Greeting Cards

Handmade designs, hand written calligraphy, folding cards – we have them all.

(In all seriousness: whatever ingenuity you possess, it comes from the child in you. Keep it alive and happy). We also print on a simple grey card your personal messages for the bouquets and arrangements of your choice. And that is the point, isn’t it? The message has to be personal and unique.

Anniversaries

We all know what it means to sit in the dog-house. Forgetting your anniversary – and I am looking at you, Sir – is a surefire way to share the bunk with Lassie in her shack. I hope the dog likes you.
