What is a Grave Blanket?

A grave blanket is a decoration typically made of evergreens and other natural materials, such as pine cones, berries, and holly, that is placed on a grave site during the winter months.

There are a few ways to fix a grave blanket to the ground, depending on the materials and design of the blanket and the rules and regulations of the cemetery where it will be placed.

One way to fix a grave blanket to the ground is to use a metal stand specifically designed for holding grave blankets. The blanket would be placed on top of the stand, which would then be inserted into the ground. These stands can be purchased from florists or online retailers that specialize in grave decorations.
