MILDRED GARLAND IS LONG AND LUSH. SHOWN HERE WITH AUNT MARJORIE BURIAL SPRAY.
My grandma Mildred was the best noodle-maker ever. Despite the fact that she'd endured more hardship than most of us will, I never once heard her complain. When I told her I was getting divorced, she said, "How can I help you?" Years later, I introduced her to my new guy and told her we planned to marry. She said, "Honey, are you sure?" I was. Henry and I wheeled her to the nursing home's dining room, and as we got up to leave, she said with certainty, "Kris, this will be the last time I will see you." We both cried...and she was right.
The Mildred Garland is in memory of the last time you saw your loved one. It looks and feels like the love I still have for my grandma—abundant, sweet, and always heartening. At Toodleoo, we hand-tie our garlands using natural, compostable twine. Like all acts of love, this is an absorbing, time-intensive devotion.
Pair the Mildred or Shorty Garland with any of our burial sprays to lushly drape a casket or gravesite.
The Mildred Garland features: Eucalyptus, for purity + Olive branches, for peace + Magnolia leaves, for reverence for life + Incense Cedar leaves, for eternity + Bay Laurel leaves, for wisdom. Flowers are local when season allows.
Please order six days prior to the funeral or memorial gathering, or any time if you would like to place a garland on a grave. To ensure your flowers arrive dewy-fresh, we ship overnight or 2nd Day Air through UPS.
