24hrs City Florist Shop At Lavender Street

Do you know that 24Hrs City Florist shop is located within Lavender Place building designated by URA Architectural Heritage award winning site.

Lavender Street

Lavender Street

The building consisting of two-storey shophouses and a handful of modern four-storey shop/flat developments. The architecture of the shophouses reflect the wide variety of architectural styles that were prevalent in Singapore then – Late, Transitional and Art Deco styles are evident.

Due to the rubber boom from 1900 to 1930, the newly-rich started a building frenzy in a bid to show off their wealth through their new buildings. The owner’s wealth was reflected in the extent of façade ornamentation and elements of European architectural styles and features used. In addition, many of these designs also featured distinct Eastern and local influences.

A row of 11 beautifully tiled and plastered Art Deco style shophouses at 161 Lavender Street was originally the premises of the Lee Rubber Company and owned by Lee Kong Chian. Lee was a supporter of Dr Sun Yat Sen’s Nationalist cause and this explains the plaster reliefs of soldiers carrying the Nationalist flag of the Republic of China on one corner façade pediment. This project won a URA Architectural Heritage Award in 1995 and demonstrates the sensitive integration of a new 4-storey rear extension – Nestled within the Jalan Besar Heritage Trail

Heritage Trail Singapore

Heritage Trail Singapore

The Jalan Besar Heritage Trail is a tale of two former swamps. First, we trace the urban development of a floodplain that once existed on the north bank of the Rochor River. Next, we chart the stories of the communities and cultures that sprung up around the muddy basin of Singapore’s longest waterway, the Kallang River.

Jalan Besar Heritage trail

The remnant swampland around Jalan Besar and the tidal flats of the Kallang Basin have long been reclaimed. Shophouses, temples and churches now occupy land once overgrown by mangrove trees and nipah palms. Farmland has given way to schools, hospitals and a stadium. And once bustling villages sustained by coastal trade have vanished as industries, housing developments and parkland emerged to add a new dimension to life on the eastern reaches of the Lion City.

Gone too, but certainly not forgotten, are New World and its gaudy host of performers who sang, danced and performed for citizens in an era when live entertainment was the only form of recreation in town. In between sets, the audience probably sipped soft drinks brewed and bottled by beverage factories located in the neighbourhood, which are, similarly, a mere memory today. Little missed, however, are the less pleasant elements of the area: the cattle and pig slaughterhouses, municipal refuse facilities, sawmills, oil mills, rubber factories and brick kilns that once polluted the rivers and almost certainly overpowered the senses of those who wandered too close.

24Hrs City Florist – A Truely Unique Singapore Florist

True to it’s name, 24Hrs City Florist is a florist located in central Singapore within the garden city of Singapore that provides 24hr flower delivery services anywhere in the island nation.

So what makes 24hrs City Florist so unique? Well, to start off, this is probably the only flower shop in Singapore with a physical storefront that opens and operates daily from 9am to next day 6am consistently throughout the year. This is especially convenient for those who are in need of floral gifts when most florists in Singapore are closed.

Similarly, their floral services are available on Sundays and public holidays. Yes, that includes Christmas and Chinese New Year too. For those who had the experience of wanting a floral arrangement during these holidays would appreciate how useful and important their service can be.

Hence, it comes as no surprise, that 24Hrs City Florist has been featured in various publications which includes an article entitled “Sleepless In Singapare” in the Sunday Times on 11 Nov 2016 as one of the retailers in Singapore offering late night serices.

Besides their long opening hours, 24Hrs City Florist offers a very wide range of fresh floral arrangements and I am not talking about just in quantity but also in variety, styles and designs.

Again, when it comes to uniqueness, 24Hrs City Florist creates ‘character arrangements’ depicting well known characters such as Minion, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Angry Bird, Spongebox Squarepants, Hello Kitty, Pokeball and many more using fresh floral! It doesn’t come as a surprise that this flower shop was singled out and was featured in local Chinese Variety show called ‘Bengpire’ in Aug 2016 as one of the interesting retailers offering not just services past mid night but also unique character bouquets in Singapore. Their full range of character-bouquets can be found here.

Although 24Hrs City Florist is known for her after office hour services and character-arrangements, did you know, this flower shop was initially a specialist florist for funeral flower arrangements. Their history could be traced back as early as 2000 when their floral arrangements were mainly on candle table spray, flower bed, casket top, floral crosses and floral photo frames. There is no wonder why until today, this florist offers a wide range of sophistication of funeral and condolences floral arrangements not many other florists offer. A cursory look into their website revealed that they have a huge range of condolence floral arrangements from a simple floral condolence stand to a 1.5m long stretched floral arrangements to heart-shape condolence stands to memorial wreaths.

24Hrs City Florist has been keeping up with trends too. In recent times, they have introduced an extensive range of Korean styled hand bouquets, Conical bouquets, and flowers-to-go floral carry bag and mini garden arrangement they called them ‘cherish box’.

Hipster vs Traditional Florists

At the mere mention of ‘hipster’, one can picture a sashaying woman donning an oversized top and ripped shorts, pinching the edge of her sunglasses with a smirk, simply the epitome of stylish. Meanwhile the mainstream or old fashioned trail behind, deemed unable to find their unique style like the former.

hipster florist

Despite all that exaggeration, it’s not entirely untrue; it seems the younger generation find anything labelled ‘hipster’ more appealing. Bouquets carrying that air of sophistication are sure to gather admiring glances and of course, the likes on one’s Instagram. Hop onto the bandwagon and you’ll find yourself immersed in splashes of rainbow colours, unicorn vibes, and galaxy patterns, even finding Korean styles imbedded in sweet bouquets that many show off on social media.

Youths are easily drawn in by anything hipster, not wanting to fall into the monotony of mainstream trends, instead hoping to seem unique; don’t even try to deny it! Well, young florists have heard their call for something more distinct, and style their lovely flower bundles according to the trends they so desire. Using pastel flowers, pale DIY wrapping paper, burlap, kraft paper, netting and giving bouquets an air of rusticism turns their art intoinstaworthy works.

Being unwilling to conform also means young florists use a large variety of flowers, many which traditional florists might not use. Are chrysanthemums doomed to be mere funeral flowers? Are white and pastel flowers the only ones to accompany a bride down the aisle? That doesn’t seem to be the case any more, if those new to the florist scene have anything to say about it. Even succulents and fruits have a part to play in their new, exotic bouquets, breathing new life into typical flower arrangement styles. Such deviation from the norm has been welcomed by flower lovers everywhere, and have attracted crowds to appreciate the art of flower arrangement.

But that doesn’t mean old school has to be kicked to the curb. Traditional florists have integrated the styles hipsters appreciate into their own work, and their bouquets are just as amazing as any other. With their experience in the field, there are a lot more than the effort that goes into a stylish arrangement, and their flowers are sure to be your picture perfect gift. Merging your typical professional touch and the hipster trends of today, they are able to maintain the beauty of bouquets yet infuse modern elements into their art. With such a poignant combination of past and present, what better way would you rather have your bouquet?

Then again, one cannot let the passion of both types of florists and flower shops go unnoticed either. Behind the rosy glow of floristry is hours of hard work and pricked hands and even to the point of making sure that the ‘flower delivery‘ services are delivered promptly to the recipients. Though times may change, florists have learnt to adapt accordingly and stay nimble ready to respond to the consumers’ demands. Whether hipster or traditional, young or old have their own unique traits that everyone can appreciate. Whatever your reason for buying flowers, just know that every bouquet comes with a loving touch and well thought, crafted by the people who have an unlimited love for flowers!

A Word For Your Thousand Actions

bouquet with a message

written by 24hrsCityFlorist.com

There comes a time when you’re grasping a card in your hand, scratching at your head helplessly as you wonder what on earth you’re supposed to write in order to please the lucky receiver of your gift. For those who aren’t poetically inclined, finding the perfect phrase to accompany your heartfelt present can be absolutely daunting.

A beautiful bouquet is important but equally important is the message that comes with it. A beautiful message can touch the heart of the receiver and in some occasions, bring tears to her eyes. A fresh floral gift accompanied by a good message almost certainly will draw smiles and bring cheer to the recipient. It doesn’t hurt to give a little and care a bit more. Turn somebody’s day around for the better is never wrong. Here at 24HrsCityFlorist.com we don’t just want to provide elegant bouquets or bouquet delivery, but we want to help reach out to people and help touch the hearts and minds of people you care most for.

We hope by listing some of our favorites here could unlock the creativity within. Start inspiring and encourage others because in return you will be encouraged too.

Love & Romance & Valentine’s

“i realized how much i miss you, only after you had gone away. I don’t know what to do or say.. but to send you these flowers for today..”

“Somewhere between all our laughs, long talks, studpid little fights and all our lame jokes.. i fell in love”

“I now understand how it really feels like when they say.. ‘absense makes the heart grow fonder'”

“I will love you forever. LOL! I can’;t live that long”

“”I hate looking at the stars because I look at the same ones as you do , wihtout you”

“Love is missing someone whenever you’re apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you’re close in heart”

Here are some love quotes adopted from popular korean dramas:

“If you’re really in love, appearances aren’t important. The best house is the one you build in each other’s hearts” – Winter Sonata

“With you, my heart has found its rhythm” – Angel Eyes

“You told me to forget you. You hoped that I forget you, right? I’m sorry. I wanted to forget you, but I couldn’t do it.” – The Moon That Embraces The Sun

“When you love a woman, she becomes a drink. She becomes the moon. She becomes the song. Then she turns into your world.” – Flower Boy Ramen Shop

“People who love each other end up reuniting. No matter how far apart they are, they will reunite in the end. Love is something that returns.” Stairway to Heaven

“To feel love again, you only need a moment” – It’s Okay, That’s love

“At times, the road seems far and you may shed tears with a say heart, but until the day everything becomes a memory, let’s be each’s resting place.” – Heirs

“In life, the thing that is important other than spirit is love. Even if you are poor, if there is love, you become a millionaire.” – Goong

“The best miracle of all miracles is making the heart of the person you love beat.” – Good Doctor

“Love is when you give half of yourself. And in that space, fill it with half of the other person.” – Flower Boy Next Door.

“Because of you I laughed, got mad, fought, and felt pain. It was all a first for me. I didn’t think i had a heart. I tried so hard not to let anyone in but you were the first person that I ever let into my heart.” – Bride of the Century

There are many ways to expressing your heart felt emotions to the person you like. But there are times when loving someone is to do what’s best for her and that includes leaving her and letting her go. It’s painful to do so especially when you can’t tell her the real reason why you are doing so. For words that cannot be expressed, flowers are the next best option.

There’s nothing better than receiving a romantic message along with a gorgeous bouquet or a box of chocolates. Nope, this doesn’t have to happen only on Valentine’s, for this sweet message will make her melt immediately, at any time, any day.

“If my love were an ocean, there would be no more land. If my love were a desert, you would see only sand.”

You don’t have to be the next Robert Frost to come up with poems. Take this simple verse, print in delicate font and deliver it to your partner in a dainty, intricately designed card, and there you go, a card that ensures your lover knows how deep your feelings are!

“No matter where I went, I always knew my way back to you. You are my compass star.”

This affirmation of your love is easily understood, and will make your partner realise their importance in your life. Doesn’t simply reading this make you want to sigh dreamily?

Mother’s Day or Father’s Day

“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.”
“May your Mother’s Day be filled with as much happiness as you brought to my childhood!”

From young till now, you’ve never doubted your mum’s faith in you, so of course you’d like to show that you appreciate her sturdy presence. These sincere phrases are definitely able to capture that thought in these sweet words.

“Mum, thanks for putting up with a spoiled, ungrateful, messy, bratty child…
… like my sibling!”

Got a sister or brother and want to one up them? Inject a little humour into your message to spruce up what would usually be a mushy message! If you’re preparing to surprise your dad instead, simply replace the necessary words; these phrases are sure to touch the hearts of either parent.

Graduation

“When people tell you not to believe in your dreams, and they say ‘Why?’, say ‘Why not?’ ”
“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”

Put away all those cliché quotes about success and failures, because all you need is a little encouragement in your gift to a to-be graduate. With a firm tone, your message will show how much confidence you have in that person, and adding a challenge in can help to ignite that fiery passion as the graduate enters the workforce.

Birthday

“Birthdays come around every year, but friends like you only come once in a lifetime.”

It’s rare to find people who understand everything about you indeed, and you should very well let your friends know that. On their special day, show them how special they are with the touching message on your card.

“Don’t just count your years, make your years count.”

For a more serious tone to guide your reckless friend, send this along with your gift; the best of friends are the ones who speak the truth, no matter what. They’ll thank you for your thoughtfulness soon enough

With this bounty of caring and sincere phrases, you’ll never end up speechless when writing to your loved ones!

A Piece of Mother Nature for Mother’s Nurture

mother’s day

After burying yourself in your work load day after day, it’s easy to become all too engrossed, forgetting about the ones that await you at home. With Mother’s Day coming up, have you prepared the celebration necessities?

Whenever you stumbled upon obstacles that drag you down, you know you’ve always got your mother to count on for support. Be it simple words of encouragement or a piping hot bowl of homemade food, she finds a way to tell you she has your back. You can tell her that too, and you can’t go wrong by sending your message in a bouquet!

Celebrating Mother's Day with Flowers

Celebrating Mother’s Day with Flowers

No mum can resist the appeal of beautiful flowers bundled up just for her! Mushy ‘I love you’s and sincere ‘Thank you’s can be conveyed in that single gift, for flowers have always carried sentiments and various meanings. You don’t even need to be well-versed in the language of flora or be a fan of the vintage to appreciate the aesthetic of a glorious bouquet propped up in a vase. Just a single glance can be so soothing, and exactly what mums need to let them know that they are admired. Has she been rushing about her work days just like you? She’ll need a breather from the mundane and tumultuous city. Or maybe she was surrounded by bumbling children, cleaning up the little messes they make while hushing their screeches and gurgling. A little appreciation would be nice for the free babysitting. Even if she has merely been idle at home, slowly going about her day with old friends, she could use the reminder that you’ll always have her in your thoughts and in your heart.

Graduation – The Day The Seedling Sprout

graduation bouquet called alumni

graduation hand bouquet

In a sea of black and navy blue, the graduates huddle and nervously adjust their robes. Some are tense, some are excited, but everyone knows that this is a milestone they can be proud of, an event that sets in stone the reward they have put in so much effort for. With their mortarboards on and looking sharp, they are ready to reap the fruits of their painstaking labour.

Graduation day marks the start of a student’s intrepid foray into the workforce. Finally free from the chains of academic pursuit, it is most definitely a day to be remembered. While looking smart and polished is key, a splash of colour to match the upbeat mood would serve to differentiate one from the crowd, not to mention create the ideal setting for instaworthy pictures to commemorate the occasion. There’s no better way to congratulate a graduating student for a job well done during graduation than a brilliant bundle of extravagant flowers!

Mo Yeon Bouquet

Mo Yeon Bouquet

Classy bouquets can come in all forms and flowers when you make a purchase with us. An korean inspired graduation bouquet would be our Mo-Yeon Bouquet named after the Mo-Yeon in The Descendants of the Sun popular Korean TV series. When you think of a flower that brings the most cheer, you’d likely think of sunflowers, and we’re never short on those bright yellow blooms in our elegant bouquets. Roses add a sentimental touch; they’re certainly not just for romantic occasions, for their vibrant crimson pairs up nicely with the sunflowers. A scattering of statice adds a bit of calm to the intensity of the duo, the cool purple soothing the fiery, warm colours. With the final padding of smooth elongated leaves and little specks of emerald green and white, you have the bouquet of your dreams!

Bundling all these beauties up in pitch black wrapping ensures that the graduation bouquet adheres to the formality of the ceremony while still exuding sophistication and refinement. Isn’t such a gift exactly what the graduates would need?

(Referencing http://www.24hrscityflorist.com/sweet-sunshine.html)

Think of those days spent burning the midnight oil, staring at a screen or sheet of paper with hooded eyes, their mug of coffee already cooled during the countless hours of ‘mugging’. After all the sleepless nights and stressful days leading up to their big exams, the graduates you see on that day need the comfort and that proverbial pat on the back that only you can provide. A little piece of nature brought to them in a fancy bouquet tells them it’s time to chill, and shows that you’re right with them, as you have been along every step that they took during their journey of education.

These graduates may be taking the plunge into the deep waters of society, but knowing that they’ve got friends and family right beside them can make it much less unnerving. Graduation flowers or graduation bouquets are a great reminder of their loved ones’ presence and support, a wish for only the best for the receiver. On that special day, you shouldn’t miss out on a dazzling bouquet to spice up any glamorous graduation pictures. Just remember, be careful to toss your mortar but not the flowers!

You can send flowers and arrange for flower delivery in Singapore from 24hrscityflorist.com

Preserved Flowers

Quite possibly the epitome of beauty, fresh bouquets are always enticing to look at.

Alas, almost as if such beauty was forbidden, flowers have been blessed (or cursed) with a short lifespan — what starts off as blooming, bright and vivacious may end up as a noxious pile of matter in a matter of weeks or even days. Though we still appreciate the aesthetic of any bouquet, no matter how long we want to maintain these bouquets, they never seem to last as long as we hope, even if we had showered them with love and care.

Enter the preserved flowers. A solution for the fruitless task of self-preserving your flowers (and your sanity), these angelic blossoms are the closest you can get to the best of both worlds. Using unique preservation techniques, the beauty of the bouquet is maintained but yet its longevity is extended as well. Why dwell on the usual dry, passé and short-lived flowers when you can easily pick up a preserved flower arrangement, prop it in your living room and admire it for as long as you wish? A beautiful flower is always a fine conversation piece. It could add a fresh touch to your usual interior style or spice up any room you want. Want to tell someone how much you admire them? Just pick a quality preserved flower piece and send it to them with your sincere thoughts displayed on clean, crisp card.

No, this isn’t the kind of dried flower that crumbles easily. A complex chemical treated method ensures that freshly cut flowers don’t end up dehydrated, and that they can keep their lovely natural look while staying strong through the days to come. Less care is needed after the process is complete, so you are able to keep a fuss-free floral piece right in the comfort of your home. Today’s modern preservation techniques from Japan and Korean deliver top-notch blooms, texture, colour and even fragrance.

Here @24hrsCityFlorist , we arrange preserved flowers ourselves. In fact, we have some fantastic preserved flowers arrangement that you might just fall in love with – they are unique and available only from 24HrsCityFlorist.com

Ever blossoming, the Korean trend flourishes in Singapore

Perhaps it started with the popular Goblin K-drama, where a simple buckwheat flower was used to send a love message to the receiver. Or maybe it was Descendents of the Sun that stole everyone’s breath with its intensity and bittersweet romance. Either way, Koreans dramas have set alight a blazing trail that many locals have gladly stepped onto, where fans hold Korean styles and products in high esteem.

The popularity of Korean dramas K-pop created the Korean wave that swept across not just Singapore but most of the world, and fans of the pop culture have only grown as people catch onto trends. Die hard fans probably know every aspect of the pop culture like the back of their hand. If you’re clueless in this area, we can get you up to speed right here.

With a fluffy bouquet in hand, given by a mysterious yet kind stranger, the female protagonist graduates with a smile. The pure white cotton combined with the simple brown wrapping paper gives off a dreamy aura, where the pale colours are a delightful mix with the solid greens nestled among the blooms. Though winter brought along the cold and caused trees to barren, the bouquet has given a touch of warmth and made her day a little more special.

Soft Toy

Soft Toy

Not your typical furry animal plush, but still immensely adorable. Without their romantic interests by their sides, the male protagonists from Descendents of the Sun dragged these indignant toys along as companions on their dates. Their mischievous smiles, smooth fur and stout legs make them cuddly girlfriends indeed; no wonder the men were so enamoured!

http://cdn.koreaboo.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/15350649_1200451680008057_5986443 327484968131_n-2.jpg

You might not expect the huge DotS toy to fit into a bunch of flowers, but you can still find a “인형꽃다발”, which is a doll bouquet. Gaining traction among fans of the Korean style is a bouquet featuring small stuffed character dolls and adorned with various colourful flowers. Such doll bouquets can contain all kinds of famous characters, like Pokemon or Disney’s Lilo And Stitch. Adjusting the flowers to keep with the colour scheme and using delicate craft paper creates a magnificent bouquet that is cute yet stylish. Pastel pinks and blues make such sweet gifts; just look!

Baby’s breath is a rather significant blossom in the Korean bouquet scene, possibly because of it’s tiny and silky white blooms. Even its name suggests its innocent theme, adding an idyllic touch to any bouquet. In the above picture, combining it with light brown wrapping paper makes the bouquet minimalistic, and enable the focus to remain on the adorable Pikachu in the centre. Finishing off with wisps of white craft paper at the bottom compliments the rusticity of the gift!

If you think it’s a little plain to have simply white flowers, or that the plush toy is a little too large, Singapore’s very own 24hourscityflorist has the perfect posy for you! These durable baby’s breath can be dyed some vibrant colours and bundled into elegant bouquets as such.
http://www.24hrscityflorist.com/korean-baby-s-breath-bouquet.html​ (I’d suggest a picture that’s more candid and doesn’t have the watermark?)

What says classy more than sky blue and lilacs? These cool colours can sooth any temper and brighten the darkest of days! Combined with that snowy white, the flowers mimic a picturesque garden right in your hands. Black wrapping completes the sophisticated bouquet, with a simple knot, and it’s ready to be sent to the lucky receiver! Korean baby’s breath bouquets or a bunch of forget me not flowers bouquet are certainly a heavenly sight to behold.

Few are truly strangers to the Korean fad going round, but perhaps the idea of even bouquets having a Korean style is new. With the influx of romantic dramas, fans might have picked up on the message and decided to take action; sending beautiful blooming bestowals for their loved ones! Gifts featured in the shows also end up being a suitable choice for sending to other fans of the shows. Shopping for presents on special occasions can be such a chore, but Korean style arrangements and bouquet wrapping is a surefire way to show your sentiment. With delicate flowers like baby’s breath, Korea’s wrapping style of using kraft paper and their minimalistic arrangement, the gorgeous bouquets are great presents to show your appreciation!

Remember how they say ‘If it didn’t appear on social media, it didn’t happen at all’? If you’re going to join in the trend, better make it Insta-worthy, right? Many Instagram users have hopped right onto the Korean trend by posting their most elegant flower bouquets under soothing lighting and posing happily with their gifts. No doubt the quaint bouquets and their unique arrangement with rustic or pastel wrapping have caught the eyes of many youngsters. Since western pop culture dominate the mainstream, particularly that of America, hipsters have moved onto Korean trends. Veering away from typical western styles, Korean flower arrangements have been deemed hipster, and getting one of your own shows how sophisticated you are, rather than lagging behind in trends.

While western bouquets are usually facing skywards, with the blooms in their best view when seen from above and more tightly knit, Korean bouquets have flower that are more spread out and front facing, viewed best from the front when held vertically. This arrangement allows them to be placed in a box and presented that way, and if it’s a doll bouquet, the receiver catches sight of it immediately, brightening their day at once. Korea’s wrapping paper being kraft papers makes the bouquets artisan, and the occasional use of burlap provides a more rustic feel. Though both types can act as beautiful presents, the Korean wave means that Korean flower arrangements adhere to the hipster culture and might be viewed as the classier choice.

24 Hrs City Florist will never fail to deliver the most gorgeous flowers for you and your loved ones. With local flavour blended into the popular Korean style bouquet, you’re sure to leave with a smile. Some of the best Korean flower arrangements in Singapore can be found here with us! Whether you’re a traditional or a hipster bouquet, Korean styled bouquets are for everyone and anyone!

valentine's day checklist

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.

dining

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.

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.

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.
