Red flowers continue to be some of the most popular blossoms to date and although many times the hue is reserved for a romantic type of love, they can also offer peace during sad times. If your loved one recently passed away, you may be faced with a variety of concerns ranging from calling relatives to let them know the somber news to making the proper arrangements for a funeral or memorial service.

Red may be a suitable option to honor your recently passed family member

One aspect of the service that is left solely up to you and your relatives is the type of flowers you want to represent your deceased loved one. Many may opt for more traditional pink, yellow, peach or cream bouquets, yet some people are best remembered with bright or bold blossoms. In the latter case, red may be a suitable option to honor your recently passed family member.

Red can lend passion to funeral services

Red typically has more personal associations than any other hue as it works to increase energy levels, encourages confidence and provides a sense of protection from fear and anxiety, reports. These traits may work well in the funeral setting and may prompt mourners to share their own stories of your loved one, creating a day of life celebrations rather than about your family member's passing. Red also draws attention and helps people focus, which is important during a somber time like your loved one's funeral.

Red flowers can be crafted into traditional funeral flower arrangements, including casket sprays that lay elegantly on top of a closed casket. The blossoms can also be made into beautiful funeral wreaths or funeral easel standing sprays.
