Traditionally circular in shape and created to allow the arrangement as a whole to be displayed perfectly from all angles, usually domed and with either an overall symmetrical design or random with a variety of flowers used. Colours and flowers of your choice and in a range of sizes. With the circular shape being symbolic in the belief of eternal life and life everlasting. Funeral posies are created on a base and built up into a domed shape in the flowers and colours of your choice. Considered a more delicate tribute than the bigger, similar funeral wreath or coffin and casket sprays can often be the tribute of choice for younger children and even extended family and more distant relatives. Some florists can offer ribbons depicting lettering of your choosing to be placed across the posy saying such things as “great grandad” “best teacher” etc. The resourceful posy allows pretty much any flower variety to be used in creating the perfect funeral posy for your loved one. Tastefully arranged in floral foam or florist's oasis will ensure that the posy will have extra longevity to a wreath tribute in that the flowers can be kept moist by adding water to the foam as needed. This is also useful if the posy is to be placed on a grave when water will keep the flowers fresher for longer. Posies are also a popular memorial decoration ordered to be placed on graves on anniversaries and birthdays etc. The versatility of the posy means that it can be created to suit most budgets and can be a beautiful personalised floral tribute in dedication to the memory of your dearest and recently departed.
