Take home a floral arrangement
Too many flowers around the house can be overwhelming, but consider taking one or two bouquets home with you. Floral bouquets look beautiful placed around the home, adding colour and life. It’s often a lovely way to remember the person, particularly if a floral arrangement incorporates their favourite flower. Funeral flowers are also a comforting reminder that people care, and that you are not alone in your grief.
Plant them in your garden
You might want to plant a particularly beautiful flower, perhaps one that reminds you of your loved one in your garden, or in a place of some special significance to the two of you. That way you can create a living monument to that person.
Preserve the funeral flowers
If you wish to keep the flowers beyond a couple of weeks, you may wish to try pressing the flowers, and then creating a keepsake for you and other family members. Flower petals can be used to decorate bookmarks, picture frames, candles, jewellery boxes, and other trinkets.
