When someone close to you is going through a rough time, you may feel like there is nothing you can do to cheer them up. Flowers might seem like an inappropriate gift at these times but sending sympathy flowers can help remind the recipient of better times and happier days, by sending fresh sympathy flowers you show your friends and family empathy and support at their greatest time of need. If you cannot find the words to say how sorry you are for their loss sympathy flowers can do the talking for you.
Sympathy flowers let the bereaved know that you are thinking of them at this difficult moment in their lives. This thoughtfulness can help your friends at a difficult time. In situations like these we are usually not prepared for the loss, so when ordering sympathy flowers it is important to choose the right florist, as they are prepared to take care of the little details, and prevent any possible faux pas.
It is important be aware of the difference between sympathy flowers, sent to comfort the bereaved, and funeral flowers which are sent to be present at the funeral ceremony itself, to show your feelings, or to represent you in your absence.
You may feel that a bright coloured gerbera daisy bouquet will bring cheer at a gloomy time or you may feel that your recipient would prefer muted tones at this stage, in which case pastels and purples are general favourites. Sending a sympathy plant is always popular as a growing plant represents continuity of life and new hopes for the future.

Sympathy flowers are for the close family of the deceased and should be sent to express your sympathy with them in their loss and let them know that you are thinking of them and help them through the grieving process. White flowers are a traditional choice, but if you know the family better you might send something brighter, or the bereaved's favourite colour to give them a cheerful memory to cherish.
The closer you are to the deceased and their family the more generous you should be with the type of sympathy flower bouquet you send. Flowers can substitute for the words of sympathy that are so difficult to say, and their presence around the bereaved can make them feel less alone.
Finally, when sending sympathy flowers you should include a written message of condolence of your own. Include a personal memory of the deceased that may bring back the happier times. It is important to remember to keep the message as short as possible, regardless of your relationship to the deceased.
