Traditional Funeral Flower Arrangements

Funeral flowers are generally categorized by their function; here are a few of the more commonly used arrangements to avoid any confusion when ordering:

  • Wreaths – These are circular floral arrangements, which represent eternal life.
  • Floral arrangements – Any type of floral arrangement, from cut flowers to basket and container arrangements.
  • Sprays – These are arrangements that allow viewing from one side only.
  • Casket sprays – These are usually organized by direct family members and sit on top of the casket.
  • Inside pieces – These are the items placed inside the casket, such as small floral sprays.

A great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again. ~Maya Angelou
