Funerals really are a privilege to work on and making them beautiful using sustainable flowers makes them even more so. These June funeral flowers have been one of my favourite jobs to work on. Using a combination of my flowers and those from the ladies garden- I created a beautiful funeral sheaf and fully decorated casket.

The sheaf was constructed using the same method as the traditional version I had made earlier in the month. I incorporated roses, sweet peas and feverfew with lavender and peonies kindly given to me to work with from the family. The house smelt absolutely heavenly as the peonies where the most incredible I’ve ever seen. It was wonderful to be able to create such a gorgeous final bouquet.

For the casket I made hanging posies using the same flowers as the sheaf, attaching them on the day of the funeral in the morgue itself.  To finish the casket I made and added tiny posies of lavender to the strings of the posies to create a garland dressing the coffin.

Like many of us, working so closely to death isn’t something I have much experience with. Instead of it being scary or sad it was incredibly peaceful and honouring, I really got a sense of this being what I am meant to do and gave it 100% of my energy.

If you are looking for British grown funeral flowers that are eco friendly and kind the earth please get in touch. I’m based in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex and can travel to the surrounding towns to deliver. Not only do you get all of the above but I promise that I’ll make the last flowers the most beautiful and soulful that I can.
