Choosing funeral flowers for a loved one can be a hugely emotional task for anyone who has lost a loved one. As an experienced Sheffield florist, we take pride in helping customers through the decision process, advising and recommending on varieties of flowers, colours, and display options wherever possible.
Our bespoke Sheffield funeral flowers can be tailored to suit the person you are laying rest to; whether that’s a wreath including their favourite flowers, a beautiful casket display, or a special request to suit their personality, interests or hobbies. Popular flower choices for funerals include roses, said to represent love, hope and new beginnings; lilies, representing innocence and purity, and carnations representing devotion and remembrance. And then, of course, is the design. Read on for a few helpful suggestions.
The traditional wreath is a popular, classic choice for funeral flowers. Wreaths were traditionally placed on the doors of those who had recently lost someone and were in mourning, with the circular shape representing the circle of life. Wreaths are a lovely gesture, perfect for sending directly to the funeral or memorial service as a fitting mark of respect. Despite being a traditional choice, there are more contemporary choices available for wreaths. For example, an open heart is a beautiful choice to pay your respects to a loved one.
Sprays and Sheaves
Sprays and sheaves are another popular way to express sympathy and celebrate life at a funeral. Traditionally, sprays consist of a large, flat bouquet of long stem flowers, arranged to be placed upon a casket or coffin. Styles, colours and sizes vary, but the overall effect is beautifully elegant. Sheaves are a great alternative to a bouquet, are mostly hand tied, and can be displayed at the funeral, or delivered to home address following the memorial service or funeral.
Shaped Floral Tributes
If you’re looking for something a bit more personal, shaped floral tributes are a lovely way to celebrate the uniqueness of your loved one. For example, individual letters of a name, open or massed, can be a lovely tribute. Alternatively, shaped designs depicting hobbies, sports or animals may be chosen to honour the personality of the deceased. We even provide Sheffield funeral flowers depicting the logos of our local football teams, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United logos, perfect for avid supporters.
