The idea for "Wish Flowers" came about during my sister's diagnosis and ongoing battle with liver cancer. I wanted to send her some flowers and wanted something meaningful. With her ideas and input, Wish Flowers "bloomed". You choose the words you would like your flowers made from. The 12 flowers are on 9 inch stems and each is approximately 1.5 inches across. The bouquet shown is "Shannon's Wish". It contains two each of "Love", "Strength", "Hope", "Heal", "Blessings" and "Courage". You can order the bouquet as shown, or give me the words you want to use (up to 12) and I will create the papers to your specifications. They also come with a printed sheet explaining the wish created for your recipient. If you would like to create your own bouquet, just let me know the words you would like in the 'options' box. The flowers will arrive wrapped in tissue and tied with a ribbon (you can choose the color, just enter it in the 'options' box as well). I can include a hand lettered card at no extra charge, as well. WishFlowers are My own original creation and are copyright. .Please note the estimated creation times. These are only guidelines and I am usually able to ship within a few days. If you have a rush order, please message me to inquire about my current production times.
