What is it about the holiday season? Mixed among the poinsettias deliveries, boxwood trees and holiday party decorations, we always seem to have more than our share of family funerals to create flower tributes for. As if the holidays are not stressful enough, imagine loosing a loved one at this time. Actually, I don't have to imagine it, I lost my own father on Christmas Eve 19 years ago.
The flowers above were delivered today for a very good customer who was having a memorial service for her mother. Soft pinks, seasonal but feminine made for a striking display at church and the pink marble poinsettias could be given away to family members after the service as a remembrance. There is no substitution for the personal touch needed to create flowers like these. Meeting with the family and discussing their wishes is both an honor and duty that we take very seriously.
Above is an arrangement we created a few years back for man who had a special bond with his dog "Lady". How sweet was the person who had this made for him? I've always thought this flower doggie bone must have made everyone smile when they saw it.
We sincerely hope you won't need it, but if the need arises and you need to send sympathy flowers during the holiday season, please call your local florist. Please don't use a company that will drop ship a box of flowers the church or funeral home. Your local florist will hand arrange and hand deliver a floral tribute worthy of the personal receiving the flowers.
