This month, I’m happy to announce our give away is for a fresh flower arrangement (valued $50). The best part – you get to pick it 🙂

I think this is a great idea as, I LOVE  fresh flowers. The colours. The smells. The beauty. Everything about flowers make me smile and I’m lucky enough to work with them every day! For most people though, we forget how special flowers are and the feeling they can evoke. From celebrating an anniversary or a birthday, to showing a friend you’re there for them, to honouring a loved one – flowers are a thoughtful gift for any occasion. But where is the thought you ask? I mean you’re JUST getting flowers!

Well, in my opinion the ‘thought’ is when you pick flowers for someone with care and with them truly in mind. I’ll give you an example. I recently had a customer giving flowers as a gift for mother’s day. Instead of assuming what type of flowers to give, I asked the customer questions such as, what’s your mother’s favourite… flower? …colour? or is she more classic or a colourful type? etc. By asking these questions, I was then able to put together the perfect arrangement for the customer and his mother LOVED the flowers. Although the customer didn’t know what to get, by sharing with me some information about his mom, I was able to help him show how thoughtful he was.

For this contest, to win I would like to see YOUR thoughtfulness!

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 ; )
