What is a Casket Spray?
Casket Sprays are floral arrangements designed to be place on top of the casket. There are 2 types of casket spray:
1. A Full-Couch Casket Spray or Lid Casket Spray. This casket sprays is the entire length of the coffin (casket).
2. Half-couch casket spray, or Foot Spray. This casket spray is shorter than the full-couch spray and is often used when the casket is half opened.
How to choose the right Casket Spray?
The casket spray is to honor the deceased and often families will use the deceased favorite flowers in the casket spray, or use flowers with a certain color scheme that was special to the deceased. For example, a male that worked outdoors such as farming or ranching, a spray with wheat in it would be appropriate, for someone who loved roses or who had a rose garden, roses would be appropriate.

Often the time around planning the funeral and immediately afterwards is such a busy time that it is nice to receive flowers a few weeks after, often this is the most difficult time for the deceased loved ones and it is comforting to know others are still thinking of them.
