Colours are subjective. The interpretation a person receives from any color is in the eyes of the beholder. However, society has created preconceived notions of what a colour represents.
From my humble opinion. Many people have favorites things in their life. Favourite food, favourite clothes, favourite seasons, favourite songs, as well as colours and flowers. So if l am to buy anything for anyone as a gift l like to include this when making my decision. Also, it is almost impossible to buy flowers which do not look beautiful in their own way.
Flowers and Casket and Coffins
Another consideration that should be made is the colour of the casket or coffin. These two elements will often be together: For example the flowers will often be placed on top of the casket. Rarely is the casket left without flowers. So try to ensure the two colours suit. If the appearance of the casket is of greater importance then choose flowers which suit it. If the choice of flowers is of greater importance then choose the flowers first and then choose a casket to suit those flowers.
Together these two elements can create a beautiful image. Sydney Coffins offer packages where we have matched the best coloured flowers to the best choice of coffins and casket to save you in matching colours which work best. We hope this option assists you.
