A life celebration is a deeply significant event with much meaning. I am always honoured to be asked to create floral tributes for funerals and memorials.
I particularly like to create biodegradable arrangements from woven branch bases, using sustainably sourced moss and locally-grown, chemical-free seasonal flowers and foliage. Often using symbolism or special flowers and plants. Clients will leave bags of foliage from gardens on my doorstep and I've even had special stems posted from Scotland.
Our arrangements are created on simple grids or wreathes of branches, tied with twine and using sustainably-sourced moss. We push stems into this moss (which also acts as a water reservoir) to create the shape. We can also make a hand-tied piece to lay on the coffin as part of the service and / or vase arrangements. All this work is entirely biodegradable.
