These Everlasting Roses Are The Perfect Bridesmaid Gift

  |   By Alison McGill

A beautiful bouquet of roses is a gorgeous gift but what if those blooms were artfully arranged in darling Parisian style boxes, custom coloured and treated to last a year? That’s exactly what Toronto-based Prairies And Petals (@prairiesandpetals) has created and you may have seen the flower company’s gorgeous creations pop up on your Instagram as they have become quite the social media sensation.

Reena Kumar, owner and founder of Prairies And Petals, says the inspiration behind the bouquets was to create a product that would leave a lasting impression on customers. “We were determined to find a solution to the problem so many people face: buying a fresh bouquet of roses that die after a week. Our roses are not only real but they last an entire year, and make the perfect gift for any occasion. We have reinvented a wholly modern approach to luxury arrangements!”

Prairies And Petals roses are treated with a secret solution to preserve and protect them. They do not need water and should be kept out of direct sunlight and at a steady room temperature to stay looking lovely for 12 months. We had some a few more questions for Kumar about her amazing arrangements which are absolutely brilliant for gifting your girls!

What are the range of colours available for your roses and how can arrangements be customized? “We have from over 12 different rose colours to choose from. Our platform allows users to customize from over 1,000 different styles and patterns, and create the entire look of their arrangement. They can customize from the patterns, letters, numbers, shapes, and any specific customization they have for their arrangement. We also have a team of designers that work directly with our customers, if they are interested in customizing the individual rose itself, from bi-colour or even tri-colour roses. The possibilities truly are endless!

What is your most popular arrangement for a bridesmaid gift or bridesmaid proposal gift? “Our most popular arrangement for a bridesmaid gift is both our Miniature (a single rose) and Diora Collection (four roses). These are the perfect sizes and are extremely complementary for bridesmaid packages. Brides continue to push the boundaries and make each moment special leading into their wedding. The bridesmaid proposal is a very important part of their lead up to the wedding that we love being a part of. For brides that have a smaller bridal party will usually opt for our Signature Small Round arrangement (12 roses) and Square Arrangement (16 roses) to gift their girls.”

How much time do you need to process an order? “We are an online only business and offer North American wide shipping which means our flowers go almost anywhere! Orders usually are delivered in anywhere from two to seven days depending on the shipping address and delivery preference.”
