  • Do not attempt to remove the roses from their containers.

Why do you state a range of roses in some of your arrangements rather than a specific number ?

The roses are natural and accordingly their size can vary even within their individual size classifications. Therefore we always state a range where applicable on each product page. Please be assured though that each flower box will always be full of blooms so your gift will look its best.

    Are your Sample Sale arrangements the same high quality as the rest of your range?

    Yes they are. The arrangements listed on our Sample Sale page are the same high quality, they have typically been used for photography on our website or are end of range or on-offs that we have developed in the workshop. With most of them you still have the opportunity to add your own personalisation . If you are not sure from the description what personalisation elements can be added please call.

    What's the difference between eternal roses, eternity roses, forever roses, one year roses and infinity roses?

    In short, there is no difference. The terms are interchangeable. You may also sometimes see infinity roses described as forever roses, which is strictly incorrect for this type of product, infinity roses are natural and will eventually start to fade although in our experience, if properly cared for this could be after 3 years or so. Forever roses should really describe the faux flowers such as those used in our Endless Love Hearts. These are made of 100's of tiny faux roses and will truly last forever.

    My purchase is a gift, will you include an invoice in my order?

    No. All arrangements are sent without any purchasing documents.

    I see there is an option for a Gift Card is this different to Personalisation?

    Yes the two are different, but both are included free of charge with your purchase. We refer to Personalisation as the message or name or phrase that you want displayed on the flower container e.g. front of the Hatbox or lid of a Make Up box. The gift tag is for your longer, personal greetings message and is attached to the gift with a ribbon or diamanté pin so that it can be read and then if required removed prior to display.

    Are all your arrangements made in and sent from the UK ?

    Yes we design and assemble all of arrangement in our own workshop based within the London area.

    How many rose colours do you have available?

    We currently stock over 15 Infinity Rose colours. The range currently includes 3 metallics, 3 rainbow mixes and 15 solid colours. The palette choice available for each arrangement is shown on the respective product page. Whilst we do our best to show the colours as accurately as possible please be aware that there could be some variation in shade either due to photographic conditions or the naturalness of the roses. If you require assistance prior to order please contact us on 07391 490924. If you require a colour or shade not shown, we can make a special order. 

    How To Care for your Infinity Roses


    Our infinity roses are real roses that have been specially treated to last longer and require no maintenance. ​However following the simple instructions below will ensure your roses retain their colour and avoid premature ageing and accordingly should last at least a year.

    • Keep them out of direct sunlight.
    • Do not subject them to excessive cold or hot temperatures.
    • Do not put anything on top of your roses, or drop them, they are as delicate as real roses.
    • Our infinity roses are presented in gorgeous hat boxes or makeup box organisers, or other containers. They are designed to remain in the box for the duration of their lifespan. Do not attempt to remove them.
    • Do not water your roses. The special preservation of your flowers means that they are automatically fed through the natural moisture in the air.
    • Do not allow contact with water. To clean gently blow any dust away.

    Infinity roses are real roses and as such will take on different characteristics during their lifespan. The first thing to note is that these roses have been stored in a cool and dark environment and have not been exposed until you remove the lid, once the lid is removed the roses will react to their new environment, their petals may open, and overtime their colour may change or fade, just like a fresh rose. It’s important not to touch the roses as they are delicate and can crack and get damaged when handled. It’s also highly important that you do not remove the roses from the hat box, the roses have been secured tightly and when removed are highly likely to get damaged.
