New Baby Message

Welcoming a new mum into the world is one of the most special things you can do. You can do this through gifts, and flowers. When choosing flowers for a new baby and new mum it’s most common to be sending them to the hospital where the mum gave birth. As such, you must take care when choosing the right flowers. Our advice is simply to order any flowers that come in a box. That way, when the flowers arrive at the hospital they will not need any care, they can be safely place in the room, then easily transported when ‘Mum & Bub’ checks out.

When writing a card message for a new mum please take some consideration as to what you want to say. Ensure that you get and spell the baby’s name right when you are writing the card message, and ensure you have all the correct hospital and room details for when you order.

Card Writing Tips For A New Mum & Baby

  • Congratulations on the birth of your new baby John.
  • Welcome to the world John, and well done Mum!

I am Sorry - send the right message

Saying sorry for something is never easy. Choosing the right sorry gift, be it flowers or something else, can potentially go a long way to adding more context to your feelings, and certainly more depth to your sorrow.

If you are looking at sending “I’m sorry” flowers our advice is simple - choose a bunch or an arrangement that is as bright as possible. If you are sending the flowers to a woman then look at flowers yellow or pink in colour. If you are sending flowers to a man consider whites or natives flowers.

As you receive a free gift card with all flowers it is very important that you convey the right message and make it sound genuine and heartfelt. Yet is also must be to the point and accurate as you don’t have that much room to be verbose.

Pro Tips

  • Please forgive me, I didn’t mean it, I am so deeply sorry.
  • I am having a lot of trouble forgiving myself for, can you find it in your heart to forgive me?
  • Where do I start...I have done wrong by you, I am so sorry, please forgive me darling.
  • Please let me have one more chance, I know I really messed up. Please forgive me.
  • I realise that this is just a small gesture, but I sincerely hope these flowers go some way into helping you forgive me for my wrongs.
  • I am truly sorry for my thoughtless actions, please try and find a way to forgive me babe.
  • I am lost for words to say how for how much I am sorry, please accept these flowers as a token of my sorrow.
  • This message and flowers are symbolic of how sorry I am. Please forgive me.
  • I hurt your deeply, I am aware of that now, I take full responsibility for that now. Please find a way that you can forgive me as I am hurting so much.
  • I hurt your feelings, I get it now, it won’t happen again. I am sorry my love.
  • In the heat of the moment I say silly things, that I don’t mean. It won’t happen again, and you know how hard I am working on it. I am sorry.
  • Your friendship means the world to me, I have treasured every moment of it. Forgive me, pretty please.
  • I'm sorry for any hurt I've caused. You mean the world to me and I never want to hurt you. I hope you can forgive me and that we can move forward with love and understanding. You are my everything and I will make it up to you. I love you.

Sympathy Card Messages

Writing a message of sympathy is one of the most challenging things you can do when ordering flowers. First of all, we would like to point out that the flowers you order are as important as the card message that goes with them. Sympathy flowers are designed to go to the friends or family of the deceased and, as such, thought needs to go into what types of flowers you want to order. We suggest ordering something from our arrangements flower category and the reason for this is that that all flower products in this category come crafted in a appropriate box, meaning that the flower, when delivered, can be left at varying places around the home. It means too that the recipient doesn’t need to be concerned about finding vases as, in most cases, they will receive lots of flowers.

There are two important things to consider here; The first is to consider your relationship with the deceased and what member of the family the flowers are being sent to, deciding on these will determine the style of the car message associated with the flowers.

Card Suggestions To A Family Member - a sympathy message

  • We are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of John. As you grieve during this trying time please know that the memories of him will be with us forever.
  • We know that your heart is broken, we would like you to know that we are here and fully able to support you during this immensely difficult time.
  • Our family's hearts go out to your and your family and whilst we could never comprehend the hardships you are going through at this time, we would like you to know that we are thinking of you and you can call on us at any time.
  • We are so sorry to hear about the loss of John. We’re unsure exactly what to say, other that we are here for you.
  • We hope the loving memories of your father, some day, go some way to easing the pain you are going through right now.
  • We wish all the love in the world to you and your family during this challenging time.
  • Please, we are here for you, through the ups, and now through the downs, if there is anything you need, at any time, please let us know. We’re only a phone call away.
  • Our thoughts and love are with you.
  • Accept our deepest condolences at this difficult time.
  • Our thoughts and prayers are with you always.
  • Thinking of you during this difficult time and sending love and comfort. You are not alone. May fond memories bring a smile to your face and strength to get through this. My deepest sympathies and condolences.

Card Suggestions For Funeral Flowers

As we briefly mentioned about funeral flowers are different to Sympathy Flowers in that they usually are sent to the ceremony and or the cemetery. Therefore careful consideration needs to be given when sending funeral flowers. Funeral flowers are usually made up of both Funeral Wreaths and Funeral Sheaths, people rarely send flower bunches, but sometimes send flower arrangements.

This means that the card message needs to be more suited to a memory of the deceased, rather than saying something about the family member or members.

  • With loving memories.
  • Your memories will be with us forever.
  • The joy your brought our lives will always be remembered.
  • You were the light in our lives, you will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.
  • In loving memory of John, thanks for the memories.
  • May your soul rest easy my friend. Be at peace.
