Our Funeral Tribute Book

The following images are from our Tribute Book which highlights our best work and the variety of arrangements we can create for you. Please, remember that floral designs are affected by seasonal availability of certain flowers and their cost. Our staff will work with you to create exactly what you want to express about your loved one with flowers in an unique, tasteful way.

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.

Casket Pillows

Casket Pillows are pinned inside 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.

 Standing Sprays

Standing Sprays, Wreaths and Custom Pieces are most often displayed on an easel or tripod and placed to the side of the casket. They are intended to be viewed from the front side. Some examples of our work are below.

 Custom Arrangements

We do Special and Custom Arrangements by request. The floral staff at Aberdeen Florist will be happy to create anything for your individual needs. Many of our customers want to incorporate something tangible belonging to their loved one in the funeral arrangement (a childhood toy, a favorite antique, etc.). Or they want the arrangement to reflect something about their loved one. This may simply be a multi-colored wreath of many flowers symbolizing the varied aspects of a person's character or a standing spray in a specific shape that reflects something about the loved one. When you come in, we'll sit down and discuss what YOUR ideas are and present you with several options based on flower availability and pricing.

 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.

Another form of Funeral Basket are our European Baskets which 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. They include houseplants and annuals and perennials in the baskets.

 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.

 Blooming and Foliage Plants

We carry a large selection of foliage and blooming plants which can be appropriate
for any occasion including expressing sympathy. These plants are usually taken home
by family members and become beautiful houseplants for many years.
