Tribute Types

Coffin Tops or Casket Sprays are usually selected by immediate family members. This arrangement can be made in various lengths up to full coffin size. Tribute sprays can be single ended to give a tear drop shape or a double ended spray gives a more symmetrical almost diamond shape.

Wreaths are a circular shape that symbolises eternal life.
Wreath styles can be either traditional or contemporary and are available in various sizes and styles. 

Posies are round in shape and slightly domed so that the flowers and foliage are seen to their best advantage. Posies are available in various sizes.

Sheafs offer a more informal tribute to consider, simply finished perhaps with raffia or ribbon for a more natural look. 

Hearts are often chosen to symbolise the love felt by immediate family or the closely bereaved.

Baskets are another less formal floral tribute you may wish to consider. A cottage garden style arrangement is a beautiful way to say goodbye.

Letter/name tributes are often chosen as a centrepiece by close family members.

Cushions and Pillows are symbolic of comfort in the last resting place and can be made in a variety of styles and shapes.
