Sending Sympathy Flowers

At times of great sadness you may feel it is appropriate to send a card or flowers to convey your sympathies.  Over the years here at Re:Creation flowers we have delivered flowers to many people that have recently lost a loved one. We select flowers that are subtle, neutral and in season, not brash or over the top size wise. We can offer expert advice on the flower choices and what to write on the card. Also, we can advise you when it is the right time to send a bouquet.

What flowers to send?

This time of year, tall white gladioli and scented stocks would be a beautiful choice, later on in the year and through into spring tulips are perfect. Striking white chrysanthemum blooms and delicate ammi majus are lovely fillers too. Lilies are often associated with funerals but this shouldn’t stop you sending them before a funeral. The person who has passed may have loved them and it is often the colour of the flowers chosen, not the flowers themselves that covey a message.

What to write on the card?

A short message is all that is needed really to let the person know you are thinking of them and that words are never enough. We recommend avoiding anything too formal like, “Sincerely,” as it may come off as too distant for the circumstances. Consider your relationship with the recipient and choose one that feels appropriate. No matter how you deliver your words of support, just know they will make a difference.

  • Thinking of you,
  • With caring thoughts,
  • With deepest sympathy,
  • Deepest condolences,
  • With love at this sad time,
  • My heart goes out to you at this time,

 

When should you send sympathy flowers?

Flowers of support and sympathy can really be sent any time, as long as they don’t arrive during an actual funeral service. Send them as soon as you hear of the loss, even weeks afterwards. The person you are sending them to will appreciate that you are thinking of them, or that you also are feeling the loss.
