flowers for a summer funeral 2012

Funerals obviously aren’t happy events, yet they often draw attention to the best aspects of a person’s life.  As we began to receive orders for the flowers for a funeral of one local man, it became clear that he was widely and deeply loved in our community.

Every piece we created for his services adhered to a green-and-white color scheme.  This basket, wrapped in preserved moss and tied with raffia ribbons, held bells of Ireland, green ball dianthus, green hypericum berries, variegated pittosporum (“pitt”), white Asiatic lilies, white lisianthus (“lizzy”), and white snapdragons.moss-covered basket

As orders poured in and affectionate messages poured out in the cards to his loved ones, we knew for sure that this was a man whose life had touched many others for good.  We hope our pieces paid worthy tribute to him.  We are honored to have been included in the farewell to such a beloved person.
