How To Choose Flowers For A Funeral
We have over 15 years experience helping people plan flowers for a funeral. Funeral flowers for your loved one is an opportunity to remember the their life in a way that represents who they really were. I wanted to share this brief list of suggestions to help you through this process.
How to find a funeral florist on Google
Google search terms “Your city, state and florist” – example: Brighton Co florist, or “Florist and the name of your town or city” – example: florist in Brighton Co, or “Florists near funeral home name” – example: florist near Tabor Rice Funeral Home in Brighton Co. The search results will always have Ads at the top, then local florists. This search was “Funeral Florist Brighton, Co” Notice the listings at the top are ads. The number one listing was our shop with a five star rating. Choose a florist with the highest rating. Call them and set up a meeting to discuss your funeral flowers.
Order Arrangements That Tribute Their Life’s and Passion
- What was their passion in life? A themed casket or standing spray with tribute to fishing, sports teams, family activities, motorcycles, etc, really helps memorialize the person’s life.
- What was their favorite colors, or school colors?
- Were they in the military?
This golf club arrangement was made with clubs used by the deceased. We have made many different arrangements with everything from Harley Davidson Motorcycles to fishing.

Purchase Funeral Flowers Directly From A Local Florist
- We work closely with our local funeral home and support their efforts to provide guidance for choosing funeral flowers. However, if you have time it is always best to talk directly to the florist. Most funeral homes provide one stop shopping for the service, which usually includes flowers. The funeral director may have books or samples for you to look at and then include the flowers as part of a package. But, keep in mind the funeral director is not a florist and may not have the knowledge of which flowers are in season or which flowers will last the longest. Often the flowers must look fresh for up to 2-3 days, conditions may be hot or cold, and there may be long transport times. Your professional florist can help you choose the best options for the the season and type of service. You may save money and get better advice on funeral flowers by going directly to your local florist.
Include a picture. Find a picture and have it enlarged. Vickie’s Flowers offers a unique service whereby we scan, edit, print, and mount images for funerals. Retail stores offer printing, but not editing. Again, use Google to find someone to edit your image. The funeral home may offer this service, but ask to see samples of their work. If it looks good and prices are reasonable, then use them.
