Sympathy flowers are very close to my heart, as I have always felt that nature reminds us of the circle of life. Fresh flowers and greenery are so comforting in times of grief and often provide great solace to those who are experiencing loss.

When designing the funeral floral arrangements for a dearly missed family member, I was able to incorporate flowers from his carefully tended garden. Much to the pleasure of all in attendance who were then able to picture him cheerfully weeding and watering his most beloved plants.

Sympathy flowers may be designed together with the family to ensure the personalised floral tribute is entirely befitting in remembrance.
