Meaningful Flower Card Message Ideas For Every Occasion

One lovely way to say how you feel is with flowers, and attaching a custom card or note. Flower card messages are usually short, 50 characters or less to fit within cards that are supplied by florists. As a general rule, it’s most effective to keep your sentiments simple, sincere and from the heart. These messages combined with a beautiful bouquet or floral arrangement can create a touching, lifelong memory.

Sympathy Card Message (Funeral flowers, Condolence)

It can be difficult to know how to put into words what you’re feeling when you want to express sympathy to a loved one, friend, or co-worker. You want to be sensitive but sincere, and hope your words can offer some source of comfort and make sure the recipient understands that you’re they’re for them. Be aware of the religious beliefs of the deceased’s loved ones, avoid religious messages if you know they aren’t religious to avoid causing any offense.


  • ‘I/We are thinking of you during this difficult time’
  • ‘My/our thoughts and prayers are with you.’
  • ‘With heartfelt condolences’
  • ‘With my/our deepest sympathy’
  • ‘Gone but Never Forgotten’
  • ‘Forever in our hearts’


  • ‘We are so sorry to hear of your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts. She/He/Name will never be forgotten.’
  • ‘Words can’t describe the sadness we feel over [the deceased’s name] passing. Please know you have our deepest sympathy and we are here to support you.’

For longer messages, feel free to include a personal experience or memory you shared with the deceased.

Apology Flowers Message

Apology messages can be one of the trickiest to write, as you are likely hoping for forgiveness, and your flowers and message can play a key part in this.

Sometimes a simple ‘I’m sorry’ card, when joined with beautiful apology flowers, is all that is needed. Some other suggestions we have for you are:

  • ‘I am truly sorry for the pain I caused you.’
  • ‘Please accept these flowers and know how sorry I am.’
  • ‘Please accept my apology’
  • ‘You are very dear to me, I hope you will accept my apology’
