Saturday the Sunflower
Posted By Dave on Saturday 18th May 2013 10:20
We use Facebook in a variety of ways from showing off our newest bouquets and competitions, to pictures of our Baxter Bear on his adventures!
On some occasions we like to ask our fans fun questions and recently we asked "If Saturday was a flower what would it be?" We had plenty of suggested flowers, but here are the top 5;
So according to our lovely Facebook fans, if Saturday was a flower it would be a sunny Sunflower. Let's hope we see some more sunshine soon!
Why not pop over to our Facebook page and join in the fun!
International Mother's Day
Posted By Dave on Thursday 9th May 2013 8:59
Mother's Day is celebrated around the world at different times of the year. For instance we celebrate it on Mothering Sunday, which is the fourth Sunday in Lent.
However most, but not all, of the rest of the world celebrates Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May, in this case on the 12th of May.
Wherever you are from and whenever you celebrate it, Mother's Day is a day to honour the person you call Mum, Mom, Mother, Mutter, Maman, Okaasan, Madre...
Your Bunches Poem...
Posted By Dave on Friday 19th April 2013 12:04
As many of you will know our Facebook page is a great place to go for bouquet information, competitions, discounts and just for a bit for fun!
We recently asked our Facebook fans to help us create a limerick, a line at a time. Over the course of the day it turned into more of a poem but we are really pleased with the result. We would like to thank everyone who took part in the creation of the poem.
There is a warehouse full of flowers
With scents that last for many hours
with more colours than a rainbow
That pick you up when you're feeling low
So, why not brighten someone's day,
by heading over to Bunches.co.uk

We don't know about you, but here at Bunches HQ we're looking forward to the Easter weekend and all the goodness it brings!
First of all, we get to indulge ourselves in copious amounts of chocolate without feeling at all guilty! Secondly, the clocks go forward on Sunday 31st which means the British Summertime officially begins (although you wouldn't have thought it considering the crazy weather we've been having recently!) Last but by no means least, it's the perfect time to spend with family and friends, reminding each other how much you care and enjoying a well earned Easter break.
Why not take a peek at our colourful range of Easter bouquets and send some Easter cheer to someone special - a perfect way to brighten up your loved ones home during this wintry weather!
There's still time...

Happy Birthday Bunches!
Posted By Laura on Thursday 21st February 2013 10:22
Hi everyone! This week we celebrated our 24th birthday here at Bunches HQ!
Bunches started selling flowers in a local shopping centre under a 6m x 4m umbrella in 1989 and today we're a thriving family business that has delivered over 3 million bouquets.
We'd just like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years and trusted us to deliver your lovely floral gifts to your loved ones!
In true tradition, we had 3 tasty birthday cakes on Tuesday and of course they all went down an absolute treat!
Did you know, we share our birthday with the following; Benicio Del Toro, Jeff Daniels, Ray Winstone, Seal (the musician, obviously!) and Prince Andrew Duke of York. For another interesting fact, the UK Number 1 song on the day we were born was "Belfast Child" by Simple Minds.

The snow has been falling heavily here at Bunches HQ since last week. We have a beautiful thick dusting of the white stuff which makes our little corner of Nottinghamshire look like a winter wonderland!
Our surroundings look truly magical and everyone at HQ is excited, except when the time comes to drive out of the car park at the end of the day!
We would love to see your snowy pics, so why not post them onto the Bunches.co.uk Facebook wall so we can have a peek at them?
Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you all enjoyed the festivities and now looking forward to all that 2013 has to offer!
We've been busy here at Bunches HQ putting together a selection of bouquets perfect for celebrating the New Year or saying 'Thank you' to family and friends for a wonderful Christmas.
Happy New Year!
