Sending flowers along with a thoughtful condolence note is a simple way to express your support to grieving family members. Different types of flowers convey thoughtfulness, empathy, and comfort. They look beautiful, are calming, and can help alleviate some of the grief that people feel when they lose someone close to them. At Tindall Funeral Home, we know that the right types of flowers can be incredibly comforting to those in mourning.

Things to Consider When Sending Flowers To The Bereaved

There are certain things you must keep in view when sending flowers to those who are grieving the loss of the loved one:

  • Send fresh, seasonal flowers. Discuss your requirements with a knowledgeable florist; they will guide you on the flowers you can choose and let you know which ones are best suited to the occasion.
  • Flowers are perishable, some more than others and may wither in a few days. You can also consider sending a small flowering plant instead as it will last for a longer time. Orchids, azaleas, and gardenias are some popular potted flowering plants you can send. Give the grieving family a small booklet on how to care for the plants and these can be a comfort to them during a difficult time.
  • Different flowers denote different things. When expressing your condolences and support, you must pick the right flowers and arrangements. As mentioned earlier, discuss your requirements with the florist and they will guide you in the right direction. They will also tell you which flowers are in season and which ones you can mix and match.

Flowers are an excellent way to show your empathy and support to people in mourning Contact us at Tindall Funeral Home through our online form or call (315) 468-5521 if you would like to learn more about our pre-planning services and need advice.
