It is hard to know what to do or say when someone you love is in mourning. However, when words or actions are uncertain, you sending sympathy flowers always communicates that you care. From a floral wreath for the service, to a potted plant delivered to the family’s home, flowers are the universal sign of letting someone know you’re thinking of them.

When sending flowers, it is important to keep these tips in mind:

Arrangements Can Never Arrive Too Late

You may have not been able to attend the funeral, but it’s never too late to send flowers. Consider forwarding a potted arrangement to the mourning family’s home.

Flowers Can Never Be Too Beautiful

When picking out flowers, select bright, colorful arrangements for funeral bouquets. Though the tone and demeanor of the service should be understated, the  flowers should be warm and welcoming. Feel free to order roses, carnations, lilies, mums, and daisies of any color.

Size Doesn’t Matter

It’s important to show of support, but it’s not important that your gesture be bigger and better than everyone else’s. Don’t go for broke on flowers. Select a flower arrangement that fits your budget.

Don’t Worry About Type

Don’t overthink about what flowers have what meanings. Pick flowers that your loved one liked the most. If you’re not sure of their favorite flower, then pick flowers of their favorite color.

It’s difficult to go wrong with sympathy flowers. So stop worrying and choose the arrangement you like best. Your friend will appreciate you for it no matter what flowers you pick.
