Oh my, a Monday dispatch is truly a lot different from a Thursday dispatch. The sheer variety and number of baskets and hampers being sent out if easily double of that of Thursday's! So I am suddenly stuck from only a few fruit baskets to choose from, to a LOT of fruit baskets to choose from.
Needless to say, the ones I picked today stood out from the rest.
The first is the Flowers for Her basket. It doesn't contain fruit but it does come with beautiful pampering items.
This one is leaving use themed with a Best Friend mug, ordered by Susan in Australia and heading off to her best friend, Mary's birthday in Maidstone. The gift message is very sweet and ends with 'Thank you for being my treasured friend always.' Awwww~ Do you have a best friend you would like to send a birthday hamper to?
Then we have a Floral and Fruit basket being dispatched as well.
I usually take take the flowering plant out of the decorative cellophane and gift bag, because it allowed me to take a better picture of the plants. However, on this occasion, I left the plant in both because of how elegant it looked. White flowers in cellophane, and in turn in a creamy white gift bag. It so posh and sophisticated looking! This gift basket is from a gentleman in China and would be delivered to a motoring company in Manchester to celebrate the retirement of one of their employees. We hope they enjoyed the gift!
Then along came these three goof looking creations!
They are our 5 Star Fruit Gift Baskets - but since there are 3 baskets, would that make them 15 Star Fruits? One (the upper left) would be winged off to London as a 30th Birthday gift from a recipient's mum and dad in New Zealand. Another is sent by a company in Rugby to their employee in Banbury to wish them a speedy recovery from what ails him. The last 5 Star Fruit basket is ordered by a Daisy's mummy in Bath as an encouragement basket for her daughter as she entire the last week of exams. Phew, I remember doing exams in fair weather. The hall tends to get quite sweltering. Nothing like juicy fruit to help you along. Good luck, Daisy!
