Flowers are a respectful, thoughtful way of sending your condolences after a friend or loved-one has passed-away.
Your choice of tribute can be elaborate or simple, a personal tribute, or simply a token of respect. With that in mind, choosing the right flower and arrangement is worth a moment of careful consideration.
Choosing the right flowers
Regardless of season and budget, your choice of flower type is important. If you are planning a funeral or memorial service for a loved one, add a personal touch by incorporating their favourite blooms.
Although almost any flowers are appropriate, some popular choices include:
- Orchids – Orchids represent faith, elegance, and beauty, making them a popular choice for funerals and gifts. When presented at a funeral, they’re a symbol of everlasting love for those who have passed. Potted orchids make an ideal gift, as they are low maintenance.
- Roses – As an extremely popular, universally recognised flower, roses have been grown and gifted for centuries. They are available in a wide variety of colours, with each colour implying a different meaning.
- Lilies – Commonly found in shades of white, yellow, pink, red, and orange, lilies are a popular flower. They are associated with femininity, purity, and innocence.
