Creating beautiful casket flowers
Sometimes flowers have very special places with in our lives.
The Sister who would buy a bunch of white Lilies every Friday for the last 20 years.
The Mother who had the most beautiful cottage garden that she was so proud of.
The Son who collected, grew and loved orchids.
The Father who just loved native flowers and could name every variety of Banksia and Protea.
Flowers can hold so much meaning and so many memories, and it’s in these instances that a generic, run of the mill casket arrangement just doesn’t seem to fit.
We love helping you create the farewell your loved one deserves. Each casket arrangement we make is special and custom made.
Located next to Woronora cemetery, White lady funerals and just over the rail bridge from Olsens Funerals we have over 30 years experience creating memorable casket flowers and funeral arrangements.

Sending sympathy flowers
Flowers are a comforting reminder that you are thinking of the family throughout the grieving process. It can, however, be difficult to know what to send and when to send it.
When should I send flowers for a sympathy?
Some people choose to send flowers to the home immediately upon hearing the news, some wait until the funeral service and others wait until a few weeks have past. There are no steadfast rules.
If sending flowers to the home it can be convenient for the bereaved to receive flowers in their own water source so that they do not need to worry about finding a vase. A vase or box arrangement are good options.
If sending flowers to a cremation service, keep in mind that the family will often take the flowers home with them. Some thing that is easy to transport like a bouquet or a box arrangement works well.
Flowers sent to a burial service are usually left at the cemetery. Something more formal like a wreath or a floral sheaf are good options.
A nice gesture is to send flowers to the family a week or two after the initial activity around organising the funeral has passed. It can be very comforting to the bereaved to let them know that you have not forgotten about them, or their loss. It is never too late to send flowers to express your sympathy.
Should I send bright or pastel colour flowers?
While many people choose to send more pastel, subdued arrangements, it is also common to send bright flowers, which celebrate the happiness and joy the deceased brought to their life. Bright colours can be especially fitting if the deceased had a bright and bubbly personality. Again, there are no steadfast rules and comes down to personal taste.
While many of us think of flowers to express sympathy, plants are a practical and lasting way to show support to grieving family members. Plants can be enjoyed for months and years after a funeral and can serve, as a remembrance to loved ones who have passed. Feel free to call us to discuss which flowering plants we can source for you.
