Had enough of those roses that wilt in 20 seconds? We thought so. Which is why One Roze is switching things up with interesting floral arrangements that focus on packaging too. Bye bye, tacky plastic wrapping paper. Sometimes in Parisian hat boxes or patterned gift boxes, you could stick to the inimitable rose but instead of a passe red, think baby pink, royal blue or even a beautiful lilac.
They even have a collection with apparently the world’s longest lasting rose, which lasts over a year. These flowers are treated in an environmentally friendly process to enhance their life, and it’s perfect for surprising bae with. At least you won’t have to buy flowers every week for a while!
If roses are too mainstream for you, there’s always the option of vibrant carnations, orchids that are brought in from Holland (especially the butterfly orchid), tulips, peonies, hydrangeas and the beautiful eustomas (only found in Mexico, the Caribbean and some parts of South America). Once you pick the flowers, you can customise the arrangement to fit into Parisian-style hat boxes, glass vases, floral pattern bucket-like tins and even a simple posy. You can even throw in a handwritten note (though we suggest you write that yourself if you live in the same city).
Going that distance means everything sometimes, so for those of you who really want to impress, check out their section on tailor-made hampers. You can put in flowers, chocolates, cakes, macaroons, scented candles, and other artisanal products. They even customise hampers for festivals like Diwali, Christmas and Easter, or for baby showers and weddings. They even have a decor division which specialises in designing unique floral concepts for wedding functions, parties and office events.
