I like you on Facebook ( Dana Victoria Klippert)
I really like the FDT Brilliant Meadow Basket (C17-4145) :) I really like it for a birthday!


Thanks everyone for participating in our contest! Our October contest will come out by Wednesday this week.


Although this wasn’t a wedding I designed for – when I saw my daughter’s picture from the wedding she had attended out west, I knew I had to share them with you! These flowers were absolutely beautiful.

The florist to credit is Graham and Lane (based in Edmonton) and here are some pictures from the wedding. Aren’t they gorgeous?!

I’m a bit late on this contest as my daughter who helps me with this blog was out traveling for a bit. However, she’s back and we have a great contest for you.

One of the things my customers often ask me is provide a gift that is great for anyone. As some times they have someone who is picky about colours and types of flowers. Or sometimes they ask me for something that will last longer than the typical week or two. In these cases, I suggest a gift of planter basket is perfect!

This type of gift makes the perfect gift for a home or at the workplace. In the case of a planter basket, people always love adding some life to their office or home. And in the case of a gift basket – who can say no to some yummy food!

Details for this contest:

As mentioned in the previous post, I attended a beautiful bridal shower last weekend. In these pictures you can see the center pieces and some of the other decorations.

If interested in this specific arrangement, each arrangements retails for $50, however a shorter version is possible for $35. Additionally, we can always create floral arrangements to your preferences and budget.

For bulk orders, Shalimar Flower Shop offers a 10% discount on +10 arrangements and a 20% for +40 centerpieces.

The big day is arriving and it wouldn’t be complete without the perfect corsage (and/or boutonnière). What makes a nice one? Well it depends of course on a number of things:

The colour of your dress
Your dates tie colour
What type of dress you’re wearing
If you have any allergies (or your date)
… and what your personality is! (yep, well in my opinion this matters!)

What do I mean by personality? Well, flowers can often be a form of how you express yourself – from the elegant white and pink corsage shows your modesty and only a peak of colour to a tropical floral corsage that shows off your vibrant personality. But maybe this is just me 🙂

Either way, we can create the perfect corsage for you depending on your needs – even if you’re allergic!(we can create a silk flower corsage.)

Adrienne, now a married woman!

Our good friend Adrienne got married last night to her long term boyfriend (of 11 years!) at City Hall. I got the honour of making her bouquet – something simple but contemporary, with bright colours (very reflective of her personality).

My daughter attended the wedding and from looking at the pictures, it looks like it was a really nice and cute event. The couple looks fantastic. The nice thing I heard was that Adrienne loved the flowers so much that she going to get her florist in Croatia to create the same look (their more formal wedding will be Croatia in June). Too bad I couldn’t make it her wedding there in Croatia. Imagine how great that would be!

For pictures, we’ve posted some on facebook:

This is Ami, Ila and Nitin’s daughter. I’ve decided to create this blog for my parent’s so they can share the latest in terms of trends, promotions and with what they are up to at Shalimar Flower Shop. Many of their customer’s keep coming back because they’re impressed both with the work they do and for the people they are.

Of course I’m a bit biased, so please do go in for yourselves!

In the future, I’m going to co-write this blog with Ila, my mom and the real driver behind this business. If you meet her, you’ll see just how much she loves flowers. I mean, I remember we all took a trip to Vancouver a couple of years ago and she just could not stop spending time in the gardens, she just loved the flowers there. It’s really something to see.

Anyway, if you ever need flowers for a birthday to a wedding or to celebrate a new born – she’s your woman and I promise, she’ll do a fantastic job! If you’re reading this and are interested in getting some flowers, tell them Ami sent you from the blog, and they’ll give you $5 off your first order ; )
