A quick update on the quality of flowers, and The Floral Studio are still finding, with the remaining heat and humidity, that some of the cheaper rose varieties are simply not going the distance. At the moment customers should expect anticipate flowers to be in good condition 10 days after purchase, provided the water is changed regularly and flowers snipped. Recently they had a customer report that her highly scented lilies lasted for 20 days.
After their commentary about the price and design of funeral flowers, they had a lot of feedback saying that if you seek individuality and a reflection of a person’s true personality then speak to your florist. Basically, you receive twice the value and the designs are individual and creative – not the cookie cutter designs that some provide. Funeral flowers are a very personal choice and that is where the talents and skills of florists can assist, so for more information on delivering flowers Auckland, Auckland florists and flower shops please go to http://www.floralstudio.co.nz .
