Sympathy Flowers

Sending sympathy flowers is a considerate and compassionate way to let somebody in your life know you care if someone close to them passes. Flowers have a strong connection to loss, love, and sympathy, and are used as a thoughtful gesture to let the bereaved know that they’re always in your thoughts.

Evidence suggests that sympathy flowers were given as far back as 62,000 B.C. following soil and flowers found during a cave excavation in Northern Iraq. Now, it’s common for those who have experienced loss to be sent flowers to their home to express sorrow and love from friends and family.

FAQ

What are the best flowers to send for sympathy?

Sympathy flowers are generally more muted and may not be as bold as flowers given during happier occasions. This includes roses, lilies, and carnations. Sympathy flowers are still beautiful and elegant, only they have a deep and more compassionate meaning behind them.

Roses

Roses are a universal symbol of love, so make for a beautiful tribute to someone who has passed. While roses are available in a variety of colors, white and cream roses represent purity and new beginnings and are therefore a thoughtful choice of sympathy flower.

Lilies

Lilies are often displayed at funerals and are synonymous with sympathy. They’re also closely linked to purity and rebirth, which make them an ideal choice for someone who has recently lost a loved one.

Carnations

Because they’re a dense bloom, carnations are found alongside other sympathy flowers and allow them to stand out. Carnations represent devotion, which represents the love felt between the bereaved.

Orchid

Orchids represent thoughtfulness, rebirth, and love. They’re also a low-maintenance and enduring flower, which will act as a long-lasting reminder of the one who has passed.

Whats the difference between sympathy flowers and funeral flowers?

Sympathy flowers are usually sent to the home of the bereaved as a mark of sorrow, sympathy, and love. However, funeral flowers are often for the funeral service and are sent directly to the funeral home.

Sympathy flowers can be smaller bouquets as a way of paying respect to family or friends to ensure they know they’re in your thoughts. Funeral flowers can be much larger, more elaborate designs that act as a tribute to the person who has passed.

What color are traditional sympathy flowers?

Choosing the right color for a sympathy flowers delivery is important, as flower color can evoke many different emotions. For example, white is associated with purity and innocence, whereas red can represent love and passion. Purple and blue are often linked to expressing condolences, sympathy, and respect.

At French Florist, our artists use their skills and experience to create beautiful and touching floral displays that evoke feelings of love, purity, and respect.

Can you deliver in the morning?

Of course. We have Express Delivery availability that you can select during checking out. This guarantees you an early priority delivery time. Please select this time for a priority delivery time...

Do you deliver to hospitals?
Of course. We think it’s one of the nicest ways to show your care and love. There are so many studies that show the immense benefits of sending flowers to someone who is in the hospital. We have special relationships with all the hospitals in our area and know the ins and outs of delivering there. Rest assured our customer service specialist will reach out to the hospital and confirm that your recipient is approved to receive flowers and keep you closely updated if anything about the delivery arises.
What if no one is home when you arrive?

We always retain the wonderful element of surprising the person you’re sending flowers to. If our delivery driver knocks on the door and there is no answer, our customer service team will call to the recipient’s phone number. If no one answers, we may call you to ask to advise. If our driver is at a business or residence where there is a safe location we will leave it in a safe place, and then leave a voicemail for your recipient to let them know they have flowers. We’ll leave our information as well so that they can reach out in case there are any concerns. In occurrences when we do not feel like there is a safe place to leave the flowers, we return them to the shop and notify you and your recipient, letting your recipient know to reach out to us to reschedule the delivery of a fresh arrangement at a time that works best for them. This is something we offer typically at no extra cost.

Will my flowers look like the picture?
Yes! All photography is done fully in-house with actual arrangements we make ourselves. Everything you see on our website is ours and only ours. We have an exceptionally talented design team that uses the photograph you selected for your order to create the same thing for your recipient. There are very certain instances when one type of flower is not in it’s prime, so we will substitute with an equivalent or better flower that most closely resemble the look and feel of the arrangement you chose. Our design team’s eye is exceptional and anytime we substitute the arrangement will look just as (if not sometimes more) stunning. Our #1 commitment is to your happiness and the quality of our arrangements.
How should I care for the flowers or plants?
Keep flowers and plants out of direct sunlight and away from air vents that blow air on them. For flowers, it is best to fill the vase to the very top as soon as it arrives and to refresh the water daily. You should be able to tilt the vase so that most of the water will pour out. Then refill it with fresh water. If one flower shows signs of wilting, you can just simply remove it and enjoy the remaining flowers. For green and blooming plants, wait to add water until the soil becomes dry. When watering, soak the soil and then pour off or out any excess water. If you ever want to transplant to a bigger pot, just wait at least a few weeks so the plant can adjust to their new environment before they undergo major changes in their pot and soil. For orchids or succulents, wait about 10 days between watering and provide only a small amount of water. Orchids and succulents thrive in a dryer environment! Overwatering is a very common way to cause the orchid to be unhappy!
