Sympathy flowers and funeral flowers are sent for the same reasons, to send condolences and provide comfort during times of loss. However, there are important differences between sympathy flowers and funeral flowers and the etiquette for each is a little different. These differences come from consideration of the feelings of those who have lost a loved one.

Arrangements made expressly for a funeral home can be upsetting to grieving people when sent to home or office. Generally speaking, funeral flowers go to the funeral home and sympathy flowers can go anywhere.

 

Funeral Flowers are a Tribute to the Deceased

 Funeral flowers provide decoration and serve as a tribute to the deceased. Funeral flowers are often formal and one-sided in design precisely so they will look best in a funeral home and at graveside services. Funeral flowers are usually not addressed to a particular loved one of the deceased but are intended, instead, as a way to pay respect to the deceased themselves. Funeral flowers etiquette tells us that funeral flowers should never be sent to the home.

Sympathy Flowers are Personal and Life-Affirming

 Sympathy flowers are usually directly addressed to a loved one of the deceased. Sympathy flowers are sent directly to any family member, friend, acquaintance or business associate who has suffered a recent loss.

Sympathy flowers are more at home in a home. They tend to be arrangements that look good on end tables or used as centerpieces. Plants and planters also make great choices as sympathy flowers because they provide a lasting reminder of your thoughtfulness and serve as a keepsake in memory of the recipient’s loved one.
