Flowers at the grave site bring comfort to those who have lost their loved one and also are a remembrance of the one who has died. They help to make a difficult situation more bearable and to recall happy memories rather than the sadness of the loss. Real flowers in the form of bouquets and wreaths are best for the day of the funeral and burial. Silk flowers are an option for year-round grave decoration.

Flower Bouquets

Real-flower bouquets at the grave site can be of roses, daisies, carnations, alstroemeria or mixed flowers. They can be any colour combination and in simple or complex arrangements. Most bouquets and floral arrangments at the grave site are at ground level. iFlorist recommends flowers which would reflect the taste and wishes of the deceased.

A memorial wreath is at the grave site standing or at ground level. One or two standing wreaths at the grave site bring the attractive flowers to eye-level. Wreaths of real flowers are beautiful for the day of the burial, made from a variety of flowers. Most wreaths are shaped in the form of a circle or heart. Scented wreaths can include the aroma of flowers, potpourri, herbs and spices.

Silk Flowers

High-quality silk flower arrangements can retain their beauty for up to two years in the weather. Silk flowers decorate the grave site all-year long and good quality ones are hard to distinguish from real flowers. Artificial wreaths, bouquets, bushes, sprays and hearts decorate the grave site.
