Each of our sympathy flowers selections is hand-crafted and locally delivered with a enclosure card containing your personal message. And, we'll help you make a tasteful choice.
Types of Sympathy Gifts
Sympathy flowers are available in a variety styles and sizes. Popular choices for the funeral home or memorial service include traditional fan- or triangular-shaped arrangements which can be displayed on columns, easel sprays which are usually delivered on their own wire or wooden stands, premium tributes such as floral wreaths, hearts, and crosses, vased arrangements, and more compact bouquets in glass bowls, baskets, or other containers. The most popular choices for the home or office tend to be smaller in scale, including vased arrangements, basket bouquets, plants, and planters. Orchid plants are particularly popular for their their exquisite, long-lasting blooms, and basket planters are also a very popular, long-lasting gift. Sympathy expressions delivered to the funeral home or service typically range from $100 to $300. For gifts to the home or office, $100 to $150 is more common.

Sympathy Flower Arrangements for the Funeral Service
Flowers are an important aspect of most funerals, providing a comforting diversion, something to talk above, and a more comfortable overall environment, as well as paying tribute to the deceased. Flowers sent to the funeral itself are typically more elaborate than sympathy gifts sent to the home or office. Funeral service arrangements are often larger displays, sometimes set on tripod stands referred to as easels, and arranged in a spray pattern or shaped as a heart or wreath. These floral pieces are usually one sided and are more easily seen in the wider viewing area provided by the funeral parlor. These expressions of sympathy are delivered addressed to the name of the deceased and are a more public expression of condolences and respect. Our sympathy flower arrangements for the funeral service are delivered by local florists who work closely with local funeral homes and coordinate delivery times most appropriately.
Sympathy Gifts to the Home
While some people may associate sympathy flowers almost exclusively with funeral and memorial services, they are equally appropriate and popular for delivery to the home. In fact, many floral senders and recipients find that an expression of sympathy sent to the home a few days or a week after the funeral is often particularly appreciated because it reminds the recipient of ongoing thoughts and support during the grieving process. While flower arrangements sent as sympathy gifts to the home tend to be smaller in scale than those sent to the funeral, nothing lifts the spirits of the bereaved like a lovely assortment of fresh and fragrant blooms. Plant gifts also make excellent sympathy gifts for the home. Even when a charity has been identified for financial contributions, most people agree that flowers and plants are still an appropriate way to express your support more personally.
Sympathy flowers help soften the sorrow and express what mere words can not. So, share your heartfelt condolences and support with thoughtful sympathy flowers delivered to the funeral or family home. And remember, sympathy expressions can often be just as important days or weeks after the funeral, too. For more funeral flowers and sympathy expressions, see
