valentine’s day checklist

Just as we’ve left our enthusiastic Christmas cheer and upbeat New Year greetings behind, the month of love has crept upon us. Valentine’s day never fails to drive men running for the next florist or chocolatier, and restaurants and cafes unleash promotions in the name of love.

14 Feb

14 Feb

Everyone knows that the festivities aren’t complete with some form of heart shaped gifts, dove or cupid emblems, and pink and red hues painted all over gifts. But surely there’s more to Valentine’s Day than simply romance and gifts? After all, showing affection to a loved one can be done anytime, anywhere. In the first place, February 14 was never a day for demonstrating one’s love for another. In fact, the whole celebration started in the third century in Rome, and ironically, is started when a stern ruler labeled love as an unnecessary emotion.

History

Valentine’s Day History


Records state that Emperor Claudius II had the notion that men were restricted from giving their utmost in battle, if their mind was on their wives or lovers. With a sweep of his hand, marriage was banned. Of course, this law did not pass without stirring fury and disappointment. Who could live without finding their soul mate? The concept was exactly as ridiculous as it sounded, and a certain brave, young priest called Valentine thought as much. Enraged, Valentine rebelled by marrying young couples, secretly defying the rule of Emperor Claudius II.

Yet, nothing escaped the eye of the emperor. Into prison went Valentine. Little snippets of records even suggest that Valentine himself ended up in a relationship with his jailer’s daughter. With Valentine already sentenced to death, no doubt they had little time to develop any further. Talk about star-crossed lovers. His parting words? “From your Valentine”, now a common phrase that gets butterflies fluttering in the receiver’s tummy.

It would be hundreds of years later, for his death on February 14 to be marked as a day to honour him, and for Valentine to be declared a Saint. There we go; Saint Valentine’s Day.

But why did people start giving flowers to each other? Well, Victorians had assigned different meanings to different flowers, and were able to communicate with simply those plants and not a single word. Talk about mysterious. Cards may have seemed like a better alternative, but they felt a message with your name on it was bad luck, was the start of gifting flowers with a somewhat secretive, romantic card.

No one’s a stranger to roses during Valentine. But why are they the go-to flower for any bouquet? Roses were the favourite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love, so what better way than using the very symbol of love for a day that celebrates it?

Rose Bouquet

Valentine’s Day Rose Bouquet – Flower Delivery

With the passage of time came the commercialization of the occasion. Valentine’s Day had evolved into gifts oozing in magenta and scarlet, and flowers or chocolates bundle in ribbon. It’s more about getting the most extravagant present than the most thoughtful one.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but it’s about time Valentine’s became more about thought than only extravagance. A handpicked bouquet along with an elegant card is one way to show how you feel.

Couples will never miss out on the opportunity to please their other half during an occasion like Valentine’s. Sometimes, the pressure can be an obstacle in making the day a memorable one, as one would be too focused on picking out imperfections to ensure everything goes smoothly. These suggestions might make the planning a little easier.

One simple date can make your lover’s Valentine’s. As long as it’s time well spent with a loved one, how can anyone argue about a wholesome date. Grab a few finger foods like sandwiches, pastries, or chips and settle them into a picnic basket. A quick ride to the park will take you to the bicycle rental area, where the both of you can get a tandem bike, a two-seater for riding together, or separate ones for riding side by side. Scenic trails lined by rustling trees and the occasional roadside blossom make the ride a quiet enjoyment. If you’re near the sea, you might even catch the sunset. Find a clear patch of grass to lay your mat and open up your treasure chest of goodies, and enjoy your little feast. By then you might be able to catch a sprinkle of stars in the obsidian sky above, which is the kind of romantic scene right out of movies. Plus, it’s easy on the wallet. Kidding. But we merely state the truth.

For the music fans, a small band gracing their presence with a classical song or your partner’s favourite tune would be perfect. A room could be booked away from prying eyes, where the your violin or singing quartet could saunter in and play before your partners surprised eyes. As long as there’s elbow room, you could also request for then to pop up in a diner while others look on enviously at the sweet sonnet.

For a deeper dive into romance, a high class meal at a classy restaurant will do the trick. Treat your partner like a prince or princess when your initial comment of ‘just bringing you to a cafe’ turns out to be an ‘atas’ location fit for royalty. Intricately designed dishes and flavourful premium selections will leave you and your partner munching in satisfaction, till the very last bit. Who doesn’t love food? A little antique wine wouldn’t hurt anyway too. To top it off, secretly send in a small bouquet of roses with the last dish. The look on your lover’s face as the waiter leaves with a smirk is one you’ll remember forever.

Dating and dining – flowers delivered to her.

Although jealousy has little space in a relationship, a small serving of it can be healthy as it shows how much you want to be The One for your partner. Perhaps you’ve heard about the lady killer in the office who’s just a tad too flirty with your girl. Or you’ve heard countless complaints about that other chick that won’t stop boasting about her Louboutin shoes from her man. Time to up your game with a little announcement of her status. 99 roses make a huge bouquet, and it’s impossible for it to go unnoticed in an office setting among nosy colleagues. Be it in person or through a delivery, she will be nothing short of surprised when she receives the gigantic arrangement. Other girls will be singing praises of the lucky lady’s boyfriend while guys stare on at the territorial gift. Said lucky lady will be more than happy to show that her heart is already reserved.

A truly romantic gesture would be a candle lit, homemade dinner. It doesn’t have to be some Michelin Star worthy dish, as the fact that you bothered to make time for such an intimate setting. When your girlfriend or boyfriend comes home to your surprise, you’ll be in for a great night. After a leisurely meal with idle chat and murmurs of sweet nothings, you can lead him or her away from the table and smoothly point out the trail of luxurious scarlet petals. Leading from the living room, it curves into the bedroom where another group of scattered petals paint the clean sheets. Your night will go out with a bang for sure.

Else wise, you might find that your long relationship is already written in stone, and you’re more than ready to take the next step. There’s no better time to propose than Valentine’s Day! If you two have always wanted to make that great Europe tour, suggest taking a break from the hustle of city life and pack your bags. Besides the obvious Paris, there are other places to pop the question. A quaint countryside cottage would make an adorable engagement photo, and the seaside offers the violet and magenta painted sky as a backdrop. Friends who are in on the plan can hang fairy lights and prop up flower garlands in a park before you lead your partner to the location under the guide of a walk. When the time comes, ‘yes’ will already be on the tip of their tongue.

Date night on Valentine’s can be a memorable event, but the gesture is all the more touching. When you and your lover are caught up in a world of your own, there’s little that can break that intimate connection.

But you haven’t settled the question of what kind of flowers should go into the bunch, have you? Let’s see; roses, roses, or roses? Valentine’s doesn’t have to only be about roses. With a whole array of flowers blooming all over the world, there are plenty of flowers to choose for your bouquet. Though each kind of flower can represent different things, there is no changing the beauty they exude.

The language of love may have once been used to bring across certain romantic messages, but today, with elegant cards and photo captions doing the work, flowers need not be mere message carriers. The joy of simply receiving beautiful flowers is immense, and a simple bouquet can be a great way to express thoughtfulness. A well-arranged bouquet can also mimic the endless blossom of a garden. Great for brightening your day!

Different combinations of flower species can even induce different moods! As Valentine’s Day is all about the sweetness of gifts, certain kinds can go unnoticed. Fret not, for we can broaden your perspective of flowers!

Bold colours and large bloom mixed into a Valentine’s bouquet can give a playful aura. Think of it as a friendly jab or a joke for breaking the ice; such an arrangement is sure to lighten up the mood. Vibrant pinks, yellows and blues can be placed at varying heights to create the image of flowers bursting to meet you, like free spirits rising in excitement. Tulips, carnations and delphinium are some flowers that come in various colours which stand out, making them great choices for a whimsical bouquet.

For the introvert who loves the peace and quiet, there’s always the calm, soothing bouquet. Does your significant other need a little stress relief, or a quick break from their hectic lives? Cool colours in a posy mixed with ferns are easy on the eyes and might soothe the receiver. With commonly purple and blue coloured larkspur or hydrangea, it’s like looking into the depths of the sea of the vast, cloud speckled sky. The sapphire and violet of such calming apologies bouquets may even appease even the fiercest of fires! (Though you now know you shouldn’t spark such flames again.)

Blending hot colours together lights the bouquet up immediately. It’ll light the recipient’s face up as well, as this sort of sensual conveys a deep love. Vibrant lilies and berries can be arranged to create a picture of passion, putting in place an amorous aura. Your affection will be made clear in such fiery flowers, and the bouquet can still make an eye catching centerpiece!

Hot favourites would be the most romantic combinations of pastel pins and purples. Such soft colours make the bouquet look cuter, or sometimes, elegant. Classic roses are often used in these fairy-tale like bunches, but lilacs and hyacinths can be used as well. A touch of baby’s-breath completes the picturesque bouquet. Simply stunning.

Other charming gifts like smiley flower plushies and little bundles of artifical flowers are alternatives some look at.

Introducing The Fun And Amusing World of Character Bouquets

24hrsCityFlorist.com started creating character flower arrangements or bouquets with a bit of ‘character’ since 2011. As a request from our customer, we attempted our first hello kitty character bouquet. Hello kitty is the popular ‘cat with no mouth’.

Hello Kitty Bouquet
Hello Kitty is a fictional character produced by Sanrio, a Japanese company. Hello Kitty is created by Yuko Shimizu and currently designed by Yuko Yamaguchi. She is depicted as an anthropomorphic white Japanese Bobtail cat-inspired character with a red bow. Originally hello kitty was made for pre-adolescent females, since the, the market has broadened to include consumers of all ages. Hello kitty is found in a variety of products ranging from school supplies to fashion accessories and high-end consumer products such as diamond necklaces. And now in the form of a fresh flower bouquet.
At the launch of our hello kitty bouquets, they were well received. Guys who know their girl friends are into hello kitty, sent this bouquet at the delight of the recipients. Even our celebrity DJ, Glen Ong ordered a hello kitty bouquet for his then girl friend (now wife) Jean Danker. 24HrsCityFlorist.com provided the flower delivery right to Mediacorp at Caldecott.

Puppy Bouquet
Inspired by the hello kitty bouquet, together with our senior florists, we decided to create and arrange a more generic and with a more mass appeal yet at the same time a well-loved character bouquet. That’s how our puppy bouquet was born. We conducted some research in the internet and found some puppy bouquets but none showed one arranged in a hand held bouquet. There were some European florists that use chrysanthemums to arrange puppy arrangements but given the taboo we Asians regard chrysanthemum flowers, we decided to use the next best flowers with lots of petals and at the same time keeping the cost low. Carnations was the obvious answer, and hence forth, carnations have been the-facto flowers we will use for most of our character arrangements. To our surprised, the puppy bouquet was and is still very well received. Firstly, the puppy is cute and very adorable. Puppy bouquet can be sent for any occasions from sending a love message to an apology message to birthdays and even get well wishes. That’s when we adopted the puppy into a basket arrangement too. The puppy bouquet has become our all seasons bouquet. We posted our puppy bouquet in Pinterest just over 2 years ago and has now garnered over 300 pins and re-pins.

Smiley Bouquet
We continue to experiment on other types of character bouquets. The smiley bouquet was one that was created soon after the puppy bouquet. That is none other then the well known ‘smiley’ bouquet made popular by the emoji we have come to recognize its frequent appearance in our daily casual texting. The smiley bouquet is a very simple but equally amusing bouquet, arranged with bright yellow carnations and with the eyes and mouth labelled with laminated imprints. Just like what the name says, the smiley bouquet brings about not just a smile but also a certain ‘emoji’ to the person who received it.

Angry Bird Bouquet
Following the smiley, we started receiving ‘customized’ request from customers. One we were challenged to attempt was Angry Bird. This once very popular character is a video game franchise created by Finnish company Rovio Entertainment. The series focuses on multi-colored birds who try to save their eggs from green-colored pigs. The character was originally released in Dec 2009 by for Apple iOS and by 2014, the game was downloaded over 3 billion times collectively. An undisputed great runaway hit during those years. Having feature angry bird character bouquet in our webstore, we have come to realized, a majority of our customers who bought the bouquet had similar message to the recipient – that is, requesting the recipient not to be angry and asking for forgiveness. Angry Bird bouquet is now known to be our popular ‘I’m sorry’ bouquet and is now featured under our Apology segment.

Elmo Bouquet
Soon after, we had another request from our customer to arrange Elmo- a Muppet character on the popular children’s television show Sesame Street. He is a furry red monster with a falsetto voice that many of use grew up learning and loving it. Our Elmo Bouquet which depicts The Elmo character has been like an evergreen favourite character to many – yes, even the younger generations.

Piggy Bouquet
Our next attempt on a new character bouquet was meant to appeal more to our local Chinese audience. The criteria was to have a character that is likeable, adorable, universal and most importantly a character most young girls would love. We literary created Piggy Bouquet from thin air. No, not the piglet from Winnie the pooh nor Ms piglet who appears in the television programme The Muppets. Piggy bouquet is your common everyday plumpish rosy pink piglet that could represent someone with a sensation appetite or someone who live to sleep – attributes that perhaps every one of us could have once possessed.

Panda Bouquet
The piglet bouquet would give rise to our next creation which is the Panda Bouquet. The panda bear or simply panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is easily recognized by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body. Needless to say, this adorable creature is well loved the world over not just for its cute and clumsiness but also its rarity. True to its popularity, the panda bear has its own following and the many panda fans around the world are testimony to how liked this bear is. In Singapore Sept 2012 , the popularity is fueled by the arrival of the male and female panda bears kai kai and jia jia. Singapore gone pandamania from then onwards.

Minion Arrangement
Unless you have been hiding under the rock for a long while, the Minions invaded Singapore in 2013 and melted the hearts and souls of many Singaporeans particularly the young at heart. No amount of scientific theories are able to explain how a bunch of yellow cuteness in the blue jumpsuit could sweep over Singapore with such impact leaving many of us even talking banana banana potatooo. It is totally 99% adorable, 1% despicable. First it was the minion toys, then the minions came in the form of huge plush figurines, tee shirts, mugs, hair clips and nail-art. Today, even the food that we eat not even spared from minionmania. Confectionaries and bakery stores and eateries are now capitalizing on this minion craze by offering minion-inspired cakes and minion cupcakes. How about minion flower arrangement we thought? In 2014, we hatched a plan to create precisely this yellow lump of head using yellow carnations and a specially made one-eye goggle to depict the despicable minion eyes. And the catchword we promoted with is “ Tell her she is One in a Minion! “ . Our minion table arrangement has connected many hearts, shed tears, bought warmth and built peace for the people who shared it with.

Fat Cat Bouquet
It wasn’t until 2015 we spotted an adorable cupcake decorated into an extremely fat cat with long whiskers and pointy nose. So adorable, it was sinful just eating it. We thought if the bakers can create a fat cat out of a cupcake, why we can’t create a fat cat out of a flower arrangement? The challenge had led us to design a somewhat spherical head made out of white carnations and pinned a nose with a few long cable ties to form the all familiar cat’s whiskers. Once done, we adored it very much and called it Fat Cat Bouquet.

Cookie Monster
In 2016, we experimented with dying carnations flowers and gotten just the right tone of blue for the inception of what is now known as our eye catching Cookie Monster Bouquet. With the signature big eye balls and his favourite chocolate cookies, cookie monster bouquet now looks very much like cookie monster – a character most of us would recognized. Just like Elmo, Cookie Monster is a Muppet in the long-running children’s TV show Sesame Street. He is best known for his voracious appetite and his famous eating phrases, such as “Me want cookie!”, “Me eat cookie!” and “Omm nomm nomm nom” (said through a mouth full of cookies). We wondered what would be a good phrase to tag on our newly created cookie monster bouquet. At first, we thought of the phrase “me want you, me eat you..” was too much of a caveman calling for a mate. Eventually we settled for something that would please the recipient when she receive a uniquely arranged Cookie Monster bouquet with a tagline that reads “I won’t trade you for all the cookies in the world.. “ still with a cookie sticking out of the mouth.

Pokeball Bouquet
Another game app that took the world by storm including Singapore is Pokémon GO. This is an augmented reality app created by Nintendo. Pokémon Go features a GPS-enabled map of the player’s real-world surrounding. After tapping on the creatures, the app opens up the smartphone’s camera, showing the Pokémon seemingly moving in the real world. Pokemon Go involves the capturing and training of a variety of fictional creatures called ‘Pokémon’ and using them to battle other trainers. PokeBall is a type of item that is critical to a Trainer’s quest, used for catching and storing Pokemon. We figured, a Pokeball was simple enough to create using fresh carnations and the tagline would simple be ‘Toss this Pokeball and tell her ~ “I choose you!” . You now have Pokeball Bouquet.

We at 24hrsCityFlorist will continue to create fun character bouquets and we hope our customers will come to adore them as much as we like creating them. We provide florist flower delivery anywhere in Singapore.

10. possesses strong interpersonal skills

Candidates without experience but meet all the requirements listed above will be considered to undergo a florist apprentice program once selected.

Background
Many flower shops in Singapore do not offer jobs to those without relevant flower arrangement experience. The main reason is because of the very high attrition rate for non-experience candidates. A majority of these candidates do not understand or appreciate what it takes to be a flower arranger or a florist working in a commercial/retail florist industry. It is a very expensive and time consuming exercise for any florist to train a new employee only to be told by the employee that he/she is no able to continue with the florist job.

As florist, we often hear candidates as saying that they wish to join the florist because ‘i have interest in flowers’ or ‘i like flowers’ worse – reasons such as “i want to give it a try”. As a florist shop like us, these reasons alone are not good enough. We are looking beyond just someone who have an ‘interest’ or ‘try it out first” attitude. We want someone who have a deep passion and a sense of seriousness to want to learn about flower arrangement.

Flowers And Emotions

by Jerry

Have you ever wondered why flowers since time immemorial still make the world’s best gift today? What is it about flowers that make people want to constantly associate themselves with?

People & Flowers

Flowers and us

Happy

The intrinsic nature of flowers – the fact that flowers are not everlasting; they wither and die, reminds us that life is such and is worth cherishing every moment of it especially those special ones. Nothing last forever in this world except time. We live only once in this life, for every good moment that comes by, we are compelled to celebrate it. It is in our innate nature to want to do so. Simply because we are by nature somehow pre-programmed to subconsciously know that special moments are unique and they will not occur exactly the same way again. To make these special moments last, we celebrate them so that they own a place in our memories for years to come.

Special bond between people and flowers

Sad

There is another draw to flowers that other gifts don’t come close to match. Humans reconcile flowers to be part of this world of evolution. The fact that when we look at flowers, the colour, the bloom and their fragileness, our inner sanctum of our being triggers that unexplained sense of joy, delight and hope. Even at times of sorrow and hurt, flowers are nature’s way of reminding us that life is precious, life is beautiful and we should treasure it and make the best of it. The beautiful blossoms of flowers give us a sense of wonder, a sense of hope, telling us there will always be sunshine after the rain and that exciting times await us.

Love

Flowers ignites our sense of love and passion. It is precisely the nature of flowers, that women are drawn to. The enchanting beauty, colours and smell of flowers trigger a string of emotions, the collective joy, love, care and hope flowers represents. They serve as a voice to conveying our hearts’ desire and feelings in ways words cant. If a picture tells a thousand words, flowers tell a million.

To Forgive, one has to put aside old differences, move beyond grievances and hurts and start afresh. Forgiveness be definition is the process of ceasing to feel resentment, indignation or anger against another person for a perceived offense, difference or mistake, or ceasing to demand punishment or restitution. And to be forgiven, one has to make the initiative to ask for apology. An apology is an act of expressing regret or asking pardon for a fault.

There is already a International Forgiveness Day in August, founded by the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance, but the Global Forgiveness Day on 7th July was founded by CECA (Christian Embassy of Christ’s Ambassadors), though really both days have essentially the same message; to forgive!

In honor of countless benefits of forgiveness, people all over the world united to celebrate Global Forgiveness Day annually on 7th of July. Almost everyone has been hurt by the actions or words of others. Unintentionally or not, they can make you feel angry, resent, bitter or indignant. Sometimes you will hold on to thoughts of revenge. However, decide to let go of those feelings is always the better way. It doesn’t mean that you ignore the person’s responsibility for hurting you but remit them without excuses. It’s when you embrace forgiveness and move forward. Forgiveness not only makes you happier and healthier but also higher self-esteem.
