Coming soon, A Giving Tribute — ‘the caring alternative to funeral flowers’ — a project I wholeheartedly endorse. 

Over in Canada, “Cartoonist Adrian Raeside once placed an obituary in the Times Colonist in which he asked mourners to send singlemalt scotch and Cuban cigars in lieu of flowers.” [Source

    I have a client who, in her End of Life plan, has decided that she wants a full replica of her “wedding bouquet” to be the only flowers required at her funeral. She has given me pictures, colour schemes etc ready for me to replicate that at the appropriate time. How lovely. Although lots of people still want to be traditional with flowers, some are leaning much more towards the new alternatives, a growing business opportunity?
