After hearing the news of a death, most of us are anxious to find
someway to express our sympathy and to offer support
and nurturing. Although we all know that death is part of life, it
is never easy to endure the loss of a loved one. Nothing
is more appropriate than the age old tradition of sending flowers.
Flowers have a long tradition with the funeral etiquette
and rituals. According
to Flower Shop Network, archeological records show evidence of flowers being
buried with the remains of Neanderthal man. Ancient civilizations across Europe
and the Middle East are reported to have entombed flowers with their loved ones.
Flowers offer a beautiful metaphor for the ongoing cycle of life beginning as
a seed, then as a sprout, to a full blossoming flower and finally wilting petals.
Meme's Florist can help during a difficult time by
providing local and regional flower delivery to Glens
Falls, Saratoga, and Lake George, as well as same-day
delivery for sympathy flowers to Clifton Park and Albany
bereavement and funeral ceremonies. Flowers bring comfort
to the living as they commemorate the lives of the deceased. They
express gratitude for the privilege of knowing the departed.
There has been a trend in recent years toward “in lieu of flowers…” While
a contribution to a charity in the name of the deceased
is always a fitting tribute, the value and importance
of flowers sent in sympathy can never be understated.
Flowers are sent to funerals and memorial services for
a variety of reasons. It
is often difficult for us to know what to say to show how we feel. Flowers
provide a means of expression that help do that for us. Flowers and floral
arrangements provide a visual expression of love, sympathy and respect. They
represent community support for the bereaved. Flowers can help balance
our emotions during the time of death, as the beauty of the flowers softens the
pain of loss.

Florist can help when deciding the style of arrangement
to send. Different
religions and cultures often dictate the colors and types
of flowers appropriate to send. There are many choices of arrangements
available, but they usually fall into these categories.
- Vase or home-style arrangements are usually
sent to the funeral home with the intent that a family
member will take them home after the service. Sometimes
these are sent directly to the home of the family.
- Funeral flower wreaths come in a variety of
shapes and sizes. Wreaths bring a special meaning
to the service. The circular shape is the symbol
for eternal life. These go to the funeral home
and a cemetery if a burial is scheduled.
- Funeral flower sprays come in several styles,
but most the common are the standing sprays and the
easel sprays. These are also delivered to the
- Live plants and dish gardens are often welcomed
as gestures of sympathy and condolence. The spathefora
or peace lily is a very common plant to
send. Fresh flowers from our Saratoga flower
shop can be added to any live plant arrangement
to brighten it up for the service. These
can be sent to the funeral home or to the home of the
- Casket sprays are usually ordered by the immediate
family. They come in a variety of sizes, but
the two most common are the full length and the half
length sizes. The full length extends over the
full length of the closed casket lid. The half-length
arrangement covers the closed portion of an open casket.
- Sympathy Gift baskets containing flowers,
plants, fruit, gourmet food items are nice to send
to the home of the family. It is usually not
considered appropriate to send these to the funeral
- Military funerals usually
follow specific practices. If a flag is draped on the casket,
then only standing sprays are used. Funeral
flowers with red, white and blue are often requested. Military
symbols can be used with the funeral flower arrangements.
In some cases, we only learn about a death after the
funeral has taken place. Do not despair. It
is considered proper to send condolence flowers to family
members at their homes up to a month after the funeral
to Flower Shop Network, some people prefer to send flowers
at a later date. Although the initial outpouring
of support is great comfort during the funeral, a few
weeks later the bereaved often feel lost and alone. Sending
flowers or a plant with a personalized message lets them
know you are still thinking of them.
