These are popular flowers for funeral services because they have symbolic meaning pertaining to loss. However, any arrangement of flowers may be appropriate at a funeral. Although white funeral flowers are most commonly associated with loss, colorful flowers may be helpful in brightening up the atmosphere. Funeral flowers with springtime colors are optimal because spring is often associated with rebirth and hopefulness.
How much should you spend on flowers for a funeral?
Most people spend around $50 to $80 on funeral flowers. More intricate floral tributes will cost more, but it’s important to remember that larger floral tributes aren't necessarily more expensive. This depends more on the kinds of flowers that are used in the arrangement, and whether or not they're in season.
Do immediate family members send flowers to a funeral?
Immediate family members usually send larger arrangements to the funeral. These include casket sprays, standing sprays, set pieces, funeral plants, and small casket adornments. You may wish to consult the family before sending this kind of gift or flowers for the funeral.
What flowers and arrangements do you send to funerals?
A delivery of funeral flowers is a tactful way to express your condolences and sympathy. Do keep in mind that some religions have certain customs after the death of a family member that may call for a different type of condolence gift.

Chrysanthemums, gladioli, roses, and lilies are popular choices for funeral flower arrangements, such as:
Standing sprays – a tribute to the deceased, a floral spray stands on an easel to be viewed from one side
Baskets – floral funeral bouquets delivered in charming baskets that are ideal for a tabletop display
