A funeral is a time to honour and celebrate the memory of a loved one who has passed away. Did you know that the specific funeral flower arrangements that you choose actually have very specific meanings? We take a look at a few of the most popular types of funeral flower arrangements below, as well as the relevant meanings behind them:

  • Carnations 

These flowers are extremely long-lasting, which emphasises the fact that the memory of the deceased loved one will always remain. Pink carnations, in particular, are also known to symbolise remembrance, whereas white carnations symbolise a pure, untainted love.

  • Roses

Roses are popular flower arrangements chosen for a wide range of events, including funerals. Red roses are most commonly known for symbolising love, but they also convey respect and courage. Pink roses are said to signify appreciation and white roses, reverence.

  • Lilies 

Lilies are arguably the most popular flower arrangements for both weddings and funeral. Not only are they gorgeous, but they emit the sweetest aroma that has been proven to lift the spirits. They also symbolise purity of the soul.

  • Tulips 

Stunning yellow tulips symbolise a fresh, new start, which makes them the perfect choice to use in funeral flower arrangements. They are commonly paired with daffodils, creating a cheery, hopeful aesthetic.

  • Orchids 

Orchids, like carnations are known for their long-lasting properties and, as such, symbolise a never-ending love. No wonder why that they are also go-to choices for funeral flowers.
