Understanding Funeral Flower Arrangements


With the death of a close friend or a relative it is usually appropriate to send flowers to honor their death and to recognize the living that will attend the funeral. Over the years many types of funeral flower arrangements have evolved for this purpose.

All can be ordered from florists online or over the telephone from 1800flowers or teleflora for delivery to the funeral home or other location where the funeral will take place. Etiquette dictates that a short message accompany the flowers when they are delivered and the florist can easily arrange for this to happen.

Funeral flower arrangements can come in many shapes and styles. The most obvious is the casket spray. It is usually designed to cover half of the casket and can be made using a variety of flowers. The casket spray is often the most prominent arrangement at the funeral as all eyes are directed toward the casket.

If a religions symbol such as a cross is to be included in the spray, make certain that it is the appropriate symbol for the deceased. If in doubt, check with the funeral home before ordering any funeral flower arrangements with a religious symbol.

Other flower arrangements that can be sent include wreaths, bouquets, baskets, and flower vases. The wreaths are usually mounted on tripods and displayed around the casket. Bouquets are sometimes displayed on the corners of the casket or even inside the casket. Vases and baskets can be placed on the floor around the casket. All can easily be transported from the services to the grave site if this is the wish of the surviving family.

In some cases custom flower arrangements can be ordered from the florist. In other cases only standard arrangements are available for order. This information is usually available on their website. If a custom arrangement is desired it is recommended that the florist be contacted directly so their will be a complete understanding of what is desired.

For most people buying funeral flowers does not occur often enough to be comfortable with the process. Online shopping can expedite that process and the buyer can see photo representation of what the arrangements will look like. Before you order online, make sure that the florist can get the flowers there on time and in good shape.
