory of a parent or grandparent.
