The service received has been inconsistent but it has been good overall. The first time I received flowers they were absolutely beautiful and the lilies flowered and lasted over two weeks. The second bunch I ordered as a gift for my mum's birthday, they came with roses browning at the edges, and three lilies which had had their pollen stems cut off! I did get in touch with customer services and they assured me that the bouquets go through 5 quality checks (which I found very surprising, especially considering no-one noticed the cut stems on all three lilies in the bunch) but they were very understanding as we had a family emergency which meant my mum wasn't around to 'enjoy' the bunch anyway, so they kindly rearranged delivery. This bunch arrived on time and with lots of lilies, some unopened which was lovely but there was a lot of greenery and not much by way of flowers and some fresia looked old and again some roses were browning, so the bunch did not last longer than a week, sadly.
First time using Serenata to send to Canada from UK, flowers arrived next day as I had requested, recipient said 'perfect timing' so obviously hadn't arrived very early or very late, she found it unusual to arrive in a box but said they were displayed beautifully within the box so great when first opening, when displaying needed two vases as there were so many flowers so she was very pleased. She mentioned there were lilies which was not in my choice so will be interesting to see the photos being sent by recipient. Overall though as usual very pleased with the service. Would have liked a notification that she received them and when but perhaps as this was Canada not possible.
I could not fault the quality of the service or the goods provided. I have had frustrating experiences with other companies then my daughter recommended Serenata. I won't be using anyone else from now on! The flowers were to congratulate a friend on her recent marriage. She rang to say how delighted she was with the bouquet. I had upgraded to a medium size and she said the blooms filled two large vases. She also said that they lasted a really long time and that the lilies perfumed the whole house. I was also pleased that there was no delivery charge!
I had received some flowers from serenata for my birthday a few weeks before and they were beautiful and lasted ages. So I thought I would order some as a surprise for my sisters 80th birthday. They were absolutely gorgeous and great value at Â£30. When I went to see her, you could smell the freesia's as soon as you went in the house. Although the roses and freesia have died off, she still has the lilies which smell so sweet. Thank you.
Very good that Serenata were able to deliver within hours on Christmas Eve. The bunch looked attractive when delivered, but some of the flowers did not last well. I was surprised that some of the chrysanthemums were dead at the end of a week, when this flower normally lasts well. The lilies were good after ten days.
The recipient of the flowers called with nothing but praise for the beautiful blooms they had received. A perfect combination of glorious lilies and pretty roses against a backdrop of luscious leaves; wonderful hues of orange and green.
had poorly arranged flowers (roses fully opened but lilies never opened) delivered perfectly and on time, i claimed refund, and they did with no questions asked, happy with the customer service but be carefull when ordering different flowers together
Pink Lilies (Lillium) are herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs, with most species native to the temperatures of northern hemisphere, though their range extends into the northern subtropics. Many plants use "lily" as their description, when in reality they are not "true" lilies. Lilies produce large distinct flowers that come in shades of white, yellow, orange, pink, red and purple (resembling almost black). The markings on the flower can be in form of spots or strokes. Pink lilies bloom in spring or late summer. The taxomony of lilies includes seven types - Martagon, Pseudolirium, Liriotypus, Archelirion, Sinomartagon, Leucolirion, Daurolirion.
We have a wide range of either mixed bouquets feauturing pink lilies, including our bestselling Strawberry Sundae bouquet, Madonna, Someday Dreamer or use can choose bouquets crafter only from lilies like our Calliope bouquet. All of our pink lily bouquets come with free standard delivery available also at weekends.
All of our pink lilies are delivered in bud form, for two reasons. They are protecting the flower during the delivery process and secondly, the new owner of the bouquet can enjoy their beauty for a lot longer than when they are delivered opened. As all of our bouquets, lilies come in sturdy cardboard box with their own supply of plant food and water. We also enclose instructions so that the recipient knows how to take care of them properly to make them last longer.
Lilies, just like other fresh cut flowers, need a little care before you can enjoy them. When your pink lilies are delivered, trim off excessive leaves and foliage, cut their stems around 3cm at a 45-degree angle and place them in a cleaned vase with fresh water. Add the supplied plant food and place them in a light room, away from draft or too warm places in the house. Keep them out of reach for cats as they can cause serious harm.
Pink lilies have various meanings and symbolism, but they are most commonly used as a symbol of motherhood and pink lily bouquets are therefore often given to mums. This meaning could be derived from the mythology which tells a story of Hera, a Greek Godess whose breast milk dropped to the Earth and lily started growing in that spot. Another meaning of lilies associates them with prosperity and hope. Lilies of this colour therefore make a wonderful gift for a new mum, to give someone as a congratulations gift on new job, or moving into a new home. They are also very popular as a flower for Mother's Day and a great alternative for usually more expensive roses.
Lilies are popular addition to mixed bouquet due to their impressive size and irresistible fragrance. Most commonly used in bouquets for new mums, lilies also make beautiful wedding flowers in combination with roses.
