Purchasing and sending funeral flowers to the funeral home is one of the most common and time-consuming tasks when planning a funeral. This task can be made even more complicated if you are unable to visit the flower shop or funeral home due to several different reasons. If you want to simplify this task (for a comprehensive funeral planning list please review our Complete Funeral Planning Guide) you should either speak with the funeral director or use our funeral flower service.


The Obitia Funeral Flower Service

The Obitia funeral and sympathy flower shop is powered by Florist One, the top funeral flower delivery service in the United States. Our shop allows you to purchase beautiful sympathy and funeral flowers, which will be arranged locally and delivered locally. Depending on cutoff times, your flowers may even be eligible for same-day delivery.

The Obitia funeral flower shop allows for anyone in the country to order and send flowers to any address in the country. However, we have made it easy for you to send flowers directly to funeral homes, by integrating our service with our funeral home search.

To send funeral or sympathy flowers to a funeral home following the directions below:

  1. Search and find the funeral home you wish to send flowers to.
  2. Click the “Send Flowers” button
  3. Browse and order your funeral flowers as you would any other products online.
  4. When you are prompted to fill out the delivery information, the funeral home’s address will be prefilled for you. You may also change this if you need to.
  5. Complete your order as directed and your flowers will be on the way to the funeral home on the day you requested.


Ask the Funeral Director about Funeral Flower Arrangements

Many funeral homes either have close connections with local florists or operate a flower shop themselves. Funeral directors will usually be happy to help you with any flower arrangements you require. Make sure to consider asking the funeral director about what kinds of flower arrangements you will need, such as casket sprays, standing sprays, et cetera. This can be covered in the arrangement conference when you first meet with the funeral director to plan out the funeral and memorial service.


Sending Sympathy Flowers to a Funeral Home

Please read our article “When to Send Sympathy Flowers” which explains the etiquette and practical considerations of when and where to send sympathy flowers to family members of the deceased. For information on the term “in lieu of flowers” and what it means please read ‘What Does “In Lieu of Flowers” Mean?’. For a complete guide to sending sympathy flowers please read “Guide to Sending Sympathy Flowers” which covers etiquette, flower types, and other tips.

However, you can still use our service in much the same way as outlined above, by searching for the funeral home and then clicking the “Send Flowers” button to easily browse and order sympathy flowers to the funeral home.

For advice on what to write on the sympathy card read “25 Messages for Sympathy Flower’s Cards”.



Planning a funeral is difficult and can be complicated. Our flower shop tries to simplify the task of finding and purchasing funeral flowers. Our shop can deliver on the same day and is specialized with only funeral and sympathy flower options, so you don’t have to wonder whether the arrangement you are picking is appropriate or not. You only have to decide if you think your loved one would have liked it.
