Flowers To Personalize A Funeral

Published: January 31, 2024

Flower arrangements have long been a part of expressing sympathy to loved ones after a loss or providing tribute and uplift during a funeral service or visitation. Flowers can be used to create a personalized memorial that faithfully reflects your loved one’s life and passions. If your loved one had a love of roses or a preference for carnations, utilizing those special blooms in a funeral arrangement automatically brings your loved one’s presence into the room. Flowers can be used to express a loved one’s favorite color or fragrance as well.

Flowers can also express a person’s passions and interests through themed arrangements and unique displays. Whether your loved one was a card player, a veteran, a lover of music, or anything under the sun, skilled florists can work with you to create a custom design of flowers for a one-of-a-kind tribute that celebrates your loved one’s life and legacy.

Adding a personalized ribbon banner is another lovely way to pay tribute through the flowers for a loved one’s funeral. Whether emblazoning your loved one’s name in glitter or adding a loving phrase or sentiment, a satin ribbon can add a tender touch to funeral flowers.

At Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home, we understand the importance of creating a personalized tribute that truly reflects your loved one’s life and passions. Sympathy floral designs can help to create a unique and meaningful tribute that honors your loved one’s memory. From themed arrangements to unique displays, our skilled local florists will work with you to present the perfect representation for your loved one. Our local florists provide wreaths, memorial trees, bouquets, specialty sprays, potted plants, and much more. You can even put them together in a floral family package. 

If we are caring for a loved one, allow us to take care of your expression of sympathy by connecting you with our local florists through our website. There’s no need to enter our funeral home address or the service details—our order system already has this information. Just pick out the flowers, add your message, and pay online. Your order is immediately sent to our local flower shop. We retain a copy of your order, so we know that your flowers are on their way.

When the funeral is concluded, you can preserve the memory of a loved one with a custom, hand-made design utilizing the flowers and greenery from their services from an entire bouquet to a single rose. Added personalization, such as their name or Bible quote, gives your piece a special touch.

Flowers are a heartfelt way to pay tribute to your loved one’s memory and to provide comfort and support during a difficult time. Preserving the flowers following a funeral will bring comfort to you and your family for years to come.
