How to buy flowers for a funeral | Sending sympathy flowers etiquette | Meanings of funeral & sympathy flowers

Sympathy flowers are a great way to show support to a family that is grieving the loss of a loved one.

Lily: This lovely flower usually blooms in summer, and is often interpreted as a symbol of renewal and rebirth.

Rose: This enormously popular flower has very different meanings associated with different colors. Like the lily, white roses tend to represent purity and innocence.

Carnation: The carnation is a symbol of love. Some people believe that the word “carnation” came from “incarnation,” the Latin word that refers to God in the flesh.

Hyacinth: The purple hyacinth is a famous symbol of sorrow and regret. For a funeral setting, this expression is undoubtedly appropriate.

Chrysanthemum: In America, this gorgeous flower has many meanings, used as an expression of support or an encouragement to “get well soon.”

Gladiolus: The gladiolus is a beautiful representation of strength and character. By giving a grieving family this flower, you permanently remind them what lovely people they are and encourage them to persevere on their grief journey.

Forget-Me-Not: The meaning of this flower shouldn’t be too difficult to decipher. An emblem of remembrance, the forget-me-not communicates this simple but essential message to a family: your loved one lives on in our memories.

Flowers for non-traditional services

Changing trends in how we commemorate deaths in this country has added some confusion about traditional funeral customs and funeral etiquette. Flowers have traditionally been sent to the funeral home for display during the viewing/visitation and funeral service. However, if no funeral service held, it does not mean that there should be no show of sympathy. In instances where there is no funeral service, experts recommend sending condolences to the homes of the bereaved.

Cremations: Urns and cremation boxes accentuated with appropriate floral tributes.

A small wreath or garland for these containers is suitable and incorporated into a larger beautiful arrangement. An array of coordinating baskets and sprays can also be placed around the container. When ashes are scattered on water, sympathy wreaths, loose flowers and flower petals are often tossed onto the waters surface.

Memorials: Places of significance, such as the podium where readings will be performed, a table displaying remembrances such as photos or special mementos and even a cemetery monument, can be adorned with flowers.

Depending on the particular focal area, garlands, sympathy arrangements in vases or baskets and sympathy sprays are all appropriate choices. Just as flowers add softness and warmth to the surroundings, live plants displayed around an area can create a peaceful garden setting. Dish gardens and plants sent to the homes of family members of the deceased. Chrysanthemums or flowering shrubs such as azaleas are also good choices.

Ceremonial placement: Tragic deaths memorialized near the site where it occurred. Trees, markers, fences or other objects in the area adorned with floral decorations, such as garlands, wreaths or bouquets. Often attendees will place individual stems of flowers like roses at the ceremonial location.

Too late for the funeral?

At one time or another, it will happen to the best of us. The funeral was today at 10 a.m., and you just heard about it. Do not despair. It is considered proper funeral etiquette to send flowers to family members of the deceased at their residences. In fact, it is appropriate to send flowers, plants and sympathy gifts up to a month after the funeral services. Some people prefer to send funeral flowers at a later date. Although the initial outpouring of compassion is a great comfort, eventually the chaos subsides, friends and relatives return home and reality sets in. At this point, many people feel lost and alone. Consider sending flowers or a plant with a personalized sympathy card that reads I’m here if you need me.” The bereaved will know you are still thinking of them and they can count on your support.

Make mine stand out, please.

To make your funeral flowers particularly unique, ask our Funeral Flower Shop to create an arrangement that reflects an aspect of the deceased’s personality. A rustic basket of wildflowers incorporating branches and natural materials is a perfect choice to honor someone who loved the outdoors. You could request that our Funeral Flower Shop use the deceased’s favorite flowers or colors or a flower with significance. Be prepared to give our Funeral Flower Shop a few hints about the person you want to memorialize. Highly-personalized sympathy tributes might even include a sheaf of wheat in an arrangement for a farmer or a ball of yarn and knitting needles for someone who liked to knit. Toys used for adults and children alike. For instance, a semi-truck could be added to flowers for a truckers funeral or a teddy bear for a child’s service. You are limited only by your imagination. Almost anything can be incorporated into a funeral floral arrangement. Whatever you do, the family is sure to notice your effort and appreciate it.

Remember to shop local!
