Your thoughtful gift, presented in a handled basket, can be moved from room to room as the mood strikes. It is a nice gesture to cheer up someone who has suffered a loss, you just may make them smile. Studies show that when there are fragrant fresh flowers in the home people feel less worried and have fewer periods of anxiety or depression. Also receiving flowers has an almost immediate positive effect on our moods, so sending a colorful array of fragrant sympathy blooms in a basket is a good choice.
Don't worry, there is no set time period for sending a sympathy flower basket to a friend or colleague. They will still be in mourning long after the funeral service is over, so let them know that you are still thinking of them with a basket of sympathy flowers.
