Laying someone to rest is a somber event, and while words often fall short, expressions through flowers can often communicate the depth of our emotions. Funerals & Sympathy flowers have been a timeless tradition, bearing significant meanings and helping individuals convey sentiments during times of grief. Tooka Florist, based in North Vancouver, appreciates the significance behind these choices and offers a curated collection tailored for these sensitive moments.
A Brief History of Funeral Flowers
The tradition of sending flowers during mourning dates back centuries. These arrangements symbolized the fleeting nature of life, commemorating the beauty and fragility of our existence. Over time, specific flowers have come to represent certain sentiments, from roses depicting enduring love to lilies symbolizing the restored innocence of the soul. Whether you’re selecting from our rose collection or the classic sympathy & funeral collection, it's essential to understand the message you’re sending.
