    Blooming Chic, naturally beautiful flowers by Judy Ward  

Here at Blooming Chic we made the decision, from the start of our business in 2014, to be a producer of natural tributes for funerals as we were uncomfortable with the amount of waste that is produced by florists catering for funerals.


We are proud of what we can make for natural farewells, and we specialise in floral tributes for natural and woodland funerals by providing creative and unique designs suitable for the natural ethos of a simple funeral.


You will not find any florists' foam, cellophane or one use plastics in our designs as we use materials that are either completely biodegradable, reusable or recyclable. And, in many cases compostable.

Where possible we use locally grown materials and flowers and have access to many local growers here in beautiful Wiltshire, but may also use some imported flowers when called for. We are also happy to use flowers and foliages from the garden of your loved one or yourselves, and we make this as personal as you would wish.

The most important consideration is that we make this about you and your loved one so that no two tributes are the same, but made uniquely for your special farewell.


Please do get in touch for a conversation about the wishes of your loved one for their last farewell.

The laying of a wreath has been around for thousands of years. In ancient Greece they were used to represent the circle of eternal life. The christian tradition of laying evergreen wreaths was and still is a representation of the victory of the eternal spirit over death. In pre christian, Pagan times, the wreath was made in 4 quarters to represent the cycle of life, the young buds, the blooming of flowers, the yellowing or fading of the flowers and finally the dead flowers, each part running into the next to show the cycle of life. No one really likes the idea of using dead flowers nowadays, but instead can section the wreath to represent the stages of life.

In Britain the tradition of wreath laying has been recorded since early modern times (1500-1800), but was thought to be a pagan tradition by Protestant reformers such as the Puritans, so was frowned upon. In Victorian times, when the language of flowers and their symbolism was in vogue, the wreath bases were often crafted from Weeping Willow which was a symbol of melancholy and sadness.

The making of wreaths from willow is still a very strong tradition that is making a huge renaissance in light of the rising popularity of green and natural funerals.

There seems to be a new tradition growing in connection with natural and woodland funerals whereby the mourners take home elements of the tributes as a memento, this is not only a lovely finish to a farewell ceremony but is also in keeping with the growing ethos of recycling and reusing.

Thank yous

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to send me the photos of the flowers for Jane.  They are absolutely delightful and just suit the “circumstances”.  Your thoughtfulness in including the “extra” message is also much appreciated.  

Again, many thanks for your help, and I wish you well in these difficult times.

Kind regards and very best wishes,

Just wanted to thank you for the lovely flowers you arranged yesterday, as a family we thought they were excellent, so bright and cheery.
Thanks for delivering them to F.W. Jones.
We will definitely recommend you and use you again (under different circumstances)
Daphne and John Crofts


Just want to say how beautiful the flowers were. It was a lovely service.
We took your advice and each kept a few flowers for pressing.
Thank you very much!
Kind regards,
I am just emailing to thank you for the floral tributes that you made for our Mother's 'Celebration of Life' on Friday.  The coffin spray brought to mind an English country garden and were just the sorts of flowers she would have enjoyed on one of her many garden visits.  Likewise, the posies were much appreciated and enjoyed by those who attended and the buttonholes were lovely as well.
Thank you again.
Kind regards,
Vivianne Fox and family
