Flower Card Messages

Blue hydrangeas with a floral enclosure card

Now that you've picked out the flowers, what do you write on the card?

When you order flowers from Plumeria we include your personal message on a small card that gets "picked" in with your flowers. This is referred to as an "enclosure card" for us nomenclature nerds. The card is relatively small so your message needs to be well crafted and concise. It can be tricky to be creative and witty when the occasion calls for it, just as it can be difficult to express heartfelt sympathy in a time of tragedy or loss. This is why we have created our flower card message cheat sheet to share ideas we have collected along the way.

Get Well Card Messages

We truly believe that laughter is the best medicine. A little humor can truly brighten a person’s day. Just try not to rip anyone’s fresh stitches with your comedic flower cards. If the relationship is a bit more formal it’s probably safer to stick with a somewhat formal sentiment. Here’s a few ideas for your next get-well card:

  • Sorry to hear your body is as sick as your mind. Get well soon!
  • Sorry the only thing ravaging your body is the flu virus. Get well soon!
  • Sorry about your injury and that you haven’t thought of a more badass backstory yet. Get well!
  • Get well soon. I’m getting really tired of taking care of myself.
  • Wishing you a speedy recovery. We miss you!
  • Our thoughts are with you during your recovery. We wish you well.
  • Sending lots of love for your speedy recovery!
  • “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Isaiah 40:29

Sympathy Card Messages

Finding the right words during times of heartache and loss can be extremely difficult. Our best advice is to be honest, sincere, and heartfelt. Focus on reminding the grieving that you are thinking of them and that you are there if they need you. If you are sending flowers to family or close friends, a personal message will most likely be best. If the flowers are for a colleague or professional acquaintance you may want to opt for a more formal message. Here are a few sympathy messages for your next card:

  • We wish you peace and comfort as you remember a friend who was dear to your heart.
  • With heavy hearts we send our sympathy in this time of loss.
  • With deepest sympathy in your time of loss.
  • Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
  • Sending sympathy and love to you and your family.
  • In loving memory.
  • With heartfelt sympathy.
  • My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of loss.
  • We are here for you in your time of grieving.
  • Thinking of you in this time of grieving.
  • Our deepest sympathies during your time of loss.
  • Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
  • God bless you and yours.
  • Janis will always be in our hearts and memories. With sympathy, The Cornell Family.
  • Thinking of you as you celebrate the remarkable life of Chris Cornell.
  • In loving memory of James Brown, he will be missed dearly.
  • Please accept our condolences for the loss of your grandfather.
  • Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. From all your friends at Plumeria.

I'm Sorry Card Messages

The number one rule in relationships… always admit when you’re wrong. Taking ownership of action is the fastest way to make amends. And, of course, it always helps when your apology is accompanied by flowers. Here are a few options for expressing your remorse:

  • If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't.
  • Please forgive me for being a fool.
  • I'm sorry. Please forgive me.
  • You don’t deserve the heartache my actions have caused. Please forgive me.
  • While I can’t turn back time, I can be better from this point forth. I’m sorry.
  • My mistakes have become your pain. For this I am forever sorry. Please forgive me.
  • I stumbled across these flowers while hanging out in the doghouse. Hoping I can come out soon. I’m sorry.
