Each arrangement is available for same-day delivery to the funeral home, church, residence, or office. Help celebrate the life of a friend or loved one and express yourself perfectly with a lovely funeral arrangement.
We offer a wide variety of arrangements to choose from, appropriate for every relationship to the deceased, including Standing Sprays, Flower Baskets, Vase Arrangements, Casket Sprays, Wreaths, Crosses and Hearts, and even Blooming and Green Plants. Whether you need a tribute for the funeral home, a memorial service or cremation ceremony, flowers are known to offer comfort and help with healing during the grieving process.
The color of the funeral flowers you select can also be very important. In many cultures, white is a traditional color of mourning and conveys peace and purity, which would explain the popularity of the white lily as an expression of sympathy. White mums are symbolic of death and lamentation in certain Asian cultures and European countries, while white carnations stand for pure love and innocence. And white roses are always an elegant choice, as they symbolize humility and reverence.
Red flowers express love, and can be used to honor the life of a close friend or beloved family member. Roses in any shade of red express undying love for the deceased, contrasted with red carnations which stand for admiration and respect. Any red flower can also be used to symbolize the courage and beauty of the deceased.
Pastel colors such as pink, purple and yellow are normally selected to memorialize women, while darker tones are typically selected for men as they lend a masculine touch to the arrangement, no matter what the season.
When a friend or loved one passes away, many people want to send funeral flowers as a symbol of their love and a show of heartfelt condolences to the family and other mourners at the service. The options for funeral flowers include: arrangements for the casket, standing arrangements such as floral crosses or wreaths, as well as smaller baskets or arrangements. However, etiquette dictates what type of arrangement is appropriate as not all funeral flowers should be sent by anyone.
Funeral Flower Etiquette at the Service
For the most part, flowers for the top or inside of the casket itself and large standing floral wreaths or sprays are generally sent only by the immediate family. The type of funeral flowers appropriate for friends or co-workers of the deceased are usually smaller standing sprays or flower baskets that can be displayed at the funeral service or at the home of the family.
Send Flowers to the Home of the Family
If you are not able to attend the funeral service, you can still send sympathy flowers to the family's home as all funeral flowers do not need to be at the service. The most common options for a sympathy gift to the home are a vase of beautiful flowers or a floral basket. Fruit baskets or gifts of gourmet food are also appreciated at the home of the family when they receive mourners.
