Rose petals for funerals and services of remembrance
Our totally natural rose petals are ideal for scattering at a graveside, with the ashes of a loved one, or at a memorial event.
Most importantly, these rose petals are 100% biodegradable. They are freeze dried, which helps preserve their beautiful natural colour and shape. That is to say, there is no need to worry about them wilting or looking less than fresh.
It is customary to drop soil onto the coffin in many faiths. This meaningful act helps us to connect to the act of burial. But scattering flower petals is a much softer alternative. Real rose petals float delicately, and so they do not make a sound when they land on the coffin. Consequently, this is a much gentler experience.
If you wish, you also have the option to add colour to the moment.
For example, using the favourite colour of the deceased can be very expressive and poignant. Using rose petals for funerals can be an incredibly symbolic gesture that helps celebrate the life of your loved one.
We would recommend that you place the rose petals in a basket or box or bowl that can be passed around the mourners. Alternatively, you can buy a number of individual packages – bags, sachets or envelopes. These can, for instance, be handed out at the start or the service or placed one on each seat.
