Celebration of Life

Many families are opting for a celebration of life ceremony as an option to a more traditional funeral.  Often these ceremonies take place in alternative locations from the funeral home or church. They are sometimes held in restaurants, parks, pubs, sporting facilities or other venues that were a favorite destination of the deceased. While there is still the element of mourning, these celebrations are more festive and try to focus on the life and times of the departed.

All the positive aspects of the person’s life are celebrated. Things like unique talents, generosity towards others, exciting destinations they traveled to, and other noteworthy accomplishments are themes for the celebration.  The caring and compassionate Pugh’s Flowers team will help you with that celebration of life. Our festive and tasteful flowers will add so much more happiness to your event.


These services have been in existence for generations and are more of a solemn event. Typically, the service is held in a funeral home, church, crematorium or chapel. It can involve an open or closed casket. Open caskets are most common in the US and allows the attendees to say a final good-bye to the deceased. Often family or friends are asked to address others with a tribute to the life of the person.

Our professional floral designers at Pugh’s Flowers  will prepare the most stunning flower arrangement to add dignity and beauty to this respectful and solemn ceremony. We know the business and have assembled a team of talented, caring and passionate professionals. We take pride in our work and leave our customers completely delighted with their floral product purchases.

Reasons being there is no embalming of the body and less expensive caskets are used.

Cremation or Direct Cremation

In a Cremation there is most often a viewing as part of the funeral service prior to the actual cremation. Then with Direct Cremation, there is no viewing.
