In an age of “in lieu of flowers” we shouldn’t forget the power of flowers for a grieving family.

With cremation and the trend of simplicity in funeral services the floral aspect is often overlooked.
Wreaths are an excellent choice for a ceremony where the cremation urn will be present or families that plan to spread the ashes. Flowers can soften a metal urn and add to the beauty of natural marble or wood.
