Editor, The Beacon:
On Easter morning, throughout Downtown DeLand on Woodland Boulevard, storefronts display Christian crosses decorated with fresh-flower arrangements. Usually, one or more churches join together to create this pageantry, but this year the “go-ahead” came too late for the churches to plan.
That’s when Jennifer Strickland, owner of Stetson Flowers, at the corner of North Woodland Boulevard and West Plymouth Avenue, stepped up to a big “plate”!
Stetson Flowers built the crosses, decorated them beautifully, with artistry sensitive to the occasion, and then placed them at each storefront, as a tribute to the sacred Easter occasion.
If you missed this very special DeLand tradition, don’t miss it next year!
Thank you sincerely, Stetson Flowers, for sharing with your community!
