When someone passes away there are often no words to convey our feelings of sympathy and sorrow or the empathy we feel for our friend or relative who has lost someone close to them.

To give flowers to someone in their hour of grief is a thoughtful and caring act and the recipient will take great comfort from this gesture. Flowers serve as a beacon of hope and say everything we need to and more – but there is etiquette involved.

To avoid a flower faux pas, here’s what you need to know when sending or giving flowers to express condolences: First of all, there is a difference between flowers to express condolences and funeral flowers. Not a lot of people know this, but flowers to express condolences tend to be in light shades and quite simple in shape and design, whereas funeral flowers are bolder and more dramatic with the purpose being to remember the person and celebrate their life.

It is thoughtful to send flowers to express condolences either to the grieving family, so they can display them at the wake next to the coffin or to the funeral home where they will also make a welcome addition. It’s also considerate to send the relative a bouquet sometime after the funeral, especially if they are a close friend of yours. It lets them know you still care and are there for them as they come to terms with life without the person who has died.

Keep in mind though that you should never send yellow roses to anyone in mourning as it is associated with feelings of joy and happiness which are not the sentiments you want to express at this time.

Sweet sentiments

Any bouquet will be well received, and your sympathy gesture will have been made, but what about making a lasting impression with a planter which will serve as a lasting memory sent in honour of the deceased?

While good florists can advise you on appropriate bouquets to send in sympathy, it’s also a nice idea to add in some of your own choices to make it more bespoke and personal. It doesn’t always have to be a standalone bouquet either, so why don’t you accompany your floral tribute with a hamper or another thoughtful gift designed to help a loved one through their difficult time?
