What's the Difference Between Funeral and Sympathy Flowers?

Cemetery Lakewood

Sending flowers after someone passes away is traditional, but you may be confused about the difference between funeral flowers and sympathy flowers. Which one should you send when you are attending funeral services or to offer you condolences? Here is what you need to know.

Funeral flowers, as the name suggest, are sent to the funeral home or location of the funeral service and are displayed during the funeral. They tend to be large arrangements and may be shaped in a non-traditional way, such as grouping the flowers to spell out the deceased’s name. Sympathy flowers are sent to the homes of the grieving family members. They are kept at home to be enjoyed by the family as a gesture of your condolences.

At Mountain View Memorial Home, Crematory, and Memorial Park, we offer comprehensive funeral planning and pre-planning services, including burial and cremation in Lakewood, Washington. In your family’s time of need, call us at (253) 584-0252.
