I work in the funeral industry. For years I find it a shame that after a funeral there is only one place these flowers go. The garbage. I always believe in the motto one man's garbage is antoher man's treasure. Are all dried flowers, grown, or are they recycled? I would love to come up with an idea to somehow re-use these flowers. Do people who dry flowers or make potpourri buy such things? Any ideas?

When a good friend of mine died, I asked for
some of the flowers that had been sent for her
funeral. I dried them and made small
bouquets for her family members, as
remembrances of her. I don't know ifanyone
would want to buy the flowers, but I do know
that the dried bouquets I made were

As Carrie has done, I've also preserved and crafted with flowers from loved one's funerals. As far as creating some sort of cottage-business out of crafting with discarded "funeral" flowers...I see no reason why this wouldn't be perfectly acceptable. Not to sound arbitrary, or anything...but, no one would really know where the flowers came from and, besides, it's a terrible waste of beautiful flowers just to have them get tossed. On a purely "metaphysical" level: even though you (or the person purchasing your craft) may not have known the deceased, I think it's a wonderful way for their "memory" to live on even amongst people that never even knew them! :)

Another possible use...

donate them to a senior citizen home. I am sure that you would put many smiles on a lot of faces.
