Sending flowers with a condolence card is a kind and polite way to express your sympathies to a bereaved family. Flowers provide solace; they are visually attractive, and their vibrant colors enliven the spirit. We at Sholom Chapel have witnessed firsthand how comforting having a variety of flowers during a funeral ceremony can be.

When Sending Flowers, Keep the Following in Mind

When giving flowers to a bereaved person, various factors must be considered, including the following:

  • Make sure that you purchase flowers that are in season. Florists are skilled and can provide guidance on the best fresh flowers for the season.
  • Blooms have a short life expectancy and may wither within a few days. If you deliver a small flowering plant, it will thrive for a long amount of time. Classic potted flowers to offer as condolences include gardenias, azaleas, and orchids. Additionally, you should present them with a booklet that details how and when to properly care for them. These are excellent choices since they provide both comfort and living memory.
  • Different flowers communicate differently, and if you really want to display your concern, you must select suitable flowers. Ask the florist for their input. They will design a one-of-a-kind bouquet for you to give to the bereaved family.
  • Flowers are an excellent way to express your condolences to those who have lost a family member. Additionally, you can bring flowers to the burial ceremony, and a range of blossoms are available. Additionally, you may mix and match flowers that complement one another.
