Flower tiers have been opened using the pale pink ribbon at the base of the flower collection. Opened tiers reveal a three-part scene: the bottom section displays a uniformed man looking into a window of a home, watching a mother pray with her children; the middle tier displays a ship sailing in the ocean flanked by images of a young sailor on the right, and a young woman waving to the sailor on the left; the top tier displays two Cupids looking down on the two scenes below them. Each flower tier includes additional images of Cupids holding various items and in a variety of positions.
