Who doesn’t love flowers?
When you think of flower-giving, you probably tend to think of it as a purely romantic kind of gesture – a man coming home, a flower bouquet tucked under one arm, and presenting the gift to a delighted and utterly besotted wife. But flowers can have many different meanings and may be used to convey all sorts of feelings, romance being just one of them.
For example, the act of giving flowers has been shown to bring out positive moods, happy feelings, and genuine smiles in the people who receive them – even if they were given by a complete stranger! Beautiful and smile-inducing, flowers are powerful mood-lifters that often find their way as gifts into all sorts of happy occasions – such as (but hardly limited to) weddings, baby showers, graduations, and of course, birthdays.
So if you’re stumped on the perfect birthday gift to give your friends, family, or significant other (obviously), why not surprise them with a lovely bouquet of blooming flowers?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
A flower boutique or flower shop is a shop that sells flowers and ornamental plants, and it is also the right place where customers can purchase fresh flowers and those ornamental plants. Whether intended as a personalized gift, anniversary gift, birthday gift, or flowers for the funeral, a flower boutique is a solution to all of this.
There are various factors, including the fact that flowers can travel across continents from field to florist and are delicate, need proper care, are perishable, challenging to maintain, and frequently imported. Therefore, when Mother’s Day on May 12—which is observed in approximately 100 countries approaches, you might start to complain about the price of a bouquet.
Roses should last up to 1 week and it is possible that roses can stay live longer than that if they are stored in a cool location and treated with flower care according to the florist’s instructions, thus you can see the differences in life span between roses that are taken care with the correct guide and the roses that are not properly taken care of. However, if you do not take extra care of them, you can see that your roses are dying after 1 day.
Florists store their flowers in a storage area that is kept at 2 – 7 degrees Celsius. Refrigerated trucks that are used for the delivery and storage of the flowers are also kept at the same temperature. Besides that, they also follow the tips that are mentioned in FAQ number 8.
Here are some tips for you if you would like a florist at a flower boutique to arrange flowers: Please choose the right and perfect flowers, then select the main colours of the flowers- this is done with 2-3 flowers of the same hue-. Then, choose 2-3 flowers with contrasting colours to give it a pop effect.
Florists at the flower boutiques may make donations of flowers to local hospitals, non-profit organizations, or nursing homes. It is not rare for them to keep those unsold flowers as stocks for tomorrow. Besides that, florists may also give some of them away to their regular customers in order to strengthen their business relationships even further. Sometimes the unsold flowers will be the learning material for interns at the flower boutiques.
Definitely, yes! Nowadays, flower boutiques offer delivery services for their customers. For example, BloomThis does same-day deliveries within Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Penang, and Johor Bahru from Monday to Sunday for orders that are made by 4 p.m.
Meanwhile, Flower Chimp offers to deliver on the same day for orders made by 5 p.m. within Klang Valley. This same-day delivery is available from Monday to Saturday. They also deliver orders on Sundays that are made by 2:30 p.m. For the areas outside of Klang Valley, same-day delivery is available from Monday to Saturday for orders that are made by 2:30 p.m. If you would like Flower Chimp to deliver flowers on Sunday, please make orders by 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

· Always and always cut the stems before placing flowers in water
