Funeral and Sympathy Flowers

Having flowers at a funeral is a long standing tradition. Today flowers are sent to a funeral as a way to visually express love, respect, and the pain of mourning for the deceased. They are also sent to show support of those grieving. Flowers bring warmth and beauty to a service.

There are many types of arrangements that can be sent to a funeral. You can choose from vase arrangements, standing sprays, and maches.


The more personal flowers are usually sent by family members and those closer to the deceased. These could be a casket piece or urn wreath.

Whether a wreath, spray, or vase arrangement there are many styles and flowers to choose from. They can be traditional all whites or bright and vibrant to represent the deceased’s personality. They are often traditional to the deceased’s culture as well.

Sympathy flowers can be sent to the home of the family of the deceased instead of being sent to the service. These flowers should have less of a funeral look and feel. Usually a vase arrangement, these are meant to show support of those who have suffered the loss.

An other option is to send a plant or memorial garden. These living memorials are a touching gift of hope and renewal during a difficult time. These can be sent to the service or to the home of a loved one.

Four Seasons Flowers carries a variety of beautiful and tasteful sympathy flower arrangements, plants, and memorial gardens all available for delivery to funeral homes, churches, or the house of a grieving loved one. We offer sympathy flower delivery throughout San Diego with fresh, beautiful flowers.

Holiday Design Classes, December 2019

There’s something about the holidays that bring out the DIY-er in everyone. Some people are natural Do-It-Yourselfers, then there’s the rest of us… We try, we see great ideas on a certain website and get inspired. We go to the local craft store and spend hours getting everything on our list and “Oh yeah… I need this box of 150′ of garland, these 15 spools of ribbon, and water colors and blank cards because I’m going to hand paint every one’s cards this year!!” Hundreds of dollars later, we’re exhausted and sitting down to a holiday movie with a glass of wine sound like a way better idea at the moment. We’ll get to crafting tomorrow. Tomorrow we pull everything out and realize “Oh no!!! I forgot a hot glue gun!!!”. Back to the craft store… Two hours and $150 later we’re back at home ready to DIY, Baby!!!

We’re cutting. We’re gluing. We’re making something that doesn’t look anything like the picture we saw. “How did they get this to do that?!”. “It looked so much easier on the video…”

Ready for a better idea? Grab a few friends or family members and head out to breakfast on a Saturday morning. After breakfast go to an hour long floral design class. At the class you’ll learn how to design a wreath or holiday centerpiece. An actual floral designer will be teaching the class. She will be able to guide you, inspire you, encourage you, and answer your questions. There’s no stress. There’s no spending extra money on items you’ll never use and will just donate later. There’s no clean up. You just show up!!! The best part? You can still say “I made that!” to your friends and family when they are admiring your handy work.

Four Seasons flowers just had a wonderful Fall Center Piece class. It was made with a combination of dried flowers and fresh cut flowers. Gold painted succulents and white miniature pumpkins really gave it that fall look.

Four Seasons Flowers is offering a holiday wreath class and a holiday center piece class. Both will be a great chance to make a beautiful decorative element for your holiday decor.

Mental Health and Flowers

There has been an abundance of talk about the importance of mental health lately, as there should be. We watch what we eat. We work out. We park further away from the store to get extra steps in. We eat organic foods. We cut back on carbs. We drink more water. We get more sleep…well, we mean to… We do all of these things to lead healthier lives. What we need to realize is our mental health is just as important as our physical health, if not more. Meditation, travel, actually relaxing on your day off, all of these help your mental health. They give your brain a chance to recharge. Getting the care and support you need is so important as well. Never hesitate to find counseling for your mental health.

You can start working on your mental health at home. Clear out any clutter. Paint your walls in calm, soothing colors. Create a space where you can have down time to unplug and unwind. Bring in plants to freshen the air. Plants clear toxins from the air and create oxygen…we all learned that in middle school science right?

It is also proven that fresh flowers bring health and happiness to our lives. Bringing flower arrangements into your home or giving them to others can reduce depression and anxiety. They can enhance memory and give a room a positive feeling, making patients heal faster physically as well as mentally.

It’s amazing what bringing a bit of nature into your home, whether it be a plant or a bouquet of flowers can do. Four Seasons Flowers has a wonderful selection of flower arrangements and plants to brighten up your space. Contact us to order an arrangement, plant, or dish garden at 1-858-484-7700 , on our site www.mysandiegoflowers.com , or come in to our beautiful shop.

You can take one of our offered Fall or Holiday classes and learn how to create an arrangement of your own. We also do private classes, then you can share the fun and health benefits with your friends and family!
