A florist has made it her mission to reach families at a time of need and enable them to have a floral tribute at a price they can afford.
Laura Church, from Hanham, makes her funeral flowers from high quality silk and is able to do the tributes in any colour, making it personal and meaningful to the loved one that has passed.
It’s also better for the environment. Laura said: “A lot of funeral flowers will eventually end up in the bin, or at least the plastics will.
“Because we reuse our arrangements, we massively save on wastage. The flowers you hire will one day go on to serve and comfort another family in their time of need.”
To avoid additional stress on the day, Laura can deliver straight to the funeral home and will also arrange a collection of the flowers with the funeral home.
She is in the process of doing a price list, but for now as an example – a fresh flower ‘mum’ tribute will cost £150 and an artificial silk flower ‘mum’ tribute will cost £50.
Laura started this hire out scheme to help families who may struggle to buy fresh flowers for loved ones in the current climate and the rising cost of flowers. She thought now would be the perfect time to start as she is “passionate” about making flowers more affordable.
She added: “This is going really well at the moment, the orders are coming in fast now and the feedback I have had has been very positive.
“All the artificial tributes I have done so far have all had brilliant reviews, one customer said I was their only hope in getting flowers for their loved one’s funeral.”
