Quick Guide to Funeral Flower Arrangements, Hamden, Connecticut

When someone passes away, a flower arrangement serves as a gentle and sympathetic way to show the family of the deceased how much you care. If you aren’t sure what blooms are appropriate for a funeral, Devine Orchid Florist in Hamden, CT, is happy to lend their expertise.

Some colors are seen as being appropriate for a funeral based on the virtues they symbolize. Knowing what each color means and aligning that sentiment with your relationship to the deceased will aid in your decision. Popular hues for a funeral include:

  • Blue: Peace and serenity
  • White: Humility and reverence
  • Yellow: Friendship

As for the type of flower, you can also make a selection with your loved one in mind. While lilies symbolize purity and virtue, roses signify love. Carnations, depending on the color, can represent anything from a mother’s love and admiration to religious reverence.funeral flowers

In the end, any flowers will work as long as the arrangement is tasteful and the size of the creation is appropriate for the location. If you plan to send it directly to the funeral home, a larger flower arrangement will suffice. Arrangements sent to the family’s home should be smaller in size. While you may send flowers as soon as you have heard the news of someone’s passing, check that there are no religious, cultural, or other restrictions barring your gesture.

For flower arrangements to suit all of life’s events, trust Devine Orchid Florist in Hamden. Their artful skill and attention to detail ensure each arrangement is tailored to the needs and preferences of the recipient. Besides flower arrangements, this trusted florist offers fruit baskets, a gift shop, and free delivery for Hamden, North Haven, and New Haven.
