Planning a funeral service is one of those bittersweet experiences in life. The bitter part is having to acknowledge that someone you love has died. The sweet part is having the opportunity to give them a fitting final send-off. A funeral home in Martensville, SK will provide all the help you need. One of the items you’ll need to address involves flowers. Wherever there’s a funeral service, there are flowers. But what can you do with the flowers after the service is completed. What follows is a look at several options available to you. One or more of these recommendations just might get your creative juices flowing.
Give Them to Family and Friends…and Keep Some For Yourself Too
One option is to let family and friends take the floral arrangements after the funeral service is over. This will at least ensure that the flowers continue to be enjoyed even after the funeral. In fact, if you take a bouquet and put it in a vase of water, you might be able to keep the flowers looking vibrant and fresh for a week or more. You might also want to preserve the flowers through simple dehydration techniques. Otherwise, you could donate the flowers to organizations that can then beautify their premises with the floral arrangements.
Use Them for a Celebration of Life Service
Do you plan to hold a celebration of life service at some point after the funeral service? If the celebration of life event will be held a short time after the funeral service, then you might wish to reuse the floral arrangements. This will help to keep costs down. As you might imagine, going this route will require that you hold the celebration of life or memorial service within a short time frame after the funeral service. That way, the flowers will still look fresh.
Use Them in Your Garden
Can the flowers or plants you buy for the funeral service be replanted in a garden or even be transported to a flowerpot and maintained at home? If so, it might be a good idea to go this route. This can be a great way to memorialize the deceased, and it will help to keep their memory alive. This will be especially appropriate if the deceased had enjoyed gardening.
