Available as pink, yellow, white, green and red, they are a versatile floral gift that never fails to cheer up the lucky recipient.
Service rating : This is the second time I have ordered from here, and both times the total experience was absolutely faultless. I ordered a basket arrangement (Raspberry Ripple - Grandissimo) for my mother in Law who has just moved to a new house. They were ordered in the evening, and were delivered the following day. I would highly recommend Serenata Flowers to everyone, you wont be disappointed.
Product : The amount of flowers in this arrangement, far exceeded what I expected. There was a great variety, with Roses, Freesia, Carnations to name just a few. My Mother in Law could not stop saying how lovely they are, and she was ’thrilled to bits’ with them. An all round brilliant service, and definately one I shall be using in the future.
Service rating : Great site, good service and customer notifications. Delivered on time.
Product : Very hard to rate flowers that you never see....it’s hard to push the recipient for feedback and they are hardly likely to tell you they’re awful seeing as you just made the effort to send them! However, the recipient of this bouquet said the pink carnations and roses were lovely. No mention of the lilies which I would have thought would be strikingly obvious...so I’m rather concerned the bouquet was not what was in the picture - but I have no way of knowing. Good service though.
Amazing service very fast delivery, very easy web site to use to place an order. Loved all the emails I got that kept me up to date on the progress of my order. Would definitely buy from Serenata flowers again and would recommend them to friends and family. I like that there were a nice selection for all pockets and that the 9.99 range wasn't some stuffy old carnations and few bits of Gypsophila with way to much greenery , it was really nice to be able to buy a nice bunch of flowers that were different and fresh and of a modern style.
Service rating : I have used Serenata Flowers before so did not hesitate to use again. very good delivery service and a good variation of flowers to choose from.
Product : I ordered these for my sister so I did not see them, but was told that they were beautiful and that the combination of the Pink Alstomera and the Cream Carnations went together very well.
Think I already sent a review. I deducted a point for the late delivery (on the correct day but after 8:00 pm on the Saturday before Mothers Day.A leeeetle stressful!!!). I nearly added the point back because some of the flowers are still quite healthy 2 weeks later (mainly daisies and carnations). Lets call it a delayed 4.5, very satisfied and, as usual, a perfect bouquet
The bouquet I ordered was a selection of carnations which was sent to my niece over the Mother's Day weekend. She cried when she received them as they were really beautiful and had never received any flowers before.
She couldn't stop crying all day and had to show everybody who visited her gorgeous flowers.
Service rating : This was an offer which was very good value.
Product : I saw the flowers yesterday, eleven days after they were sent. The alstroemerias were just about over, but I cut the stems of the carnations and put them in fresh water and would expect them to last two or three more days - they must have been very fresh. Very pleased.
Carnations are the birth flower for those born in January and also come in different shades with each one having a slightly different meaning. If you want to make sure you are sending the right message to your lady or a friend, pick pink carnations to send to your mum on Mother's Day as they symbolise Mother's love, send light red carnations to someone you admire, dark red carnations are for someone you are deeply in love with, same as with red roses. If you're sending white carnations, you are expressing pure love or you can also send them to wish someone a good luck. Beware of sending striped carnations as they symbolise regret or refusal. Similar with yellow carnations, although cheerful in nature they actually symbolise disappointment and dejection. Relatively new on the market are also green carnations which are usually sent on St Patrick's day. Don't be discouraged if you prefer carnations in a particular colour, even though you don't like the meaning, we are sure the recipient will admire and appreciate the gesture in itself, no matter what's the meaning behind the carnations bouquet. If you're worried about sending the right message, you can always use carnations in a mixed bouquet and that way they won't give the sole meaning to your gesture.
Same flowers can have different meanings in different cultures. Carnations are known as Mother's Day flowers, since the founder of the Mother's Day celebrations decided to choose this flower in white colour as a celebration of motherhood and parental bonds. If you're sending carnations flowers in France, be careful because they actually mean bad luck. There is an interesting use of carnations in Korea – they are used to predict woman's future. They place three carnations into their hair, and wait which one of those placed dies first. If it's the bottom one, the woman will have extremely hard life. If the top one dies first, then she will suffer during the end of her life and lastly, if the middle flower dies, her bad luck will only last until the end of her youth.
