The casket flowers and sprays are generally purchased by the immediate family of the deceased. This includes the casket pillow or garland to adorn an urn. If you wish to purchase one of these items on behalf of the family, it is best to inquire with them as to what they wish to select.
When sending flowers to the funeral home or celebration of life, friends can choose from a variety of beautiful tributes. Although white flowers are symbolic of sympathy, these displays can be designed in many different colors and styles, to best reflect the life and personality of your loved one. Easels can display a traditional spray, a meaningful cross or heart tribute, or a floral wreath. You may also wish to send a bouquet to honor the deceased, especially poignant because they can decorate the service but then be brought to the family’s home after the service. You may not have the opportunity to send flowers to the service or funeral home, but in these instances it is entirely appropriate to send a bouquet to the home of the grieving family. You may wish instead to choose a green or flowering plant, which will remind them of your love and support for months and years to come.
