Memorial Park

Flowers and Decorations

“Touching people with flowers” is one of the most special things we do at Sunset Memorial Park. Our dedicated team of horticulturists and grounds crew use flowers and plants in the landscape to bring healing and comfort to everyone who visits.



Flower Regulations
If you honor your loved one by leaving flowers when you visit, please help us maintain the beauty of the park by following these guidelines:

  • Cut flowers are permitted at any time.
  • Potted plants or baskets are permitted for special occasions, such as Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays and anniversary. These will be removed after five days.
  • For Memorial Day, potted plants and artificial flowers are permitted one week before the holiday and will be removed one week after. Winter wreaths and blankets are permitted November 1 – March 1.
  • No artificial flowers, wreaths, shepherd hooks or statuary are permitted March 1 – November 1, during mowing season.


One Year Flower Program
Did you know that our horticulturalists handcraft beautiful grave and mausoleum arrangements to help you honor your loved one throughout the year? Arrangements are placed four times a year: Easter, Memorial Day, winter and a special date of your choosing, such as a birthday or anniversary. Call (217) 442-9241 for pricing and information.


Grave Blankets
Every year, we handcraft beautiful evergreen grave blankets. We hope we can help bring you comfort and healing during the winter months by honoring your loved one with a special grave or mausoleum tribute. You can purchase one from us each year, or you can place a standing order. Your loved one’s blanket will be among the first to be placed in November. We’ll place the blanket automatically and invoice you after.


Contemporary Design 
In 2015, we introduced a contemporary grave blanket design in addition to our traditional design. Our new design includes a bright, lime green bow and red shimmering accents. Ask about the new design when you place your grave blanket order with us in the fall.
