Our team at The Flower Bucket is here to help in any way during a challenging time.

Feel free to stop by in person to see exactly what flowers and colors we have at the time and our lovely designers will work one on one with you to ensure we make your vision come to life.
A few guidelines for sending flowers for the service:
If you'd like us to deliver flowers to the funeral home or the church, please be sure to address the order to the deceased persons name. The funeral home or church will need that information so that they can properly display the flowers or plants during the correct service. If you'd like to address a family member specifically to make sure they get the flowers or plant after the services, address your card message to their name in the card message section of the check out process.
If you're sending something to the graveside, please include as much information as possible about the grave location. Many cemeteries are not fully staffed at all times, so we will need plot location in order to deliver accurately.
Flowers and plants will be delivered either on the day of the visitation or service or the day before if it's an early morning service. If your order is placed for delivery two or three days ahead of the service, we cannot deliver them on that requested day. Due to the fresh aspect of cut flowers, we need to deliver closer to the service day and time to ensure that they look their best for services. Most funeral homes do not provide space for flower and plant deliveries until the day of the service.
Be sure to sign your card message with first and last name as the recipient will not have access to your sender information. We often hear from recipients calling for more information on who sent something to them so that they can properly thank them. You may even include an address after your first and last name in the signature so they have it all together.
Ordering from out of state? No worries, our friendly customer service team will be in contact with the funeral home to verify all service times and locations to ensure the arrangement is delivered in a mannerly fashion. All we ask from you is the name of the deceased, the card message you’d like to include, and what arrangement you were interested in sending. We’ll even email you a confirmation email once it’s been delivered. That way you can have the ease of mind that the family in fact received the flowers or plant.
Our thoughtful designers put extra love and care into making standing sprays of all shapes and sizes. Some of our personal favorites to make are our heart or circle wreaths. These specially shaped wreaths allow the flowers and colors to really make a statement. You can find all of our spray and wreath options on our website under the “Sympathy” tab and the "Funeral Standing Sprays" option. If you’re looking for specific colors let us know and we will do our best to accommodate all special requests. We’ve made some wreaths look like soccer balls, baseballs, softballs, etc. You name it, we’ll figure out a way to get it done! Take a look at some of our beautiful designs by following this link.
Looking for something extra to add to your spray or wreath? We offer a variety of colors for our sympathy banners that are completely customizable up to three words. We also offer bows of all colors and sizes that we will gladly include in any arrangement, plant or spray. A handwritten greeting card is yet another way to truly express your sympathy from afar and add a personalized touch.
Our trustworthy delivery drivers take extra caution when delivering our standing sprays that can be quite heavy. We load them up in the delivery van flat on their back away from any other arrangements that might damage the flowers or integrity of the spray. Most established funeral homes will have a cooler room specifically for flower arrangements to ensure the quality stays fresh for the services. We’ll personally deliver to this room and sign off on the sheet the funeral home has up front that way they’re aware what florist dropped it off and what services it’s for. We like to go the extra mile for our customers to relieve any stress or worry about funeral flower delivery.
