Are there in Brovary any local traditions as to flowers or their colors?
Yes! And it is extremely important to follow the local traditions in this regard. Receiver of your bouquet is going to be extremely sensitive about it.
The number of flowers
If you decide to send a bouquet of roses (by the way, it is the most popular flower for our customers), make sure to send the odd number of flowers! Odd number of flowers is sending for the holidays, birthdays, for expressing love or respect and so on. In other words, odd number of flowers is sending to a happy alive people.
Even number of flowers is sending as a mourning flowers, flowers for funeral in Brovary, it is a number for memorial events only. Never ever send to someone the even number of flowers as greeting or a gift! It will be accepted like you wish a death to that person!!!
This tradition is extremely strong not just in Brovary, but at all parts of Ukraine.
The color of flowers
Actually any color of flowers is ok for sending Red roses mean love, white roses symbolize purity and fidelity. It is customary to send bouquets of white flowers for a wedding. The only color that people in Brovary might consider as a bad sign would be yellow roses! Traditionally yellow flowers are considering as a hint for parting or saying "Good bye!". However this tradition is slowly recedes in a big and modern cities. Girls and women there are mostly open to the yellow color flowers now. However people in a small towns and villages still follow this point of view. This fact makes yellow roses being not as popular as roses of other colors and that's why they might be absent at some periods at our flower shop. That's why yellow roses should be ordering a week prior the delivery date so, that we are able to order its supply and availability.

Choose the New Year gift
New Year can be called as the most enjoyable, merry and loved holiday for Ukrainians. They get together and have a parties with lots of various food, champagne, music, dancing near the Christmas tree, jokes and lots of laugh. Such parties last the whole nights and sometimes until the morning of January 1st. That's why the day after the New Year night is always quite in Brovary: no people at the streets, no traffic - people sleep to noon and later and wake up only in the late afternoon.
Based on such a description, you can guess what kinds of gifts would suit the most for this holiday: delicious New Year basket, decorated accordingly to the event. All the basket content can be used right away at a New Year night. Definitely champagne!
If you are not sure that the receiver likes such a "practical" gift, our Brovary florists could create a very special New Year bouquet! Also we thought it would be a great idea to send decorative Christmas tree - house plant. However, just look at the New Year gifts page and make your choice!
Christmas gifts ideas
Remember, that Christmas in Ukraine comes a week after New Year. Actually traditional Christmas gifts are very similar to the New Year gifts. It can be Christmas bouquet or a beautiful specific Christmas flower arrangement that includes a sparkling bolls. And, of course, the food sets with a nice food that includes a few kinds of meet products, such as smoked meet, sausage, bacon, etc.
Easter traditional gifts in Brovary and around Ukraine
As we know, it is customary at the West to present a chocolate gifts for Easter. It's totally different traditions here in Ukraine. People go to Churches from the early morning of the Eater day to consecrate a baskets with some food. They also would expect a similar baskets from their guests. What should be enclosed there into such traditional Easter Baskets? Definitely there should be the following things:
- a few kinds of a Meet products (beef, pork)
- "Krashanki" - painted boiled eggs
- a bottle of a specific "church" Easter sweet red wine, normally "Kagor"
- the Easter cake
As additions you could enclose there any other nice food, sweets, fruits, etc.
It would be great to use a church candles as a decoration of such an Easter Baskets.
Is delivery of any bouquet or gift from Brovary flower shop guaranteed?
Yes, any item can be delivered. However it can be done if the order arrives at least 2-3-4 days prior delivery date.
Take into consideration, that we actually are a local flower shop and sell a fresh flower bouquets and arrangements. One day we thought, that it would be a great idea to please our customers by adding some lovely gifts for delivery. We did. Then we got more ideas and added more items. The list of items that can be delivered in Brovary. is really impressive now.
Needless to say, that getting orders for flowers and, say, a soft toy, or delicacies basket, or a set of chocolates or cosmetics, we have to search for those items around at the local supermarkets and shops. Sometimes we have to visit up to 10 shops unless we find and collect the right things.
Sometimes it happens so, that we can't find it at the Brovary shops. At that case we organize its mailing from the other Brovary.
By the way, it makes sense for flowers as well. The point is that flowers is a product, that can't wait to be bought for a long time. Flowers are supplying and selling at our floral shop permanently, so, availability and number of flowers that are available at the moment change constantly. It may happen that the ordered flowers are not available at the moment, but its supply could be provided during the next 2-3 days.
Such extra efforts and expenses we totally take on our behalf. All we ask our customers for is to give us enough time to fulfill their flower and gifts delivery orders.
If the order arrives "for today delivery", we have no time to collect all the necessary flowers and items from the other cities. At such case we'll have no other way, than to substitute some flowers or gifts with those, that are available at the moment.
