Sending Sympathy Flowers~

Flowers are a lovely way to show your condolences to someone you care for in times of loss.
It is a wonderful gesture to have flowers sent to the memorial service for the deceased, flowers warm up the room and bring life and color to the time of mourning.
The flowers at funeral services represent how much the deceased was loved, admired and respected by others.
There are all different types of floral displays that are appropriate to send to funeral services.
Traditional floral bouquets are usually in a vase, pot or basket, generally arranged all the the front and taller. Here are some examples of some traditional floral bouquets we have arranged in the past.

Floral displays arranged on a standing easel are also a popular way to send floral bouquets to funeral services. It makes the arrangement look large and showy and can easily stand up at front of viewing area at the funeral service.
Easel bouquets can also be arranged on wreath forms, in the shapes of circles, squares and hearts.
Here are a couple examples of some of our easel designs.

Casket sprays are generally ordered by the immediate family and adorn the top of the casket at a funeral. Here is a recent one we did.

Smaller bouquets are also perfectly appropriate for funerals, or bouquets designed in lower containers. Simple vases of mixed flowers are a nice sentiment and can easily be taken home by a family member to enjoy.
Here is a mercury glass centerpiece bowl with an arrangement or red roses done for a recent funeral.
Regardless of budget or size, flowers are always a heartfelt sentiment for family members of a lost loved one. For more sympathy designers visit our website:

Dishgardens and European Dish Gardens

A dish garden is typically a basket or container with an arrangement of a variety of indoor green houseplants in it.  They are a great gift for a plant lover or for sympathy. The plants are arranged in the container in their own individual pots so they can be split apart later on and moved into larger pots or taken to different homes.

European Dishgardens are baskets or containers of plants arranged in the same way as dishgardens, the only difference is that European Dish Gardens include a mixture of green and blooming plants.
The blooming plants add pops of color and give the garden a more "outdoor" feel to it.

Dishgardens and European Dish Gardens are a great gift for any occasion, they are a plant lovers dream and last longer than fresh cut flowers. They can be made up in just about any price range you desire.
