In memory: 'Let your love grow'
08 November 2020
A twist on the traditional coffin spray, this exclusive Stems UK funeral tribute suitable for delivery directly to the funeral directors or other address, includes plants as well as cut flowers designed with the thought that you could keep the plants as a keepsake after the service.
Shown using a summer mixture, foxgloves for their majestic beauty, they are also perfect self-seeders in the garden. Hydrangeas are wonderful in the garden and the heads can be cut and dried after the flowering season. Succulents are so fashionable right now and they are easily cared for, did you know that succulents mean understated, enduring and timeless love?
Each flower is chosen to compliment the plants, here we included scented stocks, which are a symbol of happy life and contented existence, also wild nigella - 'love-in-a-mist', set amongst an abundance of foliages.
In this photo, you can see we have used Stephanotis which is a particular favourite of ours, it is taken off of it support cane and wound through the arrangement. The pretty white flowers, shaped like starry trumpets, release a subtle and warm smell, which is similar to a blend of jasmine and lilies. This fragrance is highly sought after and is part of many famous perfumes.
The plants can be removed from the display. With a little nurturing and care they can be kept for years to come to flourish time and time again, a lovely reminder of wonderful memories of those who have passed.
It is an old practice to plant a plant as a momento of a lost loved one. Planting in somones memory is a lasting tribute to their place in your heart and can often help as part of the healing process.
What plant would you like to be remebered by?
