Sympathy Flowers and Funeral Flowers

Sympathy flowers and funeral flowers will help you to express the sense of loss you feel at this moment in time and hopefully help you to find comfort in the poems and prose on these pages.

Sympathy flowers help you reach out to the family of the bereaved and offer a channel for you to express your feelings and offer comfort. The small card normally attached to the sympathy flowers carries your words and lets the family know that they are not alone in their darkest hour.
It is often very comforting for the family to know that they are not forgotten, especially in the weeks after the funeral service. There are so many things that need to be done immediately prior to the funeral that it is sometimes very difficult for close family members to ‘think’.
After the funeral, there is often a sense of release and to the outside world everything appears to return to a form of ‘normality’ but this quiet time allows those closest to the deceased space to reflect and grieve.
Sympathy flowers sent in the following weeks can help with the grieving process. It is often comforting for them to know that they are not forgotten or alone.

Funeral Flowers often the most meaningful of gifts can help pay tribute to someone’s life by reflecting an aspect of their character – Their favourite colour, in the shape of an emblem or symbol of a favourite club or pastime. It is also popular to personalise the display with their name.
Funeral flowers can range from large coffin sprays to quite intimate single flower stems. The florist should be able to help with points of etiquette by ensuring they arrive in plenty of time for the service.
