Sympathy flowers to express your feelings
Back in Victorian days, gifts of flowers, plants and blooms were used to send coded messages to the recipient, allowing the sender to express feelings that would not have been said out loud in those times. Today things are different, but relaying special messages can still be difficult, especially at a time of loss, and flowers can help express feelings when words are simply not enough.
An old friend came to see me this week, as soon as she called and asked if I was free, I knew that something sad had happened. Unfortunately Carol’s Mum had passed away, I have fond memories of June from many years ago. I am always so touched when friends and old acquaintances reach out to me at these times of need and it is always an honor to be asked to provide a fitting floral tribute. I will look forward to creating a beautiful display of flowers for such a lovely lady.
I always feel a great responsibility to get the flowers just right on these occasions, as I always feel privileged to be asked by a family to provide flowers for their loved one. I take pride in making the flowers as personal and fitting as possible, just like with weddings really.
I like to find out if the person had a favorite flower or colour that can be incorporated, it is lovely to be asked to create a bespoke tribute, I have made all sorts of things from Crossword puzzles , Cricket Bats, Rugby Balls, Cars, Airplanes to Liquorice Allsorts ! I like to think that these bespoke funeral flowers can spark treasured memories of times gone by and help lift the mood with stories and good times spent together. There are pictures of some of these tributes on the Showcase page, look at the top menu bar.
