immediately following the announcement "I now present to you the
class of 2001". Imagine the awesomeness from the view of the audience.

a classmate who passed away prior to graduation. This is a very touching
and moving tribute.

Given the symbolic nature of the butterfly, many people choose to release
butterflies as part of the funeral or memorial service of a loved one.
Here are a few ways butterflies are used for funerals:
The Lone Butterfly - This is the release of a single butterfly.
Families are comforted by the image of the butterfly accompanying the
spirit of their loved one on this final journey.

FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS WITH LIVE BUTTERFLIES

live butterflies to their flower arrangements. We can provide butterflies
to florists for this purpose along with complete directions for feeding
the butterfly throughout its lifespan.

Butterflies are a unique and memorable addition to a baby shower or
bridal shower. A butterfly centerpiece can be displayed or an individual
release can be planned.
Show off your spectacular gardens by inviting butterflies to your next
garden party. We can supply a centerpiece display, as well as paperware
to complete the theme.. If you're in our local area, we can provide
a seminar on Butterfly Gardening.
Butterflies offer a new and unique way to raise funds for organizations
like church groups, schools, scouts and charities.
Youth groups have raised money for their projects by offering church
members the opportunity to buy a butterfly in memory of or in honor
of a loved one. These butterflies are then released one morning following
the church service. This is a great addition to an Easter Sunday service.
It can also be used as an educational experience by ordering caterpillars
instead of adult butterflies and allowing students to raise them for
Charity organizations can use butterflies to raise money by selling
butterflies for a mass release. An example of this would be to sell
a butterfly for release in honor of or in memory of someone affected
by cancer. Then the butterflies could be released massively prior to
a walk-a-thon or other fundraising event.

people to your business.
