MANILA- Dying to admit your feelings? You can say it with these unusual flower arrangements.

These "Pamatay na Valentine's Flowers" can express how you feel, sans the usual sweet professions of love, but with a bit of humor.

Local flower shop Saint Jo Flowers' "Pamatay" collection, released in time for Valentine's day, features funeral-inspired flowers with a sash carrying witty pick-up lines.

Jojo Santiago-Calderon, the shop's creative director said the concept was formed in collaboration with Y&R Advertising and Branding, a firm that they regularly supply flowers to.

"Everyone's tired of the usual eh. Yung roses, bouquet, so we thought of doing something different," Calderon said in a phone interview with ABS-CBN News.

Each set-up stands at 1 foot tall and costs P1,000, according to Calderon. Flowers can be upgraded from the basic all-white setup but will incur additional costs.

Witty pick-up lines used in the flowers all have a reference to death such as "Patay na patay ako sa'yo," "Patay, mahal na kita" and "Patay ako sa BF mo" for those who have feelings for that girl who's already taken.

The offer is available until February 20 and is for pick-up only at their stores in Fiesta Market in Bonifacio Global City and Glorietta 1.
