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.

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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
