Here’s why flowers can be a great way to honour the deceased

The purpose behind a funeral gift, be it in the form of money or flowers, is to indicate our love for the deceased. The loss for a dear one can be overwhelming for the family. Although flowers cannot ease their pain, they do their job of conveying your heartfelt condolences. The tradition of honouring the deceased with funeral flowers has existed for thousands of years now. Condolence flowers in Singapore serve as tokens of sympathy and have a far deeper meaning than money. Let’s dive into some other reasons:

  • Sentimental value:

    Sentimental value of funeral flowers is far greater than that of money. Many people nowadays consider making monetary donations in lieu of flowers, but for a second, think about the message flowers send across to the bereaved family. Different flowers symbolize different emotions. If you are at a loss for words after the sudden demise of a loved one, give condolence flower delivery to the grief-stricken family a thought.

  • Religious significance:

    Singapore boasts a multi-religious society. It’s extremely common for Buddhists to send lilies or chrysanthemums to funerals. Islam emphasizes simplicity, and therefore it’s no surprise that Muslims generally prefer roses as funeral flowers in Singapore. Taking flowers to a Christian funeral can be a nice gesture, too. In all, it’s important to keep in mind funeral practices according to faith.

  • Customization:

    Funeral flowers show way more effort than money because they’re customizable. Each flower is known to carry a different meaning & emotion. For example, lilies, chrysanthemums and carnations represent peace, purity and love. A funeral wreath in Singapore can be arranged with stunning lilies, roses, and hydrangeas. Hydrangeas can make for an ideal sympathy arrangement.

  • Positive atmosphere:

    In many cultures, funerals are held to celebrate the life of the departed soul. You can create a more positive environment for the event by showing up with a flower wreath in Singapore. Flowers can uplift everyone’s mood instantly with their beauty. And the abundance of beautiful flowers at the funeral will let everyone know how much you appreciated the dead soul.

No matter the reason, flowers make for an absolute heartfelt sympathy arrangement at a loved one’s funeral. Whether it’s a basket or a wreath, an arrangement of mesmerizing flowers is sure to convey your sincere emotions to the grieving family. If you live in Singapore, contact a florist today to explore different options.

one of my most fav nurseries out of many i’ve explored in SG. it’s conveniently located near bukit panjang mrt. above all, the prices are reasonable (esp various types of soil mix, fertilizers, pesticides & pots). i’ve bought many plants here; on my lucky days i managed to buy a few rare caladiums and begonias! 😀

Bought my Valentine's bouquet here via instagram. The staff was friendly and patient in explaining the different types of bouquets available and worked well within my budget. They have both delivery and self-pickup options which made it very convenient for us buyers. Needless to say my special one was very pleased with the bouquet. Will definitely come back here again for my flowers.
