When we think of sympathy flowers, we often think of the big wreaths and standing arrangements that are present at the funeral service. If you are looking to send something personal to the home of someone who is grieving the loss of their loved one, a large arrangement can overwhelm a personal home. Likewise, if your office wants to give a coworker sympathy flowers at work, a small, tasteful arrangement is in order. Here are a few of our favorite sympathy flowers for the home and office:
The lily is the classic symbol of purity and simplicity. Available in 6, 8 or 10-stem bouquets, this elegant arrangement is a subtle way to let someone know that you are thinking about them in their time of grief. The bouquet comes arranged in a white ceramic vase, adorned with a silver cross. This is a versatile bouquet because it is modest enough to send to someone’s home, or give a coworker at the office, but it is also a great option if you are looking for an arrangement to send to a funeral home or church.
Keeping within the symbolism of the lily, this beautiful peace lily plant is a wonderful option if you are opting to shy away from flowers. These plants come nestled in a beautiful white ceramic planter with a white ribbon that says, “comfort.” This lovely lily features a serene white blossom, accompanied by contrasting dark green leaves, for a beautiful, eye-catching look.
Orchids are unmatched in their ability to bring simple elegance to any space they inhabit. This pristine, white phalaenopsis orchid plant stands gracefully in a white ceramic pot. It is the ultimate symbol of love and peace and the perfect choice to convey sympathy. The orchid is a potted plant and so will live as long as it is cared for, making it a beautiful way for those who are grieving to remember their lost loved one.
While finding the perfect bouquet to convey sympathy can be a tough and delicate process, the sentiment is always appreciated. Whether you choose a simple orchid or a full bouquet, the recipient will feel comforted to know that you are thinking of them.
