Appropriate Flowers For A Funeral
In choosing appropriate flowers for a funeral there are some rule of thumbs to follow.
The white lily, or Arum lily is associated with Christian images of sorrow or bereavement. The ultimate appropriate funeral flower, this lily is also suitable for funerals in many other faiths.
Indeed, white is the colour of mourning in most Asian cultures.
For Christian funerals all colors tend to be used. For the traditionalist, a combination of red and white flowers continue to be appropriate for wreaths and funeral tributes.
Choose Type of Arrangement
Age of the deceased is another factor that should be taken into account when selecting appropriate flowers for a funeral. A funeral for an older person will usually require more traditional wreaths and arrangements.
Other options are sympathy bouquets and baskets, as well as floral hearts, sprays and sheaves.
Alternatively, you could try to reflect the personality or lifestyle of the deceased in the floral tribute. The florist's skillful hands can create anything from champagne bottles to football shirts at your request.
A further option is to present a bouquet made up of the late person's favorite flowers. See some beautiful funeral flower arrangements
No Flowers Please
It is occasionally the case that due to religious belief or personal preference a charitable contribution is requested instead of a floral tribute. Jewish custom is to make a donation to 'The Jewish National Fund' which plants a tree in Israel in the name of the deceased.
If you still want to express yourself in flowers, a funeral arrangement sent a day or two after the funeral or service to the bereaved family will be appreciated.
