Funeral Flowers

At Sprout, we probably don't do as many funeral flowers as other flower shops, because we're not as traditional as most of them. We're not the place you go to if you're looking for carnations and gladiolas. It's not so much that we're flower snobs, but that more traditional look just doesn't represent what we do well - there are plenty of other places to go to for that.

These recent pieces show you a little bit of our style. The top photo is of a casket cover and the lower photo is one of the pieces we did to go on either side of the casket.

We use a lot of tropical flowers at the shop, and I'm sure that makes some people think that we'll do something wacky and Hawaiian for a funeral, but if you look at the photos, you can see how we successfully integrated some tropicals like birds of paradise, anthurium, and orchids with more gardeny flowers such as roses, broom corn, and thistles.

(BTW we can certainly do an all tropical look too, but only if you specifically ask for it!)
