FAQ: What should I consider when sending Sympathy flowers?

Golden Memories flower arrangement

Flowers have long been a powerful and visual expression of love, sympathy and tribute. Sending flowers honors the deceased and lends support to those who are grieving. Sending any flower or plant arrangement shares your sentiment, is a heartfelt act and lets others know that you care for them and for the deceased — there are no right or wrong choices and personal preferences should play the largest role in making a decision about what to send. But we are often asked for advice on what flowers to send to funerals and are  addressing some of the most frequently asked questions here:

1) What do most people send? What are the most common types of flower arrangements sent to a funeral or funeral home?

The most common types of sympathy arrangements we’ve seen customers send to funerals are standing flower sprays (floral arrangements that are lifted and displayed using an easel) and flower basket arrangements.  “Flowers create a background of warmth and beauty”, as noted by Todd Van Beck of A.S. Turner and Sons, and “following the service, the bereaved are left with an indelible impression of the funeral. Flowers are a very important item in this lasting impression, for they directly affect the warmth and comfort generated by the ‘memory picture’.”  Having a mixture of different types and sizes of arrangements and sprays provides for a full background.

Hearts Eternal Wreath from Field of Flowers

Some people want to send something that the family can take home with them following the ceremony.  Small and medium sized floral baskets and plant arrangements that include Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily) or Orchids are popular choices.Other options include arrangements in the form of a cross to express religious devotion, in the shape of hearts, or with a patriotic theme.

At Field of Flowers, or your local florist, we can make a custom arrangement to meet your needs, and have a full selection of sympathy and funeral arrangements designed for you to choose from.

2) What color of flowers should I send in a funeral arrangement?

Quiet Tribute standing funeral flower spray

Many people choose to express sympathy with white flowers such as with the Quiet Tribute Standing Spray, but it is just as common to choose vibrant colors or a focal point of the deceased’s favorite flower or color, such as with the Golden Memories.  All flowers are a beautiful expression of your sympathy and a token of respect for the deceased.

3) Should I add a banner or ribbon to the funeral flowers?

This is solely a personal choice. Whereas banners in the past most often identified the deceased’s relationship with family, such as “Loving Son” or “Beloved Sister”, it is also common for friends and co-workers to use a banner as a stronger way to express their sentiment and emotion, sometimes with a message to the family such as “You are in our prayers”.

4) What should I write on the card sent with sympathy flowers?

The best messages are the ones that come from your heart and that may help share the burden of grief. It is fine to include a brief message or a long one. Your florist can help you work it out if you need that. The most common sentiments continue to include “With deepest sympathy” and “You are in our thoughts and prayers”.
