Eight contemporary sympathy tributes featuring universally beloved
Designs by Talmage
This casket spray proves that eye-catching impact is
achievable using only two types of botanicals. Spider chrysanthemums are
arranged in a clean, contemporary way, creating a linear swag that
intersects variegated Aspidistra leaves. Several of the leaves are
looped to create more volume and a natural foliar alternative to a
traditional ribbon bow.
The Aspidistra leaves impart a tropical feel both in the
casket spray and the urn that holds the foliage in the coordinating
arrangement; however, the focus of the arrangement lies at the base of
the urn, where three types of chrysanthemums as well as vibrant green
hybrid Dianthuses are arranged in vertical rows for impact.
