Flowers are present at all of life’s big events--including at the end. When ordering sympathy flowers, we at Florious suggest these general things to keep in mind.
Neutral tones are appropriate if the flowers are being sent to a funeral home so that your bouquet will fit in with the decor and other bouquets that may have been received. If you're sending to a funeral home- definitely don’t forget to include a card with your bouquet to express your condolences and identify you as the sender. If you’re not sure about an appropriate bouquet size, place a call to the funeral home and ask where they display flowers. Typically, funeral homes use columns or plinths to accommodate vases, but it doesn’t hurt to check.
If you are sending sympathy flowers to someone’s home, you want them to fit the decor and style of the home. Remember that the purpose of flowers sent to someone’s home is to brighten their day, not to remind them of the funeral. When sending flowers to a home, we recommend that you not send a plant to someone in mourning. Flowers are dispensable; plants grow and exist as a reminder of loss.
We hope you find these suggestions from Florious helpful when you choose flowers to express your sympathy.
