With Deepest Sympathy


Flowers are a silent companion for all of life's major events. We often receive flowers in celebration of birth and on birthdays. Young couples courting often exchange flowers as a sign of affection. Flowers adorn all aspects of the celebration of weddings and anniversaries. All too often we loose those who are near and dear to us. Thus, it seems fitting that in memorandum to those we love, we show our appreciation and respect with an arrangement of flowers that is reflective of the personality of those who have passed.

Sympathy designs can be used to express a story or different aspects of the personality of the deceased. The mere presence of flowers at a memorial service changes the tone of the venue. Flowers provide a transition for those who find themselves in a stark reality to a softer more peaceful transitory state. Flowers are the essential medium used to express emotion in a time where words seems to be void of meaning.

A showcased above, a recent trend in floral tributes is personalization. Often times color is the main focus, but design, style, and various adornments are also popular. For example; incorporating an American flag for a veteran or using red, white and blue can symbolize their service and devotion to their country. One who loved the outdoors could have a more naturalistic design. Or a former Chef or Baker could have an arrangement made in a mixer with a spatula or whisk as an accent. Sympathy designs are the perfect way to express emotions that seem difficult to categorize. Let us customize a design for you and your occasion that will express your deepest sympathies.
