What kind of message should I write on a sympathy card with flowers?

Finding the right words to express to someone grieving is always difficult, but a personalised message is one of the most comforting gestures you can make to help them through their heavy time. You should at least address the flowers to the recipient, and then personalise the rest of the card with any of the following messages:

  • I am deeply sorry to hear about the passing of (name of the deceased).
  • I am heartbroken/devastated/deeply saddened to hear of (name of deceased) passing.
  • Please accept my deepest/sincere sympathies/condolences.
  • You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
  • If there’s anything I can do for you, please reach out to me.
  • My favourite memory with (name of deceased) was…
  • (Name of deceased) had an unforgettable impact on my/our lives.
  • (Name of deceased) will be deeply missed.
  • I will always cherish the memories I had with (name of deceased).
  • You always have my support.

These are some simple sympathy messages suited to express your condolences for anyone’s passing, but you can customise the message to suit the recipient and how close you are to them or the deceased.

How to order funeral flowers online in Australia

In Australia, you can easily order sympathy or funeral flowers in store or online. You can take a look at the website or the floral range in person for pre-arranged arrangements or to create your own personalised ones.

When making your order, you will need to decide whether you want a:

  • Bouquet
  • Vase
  • Casket spray
  • Wreath
  • Heart
  • Cross

You will also need to consider the colours you would like, how many arrangements, and if you want a message to go with it. It’s best to know where to send it before you order as well, whether that be a funeral home, church, or wherever the service is to be held.

When should I order sympathy or funeral flowers?

If you’re just giving sympathy flowers, they can generally be ordered for same or next day delivery, and they can be sent anytime, but preferably whenever you hear of the news of the passing.

Funeral flowers will generally require more notice, especially for more elaborate designs and if you are ordering several arrangements. It’s best to enquire as soon as possible and order at least a few days before, so you can be sure the flowers will be delivered in time for the service.
