For the funeral service
If you are a close family member or feel obligated to give flowers to his funeral, there are several flower gifts to choose from. The details are as follows. Some families require arrangements to be sent to the hospital or nursing home to cheer up patients there after the service is over. Order water or flower foam.
Coffin lid: These large and expensive arrangements are usually purchased by immediate family members and placed on top of a closed coffin. They are half or full.
Inner coffin: In the case of an open coffin funeral, this arrangement is placed on the inner lid of the coffin. Usually provided by family members.
These are large funeral arrangements assembled from the side. They are usually placed on the easel.
Crown: Also on the easel, these decorations can be seen at the funeral and can also be taken to the grave. Variations in the wreath may include an open or solid, or a bouquet on a floral foam base.
Extended friends and relatives may wish to send these arrangements to the service. If you wish to put flowers on a metal shelf, please order a vertical basket, or place a floor basket on the ground or on the stage.

Thoughts on what to wear and how to organize your bouquet
Sarah Raven published by BBC has a very good book called Grow Your Own Cut Flowers Worldwide, which may be useful. (Amazon is excellent at sourcing books from abroad.) Flowers are recommended, such as sweet peas, scabies and snapdragons, dahlias and zinnias, but you need to pay attention to annual plants and make sure that biennial plants do not enter because they will not Flower in time.
Lovely candy color, scabies lavender and zinnia pink lipsticks look great, you can even pop some freesias and roses bought by florists. However, if you can get this book, I believe it will help.
You can consider making a knotted wedding bouquet, where the flowers are kept on their natural stems without thread. These are very popular now. The beauty of them is that they can be transported in a small pot of water and then scooped out before the ceremony (be sure to bring something to clean the stems). If you decide to use wires for the stems, then make sure you have enough water. Spray them, then cover them with a cellophane tent and place them in a cool place.
You must condition the flowers cut from the garden well. After cooling down the night before, soak in cold water overnight before using. There are many ways of conditioning flowers, depending on whether they are soft stems, woody, hollow, etc. So I suggest you go to the library to find a book, because the success of your bouquet depends on its conditioning. Use flowers and leaves. Taste certain flowers the previous week to see how long they can be kept after cutting and conditioning. It is best to understand this before the important day.
Most florists use design books, which are usually provided by the relief organizations they belong to, such as Interflora, Teleflower, etc. This ensures that the customer knows exactly what they ordered, and the florist must use the design book/manual and send an exact copy. Relay organizations regularly test their members by sending them fake orders and checking their designs, flower quality and value. Gift flowers (bouquets, hand-tied bouquets, baskets, corsages, planting baskets, flower pots and flowers) function/wedding flowers; (pedestal, altar display, garland, bench end, center decoration, long and low Display, candle display) and then bridal flowers; (bride bouquet, bridesmaid bouquet, basket, garland, hoop, corsage, buttonhole) newborn flowers; (baby bed, ceramic container usually in the form of stroller and train, etc.) Full of flowers) Then, sadly, funeral flowers; (spray, rope wheel, squashed heart, cushion, pillow, cross, open garland, garland with base.)
I may have omitted Some, but as you can see, the range of items offered by the florist is very wide and should be able to produce for your customers. If you try to search for Interflora on the Internet, they will definitely have a lot of pictures and ideas to help you expand your project. Maybe its a white rose bud (without thorns), with a small blue or pink ribbon tied directly under the head of the rose.
This always looks special. You can do the same thing with gerbera or carnation. Put them in the water and distribute them immediately after the party. Or a small pot of pansy, wrapped in a paper towel. These will last longer and can be planted in the garden later.
Fresh tulips are great in wedding bouquets. If you assemble them into hand bundles, you can place the stems in water until you need to use them (make sure to wipe the ends dry), and they should be able to stand for several hours without water. Then you can prepare a small vase, perhaps on the cake table, where you can put the tulips for the rest of the day. This only applies to hand-tied corsages. If the flowers are very tight and fastened, they should perform well.—–I know that in the Netherlands (many of our flowers are from the UK) they seem to be the season of lilac blooms, Especially white varieties, so maybe your florist can ask a few questions. I have been looking for alternatives for you, and I can offer you the following suggestions; white and lavender mop-headed hydrangea (they will give you a lovely bunch)
Delphinium has some lovely lavender, Blue and white, used in small sprays, it looks a bit like lilac. I have some great artificial lilac stems in a vase at home, which are loved by many people. Maybe with some fresh leaves, maybe there are other kinds of flowers, this might be another option…so take a look and ask about silk lilac, but make sure it is really good. The distance you insert the flower stem depends on the size of the bouquet holder you choose to use. You should leave the stems as long as possible and dont let them jump out of the other side. One inch is the shortest. I strongly recommend that you try to buy some FloraLock. This is an adhesive with a nozzle, which is sprayed directly on the flower foam and around the stem after the arrangement is completed. But before pasting, make sure you fall in love with this arrangement! After the FloraLock has dried, you cannot make any changes to the arrangement. Besides, you dont need too much. Use it carefully until you get the hang of it, or you will let it drip from the handle of the bouquet holder. I dont know if FloraLock is available in any craft store; the flower shop may need to order it for you.
