Monday 4th July, that's Independence Day! Warm wishes to all our lovely customers in the USA and everyone else who is celebrating today.
It's not often my fruit & flowers blog is the first of the day, as these tend to be the last variety to be assembled if we are waiting on our fresh fruit delivery. However, today the fruit arrived early and so I was able to get the photographs I had selected early on for a change.
I love the name of the first gift basket I've chosen to feature, plus the fact it's a combination of healthy & naughty: Healthy Twist. This one was ordered from one friend to another, from London to Lachingdon, to pass on get well wishes and to say "Love you chick". The combination of fresh fruit, fruit juice, herbal tea, honey, chocolate cake and a 'get well soon' balloon is sure to brighten her day.
Our Birthday Fruit basket is up next and just look how wonderfully colourful it is. This one was ordered by a lady in Australia for her friend back in Wadebridge, UK. She wrote in her gift card message that she hopes she has a wonderful birthday and how could she not when this arrives on her doorstep tomorrow?
I do love a Create Your Own gift basket and today's dispatches didn't let me down. This creation looked fantastic as it had lots of rich, earthy tones due to the selection of products included. I've picked out a few items that are in there to mention, including the fresh fruit collections, airdried beef, smoked salmon, cheese, paté, antipasta, nuts, granola and organic lemonades. The gift basket was created by a family in Switzerland, for another family in Manchester. The message said they figured the family could use some good food to keep their strength up at this time and seeing as they couldn't be there, they were having this food basket delivered instead. Great idea eh!
