Artificial Flower Wreaths by Graveside Flowers
History of the Wreath – Wreaths have been around since about a thousand years before the birth of Christ. The wreath has a long history and many religious associations. Originally, the Greeks wore wreaths on their heads to symbolize social importance or victory. The winners of the early Olympic games wore laurel wreaths on their heads. Some theorize that they would hang them on their wall as a keepsake when they were done wearing them and that this is where the custom of hanging a wreath originated. Eventually, that practice moved to hanging them on the front door as a welcome to guests. Today, beautiful wreaths are decorated for all of the different seasons.
Symbol of Immortality - At Christmas, the wreath is a Christian symbol of immortality representing Jesus’ triumph over death. The spherical shape implies no beginning and no end. This connection with immortality has naturally made wreaths popular for funeral and graveside decoration. These circular floral arrangements symbolize the cyclical nature of life and death and serve as an elegant tribute to your loved one.
