In the United States, we send, bring, and deliver flowers in celebration of just about every occasion. Valentine’s Day, roses. Christmas, poinsettias. Thanksgiving, orchids and daisies. Veterans and Memorial Day, floral wreaths. Easter, carnations. St. Patrick’s Day, Hanukkah, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Anniversary, Birthday, etc. Flowers, flowers, and more flowers! Even when there isn’t a holiday, there’s something serene and comforting about flowers that just brighten up some of our worst days.
That comforting beauty and serenity in floral arrangements are recommended for funerals to help people remember better times. Studies have shown that funeral services omitting flower arrangements were described by attendees as “depressing, dark, gloomy, incredibly sad and somber.”
Flowers over caskets, floral wreaths and sprays at funeral services and, sympathy arrangements for those who have lost their loved ones are a method of adding color to the dark times people face while grieving.
The subtle radiance flowers bring to a dark room and that trace of cheer amongst overwhelming sadness is just what people need while they cope with the loss of a loved one. That’s why Heaven’s Maid takes a great deal of care in selecting the arrangements we offer for delivery. We make every effort to be sure our customers are comfortable with our offerings because we don’t want coping with the loss of a loved one to be harder than it already is.
