Saying Goodbye With Flowers & A Personal Touch….
Floristry can be all about big events, weddings and Happy Birthdays. Of course there are funerals too.I really do enjoy making funeral pieces. As the family is trusting me to make something so special for their day to say GOODBYE.
I always feel so honoured when people ask me, if I will create the flowers for their loved ones. Even though it is a sad time, it is a time to remember their happy face, the joy they brought to your life and the fun you had together.
When I speak to the family members about what their angels personality was like. I find out as much as I can. From who they were as a person, what colours they liked and what sort of environment they enjoyed. As I like to create pieces that express exactly who they were.
I have worked for other businesses in the past, watching them mass produce casket covers one by one. Just like there was no love and that it was just another job. After seeing that with my own eyes, I swore to myself I would NEVER, EVER do that to a family. As every person that has passed is just so special, they too need a special send off, with happy memories for the families.
Using a certain flower, scent, colour or even adding a personal belonging, is something special
for the family to see. Using a scent (say Gardenia's for example), every time you smelt that flower you could be reminded of that person. Knowing they are looking down on you, or if your lucky enough you could maybe feel their precence at that very moment.
Creating casket covers for people whom I have known and loved, has always been tough. When making these pieces, I know they wouldn't want me to be upset. The crazy thing is, something comes over me and I am able to create something more AMAZING than I first invisioned. People ask me.... How can I possibly do it? The strength within you is stronger than you think!!!
I know I can make a sad day just that little bit extra special for you and your family. So if you would like me make something amazing for you, just give me a call and I would be more than happy too help. Rheannon Lee xx
