Immediate Family: The closest family members (spouse, children, or siblings) are typically responsible for choosing the casket spray, urn arrangements or funeral flowers for the service. Flowers and arrangements from immediate family members are usually placed closest to the casket.

For the Service: Traditional sympathy flowers from extended family, friends, and colleagues represent a wide variety of options. Standing sprays, crosses or wreaths that are displayed on an easel are customary, but smaller arrangements (such as vases or baskets) are an appropriate choice as well. These can also be taken home with the family after the service.

For the Home: Basket arrangements, sympathy flowers in vases or potted plants are appropriate to send to the private residence.

Traditional Sympathy Flowers: Gladioli are known as the official 'Flower of remembrance', but roses, carnations or lilies are also popular funeral flowers. Although there are flowers that are more frequently used, any of the decedent;s favorite blooms will be appropriate.
