Funeral Flower Etiquette FAQ

What Flower Arrangement Is Best?

There are many different options to express your sympathy for friends and loved ones during this difficult time. Popular choices include funeral standing sprays, wreaths, and flower baskets. These options are ideal as they are portable and can be easily transported from the funeral home or cemetery back to the family’s home.

Which Flowers Should You Choose?

funeral flowersWhen deciding on funeral flowers, consider choosing the favorite flowers of the deceased loved one, if you knew them well. Otherwise, flower arrangements that include white lilies, carnations, or chrysanthemums are typically appropriate for most ceremonies.

Can You Send Flowers After The Ceremony?

If you hear about the loss after the funeral, but would still like to express your sympathy, you are welcome to send a small bouquet and condolence card to the home of the family. This gesture expresses your remorse and shows support for the family during this difficult time.

Should You Include a Card?

If you can find the words to express how you feel, a heartfelt letter is always appreciated and respected by the grieving family. However, if you don’t know just what to say, you can still include a card in the funeral flowers with your name hat reads “My Deepest Condolences” or “With Love and Sympathy.”
