Flowers can look beautiful for end-of-life events, too


Is it strange that I'm posting funeral photos on a Wedding Decorator blog? Maybe. But while I was working with my mom, we did all kinds of flowers, not just weddings. So it so happens that these photos of these vibrant red roses are from a casket cover.


Funeral jobs actually tend to be easier than weddings. Most of the pieces are large and not intricate (meaning, less intricate finger work), and the delivery is one way. With weddings, there are the small boutonnieres and corsages to create, there's major prep work, there's delivery, clean up and pick up. The drawback to funerals tend to be that they are last minute jobs, meaning you often go to the flower market just hours after getting the phone-in order.
