Flowers are a beautiful part of our lives, and a bouquet or arrangement can comfort us during the painful time when we lose a loved one. Flowers celebrate life and vitality, so it’s only appropriate that they are part of the servicers where we say goodbye to friends, loved ones, and acquaintances. Let Griffin’s Floral Design help you choose beautiful flowers for sympathy and remembrance.
Traditional Sympathy Flowers for Funeral Services
One of the most common flowers you’ll see at funeral services is the lily, and you’ll often see them in white. Lilies can symbolize a variety of feelings from passion to modesty and purity of heart. As a symbol of modesty and reserve, white lilies are a graceful and idyllic addition to a funeral service.
White flowers of almost any type are a common feature at services, and it’s appropriate to consider a traditional spray of white flowers when you’ve lost a loved one. An arrangement of white roses and flowers in peaceful colors like ivory and light yellow is a beautiful way to say goodbye to a loved one.
Flowers are a universally welcomed feature of funeral services, and they’re also an appropriate gift after the funeral. If you’re not able to attend the services, your friend or family will appreciate a simple basket of beautiful carnations, even if it arrives a month after the funeral. Your flowers will be a welcome sight during a friend’s time of mourning.
Choosing an Arrangement Type for Remembrance
During the grieving process, you may take part in a funeral, a wake, or other services to remember a loved one or family member, and there are a variety of traditional floral designs associated with each occasion. For example, a casket spray is an important part of the funeral service, and an arrangement of tulips and roses is a serene addition to the service.
In addition to classic white flowers, you may also consider arrangements in vivid hues, especially in the favorite colors of the deceased. Perhaps he or she was a fan of sunsets, so a casket spray of yellow gladiolas might help everyone say farewell in a respectful yet joyful manner.
Attending funerals and saying goodbye to loved ones, friends, and relatives are difficult events, and flowers can help everyone remember and honor the departed. Beautiful and elegant, sympathy flowers can help you experience peace and serenity during a difficult time.
