Mother’s Day celebrations happen every year on the second Sunday of May in Singapore, and it is a day where we show appreciation for all that our mothers have done for us throughout the years.
Of course, some argue that this love should be expressed on a daily basis, and not just on one special day of the year when we would present our mothers with a Mother’s Day bouquet and call it a day. I’m not saying that they’re wrong, but Mother’s Day reminds the busy people to take time out for their families, and it is also a day where we can show our mum even more love than usual. What’s wrong with showing some grand gestures of love such as gifting pretty bunches of flowers for mothers, in which you wouldn’t usually think of doing on a normal day?
What makes a good florist? How do florists remain top-of-mind when customers are looking for a reliable florist to cater to their floral needs? Well, we believe the answer is pretty straightforward. All customers want is to have the best bespoke flower buying experience irrespective of the occasion or how much they spend on a floral arrangement. A good florist doesn’t necessarily need to have the biggest shop or the widest international network of professional florists. To us, we strongly believe that in order to uphold the highest standards of floristry and to create designs that are fresh and innovative, the best way is still to take the time to build relationship with our customers, understand their needs and pain points and go the extra mile to help them make their loved ones feel special on all occasions.
It is not uncommon to discover talented florists who are able to design eye-catching, garden-fresh flower bouquets or modern flower arrangements in Singapore these days. Customers are spoilt for choice when shopping for blooms. Many florists and entrepreneurs offer a diverse array of affordable yet tastefully arranged bouquets with same day flower delivery service. Customers can also easily convey to florists the style of floral arrangements they want (e.g. English garden style, bohemian style or even rustic style), indicate what colours to avoid and discuss the symbolism and connotation of flower types when placing an order.
Flower-giving is one of the oldest practices in the world. Flowers are traditionally considered feminine, and as a young girl, I did not give 2 hoots about them. When I was young, nothing in my room gave clues to it belonging to a 10-year old girl, except if you were to open my wardrobe (my mother chose my clothes). Perhaps being the younger sibling to an older brother influenced my choices. When I was given the chance to pick a color for my room’s walls, I picked oyster grey. I had barbie dolls but I treated them as hair salon customers (they received awful haircuts). I scoffed at the color pink, played soccer with my neighbors, and caught spiders with the boys during recess. The only flowers I bothered about were the little ixoras found in bushes by the roadsides, where my brother and I would rip them off and pull out their yellow tips for their sweet nectar, like giant pollinating bees.
I also grew up in a fairly pragmatic household, where useful gifts (such as money) were favored over “frivolous” items. My childhood was ﬁne, but it did leave an imprint on my life as I grew up and began to experience things as a female person
Flower-gifting is a traditional form of gift-giving and this practice has spanned over thousands of years. Ancient Greeks, Romans, and the Chinese were the first known practitioners of the language of flowers. Various flowers make appearances in various art forms and some are highly-prized as regal objects. Today, flowers continue to play a prominent role […]
