Chapter 5: Floral Arrangements for a Funeral

Funerals are a sad time for everyone and flowers are an important part of most funerals. Some funerals will not have flowers due to religious reasons or the dying personís wishes. Flowers show respect for the dead person and for the family. The family feels there is respect for the death and will feel a little bit better with the floral arrangements in the ceremony. Consider going with a traditional funeral arrangement unless there are specific preferences. You will not have a lot of time to prepare for a funeral but enough time to research and find a good florist. Sometimes the funeral home will take care of getting the florist and the floral arrangement set up for the funeral.

Funeral flowers will usually be purchased by family or people that are acquainted with the deceased person. Consider talking to the florist about what arrangements are appropriate for a funeral if you are unsure what to buy. Florists have a lot of experience with arranging flowers for funerals.
