When sending flowers to a person's house you may ask yourself, "What is the proper etiquette? What do I send?" Well there's no need to add extra stress to an already stressful time. There are a few things to remember though. You don't want to send something too large as the family likely will not have any space for such a piece. Steer away from any arrangement that would typically go on a stand such as a heart, spray, or cross. Floor baskets are also an arrangement that may not be suitable for the home as they can be quite large and if they have a pet you don't want them to be able to get within reach of flowers. If you missed having flowers delivered for a funeral service then sending them to their home is a great way of showing how much you care.

Flower Basket Arrangements

 

Should you decide not to go with a vase then another suitable type of arrangement would be something in a basket. Keep in mind that floor baskets are a bit too large for the home so look for a table arrangement. A basket with a handle is important to ensure the family will have no trouble moving it around the home. For a man choose arrangement in more masculine colors. Yellow is a good gender neutral color so that combined with some purple and white will ensure that arrangement is suitable for a man. Here is a very good example of this.
