The death of a child is tragic event. For the baby's funeral, mourners often send flowers to let the parents know they care. An experienced florist can assist with choosing the right flowers if you aren't sure what kind of floral arrangement is appropriate.
When choosing flowers for a child's funeral, the arrangements are typically smaller than what you would set up for the funeral of an adult. Often toys and angels will be included in the display.
According to the Flower Shop Network, brightly colored flowers or soft pastels are appropriate for a child's funeral. Delicate, white flowers like the white-stargazer lily are also considered appropriate.
If you are attending a baby's funeral, you can bring flowers for the bereaved in many forms. Bouquets, wreaths, sprays and crosses are all socially appropriate to bring for the grieving parents.
