Simply looking at and being around beautiful flowers can help a person feel calmer and more cheerful, providing a vital emotional lift during an overwhelming time.
Fresh flower arrangements add elegance and grace to memorial services, funerals and viewings, and can provide a comforting reminder of how much the departed was loved and cherished by the community.

Types of Funeral Flower Arrangements
Traditional sympathy flower arrangements come in several forms. Bear in mind that any flowers that appear on a casket or funerary urn are generally placed there by the family. The options available to everyone else include wreaths, sprays, baskets and arrangements, and live plants. Wreaths and sprays are supported on a tripod supplied by the funeral home, while baskets and vase flower arrangements are designed to sit on a table or floor. Live plants can also be displayed on a table or stand. Wreaths can come in many shapes, including round, cross, and heart shaped.
Types of Funeral Flowers
Lilies are the traditional choice for flower arrangements, due to their beauty, strong scent, and associations with resurrection. However, you’re not limited to lilies, in fact, we often recommend moving away from Lillies due to the Gold Coast's climate. Sympathy flower arrangements can feature any flower or color scheme. Carnations and chrysanthemums come in a wide variety of colors, as do roses. A very popular option for Gold Coast funeral flowers is the orchid, a well loved and respectable Flower.
