I always ask the florist what they suggest and they are really good they will do subtle colours and even will make the bouquet more masculine!

I think fall flowers would be beautiful, but I also don’t think that cheerful flowers would be inappropriate, especially if accompanied by a nice “I just wanted to let you know that I’m thinking about you this time of year” note.  You’re a great friend!

I always prefer a donation in honor of the person.  Did her dad have a favorite charity or cause he was devoted to?  Or did he pass away from a condition that has a society, like the American Cancer Society or something?

Often you can make the donation online and they will send notification to the family that it’s in honor of their loved one.

Oh, you are so thoughtful.

When my brother died, my mom was given some lovely houseplants to set on her windowsill-in very nice ceramic pots. They were like, the pretty ferns. I agree that flowers can be too “cheery” but we received 2 dozen white roses from my sorority (which is what we do when one of our members has this sort of tragedy). White roses are always nice but not cheery like colorful daisies. My mom actually really loves those houseplants (it’s been 1.5 years and she still has them) and always says “oh, J is such a good friend” and waters it lovingly. My mom doesn’t even like plants…
