Sympathy flowers are among the most popular choices of sending your condolences to someone who recently experienced a death in his or her family. If a friend recently lost a mother, sister or another female relative, lavender bouquets may be a lovely option to send to the person's house. These purple flowers are light enough to offer peace and tranquility, but also stand out enough to celebrate the full life the recently deceased person lived. Purple flowers like roses, daisies and lilacs can be crafted into sophisticated collections that will impress the family who receives them. From gift baskets to vases and potted plants, there is certainly some way for everyone to tell a friend "I'm sorry for your loss."
