From Our Customers
"I just placed an online order for a sympathy arrangement from Flowers to be delivered tomorrow. I spoke to Michelle and she said she only does sympathy and funeral arrangements. She was very helpful and I just wanted to sing her praises. She was very personable and by her demeanor it was obvious that she takes pride in her job. Michelle definitely personifies what 1800Flowers is all about. Her good work is noticed and appreciated."

Sympathy flowers are usually floral arrangements that are prepared by florists and delivered to the home of the grieving family. Sending sympathy flowers is a beautiful way to show how much you care during this difficult time. Not only do they express sympathy for the family, they can celebrate the life of the person who has passed away. Sympathy flowers and gift cards are often ranked as some of the most meaningful gifts by those who have lost a friend or family member. Flowers are definitely an excellent choice for providing some beauty at this most somber of times.

White Sympathy Flowers

Giving sympathy flowers allows you to express your own personality and feelings while providing a thoughtful gift. Arrangements come in a variety of styles, containers and colors. All-white sympathy flowers are some of the most popular arrangements as the color white is associated with respect, elegance and sophistication. Choosing the all-white lily bouquet allows you to show your admiration for the deceased with a beautiful arrangement, as well as providing a rich fragrance that fills the air. Traditional bouquets of all white roses express tributes with understated elegance.

Colorful Sympathy Flowers

Color can be added to the sympathy flowers by either choosing an arrangement made from colorful blooms, or choosing a container with color. White bouquets can also be enhanced by the addition of some color. You could also select an arrangement with stunning white lilies, light pink roses and a deep green leaf ribbon lined vase. Adding blue colors to your sympathy flowers provides a feeling of calm, comfort and faith to your gift.
