What kind of flowers are appropriate for a funeral?

All Flowers and Plants are appropriate however customers should consider do they want their floral sympathy tribute to be at the visitation, service, and grave or visitation, service and after taken home by family or friends. 
The most crucial piece of information to remember is funerals without any flowers or plants are much colder, sterile events.  Many times we hear from customers that the flowers brought warmth and life to the service.  Often giving mourners a topic of conversation of how the deceased loved a color, loved a type of flower, and or loved a design style.  Sometimes sympathy floral tributes help families know people in a loved one's life that they may have not been acquainted with in the past.  Remember visitations and funeral services are for the living to help with the grieving process and to help heal from the loss of a loved one.   George's Flowers also offers keepsake items in our sympathy offerings. People often mention to our sales team how they received a plant, crystal cross, windchimes, or angel statue during the funeral of a loved one that is important to them many years later.
