Winter funeral flowers

December 22, 2008

Here is a soft selection, for the passing of an elegant lady.  The soft pearl and shell tones of the spray roses,  hybrid roses, and peonies along with the cascading cedar greenery, and soft tone of the seeded eucci.

The elegant comination is perfect for any time of the year, and for a peaceful elegant and comforting look.  The looks very handsome on a rich tone casket, a wood tone or even a brushed nickle.

Vibrant Funeral

August 23, 2008

Just a few days ago we had a client who wanted flowers for a funeral.  They wanted the arrangements to be very vibrant and colourful, using oranges and reds. (We really do appreciate it when clients come in with an idea of what they want… you have no idea how hard it is to make an arrangement when a client says “oh, I don’t know what I want, whatever you decide”)

We used lilies, roses, tritoma, cherry brandy roses, red sunflowers, and leather leaf to create these arrangements.  (I appologise for the poor picture quality, the camera has been on the fritz)

Informal Memorial

July 25, 2008

Yesterday a request came for a pink sympathy arrangement.  We created it using lillys, snapdragons, spider mums, asters, roses, and various greens including eucalyptus.  The flowers were arranged loosely and informally.  If put in a different vase with a different ribbon, this arrangement could also be used for other events such as grand openings or celebrations.

See you on Route 66

July 25, 2008

Here we have a funeral arrangement for a car enthusiast.  After the phone call about the deceased loving cars we had a dilemma…  what kind of car enthusiast?  I mean, we have NASCAR, Classic Cars, Rally, ect.   So my father being the bright man he is used put a Route 66 sign on the arrangement.  That way we can’t go wrong.

FTD Catalog Order

July 21, 2008

FTD, if you have never heard of it, is a florist network that enables people to place an order at a florist in their location and have it created by a florist near the location they want it delivered to. 

This specfic order was a sympathy arrangement the client selected from the FTD catalog

A picture of the catalog selection. As you can see it has only three roses, three snap-dragons, a stick, and several assorted smaller flowers

This arrangement was priced by FTD at $105.  We found the picture in the catalog to be a bit…  sparse as far as flowers go, especially for the price being paid.

Here is the arrangement we created, using much more flora than the picture perscribed

Here is the arrangement we created, using much more flora than the picture perscribed, whilst maintaining the original idea of the catalog arrangement
