Can you guarantee
that the digital picture of recipient will be made ?
We can not guarantee
the digital picture in any location for the following reasons:
Will I still be charged for the picture, if it

a picture - we will issue you a store credit in the form of coupon, which can
be used for your next order with us.

not charge for the photo at the time of the order and will only bill you after
the picture was made. If the picture is not made, your order total will include
the cost of goods and delivery only.

picture of delivery at the time of my order, but the picture was not attached

have a digital camera and therefore take time to process the photos. It may take
up to 7-10 business days to develop film, print photos, send them to our regional
office and scan them. Please, accept our apologies for any delays with sending
you a picture.

I've noticed that you offer
the Composition of 11 roses. Why you are not offering a dozen roses, as I am used
to seeing in flower shops worldwide?
It's custom in Russia to send
odd number of flowers except for Funeral/Sympathy arrangements. Sympathy and Funeral
arrangements must be composed of even number of flowers. This rule is not very
strict when you are sending mixed arrangements but very important when you're
sending one-of-a-kind arrangement, a bouquet of roses, for example.
of flowers in Russia doesn't differ much from the one in Europe and America.
Send roses when you're in love, send something bright and multicolor to support
your friend when she is ill, send while lilies or carnations as Sympathy arrangement.
And do not hesitate to email us and we will be happy to help you to chose an arrangement
suitable for your needs.
I have been corresponding with lady
online and want to send her flowers for the first time. What would you recommend
me to send ?
We suggest to send something simple, yet elegant like
a bouquet of mixed seasonal flowers and attach small box of chocolates.
What are the most important days in Russian tradition when people send flowers
or gifts ?
Most popular flower holidays are Valentine's
Day (February 14th) and International Women
Day (March 8th). The biggest time to send / receive gifts is Christmas
