Standing Sprays for Men
Standing sprays are another type of appropriate and tasteful funeral flowers for men. Standing sprays like the ones below are both masculine and appropriate to send to any funeral.
Casket Sprays for Men
Funeral flowers etiquette tells us that casket sprays are generally sent by immediate family members. Such close family members will often have some idea of what flowers or colors the deceased enjoyed and they can be incorporated into the casket spray. Details such as the color of the casket and the color of their loved one’s clothing can also serve to narrow down appropriate funeral flowers or colors. The masculine casket sprays below would both make beautiful floral tributes for any man.
