At The Potted Plant, we take great pride and care in making grave blankets for your loved ones. Each grave blanket is made by hand using only the freshest evergreen boughs of silver fir, noble fir, frasier fir, and western cedar decorated with a mixed green center piece with pine cones and berries. While we feel this is a beautiful blanket in itself, we can customize a blanket for your loved one.
What is a grave blanket?
A grave blanket is a floral display consisting of woven evergreen boughs that covers an entire grave ( or a grave pillow which is placed at the base of the headstone) These displays are popular in northern climates, and they are often placed on graves before the first snow as a symbolic way of keeping deceased loved ones warm. No one truly knows how the tradition started, but the belief is the tradition was brought over from the Scandanvians that settled in the upper midwest.
We have 2 standard sizes available:
2' x 4' (this is the size that is approved for placement at Jefferson Baracks)
3' x 6' This is a full length blanket for a single grave or can be placed at the base of a double headsto
