Important INFO regarding Flower & Gift delivery at Opishnya.
Please, read this paragraph.
Opishnya is a small town and the range of goods there cannot be compared with the capabilities of Kiev, Odessa, or Kharkov, etc.
Nevertheless, we really would like very much the recipients in Opishnya to not be deprived in any way in comparison with residents of a large cities. We will do anything we can to provide the delivery of any flowers and any gifts from our catalog. However, it is possible at the only one case: If the order is placed and paid in advance, at least 3-4 days prior the delivery date.
In this case, we have enough time to prepare all the flowers and gifts ordered.
If your order is supposed to be fulfilled at the same day, that it arrived - Alas! At such case we could collect the ordered items from the those, that are available in Opishnya stores at the moment. Needless to say, that partial substitutions are inevitable: some flowers in a bouquet or arrangement, gifts, or their components, etc.
We should assure our customers however, that our florists do their best for keeping "the spirit", or "general impression" same as a photo on the site creates. We keep the color, size and class of the flowers primarily. If the new flowers are less expensive, then we take just more number - so that the cost of the composition remains unchanged.
The same can be said about gifts. For example, you ordered a set of fish delicacies, but the courier could not find, say, "Cold smoked Oil fish" in the Opishnya stores. The courier then will buy another one of the same (or higher) class fish.
One more item that might be unavailable at our town is Macarons. We offer it as a part of some arrangements as well as a separate gift. This delicacy is quite rare here and we could either substitute it with Raffaello candies or to move delivery 2-3 days ahead. At this case we could mail macarons to our flower shop for delivery here.
We'll contact the customer at the cases that substitutions are significant and discuss options.
OUR STRONG RULE:
we substitute unavailable products with more expensive goods of a higher class only - WITH no ADDITIONAL fees.
For example, if the ordered Classic roses are not available in our store, we deliver Elite roses also WITH NO EXTRA charges.

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 Oposhnya, 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 Oposhnya, 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 Oposhnya 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.

There is one more really popular indoor-plant here in Ukraine - Phalaenopsis Orchid. There are pink, white, violet, yellow blossoming Phalaenopsis Orchids available at our flower shop during the year. Among the incredible, amazing orchids of a different colors there is one that definitely makes a real furor for absolutely all receivers! It's a incredible Blue plant Orchid. It should be admitted, that a blue orchids actually do not exist. We import such orchids from Europe (Holland) and European florists make them by using a specific floristic paint. They watered the roots of a white orchids by that paint. A plant "drink" it and flowers become amazingly blue, tremendous color! Unfortunately later, when plants are watering by a regular water, new flowers gradually become white again.
When ordering this plant, please, remember, that a Blue Orchid can be not available at some periods at our Oposhnya flower shop. As it was told above, it is importing from Europe into Ukraine and your order can fall into a days between two supplies. If it happens, we'll inform you immediately and offer a few options of solution.
Is delivery of any bouquet or gift from Oposhnya 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 Oposhnya. 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 Oposhnya shops. At that case we organize its mailing from the other Oposhnya.
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.
