All our Sympathy Flower Arrangements have been selected and arranged by our florists to help you send an appropriate and sensitive message. Understated flowers in soft pastels, white and cream are the most traditional flowers to send during a time of loss, so most of our sympathy bouquets feature these colours.
If you are looking for the symbolic meaning behind specific blooms when sending sympathy flowers, please see the information below:
Lilies: Oriental Lilies are commonly linked with funerals and sympathy, and are said to symbolise resurrection and the restored innocence of a departed soul. Lily bouquets send not only a message of sympathy, but also one of hope and new beginnings. White Lilies in particular are a very appropriate choice.
Roses: All roses carry the meaning of love, and are included in many condolence flowers for this reason. White Roses and Cream Roses symbolise purity and hope, and have also come to signify remembrance due to their association with heaven.
Chrysanthemums: In many cultures, chrysanthemums are associated with the loss of a loved one, and will show that you understand their grief.
Carnations: In the language of flowers, pink carnations send the message "I will never forget you" making them an appropriate choice for a sympathy bouquet.
Alternatively, plants such as the peace lily can also be sent to show your respect.
