FLOWER FRIDAY FAQ
Frequently asked questions
What exactly is Flower Friday?
Well, we specialise in floral design and we create bunches of stunning fresh flowers, once week on a Friday - simple!
Why only Friday?
We do flowers on a Friday because we buy all our flowers in for pre-ordered bunches.
We carry very little excess stock thereby reducing waste.
We are a modern florist with a modern view on floristry and floral design so you won't find buckets and buckets of flowers at The Barn waiting to be sold - we buy what we need and that's it.
Our flowers arrive from our British or Dutch suppliers on a Thursday morning - allowing us time to get them beautifully conditioned and arranged, ready for collection or delivery on a Friday.
Fridays are a great day to have flowers - just in time to be enjoyed over the weekend.
So can I have flowers on a Thursday if you get them on a Thursday morning?
In short - yes!
We can have flowers ready for you on a Thursday afternoon.
Equally, you can collect on a Saturday morning if you're busy on a Friday - the flowers will stay fresh and cool in our Flower Room until then.
But if we called it Flower Thursday, Friday & Saturday it just wouldn't sound so good!
Can I get flowers if I haven't pre-ordered them?
Sometimes! Now that we have a home in The Barn, we do always order a few extra stems that we can prepare on a Friday or Saturday once all our orders have been allocated.
But if you know you want flowers, we suggest you pre-order them as we only buy a few extras and they do tend to get snapped up really quickly.
So what flowers will I actually get? Can I choose what I have?
If you pre-order early enough (by Tuesday or Wednesday), we can often accommodate specific flower or colour orders, providing the flowers are in season, as we will buy accordingly.
However, we pride ourselves on creating beautiful bunches of seasonal blooms in our Mon Amie signature style that is loose, natural and a little bit wild.
We have been creating Flower Friday bunches for over five years now and our customers come back again and again because they love our flower selection and style that's always a bit different from anything they'll find elsewhere.
What will I get for my money?
Our bunches start at £20 and we simply put together this value of stems to create a stunning bunch depending on what we have selected for that week.
Obviously the more you spend, the more flowers you will have.
How are the flowers wrapped?
We wrap our flowers in brown paper and tie them with string. It's contemporary and beautiful.
What's more it's environmentally sound as we don't use cellophane.
We don't do old-fashioned bubbles of water or anything too time-consuming to create - this simply means that all your money is spent on beautiful blooms rather than fancy packaging. We think you'll agree that it all makes sense.
Do you add card messages for gifts?
Yes - we add lovely brown parcel tags with any message you want to send if you are gifting them to others.
Can I have my flowers delivered?
