Because plants and baskets can last for months, they serve as a lasting reminder of your thoughtfulness and consideration. Of course, we associate flowers with memorial services and wakes, but flowers in sympathy are also an appropriate gesture when the family of the departed returns home after the service. In many cultures, a sympathy basket filled with fresh fruit and gourmet food is a way to express condolences. Traditional fruit baskets provided the family with something to offer guests during receptions and family gatherings. Send one of our sympathy gestures filled with either fresh flowers or fruit and show how much you care. Say "I'm thinking of you" with a Teleflora sympathy arrangement.
Green sympathy plants are also a beautiful sign of hope and new life. A sympathy plant shows that your heart is with them during this time of remembrance. A plant in a ceramic pot or wicker basket will be a welcome expression of comfort. All of our Teleflora sympathy flower baskets and plant baskets are personally delivered by one of our neighborhood florists. If you can't be with them after the service is over, a hand-delivered basket will make them feel as though you are near.
