Funeral Flowers

Tue, 14/10/2014 - 12:02 -- Marion

It is always sad to create flowers to say goodbye but my customers often tell me it is the flowers that get them through a difficult day. Something to focus on, a welcome distraction, a talking point when there are simply not the right words to say. I take the task of designing and creating your flowers very seriously and aim to make the process as easy as possible. Your flowers should be individual and personal to reflect your feelings.

What funeral flowers to choose?
