Recent sympathy work

It’s important to me to always ask plenty of questions and listen closely when taking a sympathy order. Whether the design will be going to the funeral service or to the home of the family who is grieving, I am looking for insight into the deceased’s personality and the sender’s relationship to him/her so that I can create a unique floral piece that is representative. Colors, flower varieties, style and presentation all come into play.

This arrangement of lilies, roses, snap dragons and blue delphinium in a large glass cube makes an elegant statement without being overly traditional.
