Cartoon characters are not our usual style, but customer-centricity is. So when our customers asked us for a bouquet in Hello Kitty style, we struggled internally for about 10 minutes, then started researching to make that perfect bouquet of Hello Kitty cuteness in our signature gardeny style.

If it's a Hello Kitty bouquet, then it certainly should look like those cute kitties with no mouths. We hunted around for the right flowers, the right eyes, the right nose and the right ribbons. I will not lie and said we got it right the first time. Or second time. 

Most florist used carnations to create their kitties. We didn't really like that effect. So after a couple of trials, we decided to go for Ping Pong Chrysanthemums. We had about 4 different sizes of beads for eyes and 2 different sizes for nose. And because we couldn't find the right ribbons at that time, we decided to handmade those tiny little bows (I saw tweezers in a whole different light at that time). And the ears. Oh the ears. We tried fabric, papers in different weights, texture, and then trimmed and re-trimmed... 

It was a struggle, we against our need to create that exact representation of a floral Hello Kitty. But I think we can say, we've nailed it.

It's one of our signatures today, and I'm proud to say customers have feedback they haven't seen better versions of these kitty blossoms in Singapore yet.

If you or your girl is a fan and would like one of these cute bouquets, let us know a couple of days in advance if you can, so we can source for the perfect ping pong chrysanthemum for your Hello Kitty cuteness in perfection.
