Sending Flowers to the Bereaved

Sending flowers with a condolence letter is a gentle yet effective way to show your support to a grieving family. Flowers offer comfort and convey thoughtfulness. They look beautiful and their colors can uplift a person’s spirit. We at Gallagher Funeral Home have seen how comforting it can be to have flowers at a funeral service.

Aspects to Keep In View While Sending Flowers

However, when you are sending flowers to someone who is grieving the death of a love done, there are some things to keep in view, such as:

  • Make sure you send fresh flowers and purchase ones that are in season. Florists are knowledgeable and they will guide you on the seasonal flowers you can send.
     
  • Flowers have a limited lifespan and will wither away and die within a matter of days. On the other hand, if you send a small flowering plant, it can stay alive for a long time. Some popular potted flowers that you can send as condolences include gardenias, white azaleas, and orchids. You can also give them a booklet with the potted plants, with instructions on how to care for them. These types of flowers are an excellent option, because they offer comfort and are a living memory.
     
  • Different flowers indicate different things and when you want to express your support and condolences, you need to choose the right flowers. Ask the florist for their inputs. They will also be able to put together a unique bouquet of flowers for you to give to the bereaved family.

Flowers are a good way to show your support to those who are grieving and mourning the loss of a family member. If you need any assistance on funeral-related matters or want information about our services call Gallagher Funeral Home today.
