Honour the Loss of a Loved One with These Flower Arrangements

Honour the Loss of a Loved One with These Flower Arrangements

Coping with the loss of a loved one can get incredibly difficult. If someone you know has recently gone through a similar experience, do not hesitate to show your support. Be respectful while paying your tribute to the person who has left for their heavenly abode. You can let the grieving family know that you share their sorrow by choosing the perfect funeral flowers. Wreath flowers are usually the top choice to convey condolences, but they are not the only option.

Here is a brief guide to four floral arrangements that can show the mourning family how well-loved the deceased was in their lifetime.

Coffin sprays:

Also known as coffin tops and casket sprays, coffin sprays are floral arrangements placed on the top of a coffin. They are like a last gift from the living to the deceased. The flowers used in coffin spray floral arrangements are symbolic of the pure soul of the departed and the peaceful eternity that lies ahead. Pastel-hued flowers like pink eustoma and carnations, white lilies and orchids, and purple gerberas are staples in coffin sprays.


There is a beautiful reason why people choose wreaths to honour the deceased. Wreaths are circular, and a circle is a universal symbol of eternity. Flower wreaths, thus, represent the eternal life that lies ahead of the loved one. Gifting a wreath in Singapore is a popular way of expressing sympathy. Wreaths traditionally include a mix of ferns, leaves, and flowers. It is standard to use flowers like chrysanthemums–symbolic of mourning–and lilies–representing spiritual purity–in funeral wreaths in Singapore.

Cross wreaths:

Cross wreaths are cross-shaped floral arrangements that you can consider taking to a funeral. Like the former option, a cross wreath is also a condolence wreath that expresses your heartfelt sympathy for those in mourning. For the Christian community in Singapore, this might be the perfect way to honour the lost one and pray for the soul of the one who is no more. Traditionally, cross wreaths use white flowers that implicitly highlight the heavenly tranquillity that awaits the deceased and the comfort that those in mourning derive from the thought. You can choose to include a few pastel-coloured flowers, red roses, and green foliage for added beauty.

Condolence Bouquets:

If you are not visiting a funeral service but meeting with someone who has recently lost a loved one, a condolence bouquet might be the most appropriate option. This pretty little floral arrangement is a thoughtful way of saying that you deeply care for them. Adhere to the funereal flower codes. Stick to flowers traditionally gifted to express sympathy. Phoenixes, pom-poms, and caspia are the leading choices among florists and customers in Singapore.


After reading this brief guide, you won’t be choosing just any available wreath in Singapore for something as delicate as a funeral service. We hope that the occasion never arises. But, if you ever have to buy funeral flowers, you should contact Prince’s Flower Shop in Singapore. For 50 years, they have served every Singaporean’s floral needs, and you will not be disappointed with their exemplary customer service. They have just the experience and expertise to curate the perfect flowers for any occasion.


Can I avail same-day delivery service?

If you opt for Express Delivery, you will get your item within four hours of ordering it.

Can I add a message on ordered wreaths?

Yes, you can add a condolence message on the wreath.

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.
