Celebrate a Life Well-Lived With These 5 Non-Traditional Funeral Flowers, Bristol, Connecticut

Choosing funeral flowers can be overwhelming. While you have to be sensitive to the occasion, you want to select blooms worthy of celebrating a life. Many people go the safe route and purchase flowers that are traditional for funerals, such as lilies, roses, carnations, and chrysanthemums—but what if you decided to display a different collection of blossoms?

Dunn Funeral Home of Bristol, CT, has conducted a plethora of services over the past several years. In the process, they have seen a variety of flower displays, and they encourage clients to branch out and select blooms that reflect the uniqueness of their late loved one. Here are their top five recommendations.

5 Non-Traditional Funeral Flowers

Bird of Paradise

This exotic flower is best suited for those who were known for their vibrant personality and love of travel. Combine it with orchids and bromeliads and you’ll have a beautiful, dynamic bouquet for your adventurous loved one.

This flower tends to make people look twice, which makes it an ideal choice for individuals who had a show-stopping personality and liked making a statement. Integrate them with several other exotic flowers—such as anthuriums and birds of paradise—and you’ve got a spectacular arrangement that illustrates a one-of-a-kind lifestyle.

Sweet Peas

These delicate flowers are best for those who had a sweet personality and love of nature. Mix them with a selection of hyacinths and lilacs and you’ll have a charming bouquet that portrays a selfless way of life.


Tall and stately in appearance, these blooms present one of the purest blues in nature. They perfectly suit those who lived for fashion or delighted in being the center of attention. While you could add a collection of lilies and hydrangeas, this funeral flower can easily stand on its own and represent your loved one.
