Themed Sympathy Arrangement – the J way!

It’s viewer request time…I’ve had several requests to create a “funeral arrangement”. I’ve even had some that want me to create a “flat fan-shaped funeral arrangement”, but that’s not how I do it…I create “Celebration of Life” arrangements…theming them or as my dad always said, “turning people’s feelings into flowers”. That’s the way I do it…creating something that is meaningful, beautiful and eye-catching so that our tribute truly helps mirror the life of our family member or friend.
We’ll do it step by step…grouping the flowers and foliage for impact, design and focal emphasis. It’s time to “turn our feelings into flowers” and create a lovely bouquet for a Celebration of Life…Enjoy!

    Another beautiful flower arrangement as usual. Thanks for the talk about funeral arrangements that are fan shaped. Being a florist since 1965 I always wasn’t a big fan of those. When I lived back in New Jersey I worked in a shop that was mostly doing a lot of funeral work. Needless to say when the customer said just make a beautiful arrangement, it wasn’t a fan shaped one. Living all over the country over the years, this was always the go to arrangement. Thankfully I have been living in Oregon for the past 24 years and that is not the style here as there are a lot of cremations, and memorial services are the main way of remembering loved ones. Mostly in small venues or at homes, so the arrangement you made would be perfect at one of those. Enjoy all your work and ideas. Have a great day.

    This arrangement is outstanding. I make things for my mom, who passed away two years ago this August. I’ll try this, but with permanent botanicals so it can be in the cemetery.
