The flower shop I go to have plastic cones that you can stick in the ground.  I would assume most florists would have these, but I don’t really know.

I have always liked to leave a mini wreath style when I visit grave sites. A small bundle of long-stem white roses also looks very classy simply layed on the foot of the stone.

@MrsSl82be:  i leave flowers, real and fake at a gravesite all the time. The silk ones usually have a long stick where you can plant it into the ground. For real flowers I either plant them or leave them in a cup of water

Your florist should have a plastic container that you can buy for very little (I also believe I’ve seen them at Michaels).  If you’re using silks, I would recommed buying styrofoam as well; if you’re buying real flowers, I’d recommend buying oasis (soft styrofoam made to hold water).  The flowers will stay in place longer if you use styrofoam/oasis to anchor them/keep them hydrated.

@MrsSl82be:  Yep, you can get all of the things you need at Michaels or JoAnn’s Fabrics.  I know I’ve seen them at both places.

I was just in Michaels yesterday and the lady in front of me was buying one of those cones. I would say that is the best bet.
