Sympathy Flower & Gifts

Express your heartfelt sympathy at this most difficult time with one of our gorgeous condolence arrangements.

Sending someone sympathy flowers lets them know they are in your thoughts. It doesn't matter if you live down the street from them or you're half a world away, it shows them just how much you care.

Which Flowers For Sympathy

There is no right or wrong when it comes to sympathy, bereavement or condolence flowers. Typically soft colours are best. White is the most traditional colour as it represents purity and humility. However other soft colours such as pink and purple would not look out of place.

Whether to choose a sympathy arrangement as a bouquet or in a vase, well generally it is a more practical concern. If they are being delivered to a home, then a vase arrangement is ok. But if being delivered to a workplace or hospital, then perhaps a bouquet, as it will be easier to take home at the end of the day.

Generally speaking, the following types of flowers are most popular due to their softer hues and elegance:

  • Lilies
  • White roses
  • Orchids
  • Carnations
  • Chrysanthemums

But of course, maybe the deceased was fond of a particular kind of flower, in which case it would be an equally poignant way to express your condolences.

What To Say With Your Sympathy Flowers

When expressing your condolences, you can optionally add a personalised message when you order your flowers.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right words to say. You could be overwhelmed by emotions, or you can feel reluctant to say what you feel for fear that you might upset the recipient.

To make it easier for you, here are some commonly used messages that we have seen over the years sent with the sympathy bouquets we deliver:

  1. Forever in our hearts
  2. Thinking of you at this difficult time
  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with you
  4. Our heartfelt condolences to you and your family
  5. Our heart goes out to you at this difficult time
  6. Words seem inadequate to express our profound sorrow
  7. Please accept our sincerest condolences for your loss
  8. We are so profoundly saddened to hear about your loss

Feel free to mix and match the above to come up with your perfect sympathy message. Maybe add a personal touch at the end to make it unique to you.

Where Do You Send Sympathy Flowers

There's a subtle difference between sympathy and funeral flowers:

  • funeral flowers are sent straight to the funeral service itself
  • sympathy flowers ordinarily go to the home of the deceased
  • funeral flowers can often include sympathy wreaths or funeral wreaths
  • sympathy flowers are typically in bouquet or vase style

Be sure to address your flower arrangement to a loved one of the deceased - this might be a family member, friend or workmate.
