Sympathy & Funeral Flowers
A funeral is a time to remember a loved one, a time to share grief and at the same time celebrate and remember a life. As with any special occasions, flowers have an important role to play at a funeral. They bring a sense of warmth and comfort for the loved one's family and friends. They convey for the sender sentiments of caring and love which are often difficult to put into words. And, they can be designed to reflect something special about the person being remembered.
More than being asked to do flowers for any other special occasion, I am always greatly honoured when asked to design flowers that will be a final tribute to someone's life. I am available to discuss and to help family members put together floral arrangements that suit the occasion of their loved one's passing. I know that this is a difficult time, and many decisions need to be made. If you are wanting to have a personal role in selecting the flowers and arrangements, and would like The Village Green Flower Shop to be the ones designing your floral pieces, then I invite you to call or come into the shop.
Sending sympathy flowers are a special way to send your support and love to the family. Sympathy flowers are designed to create a nice display in the funeral home and are often designed to be one-sided and showy. These pieces can be designed in a traditional or more modern style and are ideal to be displayed in the church or by the graveside after the funeral. Vase arrangements, table arrangements, plants or planters are nice to send as well, so that the family can bring some flowers home with them.
We will always do our best to acquire any special blooms if there is enough time to do so. It is also helpful to come into the shop (or phone) to see the selection of flowers that are available. Because of the nature of funerals, I am happy to come in on weekends or holidays if required. On long weekends and holidays, calls will be forwarded so that we can serve you.
*We offer no charge delivery to all area funeral home on orders of $50 value or more.
