    When ordering flowers for a funeral service there are a variety of arrangement designs to be considered. We are very aware of what a difficult time this is and a member of our staff will sit down with you and patiently go through our reference books in order to help you make your decisions.

       Among the most common floral tributes are:

          Funeral Baskets

    Funeral Baskets are normally plastic containers with a handle but they can also be wicker or willow baskets. They're designed to be displayed on a stand or on the floor. Below are some examples.

Below is the center basket of a three basket arrangement.
Directly below that is how the complete arrangement looks. The side baskets reflect the colors in the larger one but, with some additional flowers, have their own unique look.





Often funeral baskets are arranged to compliment the casket spray. The ones below are an example of that.




            European Baskets

European Baskets are usually wicker or willow with a handle and are appropriate for any occasion including expressing sympathy. We have them in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and they can contain both blooming and foliage houseplants. The plants in a European Basket remain in their individual pots and after the services family members often distribute them among the immediate family. Below are a few examples of the Europeans we have created. If you click on each image you'll get a closer look and more info on what plants and flowers were used.

           Casket Sprays

Casket Sprays are designed to rest on top and cover the majority of a closed casket. They are normally the largest of the funeral arrangements and are often combined with matching standing sprays on either side of the casket. Below are some examples of our work. Smaller versions of these sprays are available for the closed end of a partially opened casket. A spray's color scheme, the types of flowers used and the overall size of the arrangement is the decision of the customer based on discussions with our staff.

Easel Arrangements or Standing Sprays

                                        This standing spray was created for a woman who loved to cook.
                           Woven into the design are a variety of cooking utensils from spatulas to colanders.


                                                        Casket Pillows 

Casket Pillows are pinned to the lid of the casket and represent the children or grand-children
            of the deceased. They are small poignant symbols of a family's love.

Urn Arrangements

Urn Arrangements are increasingly common and there is a wide variety in what people are
requesting. These arrangements were created to be viewed from either one direction or from 360 degrees.
