Welcome to my Blog. I have a bit of a squirrel mentality. I love to be creative, but I do tend to get distracted easily. Although this blog focuses mainly on paper crafts (I am an independent consultant for Close to my Heart) I am also the proud owner of Shirley's Flowers and Friends in Beautiful Three Hills, AB. I hope my posts, inspire you to be more creative, and bring a smile to your face. And if you're ever in rural Alberta stop in at the shop.
Part of any Florist's life is dealing with death. Flowers and Funeral seem to go hand in hand.
Over the last few days I have made a number of arrangements and casket sprays, many of them with roses.
This got me to thinking, why do people choose roses? And luckily for me google provided the answer...
roses are a very common and appropriate funeral flower, and each color rose has a slightly different connotation. White roses are the ultimate symbol of spirituality, purity, and innocence. At a funeral, the classic deep red rose evokes love and grief. The yellow rose is often given by friends to show their bond. The rarer dark pink roses are used to express thankfulness to the deceased.
