Mia’s mother had been visiting A&L Florist for years, so when the time came to farewell her, Mia didn’t hesitate in approaching A&L for the perfect funeral flowers.
“My mother used to love going into A&L and she knew Lauretta and the family. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing the funeral was. The flowers were so fresh and the floral design was stunning. People are still talking about it.”
The first choice for funeral flowers
The funeral was held in August 2019, and from the outset Mia knew just what she wanted.
“I called up A&L and Stefano (A&L head florist) came out to the house, which was so lovely as it was a difficult time. I said I wanted my mother to have the best of everything. I wanted the wow factor. She was such a beautiful person and so deserving, so I wanted it all to look amazing.
I told Stefano that Mum loved roses and orchids,” adds Mia. “We decided to go with off white and green for the colours, and I left everything else up to Stefano. From there, he came up with so many ideas.”
Farewelling a beloved family member
For the funeral, Stefano and the A&L Florist team designed, created and installed a wide range of spectacular floral arrangements.
“We had so many flowers,” explains Mia. “I’m one of three daughters and each family member presented an arrangement. Stefano created one for each of us and for each grandchild. It was all in a theme and worked really well. They were all magnificent.
We also had a 30-day mass,” adds Mia. “We didn’t want to go all out for that, but I did ask for flowers for the altar.”
The result was perfection.
“The flowers for the altar, for the coffin, everywhere, were just stunning. They were all really fresh and they arrived on time. I couldn’t fault anything at all.”
The A&L Florist difference
For Mia, the flower quality and floral design were spectacular, but one of the best parts of her experience was the caring customer service. “Stefano is just lovely and caring and genuine, and he also has that flair with flowers. Maria (another A&L florist) helped too, and she was also fantastic.”
Now Mia continues her mum’s relationship with A&L Florist.
“We go in every Sunday now to get fresh flowers from Lauretta, then visit my mum’s grave. The whole family is just amazing.”
