Types Of Flowers.

Funeral Wreath-Nairobi

Funeral wreaths are the most common types of funeral flowers in Nairobi Kenya.We always customize them to fit your scheme.

Funeral Spray

Funeral sprays are a popular choice, and are a very versatile floral arrangement.  A funeral spray can be either single ended or double ended.  Funeral sprays are available in a wide range of designs, sizes and colors.

Standing Spray

A standing spray is a design that stands upright, typically supported on an easel or lent against the casket.  This kind of arrangement ensures the floral arrangement is easily visible during the service.

Funeral Flower Baskets & Posies

Baskets and posies are another popular choice.  A funeral flower basket is an easy way to ensure that flowers can be easily transported and moved around.  This can be especially useful if flowers may be moved from the funeral home, or church, to the graveside; or if the family wishes to take flowers home.  If you wish to have the family take the flowers home after the services, a floral basket is in order.  The arrangement is tastefully prepared and placed in a wicker basket for this purpose.

A posy is typically a round shaped floral arrangement, which means it can be viewed from every angle. Flowers hand tied are set in water and more suited to be sent to the mourner’s home.  The reason is that there is no guarantee that the flowers will remain upright on the trip to the cemetery.

Funeral Wreath

Funeral wreaths are what many people associate with floral funeral tributes. Funeral wreaths are typically shaped, often circular, but come in many shapes, designs and sizes.  . Wreath rings are lovely floral tributes to consider sending.  They consist of a mixture of flowers loosely set in a green wreath.

Funeral Cross

A funeral cross can be a popular choice, especially for a church service or to express personal sentiment.  Funeral crosses can be made in a variety of sizes and designs.

Heart-shaped Wreath

Funeral Flowers prepared in an oasis base last longer such as floral arrangements in the shape of a heart.  A heart-shaped wreath can be an extremely personal symbolic choice of floral arrangement, connoting love and compassion.

Letter or Name Tributes

Letter or name floral tributes are a very personalized form of funeral flowers.  They are often chosen by close family who wish to express their personal loss and feel the use of a name or term such as ‘Mom’ or ‘Grandma’ is the most befitting tribute.

Cushions and Pillow Tributes

The use of a symbolic cushion or pillow as a funeral arrangement helps to indicate a final resting place and connote peace and serenity.  Cushion and pillow tributes can be handcrafted in a range of sizes and colors. Pillows or cushions with your choice of flowers can be made up to be placed in the coffin. The name of the deceased can also be added to the pillow for personalization.

Casket Spray

Casket or Coffin sprays are large arrangements of flowers that are approximately 4 feet long and are elegantly draped on the casket.  They can be ordered in colors befitting a male or female as well as a general floral spray mixed with appropriate greens.

Memorial Arrangements

Arrangements of flowers that can either sit on the floor or a table top, suitable for the viewing, service or can be sent to the relatives’ home.

Fare Thee Well Nana.

Our final Tribute goes to our beloved friend and client, Nana Gichuru following a tragic Road Accident along the eastern Bypass-Nairobi. Nana was more than just a friend to us here. We were lucky to get to know and interact with her personally. I can still recall her bubbly character whenever we met in various occasions, doing different flowers. I vividly recall this heartwarming chat we had with her, during a friends wedding in Safari-Park Hotel Nairobi. She showed me different photos she had of her dream wedding flowers. She truly loved colours and was so good mixing them. She went ahead and pre-booked us to do her wedding flowers. Which unfortunately never came to be. May the Almighty give strength to her family during this difficult times.

“Nana Gichuru. You will always be in our hearts and minds. Love. The RED Petal Florists Family.
