"Tell me about your loved one"

My mother passed away some years ago. She loved birds and birdhouses so much that when I began to design the floral arrangements for her funeral I felt compelled to put these items into them. So atop her casket, mixed with the beautiful flowers, were birds and birdhouses of different shapes and sizes. We were a family of six children so six birds representing us and another one representing my father were put into the flowers, some sitting on branches, some on the birdhouses. At the end of the viewing each of us took our bird and placed it somewhere very close to our precious mother.

A few years later, my father passed away. His life as a book publisher was lived till the very end. So on his casket I placed a book with no pages and on the cover his life with birth & death dates printed. As each person came into the viewing there were blank pages upon which each person could write something. These pages, at the end of the viewing were then placed into the book which was the focal point of his arrangement. Since then I have done many different personalized themed sympathy arrangements. Because of the compliments and satisfaction from my customers I am now offering this service exclusively at Barbara’s Bloomers. It is so hard to lose a loved one but as a Christian who has been blessed with the gift of design this is a service I feel compelled to offer. The comfort of seeing beautiful flowers is only accentuated by the personalized touch of an expression of that person’s life.
