Giving Flowers, a Lesson in Etiquette

Life is full of diversity and can present us with many different situations. While some are joyful, some can be very sad. Flowers are an expression of comfort at the time of loss and are the physical presence of love and feelings for the loss of a loved one or comfort and respect for a family member or friend. The comfort flowers bring to grieving families reaffirms the purpose flowers play in all of life's celebrations, especially at the time of losing someone close. We have the popular traditional funeral spray, large and stately and are generally used when close to family or ordering from a large company or group. Also used as an expression of comfort is the beautiful European Dish garden, complete with green and flowering plants, trimmed with fresh flowers, branching birds and beautiful bow. A beautiful foliage or flowering house plant set in a handsome wicker basket or decorative ceramic pot is also an appealing display of respect that is generally taken home in memory by a family member or friend.
