Sympathy Flowers

The Dees’ Nursery At Oceanside, NY,

Offers A Collection of Sympathy Flowers For Those In Need Of Comfort…

Giving flowers is the most common way to express condolences, emotional support, and respect. However, it can be difficult, especially if this is your first time. Here are some things to consider when giving flowers for funerals and sympathy:

Things To

Choosing Appropriate Flowers

It’s important to opt for varieties commonly associated with sympathy and funerals. Lilies, roses, chrysanthemums, and carnations are considered respectful and comforting choices. It’s best to avoid overly vibrant or cheerful flowers, as they may not align with the occasion’s solemnity.

Cultural or Religious Preferences

Consider the cultural or religious customs of the deceased and their family. Different cultures and religions may have specific flower preferences or symbolic meanings. For example, white lilies are commonly associated with funerals in many Western cultures, while chrysanthemums hold significance in Asian cultures.

Choosing Suitable Arrangements

Opt for tasteful and elegant floral arrangements such as standing sprays, wreaths, floral baskets, or vases. These arrangements are designed to be displayed during the funeral service or at the family’s home. Consider the size and portability of the arrangement, as it may need to be transported easily.

Including Heartfelt Messages

Attach a sympathy card or a note with a heartfelt message to express your condolences. Keep the message brief, sensitive, and supportive. Acknowledge the loss, offer comfort, and let the family know you are there for them during this difficult time.

Ensuring Timely Delivery

Ensure that the flowers are delivered in a timely manner. It’s customary to have the flowers delivered directly to the funeral home or the family’s residence before the funeral service or visitation begins. If you’re unable to attend the service, consider sending the flowers to the family’s home as a thoughtful gesture.
