When my grandmother passed away earlier this year, I took a moment to look around as we packed up her home. Traces of her were everywhere; from the pots of colourful plants on her balcony, to the binoculars by the window, where she would sit for hours and watch birds come to the feeders she so lovingly filled for them week after week. Inside, it was an amazing collection of paintings, scrapbooks, and other arts and crafts she'd put her heart into over the years. And although it was sad to look around and see so many things that reminded me of her, I wanted to bring that same character, heart, and meaning to her memorial service too.
It was that moment that inspired our new hobby-based plantable memorial cards and memorial bookmarks. As the name implies, these new funeral cards are based on popular hobbies and pastimes including birdwatching, crafting, fishing, gardening, photography and music - and are available in a gorgeous array of colors. Like all of our plantable memorial cards and bookmarks, guests will take these mementos home and plant the seed paper piece to grow a beautiful garden of flowers, and think of that special someone as the blooms grow and thrive for a long time to come.
I know my grandmother would have appreciated the plantable memorial cards that were given away to those that attended her funeral, just as we know those guests are enjoying the flowers that now grow in her memory.
Our special offer to you as we introduce this new collection is a savings of 20% off your order of these hobby-based plantable memorial cards and plantable memorial bookmarks. This offer will extend until September 5, 2012.
