Sympathy flowers

I don’t usually do funeral flowers but if I’m asked by someone to honour their loved one in this way of course, I would.

These are the flowers I crated for my Grandmothers funeral. She was a keen gardener with a special love of roses. My flowers for her reflect this. However, the flowers were from more than just my part of the family. My Auntie Anna remembers her with freesia and my Auntie Helen with the lemon rose. The rest was up to me. Autumnal foliage and berries for the time of year. Blackberries or ‘‘Brambles’’ as she was called Bram. Honeysuckle she had in her garden and of course as many roses as I could pack in to represent her rose border. My Mum of course was just thrilled it was me who did the flowers. That was her contribution.

So, you can see the thought & attention that goes into creating flowers for someone whether they are getting married or have passed way. Its all so unique to them.

I hope you like them.

V&B goes to Floribunda Rose

So, last year I took a chance and answered a plea for assistance by a fellow florist whom Id never met. She was asking for freelance help with her wedding work.

More than a year later, I have a lovely friend, colleague and a whole circle of other lovely florists that I can call on for help and friendship.

Sarah, at Floribunda Rose is so inspirational, working only with British flowers and using eco friendly techniques. To say, it has opened my eyes to a whole different way of creating flower arrangements and installations.

Always keen to learn, I attended one of her workshops.

What fun!

Here is the fruit of my labour.
