With a variety of different kinds of flowers that can be sent, we have put together a short guide to provide helpful information.

Standing Sprays

Standing sprays should be delivered to the funeral home and are often formal and larger than standard floral arrangements. They are dedicated to the deceased serving as a sign of respect for the one who passed away. Standing sprays are also a good choice if you are unsure of how the setup will be, as they are placed on an easel, which can easily be moved if needed. It is tradition that standing sprays are ordered and sent by immediate and extended family members of the deceased.

Funeral Floral Bouquets

Funeral floral bouquets should be delivered to the home of a family member or friend of the deceased. Usually these are small to medium sized bouquets, which can be placed on end tables or used as centerpieces. And while white flowers are typically sent, colorful flowers that are elegantly arranged, may be sent to symbolize the celebration of the life the deceased had. Funeral floral bouquets are customarily sent by business associates, co-workers, friends, and acquaintances of the deceased.

Funeral Gift Baskets

Funeral gift baskets are a great and useful alternative to sending floral arrangements. When going through the loss of a loved one, eating, let along preparing meals, may be a hard task. It is important, however, to remember any allergies or dietary restrictions prior to sending a gift basket, and for that reason fruit is generally a safe way to go. These can be sent by just about everyone from family to friends to neighbors to co-workers.
