What is the Difference Between Funeral Flowers and Sympathy Flowers?
You may be wondering why we’re making a big deal out of distinguishing between funeral flowers and sympathy flowers. While there may not be any written protocol that details the requirements for giving flowers as a sign of respect after someone dies, there is always etiquette surrounding the gift of flowers, and the death of someone close to you is no exception.
Funeral flowers are arrangements that go to the church, the funeral home, or the graveside. They tend to be large and formal designs that represent a show or respect or tribute to the decedent. When you’re ordering funeral roses, they’re addressed to the funeral home with a note accompanying the flowers letting the funeral home staff know that you are sending the flowers as a sign of respect for a particular individual.
Sympathy flowers are more compact designs that go to the home of the deceased or members of their family – wherever they are gathering. When we create arrangements to send to the grieving family of the decedent, we come up with designs that the family can use on an entryway console table, a fireplace mantle, or on coffee, end tables, or as a centerpiece on a larger table. We may even create a small container garden using green and flowering plants. The family will be able to enjoy the plants in the garden once people stop coming over to pay their respects, and your gift will comfort the family as they continue to grieve.
Significance of Traditional Funeral and Sympathy Flowers
- White roses represent innocence, purity, and spirituality.
- Red roses symbolize love and grieving.
- Yellow roses illustrate the bond of friendship between the decedent and the person giving the flowers.
- Dark pink roses convey thankfulness for the deceased.
- Pink carnations are especially appropriate to use in sympathy and funeral flower arrangements for devout Christian or Catholic people because of the belief that the pink color came from the Virgin Mary’s tears.
- White carnations symbolize innocence.
- Red carnations represent affection.
People often associate the intense fragrance that lilies emit with funerals, and for a good reason. It’s a flower that’s often used in funeral and sympathy flower arrangements. The color white, when used in connection with flowers, symbolizes innocence and purity. Lilies are commonly used in funeral flower arrangements as a way of indicating the soul of the decedent returned to the peacefully innocent state it was in at birth.
Mums are used throughout Europe and the United States to indicate honor and sympathy.
- Red Chrysanthemums symbolize love.
- White Chrysanthemums represent innocence.
Hydrangeas express heartfelt emotions.
Hyacinths are always added to arrangements that combine a variety of flowers. They are never used alone. They typically convey the message that the giver of the flowers is praying for the deceased and their family. Hyacinths are also used as a sign of deep anguish.
