24hrsCityFlorist.com started creating quirky bouquets 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’.
The latest addition into our family of quirky bouquets or character bouquets or fun bouquets is our quirky bouquet – three adorable faces arranged with chrysanthemom balls and red roses and colourful gerberas. A fun way to cheer someone up at the office of home.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.com will continue to create quirky and fun character bouquets and we can help spread a little cheer, a little light heartedness to everyone. We provide florist flower delivery anywhere in Singapore.
We recently launched our new online service that allows users to ‘Design Your Own Bouquet’ . It puts the ‘creative’ flare onto the hands of the user and in 3 simple clicks, their customized bouquet is ready for delivery on the same day. We believe we are probably the first florist in Singapore offering such online service.
It took us roughly 6 months to conceptualize this ‘design your own bouquet’ feature and the bulk of time was rendered into ensuring the right style of bouquets fit into the right colour scheme and right combination of wrapping. You may check out this feature directly at our website here: https://www.24hrscityflorist.com/design-your-own.html
Patrons of 24HrsCityFlorist.com are now capable of customizing their own bouquet with our new release of our latest online feature, ‘Design Your Own Bouquet.’ This novel feature allows people to have a custom bouquet in three simple steps and all can be done on one webpage and have the bouquet delivered same day.
How It Works
Click on the tab ‘Design Your Own’ and you will arrive at our ‘Design Your Own Bouquet’ page, users are asked to identify three of the major components of the bouquet that they want. First of is the type of main flower, around which the designs and accents will revolve in. There are over five choices of main flowers, each with their own bouquet types associated with them. Main flower type choices include the usual ones like roses, hydrangeas, sunflowers, tulips and more.
Next, users are given the choice of what bouquet type they want their main flower to come in. These designs are reliant on the kind of main flower they have chosen in the previous step. Prices may vary depending on the bouquet type as well as on the accents used in the bouquet.
Finally, once the customer is satisfied with the floral counterpart of their chosen bouquet, then they are given the chance to choose the type of wrapper that it comes in. The price also varies with the choices, depending on the texture, colour and style of the wrappings. Upon clicking on wrapping choices, guests are given a digital preview of how their custom-bouquet will look like, allowing them to properly customise according to their preferences.
Each bouquet will be hand crafted and arranged by our florists accordingly to the user’s design – this will certainly give it an even more personal touch. After choosing a custom bouquet, interested buyers are given the option to choose the bouquet through a delivery or self-collection from the store.
Benefits of Custom Bouquets
This new feature makes the common social practice of flower-giving even more personal as it allows givers to customise a bouquet according to the recipient’s interests. The main type of flower, as well as the accents, can be customised to accommodate a person’s favorite colours, combinations and more.
As compared to giving pre-packed bouquets from most florists, 24HrsCityFlorist.com’s latest offerings has a more personal touch that people are sure to appreciate. Pre-pasked bouquets aren’t usually satisfactory in the sense that the combinations may not work for whoever the bouquet is being given to, or elements that people want to go together aren’t usually in the same bouquet. This feature remedies that as users are given the chance to design their own bouquet orders.
Now, bouquet giving isn’t simply a matter of choosing a bouquet from pre-packed ones, but carefully handpicking each element to perfectly suit the recipient. It communicates a greater sense of interest and thoughtfulness about the person’s preferences, which can then be exhibited by the very personal bouquet choice.
Interested buyers may enjoy this latest online feature from 24HrsCityFlorist.com In just a few simple steps, you can design your own bouquets online and have it delivered same day to enjoy a more personal flair.

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

Luckily for lovebirds, Chinese Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday this year, so there is no excuse not to treat your significant other to a second Valentine’s blow out. Here are our pick of rose bouquets for this special day:
For as long as anyone can remember, flowers have been given as a gift for all sorts of different occasions. Valentine’s Day is perhaps the day where flowers get the most play, with rose bouquets in particularly high demand, nut they truly are the perfect gift for any occasion. Roses are a perfect example of how flowers can be used to convey a specific motion or feeling. Red roses are all about love and passion, while yellow roses are often used to convey friendship and feelings of gratitude. There truly is a rose for all occasions, but that can also be said for any flower.
When you visit a florist, you can’t help but smile as you catch sight of the flowers on display and smell the delightful scents that each give off. It’s not surprising that you feel this way, as research has shown that flowers have a way of making people feel happy, even when they are feeling at their very lowest point. It is perhaps because of those feelings that flowers have become commonly used during funerals. Condolences flowers are a very common gift, and while their color and beauty may seem at odds with the sadness of the event, it is also the traits that they bring that can make the day a little brighter for all involved.
If you are trying to think of a gift that will let someone know that you are thinking about them, flower delivery is perhaps the best way to do so. While the flowers themselves are often enough to get the recipients heart racing, the fact that you can attach a card with a personal message makes it all the more special. Even though the flowers were delivered by someone from the store you purchased them at, the recipient is often left feeling as though it was you who handed them over personally.
Flowers are a great way to fill a space and make people feel at home in their new house. This is especially true if the new home does not yet have all the furnishing and accessories in place. A bare room can take on a whole new vibrancy once colorful flowers have been added into the mix. These types of flower gifts convey the blooming of a new life in a new place, which is also why flowers ate a great gift for Mother’s who have just given birth.
The gift of flowers in one that bring almost instantaneous joy to the person receiving them. We have all become so caught up in the fast paced world that we live in that we often forget to take a moment to stop and look at the beautiful things nature provides. Simply looking and smelling flowers from a Singapore florist can take you out of that hectic schedule and back to nature, even if only for a few moments. That is a feeling you can’t really get anywhere else, and is just one of the reasons why flowers make a great gift.
As we celebrated Mother’s day last month, fathers are not forgotten either. This Sunday, June 15 is Father’s day. Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Father’s was first celebrated in the 20th century in the United States to complement the popularity of Mother’s Day. Today, many countries celebrate Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June, though it is also celebrated widely on other days.
Father’s Day is a great time to remind Dad , he has a place in your heart. True to some extend, dads are notoriously hard to buy gifts for. After all, the classic tie can only be presented so many times ,which incidentally ranks as the most popular of all Father’s Day gifts. Golf clubs and hammers—don’t ask—are also popular presents.

We are honoured to be able to create two extra large condolences flower stand arrangement for bereaved family of the founder of popular restaurant chain No Signboard Seafood restaurant, Madam Ong Kim Hoi who passed away on Thursday 30 Jan 2014 at the age of 74.
Chuckle all you may, but this unusual name for a restaurant was concocted by the patrons of No Signboard Seafood themselves with several branches in Singapore, Jakarta and Macau. Founded in 1981, it is now known island-wide for its creative and original recipes. Besides the chilli crab, the crispy cereal crayfish is a hot favourite and it’s no wonder. The juicy and succulent crayfish encrusted with sweet cereal is a pleasant burst of flavours while the crispness of the dish makes it a joy to dive into. The Hokkien-style steamed fish goes well with rice, especially if you’re fond of the natural sweetness of silky tofu.
We arranged two condolences flower stand measuring 1.5m wide by 1.8m tall each for the funeral as featured in the article. Below is the extra large condolences stand.
Our new branch at International Plaza is now 2 weeks old. We like to thank our customers, friends and family members for their support and well wishes.

Brassica is a members of this genus are collectively known either as cabbages or mustards. Crops from this genus are sometimes called cole crops, a phrase derived from the Latin caulis, meaning stem or cabbage. The Brassica group includes many familiar vegetables and “flowers” such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, rutabaga and turnip — some grown specifically for their ornamental leaves. Brassica as some may regard it as ‘gorgeous’ cabbage.
Brassica come in three basic colours — greens, creamy whites and violets. They have tough stems and leaves and they remain fresh as cut “flowers” for a solid week, making them a wonderful option for floral arranging and each bloom is sizable enough to make a hand bouquet – like the one below – we used a large purple brassica mixed with wild colored flowers, nosa, purple caspia with iron leaves. We peel the outer layers of leaves back, one at a time. Carefully working the same towards the many bulk in the inner petals. By doing so, it accentuates the already beautiful brassica to it majestically blooms. This give that unique and sophisticated look. It stir up the drama factor ten fold.
We created this arrangement for MediaCorp’s order held on 7 Dec at the National Museum as part of TV’s 50th year anniversary.
Come help us celebrate 10 years of service with a new branch at International Plaza #01-58.

Many people may avoid purchasing cut flowers for fear of them dying easily. However, here are 10 secrets on how to prolong the lives of cut flowers to make them worth every cent they were paid for.
1. Always make sure that there is fresh water for the flowers every day. Once the water turns murky, it shows that there have been bacteria growth in the water and it will shorten the lives of the flowers.
2. As much as it is important to supply flowers with clean water, the vase must also be clean. Before placing the flowers into the vase, wash the vase with warm water and soap to get rid of bacteria.
3. Sometimes leaves will grow at the lower areas of the stem and will be submerged in the water. Remove these leaves as they promote bacterial growth and thus are detrimental to the lives of flowers.
4. Diluting flower preservatives in the water will also be good in prolonging the lives of cut flowers. Flower preservatives contain bleach which helps to prevent bacteria growth and supplies water and food to the flowers for them to survive and bloom. Flower preservatives can be bought or made at home with some basic household items.
5. It is important to cut the stems of the flowers daily. This will help the flowers absorb water and nutrients efficiently. Avoid damaging the stems while cutting them by using a sharp knife. Cut diagonally for a larger surface area of the stem to be exposed. This also ensures that the stem does not rest flat on the bottom of the vase, thus steady absorption of minerals occur, allowing flowers to survive.
6. It is better to keep cut flowers in a cool place, away from strong sunlight. While sunlight is good for growing flowers, it will cause cut flowers to dry out faster and thus shorten their lives.
7. Do not place cut flowers near ripe fruits. These rip fruits contain chemicals that may cause the flowers to bloom prematurely and cause them to die earlier.
8. It is not advisable to expose the flowers to cigarette smoke as well. The smoke will cause a layer of fine particles to accumulate on the surface of the flower, clogging the stomata of the plants which then affects the respiration and transpiration of the plant. By not smoking around flowers, it will prolong the lifespan of the flowers.
9. Remember to spray the flowers with some water daily. This will help to keep the flowers dewy and fresh.
10. A little bit of love and care will go a long way in keeping your cut flowers alive. Sometimes people forget to change the water and this will lead to the plants dying fast. Always remember that flowers are living things as well, so shower them with care and they will repay you in the form of its exquisite beauty.
The Chinese Valentine’s Day is on the seventh day of the 7th month in the traditional Chinese lunar calendar, whose name is “七夕” (Qixi). The Chinese Valentine’s Day for 2013 is on 13th of August.
Chinese Valentine’s Day originated from a romantic fable about two lovers: the seventh daughter of the Goddess of Heaven and a simple cowherd. It is said that the cowherd from the mundane world and weaving goddess from heaven loved each other. But love between the goddess and human beings was forbidden. They were separated by the Milky Way according to the command of the Queen Mother of the West.
But the Queen Mother of the West also showed her mercy to the couple. They were permitted to meet once a year, and the cowherd and weaving goddess became the stars of Altair and Vega. They could meet on the seventh night of the seventh lunar month every year. The magpies were moved by their true love and the birds formed a bridge for the couple to meet every year.
Their beautiful tale is wildly known in China and the Qixi festival is passed down as a tradition from generation to generation. Every year on the Qixi Festival, many lovers would pray for their love and happiness. Now a days in China, lovers release hung ming lanterns, and make good wishes of faithful love between them. So why not celebrate Valentine’s day twice this year? Celebrate this day with your love one with Chinese Valentine Flowers today. Fresh flowers are still the most common and meaningful gift for Chinese Valentine’s Day. We hand crafted this special Chinese valentine bouquet for this special occasion.
Minion-mania has been sweeping Singapore, long queues of people at McDonald’s lining up to buy minion-themed toys with every meal. This craze is happening in Malaysia too.

They are now seen everywhere from the big screens to apps, to toys, to stickers, to cakes and even flowers.

This year we saw Valentine’s Day falling within the same week as the Chinese New Year. Given the strong family oriented celebration, coupled with the long holidays, many had taken the opportunity to travel overseas. The repercussion? We believe many people had given Valentine’s Day a miss for the more important and busy Chinese new year celebration. Hence, even with the wider variety of designs and prices, we saw lesser people buying flowers for their loved ones this year. Nevertheless, as with every year, we enjoyed ourselves during this season arranging orders for Valentine’s moments. Many of our florists though admitted that it is hard work but had equally enjoyed themselves working alongside many other fellow florists and friends.
