How to Select Sympathy Flowers: Tips From a Cincinnati Funeral Home, Cincinnati, Ohio

If someone you know has recently passed away, sending your condolences through flowers or a gift is a gesture that demonstrates your sympathy and support for the family of the deceased. There are many options for sympathy flowers, so it can be overwhelming to determine which one is best to send. Renfro Funeral Services in Cincinnati, OH, not only provides funeral planning services, but they also offer flower arrangements and gifts through The Sympathy Store.

Here are some useful tips for choosing the right sympathy flowers:

  • Arrangement Types: For sympathy wishes, it’s common to send funeral baskets, bouquets, or standing sprays. The standing spray is typically a large arrangement that will be displayed in the funeral home. It can also be shaped into a wreath. Bouquets and baskets are nice to send and can also be set out on display during services.

  • The Flowers: Lilies, roses, gladioli, and carnations are all popular choices for sympathy flowers. Each flower type holds a different meaning so choose one that best fits your feelings. Lilies represent innocence, and roses signify love. Gladioli are a sign of integrity, and carnations show admiration and remembrance.
  • Price: Standing sprays can cost around $75, but once you begin to incorporate more exotic flowers, the price can go up. Prices can vary significantly for baskets and bouquets, so determine a price that’s comfortable for you. Many florists offer arrangements at different price increments to provide you with plenty of options.
