Every once in a while our customers and recipients agree to let us use the delivery photos for our site. We couldn’t be more than thrilled when this happens! It’s one thing to see our studio photos, it’s quite another to see a recipient when they get their presents live! Now, we know, the quality of the photo above isn’t the best. You have to keep in mind our couriers are taking these photos live with the camera they have on hand, and yes sometimes it is a cellphone camera. Still, we think this photo says more than we could ever about how important it is to send that special someone a bouquet every once in a while.
This picture features a nice stuffed bear and a stunning bouquet to Melitopol, Ukraine of 21 roses.
Why an odd number of roses?
In many parts of the world sending an even number of flowers is actually an insult. While in the US a dozen roses would be lovely, people in the Ukraine, CIS, and Russia are counting to make sure the number is odd. 21 flowers (not 12, or 24) is culturally much better and leaves the recipient smiling.

A Stuffed Bear For An Adult? Really?

Including a cuddly companion with your bouquet order is a sure way of making sure they remember your gift for years to come. But if you’re unsure if it sends the right message you can always choose to pair your flowers with jewelry or a bottle of perfume instead.
