Funeral Flower Delivery

A funeral flower delivery arrangement is sent to the family as an expression of sympathy and to offer comfort, peace and hope. Flowers add beauty to an otherwise somber atmosphere and provides a comforting diversion during the visitation. Sending flowers for funerals says "I'm thinking of you."

There are many varieties of flower arrangements that can be used: centerpieces, plants or even a small teacup with flowers. Some choose to buy funeral flowers designed with a small garden of green plants, accented with a blooming plant for color. Even if a few weeks have passed since the death, using a funeral flower florist to send flowers can be a comforting reminder that friends are still thinking of the family during their time of grief. In some cases, a fruit or gourmet basket is appropriate for families with out-of-town guests during this period. This type of gift does double-duty - it sends a message of sympathy and condolence, while helping to nurture the family and their guests.

While many of us buy funeral flowers to express sympathy, plants are also a good way to show lasting expression. In fact, plants combined with vibrant colors of flowers are a good choice for funeral flowers. An excellent way to express condolences and compassion, plants can be enjoyed for months to come after the service. Another good choice is chrysanthemums. Grown for more than 2,000 years in Chinese gardens, chrysanthemums are a symbol of fidelity and of the sun, providing a message of light and love during a difficult period.

When choosing to express condolences in a classical design, nothing is more elegant than a mix of all-white flowers. White flowers have long represented humility and reverence. A mix of white carnations, gladioli, larkspur and snapdragons designed in a traditional style inside a funeral basket may be a good choice if one prefers a funeral flower arrangement that can be used for the funeral service and also enjoyed in the home afterwards.

Another uplifting option is using a floral design that contains white carnations (which symbolizes beauty), larkspur (an open heart), and roses (enduring love). This simple, yet elegant design expresses deepest sympathy along with a message of hope and grace.

Keep in mind that sympathy flowers do not have to be dark and somber. You can arrange for a funeral flower delivery gift that reminds the family to celebrate the life of the deceased. A "Warm thoughts" funeral flower arrangement, filled with springtime colors of pink, yellow and lavender is a lovely reminder of hope and rebirth.
