Types Of Flower Arrangements

Standing Sprays

From small to large size, standing sprays are available in a range of dimensions. They are usually larger than baskets or wreaths and are placed by the side of the casket. They can be sent directly to the funeral home or family home.

Casket Wreaths

These arrangements are generally larger and placed over the casket once it has been closed. They are usually purchased by the immediate family members and are not meant for others.

Crosses, Hearts & Wreaths

They are usually larger than a basket, but smaller than the standing sprays. They are displayed on a stand that is placed close to the casket at the funeral. An immediate family member or close friend can purchase a wreath, heart or cross and send the arrangement directly to the funeral home.

Baskets And Bouquets

Family members, friends and colleagues can send baskets and bouquets for a grieving family. These arrangements should be sent to the family’s home, but not to the funeral home.
