Pay tribute to the deceased and send your condolences to the family with flowers. Flower arrangements convey your concern, and red and white bouquets could be the perfect color combination to let a bereaved family know you are thinking about them. Funerals tend to be mournful and solemn, but flowers interject important reminders about the beauty of life with their heady fragrances and bold colors.
Flowers have meaning, enabling you to send a heartfelt message to a family who has recently lost a loved one. Many flowers are traditional funeral flowers due to their size, color, and symbolism. Elegant roses can create a classic floral arrangement. An especially poignant funeral arrangement might contain just one rose as a symbol of undying love. Floral arrangements for a funeral also traditionally include lilies due to the impressive size of these blossoms. Lilies can communicate a message of innocence, sympathy, and purity. Chrysanthemums have a strong association with funerals, especially in Europe and Asia. Some countries reserve mums for use in funeral floral arrangements only because they symbolize death. Elsewhere, white mums are symbols of grief. Orchids can also be an ideal plant for sending a message of love and sympathy to a grieving family because they represent love and devotion.
As you choose flowers, consider flower colors in conjunction with the types of flowers you select. In red and white bouquets, red roses symbolize love and respect and white roses symbolize reverence and purity. The darkest crimson roses represent deep sorrow. White lilies can add a message of purity and innocence to an arrangement, and white chrysanthemums symbolize truth.
The red and white flowers you send can go to the family at their home or office, or they can arrive at the funeral home or the house of worship for the service. The destination of the flowers will dictate the type of arrangement you choose. Generally, flowers arriving at the funeral home or house of worship will be large and more formal arrangements designed to coordinate with the service and any other funeral displays, such as photographs. Appropriate arrangements could be a standing wreath, a standing basket, or a large floor vase. Flowers sent to the family’s home or an office are smaller and less formal arrangements. A family may display a small or mid-sized basket or vase of flowers on a counter or as a table centerpiece.
