“May the petals teach me the art of letting go.” —Xan Oku
Flowers symbolize rebirth and renewal. They naturally open and refresh the heart. As we think about the end of life in a positive way, we can remember flowers. In their lifespan, they go from tiny buds to bright blooms to fading petals. They travel back into the earth, then return the following Spring! The image of a simple flower helps us to recall this cycle of life that touches us all.
A flower urn from GetUrns, whether large or small, designed to be kept near always, or used in a ceremony for a few moments in biodegradable urn, can comfort us during the enormous difficulty of grief.
Like flowers, GetUrns’ flower cremation urns come in many colors and designs. Emerald, rose, silver, azure, and more, flower urns can be playful or abstract, traditional or modern. Roses, tulips, lilies, daisies, or the timeless image of a lotus, are all available for you to choose from.
You can select what best represents your beloved, thus giving you and your family a sense of peace. One popular option is to use a tealight cremation urn, combining the uplifting images of flowers with the calming light of a candle. This combines two powerful symbols of life and death – the flowers return and grace us again with their beauty, while the light of a candle recalls the light of our beloved’s soul.
