Tips for Choosing Sympathy Flowers

Sympathy flower arrangements are a traditional way of offering condolences after a person dies. While any arrangement you choose will be appreciated, there are special flowers that help convey consolation and sympathy more than others. Calla lilies, roses, gladiolas, and snapdragons are traditional funeral flowers, but it is also appropriate to choose flowers that the deceased may have liked. Talk with a florist for help selecting flowers with empathetic meanings, or consult with a funeral planning professional about the type of arrangement that will be appropriate considering the type of memorial service.
