These arrangements were for a Gentleman who loved the bush and hiking. The family thought that the flowers should reflect that, so I used Flowers & Greenery that you would find naturally in our mountains, especially now as the protea’s are flowering. The roses aren’t natural to our bush but I needed something to lift the arrangement slightly but not make it to feminine.
Funerals or Memorial Services are always a very sad time for all involved, been there & done that! But I feel there is another way to see these events in one’s life as a celebration of that person’s wonderful live, their fabulous smile, beautiful heart and amazing love a time to reflect on all the adventures they went on. I find the best way to do this is to use bright & beautiful flowers at the service (and in my case when I pass on the party afterwards). Use their favourite flowers, or bring in their favourite colours this is guaranteed to lift people’s spirits and make them remember all the wonderful memories they have of the person. These are flowers we did for a very special lady in honour of her amazing life.
But what are your thoughts?
