Flowers play a significant role in all the meaningful events of life. We send flowers at the birth of a new baby, for birthdays and anniversaries, to celebrate a promotion or congratulate a job well done. Flowers are present throughout our lives; and as we find ourselves saying goodbye to someone at the end of their journey, flowers remain a thoughtful and important element.
When we lose someone special, the specific meaning of certain flowers makes a poignant statement. Lilies signify hope and purity; roses stand for honor and love; gladiolus stands for the integrity of moral character, and orchids make the simple statement “I will always love you”.
Floral arrangements have many applications at a memorial service. If there will be a casket, gorgeous sprays are used to adorn, while lush displays can be created to surround an urn if appropriate. Wreaths, floral crosses, and standing floor displays can be specially made to pay tribute in a personal way, using the loved one’s favorite flowers or colors; and patriotic displays are popular to honor those who served with dignity. Celebrating life is a very popular choice, and flowers are a wonderful addition to those ceremonies.

If attending services, you may wish to bring a bouquet or gift for those grieving to bring home as a remembrance. Ah Sam has plants, dish gardens and blooming plants that will last long after the services are over, giving comfort over the ensuing months. These thoughtful floral gifts are a lasting memorial to the ones we love.
Although these times are difficult, the gift of family, friends, and memories is precious to all of us. Let Ah Sam translate your emotions into a striking display worthy of those gone for now, but never forgotten. We are open in San Mateo, and here to discuss all your sympathy flower needs.
