The act of scattering flower petals at a funeral or memorial service is a lovely way to say goodbye. The traditional gesture of dropping soil onto the coffin holds meanings in many faiths. It is a significant way for us all to connect to the act of burial. However, many people prefer to scatter flower petals as a gentler alternative.
Real flower petals float lightly. Therefore memorial petals do not make a sound when they land on the coffin. This can make the experience a little easier. You also have the option to add colour to the moment, which can be very meaningful and emotive.
Alternatively, memorial petals provide a way to pay tribute to your loved one. You can release them to the wind at a burial at sea or when scattering ashes. In addition, you can simply throw them high in the sky together in celebration of a life well lived. They can help us to let go and honour the person we have lost.
Most importantly, our Funeral and Memorial Petals are all 100% natural and biodegradable. That is to say, they will simply fade away like blossom, and not leave behind any litter.
You can, of course, choose any of the petal products or bespoke mixes from across our website. But we have put together these best options especially for funerals, memorials, and services of remembrance.
