Funeral flowers can lend comfort on the day of the funeral service, and are often a fitting way to demonstrate your sympathies to family members and friends. From casket sprays to flowers from well-wishers, Tony Hollands Funerals can help you choose flowers to suit all budgets and tastes.
At Tony Hollands Funerals we often are asked what is the most appropriate way of sending funeral flowers to show sympathy.
Some people choose to send flowers a week or so after the funeral when the initial chaos has passed. A nice gesture is to send sympathy flowers to the family home after the funeral to remind the relatives and friends that you have not forgotten about them. And even if weeks have passed since the death, flowers are a reminder that people are still thinking of them throughout the grieving process. Sympathy flowers are addressed and sent directly to a loved one of the deceased.
A plant, sympathy food basket or small to mid-size sympathy arrangement can be sent to the home of the family members. Plants can be enjoyed for months, even years, after a funeral and can stand as a remembrance to the lost loved one. In some cases, a fruit or gourmet basket is appreciated by a family who has guests staying with them. This type of gift does is thoughtful, delivering your condolences while helping to care for family and friends.
When it comes to expressing your condolences in a classic manner, nothing is more elegant than a mix of all-white flowers. White flowers have long represented reverence and humility, while also sending a message of loyalty.
Keep in mind that a sympathy arrangement doesn't necessarily have to be dark and sombre. During this time, you can help remind the family to celebrate the life that was lived. Flowers add fragrance, colour, and beauty to an otherwise sombre atmosphere and provide a comforting diversion. Any number of floral arrangements are a welcome gesture.
