Need help writing the card message sent with your flowers?

When you are sending flowers, our local florist will include your personal message hand-written (or printed) on a note card. The card is small, so your message should be short and sweet. Be sure to include your name so your recipient knows who is sending the gift. It is not always easy to write a heartfelt message that expresses how you feel, especially at a time of sorrow so we have written some card suggestions for different occasions:

Get Well Soon Wishes

If you know the recipient well enough (and you know they’ll appreciate it!), a little humor is sometimes just the thing to brighten someone’s day in the hospital. However, if your colleague is the serious sort or you’re not very close, it’s safer to stick with more formal sentiments. Don't use cliches like, "There must be a reason." These well-known phrases have hardly any meaning, seem insincere, and can offend the ill person.
  • I am sorry you are not feeling well. I am praying for you to have a complete and quick recovery
  • Get well soon. Feel better. We miss you!
  • If I told you to "Get Well Soon," it wouldn't be soon enough. Get Well Now.
  • Hope your recovery is a speedy one. We miss you!
  • Sending loads of love your way for a speedy recovery!
  • Our thoughts are with you. Get well soon! Thinking of you.
  • Hope your surgery [GOES/WENT] well, and that your recovery is quick!
  • Heard that you've been under the weather. Hope things clear up soon.

Sympathy Messages

Most people have a fear that they are going to upset or offend the person who will receive their sympathy words. Anxiety sets in as you try to find the correct sympathy card wording.Don't use phrases like "I know what you are going through" - the reason is that you probably don't know what the person is going through, and even if you do it can come across as minimizing the suffering and pain the receiving person is feeling. Below we offer more suitable choices for your sympathy message...
  • Please accept these flowers and hear the words we are not able to speak
  • With my deepest sympathy
  • You are in my thoughts and prayers
  • With love to you and your family
