Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between sympathy & funeral flowers?
Funeral flowers are sent to the funeral service and tend to be larger in size and scale. They include baskets, standing sprays, and wreaths make great pieces because theystand out in a room full of other floral pieces and people. Plant arrangements and orchids also make great pieces that can be taken home by the family after the funeral and enjoyed for much longer.
Sympathy arrangements are typically sent to someone's residence as a gesture of love, comfort, thoughts, prayers, etc. This is typically a vase arrangement but can also be a plant arrangement or orchid. Baskets can also be sent to a residence for a larger statement.
How much should I spend on sympathy and/or funeral flowers?
The larger arrangements for visitations and ceremonies typically start around $150. Smaller arrangements may get lost in a room full of large floral pieces and people. That being said, we believe the sentiment is what is most important and any size arrangement will be most appreciated by the family
What type of arrangement should I send?
More common arrangements are stand-alone pieces such as baskets, wreaths and standing sprays. These pieces will make their way directly to the memorial service or funeral home. The subtler, more personal, arrangements can be placed in a vase or small basket. These are great for the family to bring home and reminiscence.
Bouquets would be the least appropriate because they would need to be arranged into water and you want to be considerate of those who might be in mourning.
Are there certain types of flowers that are not appropriate to send?
Every flower, when tastefully arranged, is appropriate for expressing condolences. A funeral service is about gaining closure following death but it’s also about celebrating a person’s life and honouring their place in this world. Selecting colourful and vibrant flowers are appropriate to showcase their spirit and can add a cheerful note to an otherwise somber occasion.
What should I write on the card?
Writing a message to someone who's just lost a loved one can be hard. We often get asked for help so we've put together some advice on writing your sympathy message:
- Give yourself about 10 minutes to reflect on what you want to say and don't rush your message
- Read your message out loud before you finalize it
- Acknowledge the loss
- Let the person know you're there for them
- Share a memory, if you don't have one, share a moment of appreciation
- Offers support and let them know you're available if needed

I had been looking at other florists and May Flowers was the easiest from start to finish and had a wide array of options to choose from. I ordered at midnight on Monday and they were delivered Tuesday afternoon. The team sent me an image of what was delivered and I was very satisfied with them."

"It was a delightful experience ordering from May Flowers. I ordered flowers online from Korea for my sister's birthday who lives in Toronto and she loved it! The website was easy to use and I had zero problems placing an order and paying for it overseas online. The flower arrangement was beautiful and I love how they sent me photos of it afterwards. I am very happy to support a small independent business! I would definitely order flowers from May Flowers again. Highly recommended!"
