Funeral Flowers Selection Guide

For The Casket

It is important to treat the family with the utmost respect at this point and to be as sensitive as you can. Not only have they just lost a loved one but they will have lots of other things on their mind, such as life insurance and funeral arrangements. They will probably be more than delighted at the suggestion of flowers for the casket, it is just necessary to ask first and respect their wishes at all times. The tradition of adorning the casket with fresh flowers is typically reserved for the closest family members, either the surviving spouse or the deceased’s children or those making the funeral arrangements. For that reason, it is recommended that you inquire with the family before ordering a gift of flowers for the casket.

A floral arrangement designed to sit on top of the casket, or casket spray, is available in two types. A lid spray, also called a full-couch casket spray, extends the length of the casket, while a foot spray, or half-couch casket spray, is shorter and is intended to be used for a half-open casket service. The style of casket spray and the flowers you choose to include is entirely up to you. Some feel most comfortable with a classic, traditional look, while others might opt for a highly personalized tribute based on a particular theme. For example, a rustic, natural spray for the outdoorsman or an abundance of bright flowers for the avid gardener.

Immediate Family Sending to the Funeral Service

If the loss is an immediate family member, close friend or business partner traditional larger pieces such as a heart shaped wreath, large floral spray on a stand, a large standing floral cross, or other large free standing piece is appropriate to choose. Often family members may send one large piece from several siblings or a combination of pieces.
