A funeral is undoubtedly a sad affair, although it’s also the opportunity to show your respect and love for the deceased person before you say that final farewell.
One of the best ways to show that respect is with one of the many funeral flower displays available, and flowers often provide a great deal of comfort to those who were closest to the person who died.
However, choosing the right flowers is essential, as not all flowers are appropriate for this somber occasion. Today’s silk flowers are not dull or cheap looking as you might think; they look beautiful and one of the significant advantages of silk flowers is that they can be kept for years as a reminder of a sad but meaningful occasion.
Some flowers are more suitable for funerals than others, including roses, lilies, asters, daisies, carnations, chrysanthemums, gladioli, and delphinium.
Some facts about funeral flower displays
Carnations and roses are good choices for anyone looking for a more traditional funeral flower display while mixing several different varieties of flowers can provide a more contemporary feel. Today, the emphasis is often on doing something a little bit different, perhaps even unique, and that concept is no different when it comes to flowers at a funeral.

And personal preference and the tastes of those attending the funeral will also play a part in determining the variety and colors of flowers used. Some favorite colors to consider when thinking about funeral flower displays are bright yellow, deep red or other dark hues.
Sometimes words alone just aren’t adequate, sending flowers to a funeral shows that you care.
