Service rating : I wanted to send some nice flowers to my sister - something nice, a bit different, and no lilies (she has a cat - and lilies are toxic to cats, especially the pollen). I’ve used Serenata before, so I knew the service would be efficient and the flowers would be up to scratch. I had a quick look through their website - the filters make it easy to find the flowers you want to send for the price you want to pay. I picked some really funky blue orchids (Blue Dendrobium). Selecting and paying is easy with no hidden charges (and next day delivery is included in the price of the flowers).
Once I’d placed the order, I received sufficient emails to update me on its progress. A couple of hours after they’d been delivered, my sister sent me an email to say thanks with a photo of the flowers she’d received - they looked really great, as good or better than the website photo.
I’ve used one or two other internet flower sellers in the past, and there are some really bad ones out there who don’t know their iris from their elbow!
Serenata are in a different league - they’re really good.
Product : Really nice flowers - thanks.
Service rating : The standard option for ordering flowers was that they came wrapped, and you have to pay extra to have them arranged in a vase. The recipient has plenty of vases so I chose just to have them wrapped. I thought they would come ready to put into a vase and put on display. Unfortunately they had to be pulled apart and cut individually which was a lot of work when the flowers were a gift.
Product : They were very fragile flowers and two of the five stems were broken when they arrived. The flowers were dyed blue and the dye transferred to our hands while handling the flowers. Very disappointed at the final product, as the flowers were not nearly as majestic as the pictures appeared.
Service rating : Your system is tried and tested and performs well. That is why I continue to use it. It is complete, well presented, organised and thoughtful.
Product : Bearing in mind that I had pink dendrobium sent at the same from another company I have had a comparison. This was not intended however in the circumstances proved most useful. The serenata blue was not good. It was tired and clearly will not last for very long. There were two packs sent with the smaller one being of poor quality. The bigger bunch was only average and not stunning as expected. I felt let down as previous standards of product quality have been high.
Service rating : Booked flowers for Mothers Day, last minute booking but didn’t seem to be a problem for Serenata Flowers, very impressed. Marked down to good as the flowers chosen and the flowers my mother received differed considerably.
Product : Choose the scented blue posy, but she received a multi coloured lot. I’m not a big fan of mixing too many colours and prefer the more classic look so was a little disappointed but she was very happy to receive flowers which was after all the point!
Service rating : I have ordered three bouquets as gifts over the past year and have been very happy with the service. The recipients have commented on how beautiful the flowers were. I love the variety of bouquets available, especially the more unusual ones and I’ve no doubt I will order more in the future!!
Product : I did not see this bouquet as it was a gift for my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. However, she phoned me imediately on receiving it to say how beautiful the flowers were. Blue is her favourite colour so this particular bouquet suited her perfectly. Thank you.
firstly i am sorry for being so late i ordered the blu dendrobium for my sister in weston super mare...choosing blue because it is my favourite colour....my sister waxed lyrical about them and the way they were carefully packaged...even my brother in law came on the telephone to say how beautiful they were sister has your details now for when she needs to send flowers...thankyou will use your service again......10/10
Service rating : I did not know that my daughter and grand-daughter was going out early and I felt sad that they missed the delivery. Not your fault.
Product : When my daughter sent me flowers from you, I was very pleased with them and seemed alot, espically the blue orchids. My daughter, seemed alittle dissappointed in the amount received. She said it was not many. I cannot say, as I only ordered them. Apart from that, she was happy for Florrie. Many thanks.
Is there a blue rose? Roses don't naturally grow in blue colour because they lack the necessary pigment called delphinidin which would enable them to grow blue petals. Even after years of testing and growing various hybrids of roses, a true blue roses still doesn't occur naturally, there simply isn't a simple gene that would make it possible to grow blue roses. So if you're wondering if you can grow a blue rose in your garden, the answer is simply no. The pigment necessary to produce the blue tint on petals – Delphinidin – was successfully used in tests with pansies which were grown in blue colour after the gene that leads to generation of this pigment was successfully implanted. Unfortunately, there is no similar option with roses, where the pigment doesn't occur naturally. Blue roses are created by dyeing either cream or white roses with a tint. Where can you by a blue rose? Many florists and online florists will give you the option to buy these roses, but beware that the tint may shorten the life of the roses. That's the reason why we at SerenataFlowers.com don't offer blue roses as we believe in only offering the nature's finest – roses in their natural colours.
The meaning of blue roses derives from their colour – blue has always been associated with royalty and so blue roses symbolise majesty and splendor. Because of their rare appearance and the fact that they don't naturally occur in nature, some cultures believe that the recipient of a blue rose will have its wishes granted. The meaning stems from a nature of blue roses as something unachievable and rare, and so by presenting someone with a blue rose you are giving them a wish fulfilled.
What occasion are blue flowers suitable for? Of course for new baby celebrations – they can be sent to the hospital to celebrate the birth of a baby boy or brought to a baby shower if you know the mum is expecting a baby boy. Blue flowers are also a great alternative to give to men – opt for masculine blooms in blue hues, and get them delivered straight to the door. One of our most popular blue bouquets is our Ocean Whisper arrangement with white gerbera daisies, blue delphinium and sprinkles of purple Limonium flowers. If you want a bouquet with softer blue hues, you might like our Summer Skies bouquet with white roses, blue delphinium and purple freesia. All of our blue flower bouquets are available for free next day delivery anywhere in the UK. Simply place your order online at SerenataFlowers.com by 10.00 pm weekdays for free next day delivery.
