This extraordinary mixed flower bouquet delivers your sympathy with a beauty and faith that reflects the love and loss you feel.

Around an angel sculpted of artist's resin are pink roses, carnations, Stargazer lilies, statice and lush greens in a tabletop container that's not visible when set on a flat surface. It makes a fitting focal point for a wake or funeral service. Standard bouquet is approximately 11"H x 20"W.
