Are "sympathy flowers" different from "funeral flowers"?

Sympathy flowers are sent to the family or the closest associate of the deceased. They are usually smaller floral designs to decorate end tables or used as a centerpiece.

Funeral flowers are to pay tribute to the deceased at the funeral service. Funeral flowers are formal, large and inappropriate for a home or office, so they should be sent only to the funeral service.
