How to Write the Perfect Flower Message

You’ve found the perfect flower bouquet or gift, now you just have to top it off with a personalized message. That’s the easy part right? But all of a sudden you find yourself short on words and don’t know exactly what to say to express your feelings. Don’t worry you’re not alone! Here are some tips and suggestions to writing the perfect message to accompany your next flower delivery.


Write something meaningful and make it personal.
Always sign your name! There is nothing creepier than receiving flowers from an anonymous admirer.
Make your message short but sweet, as there isn’t a ton of room on the cards.
Need to say more? Try a proper card. We have an awesome selection of Papyrus cards and can help you find the right one for your occasion.
Message Suggestions:


These messages are often the hardest to write, as grief is a delicate matter for most people. Don’t get too anxious about it though! Keep the messages brief and be sure to not minimize the person’s feelings. Heartfelt quotes can also work really well for simple sympathy messages.

Please accept these flowers and hear the words we are not able to speak. Deepest sympathies.
[Name] will always be remembered and cherished in our hearts and memories.
My/Our deepest sympathies during your time of loss. Please know that I/we are here for you.
You are in my/our thoughts and prayers during this time of grief. My/Our condolences.
Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality. – Emily Dickenson
Thinking of you during this difficult time.
We would be honoured to help you pay tribute to anyone special in your life. View our gallery of sympathy flowers


One of the most popular reasons to send flowers is to express love. These suggestions are good for anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, or just to let your loved one know you’re thinking of them. The best messages are sincere so tell them how you really feel!

Our relationship is far more special and beautiful than any flower could be. I love you.
I love you for not only who you are but also for who I am when I am with you. Happy Anniversary.
To my [wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend], my soul mate, my love, my life.
I wish there were more ways to say all that you are to me. Love always.
Here’s to another year tending to the garden of our love!

Provided you know the person well and the situation isn’t too serious, use a little humour! It can really go a long way to brighten some one’s day. For more sober occasions, try to avoid using cliches and use more formal sentiments to avoid coming across offensive or insincere.

Sending you healing thoughts and a little sunshine to brighten your day.
I/We know you’re in good hands, just don’t get too comfy! Feel better soon!
Warmest wishes for a speedy recovery.
