When going through the loss of a loved one, sending custom sympathy flowers to the family is a beautiful gesture that will celebrate their life, show how much you care, and lend comfort at the same time. The floral team at Peoples Flowers is always ready to discuss and design an arrangement that will honor the decedent in a meaningful way, including favorite flowers or colors designed a poignant display. While there are many options available when it comes to sending sympathy flowers for a celebration of life, some things to consider are what type of arrangement to send, and when and where to send it. Traditionally, arrangements that include gladioli, roses, lilies, and carnations are used for sympathy flowers, but any flower that has a special meaning will be appropriate.
It is considered customary that the immediate family of the deceased – such as a spouse, sibling, or child – choose the official funeral flowers, casket sprays, or urn flowers.
If you choose to send flowers to the memorial service itself, formal arrangements such as standing sprays, crosses, or wreaths are a good choice. You can choose to personalize these custom sympathy flowers with a banner that represents your connection, or perhaps with colors of their favorite sports teams.
You can also send floor arrangements and flower baskets which can then be easily transferred to the family home after services are over.
Our Bright Memories arrangement featured above, is a traditional display of custom sympathy flowers that includes bright gladioli, roses, mums, daisies and larkspur.
You may choose to send the flowers directly to the family’s home. This is appropriate if you have a personal connection to the family, or are sending flowers a few days or weeks after services are concluded. A beautiful bouquet, flower basket, or even a green plant will be appreciated. You may even wish to consider a gourmet gift basket or condolence gift, such as our memorial wind chimes.
The Serenity Vase, seen here, provides a peaceful monochromatic arrangement of white hydrangea, larkspur, lilies, and gladioli.
