Sympathy

Sympathize with the family of the deceased by sending sympathy or funeral flowers. This is a touching way of sharing your sadness and grief with those who have suffered a loss. Whether you are close to the bereaved or you personally know the deceased, your thoughtfulness of sending flowers and expressing sympathy will be much appreciated.

Offering flowers, funeral flowers, sympathy bouquets and more

Lily’s Florist has a vast selection of sympathy and funeral flowers that can be delivered to memorial services or to the family home of the deceased. We have delicately-arranged baskets of fragrant pink lilies, a basket of rich pink roses, a bunch of red roses in elegant vase, white flower arrangements, orange sheath, wreaths in white, pink, orange and cream, as well as casket sprays. Lily’s Florist uses lilies, roses, carnations, irises, and gerberas as these are symbolic flowers with subtle charm. Our hand-arranged flowers are designed to look tactful yet still expressive of the sender’s sympathy and concern.

Comfort the family of the deceased with flowers

If you are familiar with the favourite flower of the deceased, it would be nice to send a flower arrangement with his/her favourites in it. Lily’s Florist, Australia's #1 online florist can deliver funeral flowers to the funeral home or church and we can send sympathy flowers to the family’s house. Your flower offering can be a good reminder of the comfort you want to share with the bereaved. Remember that grief shared is grief lessened so even if you can’t personally be there to provide comfort, your gesture is enough to console the family in this difficult time. Flowers are gifts from nature and they symbolise life and beauty. The flowers you send can somehow remind the bereaved that life still holds beauty.

Send flowers a week after the funeral

Lily’s Florist’s creations are thoughtfully arranged so that recipients will find comfort in seeing them. If you think many of the family and friends of the bereaved will send a flower offering to the memorial or grave site, you may opt to send flowers a week after the funeral. Grieving is such a long process and your unexpected sympathy gesture will surely help in uplifting the family’s spirit. If you knew about the sad news just recently, it is never too late to send sympathy flowers. Your flower offering will be a reminder that you have not forgotten them and that you are sharing the loss.  

Sympathy flowers doesn’t necessarily have to be somber

Flower arrangements for funerals and sympathy don’t have to be too inconspicuous. Even bright and colorful flower arrangements can look modest when professionally arranged. Keep in mind the purpose of your flower offering. Your gift can remind the family to celebrate the meaningful life that was lived. The color and beauty of a vivid arrangement can instantly remind them of hope, rebirth, and the life after death. It is already a sad time and sending something dark or dull cannot really provide a comforting diversion from the depressing atmosphere.

Tips in Sending Sympathy Flowers

From an etiquette standpoint, we recommend sending sympathy sprays, wreaths and funeral baskets for delivery to funeral home, church, mortuary, or grave site. These are the more decorative and larger floral arrangements.  Flowers in vase and smaller basket arrangements or those typically called sympathy flowers are appropriate for delivery to the residence or a place of business of a family member or friend who has lost a loved one. These are smaller arrangements tastefully prepared to help you express your condolences. When sending sympathy flowers, you might also want to consider the religious belief of the recipient or the family of the deceased. Roman Catholics, Mormons, Buddhists Protestants and other Christian faiths welcome sympathy flowers and funeral flower arrangements. Those who practice Eastern Orthodox follow a strict process between death and burial and would find white funeral flowers to be more meaningful.  Sending flowers isn’t really part of the Hindu tradition and Muslim or Islamic cultures also have differing opinions when it comes to receiving funeral flowers. Funeral flower etiquette differs by religion and it is advised that you speak to a member of the grieving family if you are unsure of the funeral service practice that they follow.
