When you hear that a friend has lost a loved one, you automatically want to reach out to them to show your support. But if they are having a Dallas cremation and then a celebration of life service, what can you do? There are plenty of options, and that includes sending flowers. While you will want to make some considerations based on the event, flowers are always a nice gift that can follow the death of someone in your friend’s life. Here are some things to think about.
Add Cheerful Beauty To The Event
Celebrations of life are generally more cheerful events than traditional funeral and memorial services. As you choose flowers, you want to find something that will add beauty to the event in a bright, cheerful way. Most flowers have that hope-filled look, but you might choose different colors than you would for a traditional service. Consider something colorful, like yellow or pink instead of a traditional white. You want hope and cheer infused into every bloom.
Show Your Thoughts
Part of the reason you are sending flowers to your friend is to show that you are thinking of them. There might be something special you can do to the arrangement to show just that. You may send their favorite flowers, for example, so they will stand out as something special among other arrangements. You might choose a certain color to signify friendship so they will remember that you are thinking of them.
Consult With The Florist
The florist is going to be your partner in choosing the right flowers for the celebration of life. They work with final services and arrangements on a regular basis and they can give you advice as to what might be nice for the event you are sending flowers to at this time. They can help you find something cheerful within your budget range that will be a good fit. They also know the meanings behind various flowers and colors and can help you convey whatever message you want to send.
Remember The Event Style
While flowers fit in with pretty much any event, you want to keep the event’s style in mind so you don’t send something that won’t fit in quite right. For example, if your friend is having a celebration at a bowling alley, sending a large wreath arrangement might just be in the way. Instead, you might send a ‘flower’ arrangement of candy bars that people can snack on during the celebration. The event style is going to tell you a lot about what you might want to send to your friend.
When you are dealing with a friend’s mourning and the subsequent celebration of life they are having for a loved one after their Dallas cremation, sending flowers can still be a nice thing to do. You can always call the professionals at Hughes Family Tribute Center, find out more about the event, and get advice as to what flowers would fit in so you can get the right message to your friend.
