When wanting to show sympathy to someone in a time of need, one of our first reactions is to buy flowers. If you are like most people, however, the process of choosing which flowers to send is incredibly difficult. You want to send the right message and you want the arrangement to fit the situation, but you just don’t know which ones are right. If you struggle with this issue, you are not alone, but we will help make it easier for you.
There are many good options for flower choices when you want to send your condolences and support to a friend or family member that is grieving. People tend to stray towards thinking they need to choose flowers that are not bright and colorful, but that is not always the case. Or, they choose which flowers to send strictly off their appearance. However, sending flowers can communicate on a deeper level than just choosing an attractive looking arrangement. Each type of flower holds a different meaning and knowing the meaning of the flowers can help you arrange a bouquet that communicates the exact sentiment that you want to convey.
A few types of flowers that are typically used include roses, lilies, and carnations. The flowers are not only frequently used because of their popularity, but what they stand for. Red roses can be used to convey a message of love and respect. Lilies communicate sympathy and purity, while carnations hold a meaning of remembrance and admiration.
