Casas Adobes Flower Shop has always been honored to help you celebrate life’s happy occasions, and we are equally honored that we can also assist during times of loss. When sending flowers for a funeral or celebration of life, you may be confused as to what is the appropriate type of arrangement to send. Shasta Bowman of Casas Adobes Flower Shop offers this concise and helpful list to begin your selection process. The type of floral arrangement or gift is often based on your relationship to the deceased and where you are sending the arrangement.
* Casket pieces and funeral pillows are reserved for close family to choose and provide.
* Standing sprays and wreaths are suitable both for the service and the graveside. They can also be moved from one to the next.
* Baskets or vases of flowers are suitable for the service or to be delivered to the home.
* Fruit baskets, gifts or plants are sent to the home; bouquets may also, be sent if you missed sending it to the memorial service.
Shasta notes “Here in Tucson, we are seeing a trend towards sending brighter flowers as opposed to the traditional white lily, carnation or gladioli bouquet. Peace lily plants, however, do remain a sentimental choice due to their symbolism and beauty.”
Angels and crosses are meaningful additions to any sympathy arrangements. Casas Adobes Flower Shop has pre-designed crystal cross and angel bouquets; we also give you the option to add these keepsake items to any arrangement. “Remember,” Shasta concludes, “No matter what you send or when you send it, the family will appreciate your act of kindness.”
Casas Adobes Flower Shop offers same-day and rush delivery for funeral services; working with families to fulfill their special requests in their time of need.
