I was told this weekend is going to be fantastically nice weather, but looking out the window right now, I have to say I have my reservations. It looks so grey! Not even a peak of sunshine! Thank goodness I have some colourful baskets with flowers to help brighten my mood today.
We will start off with a Flowers & Treats basket. Ordered by Maria (Dublin, IE) and going to Briget (Louth, IE), this basket is ladylike, pretty and warm. The bright yellow flowers really does make it a very happy looking basket.
And then, as if arranged by the girls in the warehouse, I turn around and see the same kind of potted plant but this time wrapped with cellophane and ribbons before being set in a pink decorative gift bag to further protect it during transit.
This flowering plant is going with a basket completely customised and created by a customer. Marilyn and Phil (Harrow, UK) ordering this basket this basket in advance last week and had specified it to be delivered tomorrow to Lucy (Borehamwood, UK) because she is a "very Special Lady" and it's her "Special Birthday". Lucy is such a dear friend that Marilyn and Phil didn't just want to send one 'friend' mug, but two - one from the each of them?
It wouldn't be a Fruits and Flowers blog post without a fruit basket, right? Here I present you a Fruit & Muffins gift basket.
This one is thank you gift from Brad (Washington, US) to Myra (Dublin, IE) to thank her for the hospitality in letting him and another companion stay at her place whenever they visited. Oh yeah.... speaking of which, I had been a bad friend and haven't sent my friend a thank you gift for the same reason... whoops. Let's go online and see if I can order anything to send to her from her local area.
