It’s the last day of 2013 today, and nostalgia is taking over our mood as we’re browsing through our own photo galleries on Facebook. Spring was a colourful affair; we got new sign writings on our delivery cards and business cards in summer; our Waterloo store opened in June; and since then we have been putting together beautiful bespoke bouquets, baskets, flower pots, vases, wreaths, tribute flowers, etc. Since June, we have been interacting with many lovely customers like yourself; taking valuable feedback on our services; and also writing our blog in order to let you know about various aspects of flowers. Whilst we gear up for the new year 2014, it’s a great time to recall some wonderful memories of 2013 pictorially.
2013 has been a year of lovely bespoke floral designs for us. We’re glad that many of you have come to our stores, spoken to us at length about your requirements and expectations, and have taken home Canada goose Discount lovely customised bouquets and baskets. Some of you were looking for a red rose with a diamante centre; whereas some of you wanted a customised memorial pot, and it has been great for us to see that most of you were satisfied with our final products and / or our advice. Our bouquet creations were the most favoured amongst other products. The bouquets had a perfect seasonal flavour too: we tucked in little gypsophila florets in spring, smiling sunflower cups in summer, and anthurium-esque leaves in autumn.
Our potted plants were a big hit in 2013 despite the fact that we’re florists and not a greenhouse or a nursery. Many of you purchased potted plants for your own home or for gifting, and we discovered from you the reason for your appreciation of our creations. Unlike most nurseries or greenhouses that compromise on the gifting aesthetic value of the plants, our potted plants often come in cute coloured pots and boxes; with gift tags, bouquet-wrappers or ribbons, etc. We also do special (read unconventional) pots like the chrysanthemum plant in an oversized cup and saucer posted alongside! This assigns a great gift value to the potted plant, and this definitely went down well with our customers in 2013. We’re thrilled, and we want to get better in 2014!
Lastly, we thought we did very well in stitching special flowers for your buttonhole; and in decorating an ornate candlebra or two for your table decoration. We know the importance of a perfect wedding day bouquet, and could create beautiful bridal and bridesmaid bouquets and baskets as per your requirements. To prevent any last-minute run-down on sourcing flowers and also to make the best arrangements for your wedding, we often requested customers to give us ample preparation period. Having said that, we were also able to take urgent requests, in case of unexpected events like a funeral service: our expert staff ensured that flowers are delivered on the same day (or the following day in some cases). As our business-partner Paul mentions, prioritising customer needs and delivering quality service have been our biggest strengths this year, and we shall continue to tread on this feature of ours.
