Make It Special - The wordy bit, lots of pictures later.


The Make It Special team is primarily made up of florists and designers.  It is our mission to ensure that everything that leaves our shops is of the highest standard whether it is a £75.00 funeral tribute, a £45.00 wedding bouquet or a £10.00 bouquet as a weekend gift for the wife. Whether the selling price is high or low the item is equally important to us, as the giving of that floral item is important to you.

Our aim for Make It Special can be judged from our promise - making you day unique.  As customers you entrust us with your faith and belief that we will do a superb job for you and you will not be disappointed.

Our day to day work is the production of bespoke bouquets and floral products as well as the sale of floral sundries and small gifts.  We are members of a relay services so can ensure that whether the flowers are for a destination in the UK or even international we can help.  If you want a local delivery it is cheaper to phone us direct and we will deal with it in house.  If however you want to send flowers to the far flung outposts then we can arrange this through our iFlorist network service.

This website is designed to show you the sort of items we produce whether they be flowers, funerals or floral sundries or our services in weddings and or venue design.  It will give some representative prices and generally these will apply, but of course flowers are natural products and therefore fluctuate in price depending on the time of the year and whether there are special celebrations such as mothers day (here or abroad) or Valentines day.  A good example is red roses.  Most of the year they will remain at around the same price but approaching valentines day the demand on the growers is such that the price rockets, often by as much a 300%.  Equally white and blue flowers particularly Carnations and Chrysanthemums rocket in price around  Pentecost which is really big in Europe, and our flowers come from Holland.  Don't even get me started on Mothers day which has different dates in different countries within Europe.  

So whilst the prices are shown in many cases it's always best to phone to check.  It also means we can make alternative recommendations for you to help your budget.

We can deliver in the Torbay, Newton Abbot area for a very reasonable price, and will consider other areas depending on capacity.  And of course there is our relay service for items further afield.
