Flowers for the bereaved and for the funeral: overview
There are many types of floral decorations for funerals. Here is a short overview:
Wreaths: the selection of wreaths with flower decoration on one side, wreaths with flowers all around or wreaths for a urn with or without ribbons is large. They are delivered directly to the place where the funeral is being held on the day of burial. Wreaths are very labour intensive and must therefore be ordered in good time (delivery deadline approx. 48 hours).
Floral tributes, bowls and coffin decorations they are delivered directly to the place where the funeral is being held on the day of burial.
Hand-held bouquet as burial gift this is often a less expensive alternative to a wreath. It can be created in different sizes. Just as with the other decorative flowers, it can be positioned in front of or next to the coffin and placed on the grave after the burial.
Condolence bouquets: these are a sign of sympathy and created with the bereaved in mind. They can be purchased locally from your Fleurop florist or ordered via www.fleurop.ch/b2b and delivered to the home of the bereaved.
Gift cards for flowers and plants: if you would like the bereaved to be able to decide themselves when the flowers and/or plants should be delivered, or perhaps you would like them to receive something for planting out the grave, you can buy gift cards locally from your Fleurop florist or order them via www.fleurop.ch/b2b Here you find our gift cards:
