While flowers are often given to express love, gratitude, or condolences, they can also be given to apologize for a mistake. When someone sends you flowers after making a mistake, it can be a touching and sincere way of saying “I’m sorry.” If you truly feel they owned up to their mistake, then consider writing a gracious note of thanks and forgiveness, like so:

Dear [Name],

I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the beautiful bouquet of flowers you sent me. While I was surprised to receive them, I want you to know that they brought a smile to my face during a difficult time.

I appreciate the gesture, and I understand that it may have been a way to apologize for the recent situation. Please know that I hold no hard feelings and I am grateful for your thoughtfulness.

Thank you again for the lovely flowers, and for your willingness to make things right.

Best regards, [Your Name]
