As the ice thaws and the sun peeks out from the clouds, the peony flowers come out to play! Peonies, sometimes mistaken for garden roses, is a flowering plant native to both the East and the West – namely Asia, Europe, and the western parts of North America. There are over 30 species of peonies. Peonies are perennial flowers that only bloom at certain times of the year, namely in spring and summer. They are known for their large, lush, billowy, overlapping petals, and can come in a variety of colors – pink, red, cream, and the more uncommon yellow. The scent of the peony flower, which is regarded for its soft, feminine, fresh and sparkling qualities, is also a popular fragrance component.
Can you grow peonies in Singapore?
The short answer is no. Peonies flourish best in temperate climates, as opposed to our tropical one. They require long periods of dormancy each cycle; whereby the plant is not dead but does not bloom as it is in a resting state to conserve energy. In order for this to happen, very cold temperatures are required, to the point whereby the ground freezes. So unless the peony plant is placed in a very controlled environment with optimal growing conditions, it is unable to bloom in Singapore. Have no fear though, many florists on our sunny island still carry and deliver various types of peonies seasonally!
This elegant peony flower bouquet, consisting of dark pink and cream blooms, are available for order at 24hrCityFlorist. Flower delivery services available.
The death of a loved one is one of life’s most difficult experiences. When someone has lost a loved one, there is nothing in the world that can make the pain go away. No words can adequately convey feelings of sympathy and sorrow. Grief can be an isolating emotion as the bereaved has to move into a world where his or her loved one is no longer alive. However, letting them know that you love and care about them through your presence and words of support can help to ease the pain, even if it’s just a little. Funerals are always difficult and often viewed as an uncomfortable social situation. Fortunately, attending funerals is not generally something that most of us are well acquainted with. If in doubt about attending, do try to make it a point to attend the funeral or other memorial services if possible.
Your willingness to go out of your way to attend and your words of comfort and peace are wonderful and heartfelt ways to let the bereaved know they are in your thoughts and prayers. However, in extenuating circumstances that does not allow you to attend personally, sending condolence flowers and wreaths are a beautiful way to show you care. Sending flowers to someone in their hour of grief is a caring act and the recipient will take comfort in this thoughtful gesture. When a flower delivery or condolence flowers is delivered to the wake or funeral home, they’ll know that you are thinking about them and their loss. Flowers serve as a beacon of hope and they are a perfect replica of human life. They are a symbol of the human life cycle from birth to death and they remind us of the haunting fragility of life and its temporal beauty.

1. When can I gift someone flowers?
Flowers are one of the most ‘universal’ gift. Flowers can be presented as a gift in a variety of occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, funerals, graduations, and many more. While flowers generally can be given on numerous occasions, it makes good sense to also consider the personality of the recipient as well. Flowers or flower bouquets are also often used to convey many different messages and emotions such as “I’m sorry”, “Will you marry me”, “Get well soon”, just to name a few. Whatever the reason, flowers are one of the most readily accepted gift throughout the ages and they will remain so for many years to come.
The Muslim holy month is upon us once
again. Hari Raya Puasa or Hari Raya Aidilfitri marks the end of the Islamic
holy month of Ramadan – a period of deep spiritual reflection and fasting that
takes place every year. During the entire month of Ramadan, which occurs on the
ninth month of the Islamic calendar, able-bodied Muslims are obligated to
abstain from eating any food, drinking any liquids, smoking cigarettes, immoral
acts and anger. Doing any of those things invalidates your fast day, and you
would have to start over the next day. Muslims also view this time to be one of
spiritual discipline, where one is expected to focus more on charity, patience
and being grateful for what God has bestowed upon them.
But before you draw conclusions that the entire month of Ramadan and the celebrations that follow are serious and boring, it’s really anything but! It’s a time of celebration and joy meant to be spent with loved ones. Hari Raya is a religious holiday where everyone comes together for big meals with family and friends; loved ones may also greet each other with bountiful and specially crafted Raya hampers and gifts or flower delivery. Do be mindful not to confuse between Hari Raya Puasa and Hari Raya Haji – they’re different days of celebration! Hari Raya Haji is celebrated at the end of the Hajj (or prigrimage), 70 days after Ramadan. Hari Raya Puasa celebrations typically last up to 30 days, whereas Hari Raya Haji celebrations last up to 4 days. In Singapore, Hari Raya Puasa tends to be celebrated on a bigger scale than Hari Raya Haji. Think the annual Hari Raya Bazaar at Geylang Serai and the Hari Raya Light-Up!
These flowers are romantically dubbed “everlasting flowers” due to its tendency to last infinitely longer than fresh flowers. What are referring to? Yup, you guessed it; dried flowers are certainly making a strong comeback in 2019! While beautiful fresh blooms have many virtues, among these is its ability to fill a room with a heavenly aroma. The problem, however, is that they have a relatively short life span. Dried flowers bouquet provide an alternative to fresh flowers bouquet since they last longer and are more cost effective. They also capture nature’s beauty at its peak. Drying flowers also gives you the opportunity to save flowers that have sentimental value.
The act of drying flowers dates back to ancient times. Pressing flowers was a quintessential Victorian pastime especially for women from the middle and upper class. Flowers were often slipped between pages of a book as a remembrance of a particular person or to preserve the memory of a special event.
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.

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

The Chinese Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year is without a doubt one of the most important celebrations in Singapore. This is in part due to the large Chinese population residing here in Singapore.
This Chinese new year is the year of the Pig. And many Chinese families are already sprucing up their homes by adding fresh flowers and plants. Why? Because flower blossoms are believed to bring fortune and prosperity, according to the Chinese saying 花開富貴 (“blossom flowers bring wealth”). That is why flowery plants available from your local florists store – such as the pussy willow, anthoriums, cymbidiums, marigold, chrysanthemums, peonies and the tangerine tree make up the most popular favourites.
Take a walk down any street in Singapore during this festive new year and you’ll be treated to the non-stop chant of cymbals and the barrage of fireworks booming.

According to Wikipedia, millennials (also known as Gen Y), are the generational demographic cohort following Gen X and preceding Gen Z. It’s no secret that millennials have very different preferences in terms of lifestyle and purchasing habits, so an interesting question would be whether they still like receiving a flower delivery and what bouquets do they really want?
Do they still visit florists for bouquet delivery Singapore? We get to the root of the question by asking millennials themselves through the platform most commonly associated with them – social media (Instagram, facebook, twitter). Some of the answers from the total sample pool of 30 Singaporean millennials might shock you.
To start off, one might want to clarify what the definition of the term “millennial is”. Simply put, there’s no fixed age to define who can be termed a “Millennial” but most agree that the term applies to individuals who reached adulthood around the turn of the 21st century. Those aged 35 and below can be considered millennials as well, making it a rather broad range. When one thinks of millennials, some characteristic traits attached to them that comes to mind would be more open-minded, self-expressive, upbeat and also more selfish. This could stem from their upbringing in a more liberal and open society as compared to the past but also mainly due to the societal habits and technological developments that have shaped their perceptions growing up.
It is that time of the year again where love is in the air, flowers and roses bloom to the tune of love songs and ballads.

Christmas in the western countries brings up images of snow, gifts, Christmas trees, and all the clichés you’ve come to expect.

If you’re new to Singapore though, you may be wondering how to spend your Christmas. Or perhaps you’re a Singaporean wanting some Christmas ideas. Check out our ideas to find the best places and activities for a festive Christmas and a joyful holiday in Singapore.
1. Spending time with family
It isn’t all about gifts and snowball fights. In Singapore, there are tons of ways to spend a little time with your family, even if you’re doing something as simple as putting up a Christmas tree. You can buy natural fresh real Christmas trees in various sizes from local florists, supermarket Gold storage or Ikea in Singapore. Yes they come with that lovely Christmas-tree smell that adds a little more Christmassy into the home. Some florists or other companies may provide Christmas tree decorating services, helping you set them up so you can enjoy the tree without spending time putting it together.
When you learn that a friend or relative has lost a loved one, your first reaction is to want to offer and extend your condolences. In Singapore, there are a few ways to conveying condolence messages but most commonly, people send their condolences by giving condolence wreath or condolence flowers.
Flowers for condolences are not meant to take away the pain from a grieving family. However, this gesture is a good way to let other family members and friends know that they are not alone in their grief; that they have got someone by their side. It is an honorable gesture, a gesture of comfort and kindness, and one of respect. The act of sending condolence flower along with a thoughtful message shows those grieving how the life of the deceased touched the life of the one sending the flowers.
Flowers have always been a way to express all kinds of sentiments, be it romantic, platonic or even a form of condolence. There is a bouquet suited for every occasion – which makes flowers such versatile gifts. On top of that, new innovative bouquet arrangements are always emerging, making sure that flowers never become a cliché.
It is a widely-known fact that different flowers represent distinct emotions. When put together as a flower bouquet, they can send across a plethora of messages. The classic red rose is a prime example of this. Typically when presented in a bunch, they symbolise a timeless love. However, they can portray other images when paired with other flowers. When arranged in a bouquet with fresh springtime tulips, the image of a light, youthful romance is painted.
The characteristics of a flower bouquet are wrapping style, choice or type of flowers and foliage, as well as miscellaneous items that can be added to spruce up an individual bouquet.
We anonymously surveying 50 Singaporean ladies. 27 of them were between the ages of 18-24, 13 of them were between the ages of 25-34 and 10 of them were between the ages of 35-44. After analysing the results of the survey, we compiled a list of five bouquets that are known to impress.
Finding love can be difficult for many of us, and making that love last can prove to be just as hard. Regardless of your age or the status of your relationship, whether you have been dating for a short time, a long time, are engaged, or already married, every relationship encounters difficult times or can use some spicing up every now and again.
Many men often feel that women are difficult to understand or that there isn’t anything they can do to save a relationship. But there are actually many things a man can do. There are many ways that you can improve your love life and many things you can do to make this happen.
Flowers are beautiful subjects to photograph. The question is, can our smartphones do it justice? In this time and age, literally everyone has a mobile or smartphone in their pocket and that’s great because it means that we can capture anything on-the-go. Though some still prefer using the professional DSLRs or compact cameras to take shots but if you don’t have a DSLR or compact camera with you, it is not going to do you any good. As the saying goes “The best camera is the one with you”. The big DSLRs are great but if it’s too big to fit into your bag or purse, you probably not going to carry with you. And if it is sitting in your house, you can’t take any pictures with it. That’s why it comes as no surprise, most of us whip out our mobiles or smartphones when we need to take a picture.
So, if you’re someone who loves taking shots of flowers on your phone, read on to get 16 tips for creative flower mobile photography.
