What's This?

There is nothing more devastating than losing someone you love. People can, however, find a small source of comfort by visiting their grave, talking to them, and leaving flowers. In this post, we are going to look at the benefits associated with choosing long lasting grave flowers.

One of the main benefits associated with artificial flowers for graves is the fact that you are never going to be limited in your selection of flowers. If you purchase fresh blooms, you would only have the option of flowers that are in season at that moment in time. If you want to buy your loved one’s favorite flowers, you will have no trouble doing so when going for artificial blooms, yet there could be restrictions if you buy at a fresh florist. 

Artificial flowers last for a long time; their quality and their beauty simply remain intact. Companies like BSF are available for assistance with the costs, if you need it. Therefore, you can be sure that the person’s grave is always going to be beautifully adorned. There will never be a moment when it is absent of any decoration or loving tributes. Artificial blooms do not require any upkeep either, and they are resistant to the impact of the weather.

You can place them on someone’s grave and they will look beautiful the next time you visit. Finally, you have an expansive selection of creative and unique designs to find a really special and touching floral arrangement. 

Artificial Wreaths For Graves 

From flower baskets to standalone flowers, there are many options to choose from when buying flowers for someone’s grave. Artificial wreaths are very popular, and definitely something worth considering. Read on to discover everything you need to know about this type of floral tribute.

This is displayed aptly by the circle design; a wreath has no end and no beginning. Therefore, a wreath is a symbol of the person that has passed away still living on in our memories and in eternity with God. No matter how you see it, the message of eternal life is a touching one. 

When buying a wreath made of artificial flowers, you have the option of laying it on the ground, or you can easily fix it to the headstone of your loved one. If you take a look on the Internet, you will also see that you have an abundance of options to choose from when buying artificial flowers for graves. In regards to wreaths, in particular, the artificial variety include an array of creative and innovative designs, ensuring you can find something that is truly special.

The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.

Isaiah 40:8 (NLT)

I buried my youngest son over 10 years ago. To this day, beautiful flowers adorn “his place” – it is hard to say grave and son in the same sentence.

The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.

Psalm 103:15-16 (NIV)

Yet we remember our loved ones.  What an honor to share beautiful flowers as a memorial to love, for love is of God. What a gift.

  1. It was the second anniversary of my fathers death last week, we aren’t able to leave artificial flowers at the crematorium as he only has a commemorative plague and the ashes are interned in a meadow. The only time I’ve been to wear my fathers ashes are has been when I’ve attended funerals there since he died. I take a couple of flowers from the wreath I’ve left and place them in the pot for my father, his 2 brothers and my grandparents. As there is no one left on that side of the family other than my mother I doubt I will visit again until she passes. #abitofeverything

  2. Susan, I cannot imagine how difficult it would be to lose a child. You do a wonderful job of using this loss for the glory of God. Thank you for that. You are touching many hearts…

  3. Susan, I keep putting beautiful, handmade artificial flower arrangements on my mother and father-in-law’s graves, and someone keeps taking them! :-0 The people at Hobby Lobby know me by name… “Oh, you’re back for more flowers?” Yes. It’s me again. LOL I love to honor their memory like this, but it’s getting a little frustrating. I hope someone is enjoying my arrangements.


    Thanks for linking up at InstaEncouragements!

  4. When I was younger, I hated graves and graveyards. But as an adult, I find it to be a helpful point of contact. Unfortunately, most of my loved one’s who have passed away are buried far away and I rarely get to visit.
    These are very helpful suggestions.

  5. Thanks for sharing this post about flowers on gravesites. It’s not something generally talked about but it’s a real-life reality for many of us, myself included. I like to leave fresh flowers on my daughter’s grave each year on her birth/death date, then artificial flowers the remainder of the year. I remember how special it would be to find that someone else had left flowers on her grave as well.

  6. Susan,

    My mother died almost three years ago and I have yet to visit her. When I do, I will remember your recommendations. I never thought about artificial flowers, however, it is the best idea because of all the reasons you shared. The wreath speaks to me because of the circular design that represents no end and no beginning. Powerful! Hugs to you as you remember your son.

  7. Susan, my heart goes out to you over the loss of your son. Just a few days ago I was talking to a mum for whom it has been 9 and a half years, and the wound is still tender. Thank you for putting your grief to work in the service of so many others.
