Funerals and Memorials

Releasing butterflies adds a unique and memorable touch to a funeral or memorial service.  The butterfly has long been symbolic of freedom, love and new life or the beginning of a new journey. Butterflies flying free can also represent the “setting free of the spirit” and releasing butterflies is a reflective, yet uplifting, experience.  Family members and friends may “send their love on the wings of a butterfly” as they each release their own individual butterfly ~ a very touching and personal experience.  Alternatively, a mass release of butterflies from one release box… open the lid and fill the sky with an amazing flutter of beautiful butterflies ~ such a unique, symbolic and personal way to commemorate the passing of a loved one… special memories that last forever.

At Butterflies for Occasions we specialise is offering our personal support and professional assistance when arranging butterflies for a funeral service. We happily cater for any number of butterflies and in any combination of release packaging as personally desired.

In appreciation of the fact there is limited notice involved with the planning of a funeral service we continually breed butterflies to fulfill orders on short notice. Although fulfilling such orders is always subject to the availability of butterflies ~ we recommend that you contact us with as much notice as possible to confirm availability.

“A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam, and for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world: but then it flies again. And though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it.”
