We strongly encourage patronizing local flower shops in the surrounding communities. The quality of their flower arrangements and timeliness of delivery make them an excellent choice.
We are pleased to recommend the following fine local florists:
258 Norfolk St.
Holliston, MA 01746
161 Hayden Rowe St.
Hopkinton, MA 01748
Advice regarding hanging flower sprays: Due to the higher rate of cremation, (with no cemetery for burial, and the restriction of other institutions where flowers are brought), we recommend that when ordering flowers, to consider what will happen to the order after visitation or services. Sprays are not accepted in many churches or nursing facilities where we donate many of the arrangements that are not taken or used. Sprays are almost never brought to the family’s home due to the size and need of a stand.
Depending on when delivery occurs, many sprays may not be displayed. Due to how sprays may be constructed, the florist takes care to keep flowers fresh and in water as long as possible, and when it is time for setup in the funeral home or place of worship, the water may pour or drip from the container for a an extended period of time. In order to keep stains from the floor, the pieces do not get displayed until the leaking is complete.
Please consider: Dish gardens, vases, baskets, plants, small trees, even fruit or vegetable plants, food arrangements for home, lamps, stuffed animals, etc. Items that may go home with a loved one’s family or friends often get extended joy from the well wishes of the item purchased.
On-Line Flower Retailers
If you prefer to purchase from an on-line flower retailer, we ask that you please note:
- Flower arrangements shipped in boxes will be provided to the family in those boxes at the end of visitation.
- Deliveries from online retailers may not appear to look as described and often arrive too late if ordered for the day of visitation. If you do order from them, we strongly recommend that you request delivery for the day PRIOR to visitation to ensure a timely arrival.
