Funeral flowers are something we never look forward to buying, but the reality is they can do a lot to ease the suffering of the deceased's family. Some of the most beautiful flowers arrangements I've ever seen have been funeral arrangements, and you often hear people at funerals commenting on how beautiful the flowers are. Rather than a being a sunny distraction, I've always thought that funeral flowers are a celebration of the life of the deceased.

Types of Funeral Flowers

The most commonly ordered funeral flowers are usually funeral wreaths. Typically made in a circular shape with roses or other fragrant flowers, funeral wreaths are sold with display stands so they can be displayed at the funeral or service. Funeral wreaths are also available in the shape of a heart, which can be a lovely touch and put a smile on the faces of the family members.

Another option in funeral flowers is the flower spray. Sprays are made of cascading flowers and greens, and have a very vibrant, wild quality that can create a beautiful contrast at a funeral. Sprays are available on stands so they can be displayed against a wall, or you can purchase a large spray to be placed on the top of the casket.

If you are not part of the deceased's family and wish to bring or send flowers for the funeral, you can also choose a smaller flower arrangement, bouquet, or basket. Most florists have special designs for funeral flowers, and they will be able to assist you in making the right choice. Whatever your choice, bringing or sending flowers to the funeral will undoubtedly be deeply appreciated by the family and by everyone in attendance.
