It’s never easy to have to comfort a friend or relative who has experienced a loss. Many people are unsure how to express their sympathy, especially as trends regarding how Americans commemorate a loved one’s departure change. There is one thing that you can count on: flowers are always an appropriate and comforting way to show your family member or friend that you care, are thinking of them, and want them to know that you’re there for them.
If someone you know in Philadelphia has lost someone important to them, you can show your love and support with sympathy flowers from Ode à la Rose.
A flower arrangement is a beautiful way to honor a beautiful life. You have a variety of styles to choose from when you’re looking for the best way to express your sympathy. Our florists are experienced and talented and will be happy to make suggestions if you need guidance.
Floral baskets, wreaths, flower sprays, dish gardens, traditional flower arrangements, and bespoke designs are all strong options. The best choice depends on a few factors, including how well you know the person and the intended location. Decide whether you want to send the flowers to a Northern Liberties funeral home to be displayed during the service or straight to the recipient’s home near Penn’s Landing as a private message of comfort.
Different types of flowers have different meanings, so you’ll want to be sensitive to this fact when choosing your sympathy flowers in Philly. Lilies are a classic selection as they symbolize innocence restored to the soul of the departed. Choose white lilies to represent purity and majesty or white stargazer lilies as a specific expression of sympathy. Gladioli are beautiful in fan sprays, which are elegant arrangements for traditional services. This flower embodies sincerity and strength of character. Carnations are another suitable flower for sympathy, with the white variety standing for innocence and pure love. These are just a few possibilities; feel free to ask our florists for advice.
From their beauty to their color and scent, flowers add grace to any room and bring comfort to recipients. There are a few things to keep in mind to ensure that your flower delivery is thoughtful, considerate, and conscious of the family’s time and emotions. You may choose to send your flowers to your recipient’s Philadelphia home, to their place of worship, or to the funeral home in time for the service. Some people even choose to send flowers to the person’s Old City apartment or rowhome continually over several months as a reminder of their concern and love.
You may also choose to send flowers as a group. Some groups of people such as families and coworkers can pool their resources and send a larger, nicer display. If the list of senders is long, it is appropriate to identify them on the card as a group with a label such as “The Smith Family” or “The Marketing Department, (name of business).” You may also choose to send a card later that has been signed by each member of the group.
What if the bereaved has requested that you make contributions to a Philly-area charity in lieu of flowers? You should take your cue from the request, contributing to the charity mentioned, but feel free to send flowers too. If you wish to make the recipient aware that you did fulfill their request to donate, you can mention it in the note that accompanies the flowers: “We remembered John with a contribution to (name of charity).”
It may be difficult to know what to say to someone who is dealing with a significant loss, but flowers are an expression of thoughtfulness that brings a touch of beauty and comfort to a sad occasion. At Ode à la Rose, we understand the importance of accurately conveying your sentiment through meaning and presentation. You can be sure that your recipient will receive beautiful and appropriate flowers anywhere along the Schuylkill that have been lovingly arranged by skilled and experienced florists.
