Four Seasons Flowers Virtual Design Classes 2020

It’s design class season here at Four Seasons Flowers. Normally this would mean we have groups of people multiple times a day, joining us in the shop in person. Our design classes have become a yearly tradition for so many that we didn’t want this year to be any different. For 2020 we are offering our design classes virtually.

Funeral and Sympathy Flowers

Having flowers at a funeral is a long standing tradition. Today flowers are sent to a funeral as a way to visually express love, respect, and the pain of mourning for the deceased. They are also sent to show support of those grieving. Flowers bring warmth and beauty to a service.

There are many types of arrangements that can be sent to a funeral. You can choose from vase arrangements, standing sprays, and maches.

The more personal flowers are usually sent by family members and those closer to the deceased. These could be a casket piece or urn wreath.

Whether a wreath, spray, or vase arrangement there are many styles and flowers to choose from. They can be traditional all whites or bright and vibrant to represent the deceased’s personality. They are often traditional to the deceased’s culture as well.

Sympathy flowers can be sent to the home of the family of the deceased instead of being sent to the service. These flowers should have less of a funeral look and feel. Usually a vase arrangement, these are meant to show support of those who have suffered the loss.

An other option is to send a plant or memorial garden. These living memorials are a touching gift of hope and renewal during a difficult time. These can be sent to the service or to the home of a loved one.

Four Seasons Flowers carries a variety of beautiful and tasteful sympathy flower arrangements, plants, and memorial gardens all available for delivery to funeral homes, churches, or the house of a grieving loved one. We offer sympathy flower delivery throughout San Diego with fresh, beautiful flowers.

Mental Health and Flowers

There has been an abundance of talk about the importance of mental health lately, as there should be. We watch what we eat. We work out. We park further away from the store to get extra steps in. We eat organic foods. We cut back on carbs. We drink more water. We get more sleep…well, we mean to… We do all of these things to lead healthier lives. What we need to realize is our mental health is just as important as our physical health, if not more. Meditation, travel, actually relaxing on your day off, all of these help your mental health. They give your brain a chance to recharge. Getting the care and support you need is so important as well. Never hesitate to find counseling for your mental health.

You can start working on your mental health at home. Clear out any clutter. Paint your walls in calm, soothing colors. Create a space where you can have down time to unplug and unwind. Bring in plants to freshen the air. Plants clear toxins from the air and create oxygen…we all learned that in middle school science right?

It is also proven that fresh flowers bring health and happiness to our lives. Bringing flower arrangements into your home or giving them to others can reduce depression and anxiety. They can enhance memory and give a room a positive feeling, making patients heal faster physically as well as mentally.

It’s amazing what bringing a bit of nature into your home, whether it be a plant or a bouquet of flowers can do. Four Seasons Flowers has a wonderful selection of flower arrangements and plants to brighten up your space. Contact us to order an arrangement, plant, or dish garden at 1-858-484-7700 , on our site , or come in to our beautiful shop.

You can take one of our offered Fall or Holiday classes and learn how to create an arrangement of your own. We also do private classes, then you can share the fun and health benefits with your friends and family!
