The price for love is grief. Saying goodbye ranks as one of the most difficult, if not the most difficult, part of life's road most individuals must travel. Flower-filled tributes somehow help us express just how the hurt feels. The flowers symbolise the last physical thing individuals can do to outwardly express the love they feel for the departed. Many consumers choose to express their love and sorrow through flowers.
Personalise standing sprays using the loved one's favourite flowers. The easels look best with large leaf or fern type greenery layering the edges of the arrangement. Mixed sprays utilising the rainbow of different colours of Gerbera daisies, colourful carnations, rich roses, chrysanthemums filled in with million star gyp or solidago and leatherleaf create a classic and memorable tribute.
Create a heart spray with white carnations or chrysanthemums filling out the heart-shaped floral foam. Craft or larger hobby stores usually carry the heart-shaped wet floral foam. Superstores with hobby sections may also carry them. Create the broken heart by adding a crooked line of blood red roses or carnations in the centre of the heart.
A basketful of white lilies, carnations and roses layered with million-star gyp and ferns create a memorable, peaceful tribute. The "A-frame" of the basket and the floral arrangement makes the flowers loom especially large and beautiful. White gladiolas stand especially tall in these arrangements.
Purchase a round wreath in wet floral foam, usually available at hobby stores or superstores with a hobby section. A colourful, bold tribute at any memorial is a wreath with mounds of full-leaf lemon leaf interspersed with royal blue delphinium, buttercup yellow daises and carnations and white chrysanthemums, showcasing bicolour red and pink roses. Add mounds of white million star gyp to highlight the beauty of all these colours.
A cross shape in wet floral foam can be purchased at craft or larger hobby stores. Because of the religious message of peace a cross symbolises, you may decorate it with white carnations, white roses, white chrysanthemums or other white flowers, atop a bed of greenery. Crosses decorated with white pink bi-roses also make a lovely tribute.
