The circular shape of a wreath is symbolic of continuing life and love.
Flowers are sent to the Funeral Home or Church for the funeral service. There are many floral arrangements to choose for a funeral. These may include decorated hearts, crosses, standing sprays, and wreaths.
Long ago, a wreath was placed on the front door of the home of a deceased person as a sign of mourning. Today, wreaths are mounted on a wire easel and sent to the funeral service. There are many ways to decorate a wreath. A wreath can be totally covered with greenery and flowers, or partially wrapped with ribbon and an arrangement on the top or side of the wreath.
For this wreath, I chose a grapevine wreath. This wreath was placed on a 48” easel. The design was placed on the side instead of totally covering the wreath. This is arranged in a caged block of wet floral foam wired to the wreath. I chose red roses, Stargazer lilies, and peppermint miniature carnations. The greenery used is leatherleaf. Red ribbon is used for the bow to highlight the red roses.
