Sympathy Tributes

In a time of grief, sympathy flowers and plants can often help convey the feelings that words cannot.  Nancy's Floral offers a wide selection of flowers, plants, and other meaningful gifts that will express your message of sympathy and thoughtfulness.  Here is a general guide on what type of arrangements, plants and other sympathy gifts are suitable, given your relationship to the deceased and to the family. 

For Immediate Family members sending to the Funeral Service:
If the loss is an immediate family member it is traditional to send larger pieces like a heart spray or wreath spray, large floral standing spray, a large standing floral cross spray, or a casket spray (if you are a spouse or adult child for a parent). Often family members may send one large piece from several siblings or a combination of pieces.  Ribbon script can be added to represent the relationship to the family member - i.e.. "Mother" | "Loving Grandmother" etc., but should be kept to a minimum as to not detract from the floral or plant gift.

For Friends Sending to the Funeral Service:
Friends generally send standing sprays, Memory Garden Planters and garden baskets that are placed on display for the funeral service.

For Coworkers Sending to the Funeral Service:
Coworkers will generally send the gift as a group. Appropriate sympathy floral arrangements for the service would be a standing spray, Memory Garden Planter or Craftsman Box Planter, garden basket, or fireside basket.

For Friends Sending a Sympathy Gift to the Home:
If you are unable to attend the services, it is usually appropriate to send a gesture of sympathy to the surviving family's home.  The most popular choices for a sympathy gift to the home include vase arrangements of elegant flowers, basket arrangements or blooming plants, Memory Garden Planters or Fruit & Gourmet Baskets.

For Coworkers Sending a Sympathy Gift to the Home:
Depending on your relationship, a large greeting card expressing your thoughts and feelings is appropriate. If you work closely to the individual, sending a floral basket arrangement, European planted basket, dish garden, Memory Garden Planter, Craftsman Box Planter, green plant, blooming plant or Fruit & Gourmet Basket are tasteful selections.
