Some events in life are more difficult and emotional than others. When it is time to say goodbye to a loved one, it can be challenging to determine exactly which flowers are appropriate to send to the funeral service. The team at Griffin’s Floral Design has provided the florals for many of your milestones, and this occasion is no different. We are happy to help you navigate the types of arrangements available,
Which Flowers are Best? Gladioli are considered the customary flowers for funeral services, as they are called the “flower of remembrance”. They carry the additional meaning of loyalty, strength of character and integrity. Gladioli are graceful, elongated stems of flowers which look like a sword, which is how they got their name (the sword of the gladiator). They occur in a wide variety of colors and add striking drama to any arrangement. Although gladioli have traditional meaning, however, roses, carnations and lilies are also very popular options when ordering custom funeral flowers.
As a friend or extended family member, you may wish to have a standing spray delivered to the funeral home. These formal arrangements stand on easels, and can also take the form of a cross, a wreath, or a custom design. A custom tribute may be patriotic, represent a favorite sport or sports team, or perhaps pay homage to a special group they loved being a part of.
If you are looking to send flowers directly to the family residence, consider beautiful bouquets, baskets of funeral flowers, or a long-lasting green plant. Flowers can be sent to the residence at any time; in fact, sending flowers again after a few months will assure the family that they have not been forgotten.
