Sending Your Condolences with Sympathy Flowers

sympathy flowersExpressing sympathy for a loved one when someone close to them dies can be a challenge. People generally want to let their sympathy be known but they are not sure how to do it. We have found that sympathy flowers can be an excellent way to let a loved one know that they are cared for during their time of grief. Flowers help to add a little light and hope to the room, even when everyone feels consumed by sadness.

There are a variety of different types of flowers available, but we have some that we love for funerals and memorials. These flowers are rich with symbolism, ensuring that your message will be clearly delivered and that your loved one will know how much you care. Here are a few that we have helped customers find.

Gorgeous Gladiolus Blossoms

Gladiolus blossoms are very appropriate for those in mourning. They are known for their tall flower stems, which can sometimes reach up to four feet tall. The flower itself symbolizes moral integrity and having a strong character. These flowers come in a number of different colors, but we particularly enjoy these soft yellow ones. The flowers will be like a ray of hope for the recipient.


White lilies are another appropriate, gorgeous flower for the time of mourning. These flowers are used to symbolize the innocence that souls receive as they pass from this life. The lilies are also known for communicating majesty and purity. These messages work well for funerals and memorials. The beauty of these flowers will also serve as decorations in the home of the bereaved, reminding them that you care about them.

Garden of Roses

Roses always offer a simple elegance that people adore, and this basket of white roses will be perfect for expressing sympathy. The flowers themselves speak to feelings of reverence for the departed, innocence and humility. The flowers will serve spectacularly well around the funeral home, memorial or at the private residence. The brown wicker basket and the bed of ivy upon which the roses lay will further connote feelings of peace and tranquility.

Finding the right gift to say, “I’m sorry for your loss” can seem like a big obstacle. When people take the time to find the right flowers, however, they will find themselves communicating the right message. Trust us at Breen’s Florist to help you find the right arrangement for your situation.
