Online Florists Make it Easy to Send Sympathy Gifts in Times of Grief

March 10, 2010

When someone passes on, you might have a difficult time finding the right words to say to their loved ones. Sending flowers is a thoughtful, sympathetic gesture to comfort those who were closest to the deceased. Hand-delivered flowers from a local florist will speak volumes in your stead.

Thankfully, even if the news of someone’s passing comes when you’re too busy to visit a local florist, you can now order sympathy flowers online. Florists on the Internet provide local hand delivery of your bereavement flower gift. You’ll be able to visit the website of an online florist that’s local to your area and browse or search the website for the sympathy flowers of your choice. Then select to have the flower arrangement delivered to your recipient’s doorstep.

For the recipient’s home, order flowers arranged in a lovely wicker basket with white carnations, roses and larkspur. These are sure to brighten their home and cheer their heart. Lilies, daisies, azaleas and violets also make beautiful sympathy flower arrangements. If you’d prefer to send a green plant, order a beautiful fern or spathiphyllum plant. Or, have a fruit and flower basket delivered to the home where the family will be gathering. Fruit helps ease the burden of having to entertain visiting friends and family during times of grief.

Most local florists also offer bereavement flower delivery directly to funeral homes. Fresh flower sprays, casket sprays and funeral wreaths in a variety of colors can be handpicked at the website of a local online florist. You can specify which funeral home to deliver to, and include a note stating your name and well wishes.

Flower shops online provide convenience if you live in another town and are unable to attend the funeral. Order online flowers from anywhere in the world by typing in the name of the city and the word “florist.” For instance, if you’re in San Diego, California and the funeral is taking place in Cincinnati, Ohio…simply type these words into a search field on the Web: Cincinnati florist or Cincinnati flower shop. Order flowers and specify where in Cincinnati (loved one’s home or funeral home) they are to be delivered. You can order flowers online from home, the office, or any location if you own a laptop with an Internet connection.

Choose an online florist that’s an FTD member to enjoy prompt, high quality service. You’ll find that most florists provide flowers for all occasions, including wedding flowers, Christmas arrangements, birthday gifts, baby shower gifts, etc. Sympathy flowers by an online florist will make it a little easier to encourage hearts and offer serenity in a time of grief. The next time tragedy strikes, you’ll be able to buy flowers at a moment’s notice without ever leaving the home or office.
