New Home New Beginning for 24Hrs City Florist

24Hrs City Florist Relocation - 2022

It feels quite surreal to have moved out from a place we fondly regard it as our second home after 16 years. No. 161 lavender street has been a place where it all began, a place we spun off creative ideas and arrangements, a place we practiced our craft, our passion, with the people we feel most at home but more importantly a place we interacted and connected with our customers –   an entrusted privilege we never took for granted.

We spent our initial couple of years from another location at 125 lavender street which was a few door steps away from 161. This move on 14 Nov 2022 would be our second furthest move after 18 years of operations – a place where our flowers are stored, cared for, where our flower bouquets are created, arranged, wrapped and where all our flower delivery are made from to every corner of Singapore.

No. 161 have been our home away from home for most of florists at 24hrs City Florist. We all felt very comfortable building relationships from this little cocoon not just with our customers but within our co-workers.

A testament when many of our past florists who had left us years ago, still drop by our shop every now and then to say hi. We are simple glad and blessed to have an outlet such as this in lavender.

Romancing with Singlish

flower bouquet 24hrscityflorist

Sure anot? Yes sure…  In Singapore, Singlish is often used when people feel at ease speaking to one another.  Most people in Singapore would agree that Singlish plays an integral part in their daily communication. Hence it doesn’t come as a surprise, Singlish is responsible for many Singaporeans getting hitched.  A popular online blog in Singapore quoted Singlish as:  “It’s objectively one of the best and most romantic and lyrical languages in the whole wide world.”

Singapore is a melting pot of different races and cultures. Singlish first emerged when Singapore gained independence some half a century ago, and English was decided to be the common language for all its different races. Singlish came about out of the necessity to communicate with different cultures in Singapore.

Unlike other pidgin or creole English, Singlish has evolved from a confluence of very diverse languages. The language has grown from a predominantly mix of Malay, Hokkien (Chinese dialect) and English languages  to now, Tamil, Teochew, Cantonese and Mandarin and it continues to evolve.

Some say, Singlish is the most efficient language in the world. Singaporean have a way of condensing really long sentences into short ones that every Singaporean understands but with nuances that are difficult to explain to anyone else.

When that happens, sometimes there’s no harm in choosing a safe bet from a list of 12 most popular flower bouquets. We’re sure there’s good reason why these bouquets made it to the list.

Read on to find out which bouquets made the top 12 most popular flower bouquet list!

1. Rose Bouquet

Red Rose Bouquets

It’s no surprise that rose bouquets are at the top of the list. A symbol of romance and love, roses are often given as expressions of one’s endearing love for another. There’s something classic about a beautifully curated hand bouquet that’s full of blooming roses which is bound to make your loved one who’s receiving the bouquet smile. Today’s bouquet, roses have been crafted to make them more unique – in some occasions, roses are dyed with interesting colours, multi-layered colours, florescent pigmented dye/spray that make rose glows in the dark and spreading or partially peeling down the outer petals of roses for them to look more glorious, a method knows as ‘reflex’.

Meaningful Ways to Give Flowers

At some point in time in most romantic relationships, there will be a bouquet of flowers involved. Yet because it is such a mainstay in relationships, we also want to be careful to avoid it becoming viewed as an obligation. Buying flowers is a simple act that doesn’t take much to execute – anyone with spare cash can do it. However, to make your bouquet stand out from the rest, it isn’t more cash that you need, but a thoughtful mind and a bucketful of sincerity. Today we share our two cents worth on what could help you level up your bouquet and re-instill meaning into flower giving. To do so, we shall split the methods into – occasion, delivery, flowers, and associated gifts.

Occasion

Bouquet of Flowers

By far the best occasion to give is when there’s no occasion at all. Unexpected gifts are the most well-received because the receiver’s expectations are at zero, and with just a simple bouquet, the happiness counter can probably shoot through the roof. Whereas on special occasions, there’s probably already a baseline level of expectation about receiving a gift. Hence to receive flowers on a special occasion becomes a fulfilment of that expectation and not nearly as exciting as receiving a surprise bouquet. A surprise bouquet could be inferred in many ways, but the most common of which would be that you have been thinking of that person (regularly) and wanted to show that you care. With such sweet connotations, a surprise bouquet can melt even the hardiest of flower critics.

My First Bouquet of Flowers

There’s a scene in No Strings Attached which I often go back to whenever I’m in need of some rom-com goodness. In this bit, Emma, a headstrong doctor who disdains romance makes it very clear that she does not want flowers on her first date with Adam, a young chap who is head over heels in love with her. As instructed, Adam does not show up with flowers. Instead, the well-decked lad presents a carrot bouquet and cheekily says, “you said no flowers.” Emma chuckles and is undeniably impressed. Look close enough and you can even see her fierce exterior crack for a split second as she coyly breaks into a blush. A genuine and common reaction upon receiving a flower delivery or in this case a carrot delivery.

Graduation Bouquet

When graduation comes to mind, many would imagine themselves decked in stunning graduation mortar boards and gowns; striding onstage to receive their hard-won certificates. This is sometimes followed by the soft, resonant thrum of a cello, and peals of applause. While for some, this celebration simply marks the end of a chapter.

Regardless of our perceptions, most would agree that this event bears much significance. This is especially so, when one thrives in an academic-centric society like Singapore. We have to bear with its implications: the pressure to do well, the impending exams, the frequent burning of the midnight oil… and so much more. Also, for many, the grind never stops. Hence, it is no wonder why graduation is welcomed with open arms, as the grand finale of a long ordeal.

Mother’s Day in Singapore – Making it just a little more special

mothers day flowers
mother’s day flowers

As Mother’s Day approaches us once again this year, on the Second Sunday of May, do we ever stop to wonder: what is the ‘true’ meaning of celebrating Mother’s Day? How is it traditionally celebrated and how may we celebrate it in our own ways?

In the UK, the English celebrate Mothering Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent. Back in the 1700s, house servants were encouraged to return to their hometowns to spend time with their mothers— a custom that was inspired by an even earlier custom that involved people going back to the first church they had ever attended, or their “mothering” church. Today, still steeped in religion, many churches will give children daffodils for them to give to their mothers.

Meanwhile, in Ethiopia, daughters will prepare vegetables and cheese, while the sons prepare meat for the annual meal and celebration. This celebration is vibrant, and even includes singing, dancing, and story-telling!

Here in Singapore, the most popular method of spending Mother’s Day is to treat mum to a nice meal out, complete with delicious and decadent food in her favourite cuisine and often times gifts of flowers. For those who are not able to be with their mothers this year, there are always the florists who are able to send your message of love on your behalf. Mothers day Singapore delivery has become increasing popular especially during the pandemic, where large gatherings are not permitted.
