With one blogger down, we had recently decided to change up the dispatch format to just one basket/hamper per dispatch blog rather than three. Okie-dokie, on the plus side, it meant taking photographs of the products are a LOT faster now that we're just dealing with 3 baskets instead of 9, also you won't feel guilty about holding up a team of warehouse staff from their packing duties simply because you want to position multiple baskets juuuuuuuust right for a snap.
On the minus side, I am suddenly filled with this sense of responsibility and obligation to um.... write more about each basket? Oh dear, you know what that means, right? That meant you would all have to endure even more of my rambling, waffling and babbling!
I swear I shall try to be good and not go on about the same thing too much.
Anyways, onto the first basket.
This is a gorgeous custom fruit basket put together at the request of Adrian, in Dublin, Ireland By the looks of things, he had requested for one of our existing baskets and had added additional items to it? I'm just trying to decipher which basket it is. It looks a little like a Flowers to Say - Birthday basket, but with.... um.... a different cake! Yes, That's one aspect. The other is... hum.... it's rather like one of those Spot the Difference games, isn't it? Oh wait! The candles! Of course!
Apparently the recipient prefers chocolate cake over the existing tea cake that's in the basket, hence the cake swap. And he wanted to add some birthday candles on it to further theme the basket. I am also very struck by the super cute Happy Birthday balloon. It's suitably feminine and totally adorable.
The flowering plant of today are begonias, and with Chinese New Year just passed not too long ago, feng shui is still on some people's minds. Apparently Begonias, from a feng shui point of view, are great plants for encouraging harmony in communication within a home or an office. Huh, interesting, I haven't though of the plants we have in our range from a feng shui point of view before.
