If you are sending condolence flowers to the family at home, then we highly recommend sending a vox bouquet. Your flowers will be delivered in water, including flower food. A vox is extremely easy for the bereaved family to look after in this busy and stressful time. They will also run out of vases very quickly, so sending flowers in a vox box (portable vase) is the perfect answer. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness and notice how long your flowers lasted.
Our florists also recommend sending your condolences with a floral arrangement.
Easy to look after blooms: To care for an arrangement of sympathy flowers, add water daily.
A condolence bouquet could be in soft and subtle shades, or bright and cheery flowers to celebrate the life of the deceased, there is no right or wrong approach, the choice is up to you.
The best advice is to select a sympathy gift you think the family will appreciate, and in colours that remind you of them.
Writing your card message is one of the hardest things to sort when sending bereavement flowers. Our florists advise writing from the heart, and perhaps share a personal memory of the deceased. Don't forget to sign your card - it can cause discomfort for the family, if they don't know who sent the flowers.
Best Blooms has written a helpful guide for writing your card messages. You'll find easy sympathy card messages, quotes and nice sayings to send your condolences.
Sending a pot plant is a very thoughtful and kind sympathy gesture. Orchid Plants or Peace Lilies can last for years, and often come into flower again on the anniversary of their passing, making them an even more poignant gift of rememberance.
To send flowers to an Auckland funeral, the most popular sympathy gift would be to send a vox bouquet or sheaf of flowers. This gives the family the choice afterwards to take the flowers home, or donate the bouquet to hospice, a hospital ward or rest home in memory of their loved one.
In New Zealand wreaths of flowers are traditionally sent to the funeral itself and not to the home.
A funeral wreath is usually sent by absent family members, or groups, organisations and workplaces as a more formal gesture of remembrance and Tribute. There is rich symbolism in sending a floral wreath, as it is an unbroken symbol of love and respect.
To get flowers delivered to the funeral on time - Information we need for your order: Name of the deceased, Place & time of the funeral service, (funeral directors if you have that information). We can deliver sympathy & funeral flowers to South Auckland, West Auckland, City & Central suburbs, delivery to the North Shore & East Auckland.
