Chrysanthemums & Birdhouses
Designers: Sandra McLeod
In general, chrysanthemums are believed to represent happiness, love, longevity, and joy.
White mums represent purity, spirituality, and innocence.
Red mums represent friendship and devotion.
The birds and bird houses are not just bones and feathers: they are strength or hope, omen or oracle. Birds are found from beginning to end in the Bible.
Both cardinals and blood have long been symbols of vitality and in the Christian context, that vitality is everlasting. “By His blood we are freed from sin to serve the living God, to glorify Him, and to enjoy Him forever.” (Ephesians 1) Traditionally, the cardinal is symbolic of life, hope, and restoration.
