- White orchids are highly revered in Singapore. Therefore, they have become traditional condolence bouquet flowers. Their beauty perfectly emphasizes the solemnity and spirituality of the moment.
- White carnations are a symbol of consolation and reassurance. This meaning is significant because it is valuable not only how much grief captures us at the moment of loss. What is valuable is that later, we will remember the person and appreciate this memory when it subsides.
If you do not want to use only white colors, it will be appropriate to complement it with pastel, muted shades. For men, cold tones are traditionally chosen; for women — warm. An exception may be burgundy and rich red flowers, which are used as a symbol of all-consuming love.
As a green decor, plants of restrained dark coniferous shades are chosen.
