Sympathy Flowers

Sympathy and Funeral Flowers

After the death of a close friend or family member, those in mourning need a support system of people comforting and nurturing them through one of life’s most painful episodes. Most of us are anxious to find some way to help soon after we hear the news of someone's passing. Nothing is more appropriate than the age-old tradition of sending sympathy flowers. Grief therapists agree that the rituals surrounding death, aid the grieving process. However, if no funeral service held, it does not mean that there should be no show of sympathy. In instances where there is no funeral service, experts recommend sending floral condolences to the homes of the bereaved. 

Changing trends in how we commemorate deaths in this country has added some confusion about traditional funeral customs and funeral etiquette. Flowers have traditionally been sent to the funeral home for display during the viewing/visitation and funeral serviceHowever, if no service held, it does not mean that there should be no show of sympathy. In instances where there is no service, experts recommend sending condolences to the homes of the bereaved.

Cremations: Urns and cremation boxes accentuated with appropriate floral tributes. A small wreath or garland for these containers is necessary and incorporated into a larger beautiful arrangement. An array of coordinating baskets and sprays placed around the box. When ashes scattered on water, sympathy wreaths, flowers, and flower petals tossed onto the water's surface.

Memorials: Places of significance, such as the podium where readings performed, a table displaying remembrances such as photos or special mementos and even a cemetery monument, can be adorned with flowers. Depending on the particular focal area, garlands, sympathy arrangements in vases or baskets and sympathy sprays are all appropriate choices. Just as flowers add softness and warmth to the surroundings, live plants displayed around an area can create a peaceful garden setting. You can send dish gardens and plants to the homes of family members of the deceased. Chrysanthemums or flowering shrubs such as azaleas are also good choices.

Ceremonial placement: A tragic death sometimes are memorialized near the site where it occurred. Trees, markers, fences or other objects in the area adorned with floral decorations, such as garlands, wreaths or bouquets. Often attendees will place individual stems of flowers like roses at the ceremonial location.

It is considered proper funeral etiquette to send flowers to family members of the deceased at their residences. In fact, it is appropriate to send flowers, plants and sympathy gifts up to a month after the funeral services. Some people prefer to send funeral flowers at a later date. Although the initial outpouring of compassion is a great comfort, eventually the chaos subsides. At this point, many people feel lost and alone.
