Advice For Buying Condolence Flowers

Advice For Buying Condolence Flowers

Dealing with a grieving family is never easy

In the same way that each person deals with grief differently so do the various cultures and belief systems that make up the multi-coloured infrastructure of the rainbow nation that cohabits this green and pleasant land. Just like you would take your shoes off when you enter a house in Sweden, so would you respect someone’s beliefs and customs when they passed away. Each country and culture around the world has their own way of dealing with grief; the Jews sit Shiva – this is the official seven day mourning period that takes place immediately after burial. In the Islamic faith the body must be buried within 48 hours. Condolence flowers and flowers of sympathy follow similar differences; each culture and religion has different colours and preferred flowers to be sent. For example in China the colour of mourning is red if the deceased is over 80, if the deceased is under 80 then the colours are sombre. The traditional funeral flower in China is a white Iris, so if you don’t want to offend the family you will send them white flowers if irises are not available or can’t be found. In most Western cultures black is the mourning colour with lilies being the preferred condolence flowers of choice.

We’re here to help you find the perfect bunch of sympathy flowers that you can send online to show solidarity and support for friends and family that are dealing with a tragic loss. One of the most important piece of advice that we can give you is to keep it simple, when buying condolence flowers. You want to keep it simple, you don’t need to send bells and whistles, just an arrangement of cream roses or pale pink gerberas will be enough to say to the family that they are in your heart and thoughts.

If you happen to be in a different part of the country or are unable to personally buy and deliver a condolence arrangement, you will obviously search for the next best solution, and NetFlorist is that best solution. Shopping online for condolence flowers is just as acceptable as delivering flowers to the family in person. NetFlorist will deliver condolence flowers to anywhere in South Africa. Whether you need to get flowers to Belleville or Durbanville NetFlorist will be able to get your messages of love and support to your friends and family.
