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. The color of flowers that best represents your deceased loved one may be 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 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. 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.
