Funeral & Sympathy
The Little Flower Co.
Offering floral tributes as an expression of love, sympathy and respect at a funeral is one of mankind’s oldest traditions, and although today many bereaved families opt to request charitable donations instead, there is no reason not to express your sorrow by sending sympathy flowers as well.
When someone dies it is often difficult to find the right words to comfort their loved ones, but sending a sympathy bouquet or flower arrangement to the family home is the perfect way to convey your condolences and bring a measure of cheer to the bereaved.
Offering a wreath or flower arrangement to the deceased at the funeral or cremation is an act of remembrance, expressing your love and symbolising a parting gift.
The Little Flower Company is experienced at creating beautiful bespoke bouquets and posies, stunning sprays, handmade wreaths, sympathy baskets and inspirational arrangements as funeral tributes, adornment for the service venue, to bedeck the casket or condolence gifts for those who have suffered a loss.
We expertly design and make up floral funeral tributes to your specifications, or if you prefer we can make suggestions about appropriate colours, form, and the type of flowers. We deliver funeral flowers in Frome, Warminster and the surrounding towns and villages, either to private addresses, or direct to funeral homes. We are also members of Interflora, so we are able to arrange for you to send flowers for funerals anywhere across the UK, or the world, so that you are able to make a heartfelt tribute and “say it with flowers” even when you can’t be there yourself.
In the local area we do same day delivery, but for funeral flowers we would suggest ordering them at least the day before the funeral so that we can be sure to get them there on time, particularly if you are sending them to a funeral home, church or crematorium. You are, of course, welcome to order your floral tribute and pick it up from our flower shop in Frome or Warminster.
There are no hard and fast rules about which type of flowers or colours of blooms you should send to a funeral or bereaved relatives. There is some etiquette involved, though. Only immediate family members should choose the spray or wreath that adorns the coffin, while wreaths from the rest of the close family members are placed around it during the service or wake. Extended family members usually choose small sprays or basket arrangements, while friends and business associates should opt for posies, bouquets in disposable vases or sympathy baskets.
If you find yourself in a sad and emotional time, contact The Little Flower Company so that we can help you convey with flowers the feelings you find difficult to express in words.
