Ask the Expert:What kind of flowers for church baptism?
I am 60 years old and am getting baptized with my 9 year old granddaughter. We will be providing the alter flowers for the church on that day and would like some suggestions on what kind of flowers would be appropriate for this occassion? Lora
Plant Expert Reply:
It depends on your religious affilation.Â The appropriate baptism flower color usually falls in line with the season's liturgical color. If you belong to a church that has an alter guild, I would speak with them.Â The alter guild usually knows which colors will be appropriate for the day.Â However, the most used flower color for baptism is white.
When I was baptized several years ago, my local florist created arrangements with Casablanca lilies.Â I wanted the Casablanca lilies because their flower meaning is Celebrate.Â Baptisms are definitely a time to celebrate.
I have been to baptisms where white gladiolus were used.Â I have also been to baptisms where the flower arrangements had multiple colors.Â In my opinion the safest bet would be to use all white flowers in the baptisms arrangements.Â White is universally accepted and this way you will make sure not to offend anyone.
