If you have recently lost a friend or family member, we would first like to offer our sincere condolences. And if you are looking for the appropriate funeral flowers to send to the memorial service, the team from Port Charlotte Florist is here to help with your selection. We know that this can be a difficult time and are happy to do whatever we can to make sure the most beautiful arrangements arrive to commemorate your loved one,
If you are a member of the immediate family, you may be involved in choosing the official funeral flowers, including casket sprays, floral pillows, urn florals or church arrangements. These items are customarily the responsibility of those closest to the deceased. These flowers can be traditional, or reflect the personality of the decedent. For instance, our Island Memories Casket Spray will remember the life of someone who loved life here in South Florida, with all of its tropical beauty.
If you are a relative, a work colleague, or a family friend, you may wish to send flowers to the funeral home for the memorial service. These flowers can be floral designs, such as a standing spray, wreath, or cross; or more casual, such as a floral basket or vase of their favorite flowers.
Floral baskets, bouquets and even green plants are also appropriate to send to the private residence of the grieving family. You may wish to include a meaningful condolence gift, or gourmet gift basket the family can share with visitors or guests.
What if You Missed the Services? If you heard the news of your friend’s passing after the services are completed, it is still acceptable – and encouraged – to send flowers as soon as you hear. The arrival of a beautiful floral bouquet weeks after the funeral will actually help the family as they continue adjusting to life without their loved one.
The team at Port Charlotte Florist is ready to assist you with whatever you may need in this emotional time. We work with all of the area funerals homes and will take care of the arrangements for you.
