It's Friday, or as we like to call, weekend eve! And it's looking like a wet and rainy, indoors weekend, so why not bring some nature inside with you to enjoy!
We are big believers in self-sent flowers. So much so that we're going to put our money where our mouth is and randomly double size three self-sent Peony bunches ordered before 10am today! You don't need anyone to tell you that you're worthy of flowers! You know you are, and we do too!
Flowers could be the oldest true gift. We're sure our Neanderthal ancestors would have used them to make amends for forgetting the mammoth steaks at the shops. A timeless gift.
Victorian Era art critic, John Ruskin wrote that 'Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity', which rings so true for us on days that seem more difficult. Flowers will get us through.
It seems to us that it's a good week to have a good week! There's nothing stopping us but ourselves.
We all should have that one friend that we want to grow old and senile with. Then they can be your new friend! Try not to forget to remind them what they mean to you...
"Colour is a power which directly influences the soul" - Russian Painter, Wassily Kandinsky. We certainly feel like an Influencer today!
Isn't it funny how our bodies react to unanticipated happiness. "Our tears can sting with such sweet surprise, happy tears for happy eyes."
Giving and travel are the only two things you can spend money on that make you richer...and possibly lottery tickets...or shares...you get the idea though right!?
What better surprise for Mother's Day, than another surprise after Mother's Day; to show that the day is irrelevant but the appreciation and love is constant! :)
Flowers are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Sorry about your hair", "Thanks for carrying me", "Congrats on the rabbit". As big supporters of the 'just because' bunch we see a lot of funny reasons for sending flowers. It keeps life interesting!
Flowers are the perfect little vessel to let a loved one know that even when you can't be with them, you are with them. We don't know how that works but we love that it does.
For some today feels great, for others this is the Mondayest Monday that ever Mondayed, but for everyone, there's flowers!
Today is Administrative Professionals Day, a day to recognise the hard work of office professionals for their contributions to the workplace. We know their work allows others some to soar, and without them, those people would flounder! Happy AP Day to all!
Some days you just have to throw caution to the wind, throw budgets against the wall, take the risk and get ALL the colour! Especially if all the colour includes Coral Peonies!!!
On this day the Empire State building was opened in New York, Citizen Kane premiered, in 1926 the Ford factory adopted a 40 hour week and tomorrow is International Tuba Day. If those things aren't reason enough for flowers, we don't know what is!?
When you're hurt...flowers! When you're happy...flowers! When it sucks...flowers! When you're sad...flowers! Whenever and wherever...flowers!
The flower is a hug you can send to someone when you can't get your arms around them right now. They make things all better.
Today's bunch is the whole package. Not only is it incredibly beautiful to look at but it has a wonderful personality and is motivated with a positive outlook on life. This is a bunch you'd have no qualms taking home to your parents.
Judging by the number of out of office replies we're getting, we reckon most of you thought ahead and booked this time off. We all know someone who wasn't quite as organised and is suffering right now. We have just the thing to get them through...
Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul - Luther Burbank
We don't want to panic anyone...try not to be alarmed...but...this is the last chance to grab an Itty Bitty Bunch until Tuesday next week. We've made it a fresh, bold and uber-Easter-y beauty to get you through.
Isn't it wonderful that as humans, we have the ability to brighten someone's day with simple gestures - a hello at the bus stop, a quick hug or an unexpected compliment can be the difference between down and uplifted. A delightful trait!
It's often said that one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day. Well we're positive we need another coffee.
Today, there are a ton of people (including us) nursing some serious guilt over their indulgence on the weekend. Let them know it's okay; that it will only take around three months on a treadmill to get back to where they were.
The origin of the word Friday comes from 'day of Venus', Venus is also a planet, planets may carry life, life includes plants, flowers grow on plants, hence flowers on a Friday makes perfect sense.
In the words of famous Australian poet and balladeer, Peter Andre, all you have to do is give them some kind of sign (girl), to show them that you're mine (girl)...alright? Crappy 90's pop references aside, we have just the thing!
Flowers are just like humans in so many ways, they respond and grow better if they're nurtured, they are healthiest when they grow together in groups, umm they like water...they...okay in a few ways.
Someone that you know, out there right now, could really, really use a bunch of flowers today. It could be the difference between a day of the blues and a day where new beginnings seem possible.
Treat someone today! Not tomorrow, not soon, not on a special occasion...TODAY! Why, you ask? Really, the question should be 'why not..?'
We don't think it matters how long we do this, we'll still be amazed at the amount of people who simply see something beautiful and decide they would like that to be in someone else's life for a brief moment.
Ice cream, chocolate, beach walks, warm baths, new sheets, lazy sunday's and fresh flowers. They are all amazing, and you can have at least one delivered to your door today. We're still working on our warm bath delivery service.
Some relatively famous people professed that all you need is love, which we completely agree with, as long as everyone's willing to bend the rules and include a love of food, of coffee and of course flowers.
When words are no longer enough, when simple prose can no longer convey the intensity of your emotion...well, jam them on some flowers! Works a treat!
Matisse wrote that there are always flowers for those who want to see them. Metaphorically, we're sure it means that you can find beauty only if you are open to beauty, but we're glad we can provide some actual flowers for those who want them!
“It’s not that we spend five days looking forward to just two. It’s that most people do what they enjoy most on those two days. Imagine living a life where every day is your Saturdays and Sundays. Make everyday your weekend. Make every day a play-day…“ -
James A. Murphy
Thursday is an underrated day, don't you think? It's almost as if we should celebrate it by buying flowers from an local Adelaide small business (this paragraph may or may not contain marketing ploys).
While offering gifts is somewhat common throughout the animal kingdom, it is only in humans who offer a gift with no expectation of anything in return. We are all uniquely capable of such pure loveliness!
We quite often become quite besotted by flowers at the markets each morning and we wonder, does this happen in other professions? Do greengrocers lose their cool over a particularly nice turnip?
One small positive thought first thing in the morning can change your whole day, week or year. Start your Monday the right way, today is full of possible.
'Tis Friday and all through the land, the people rejoiced as the work week faded into the wide blue yonder and the weekend approacheth. And celebrate they did, merrily! Yar!
How much would it change your day to receive some completely unexpected flowers today? Feel that feeling, harness that feeling, and forward that feeling on. It feels just as good (almost).
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give" - Winston Churchill.
If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear a flower in your hair. If you are, however, travelling anywhere around Adelaide, feel free to wear your flowers less; perhaps carry them in a nice hessian-wrapped bunch instead!
Today seems like a good day to send yourself some flowers and make everyone in the office curious and slightly jealous...then sign it from Chris Hemsworth ;)
For anyone who is struggling this week, better days are coming. They are called: Saturday and Sunday!
Thursday is such an overlooked day, it's no hump day nor is it the day before a weekend. It's the neglected middle child of the weekday family, the bronze medal in the day Olympics or...well you get the point. Let's change all of that!
What's better than flowers on a Wednesday? Flowers on...no, there's nothing better, flowers on a Wednesday takes the cake...actually flowers and cake on Wednesday is better.
Shakespeare wasn't lying: a flower called by any other name would still smell as sweet. Bleame, Cvijet, Floro, Bulaklak, Bunga, Kbitka or Fleur...yup smells sweet as!
Today is International Women's Day! A day to celebrate the brave, courageous, powerful women in your life! We all know a few!
Today's bunch will put a little pep in your step and a boost to your caboose! That may not make a lot of sense, but flowers on a Thursday sure does!
Whatever you or your loved one are doing today, it's about 95.7% more likely that it would be improved, accompanied by flowers. Prove us wrong :)
All flowers are really so sweet, can be given to someone to treat. The recipients adore, the flowers much more, when delivered direct to their street.
Drew Barrymore once said "I don't want to be a stinky poo-poo girl, I want to be a happy flower child". No doubt that's a weird thing to say, but we can relate.
We're sure you agree that we would now like this weather to b#gger right off! Enough is enough, it's too darn hot! So we've chosen some hardy flowers, some resilient drivers and we are going to show this heatwave that it will not defeat us! Are you with us!?
Quite often people complain about roses having thorns when in truth perhaps people should be glad that thorns have roses.
Want to start someone's day on a bright high?? Maybe it's your own day? Maybe you just like colour? Maybe you don't need any reason to just buy flowers? Maybe the amount of question marks in this spiel is too high???
Flowers are the perfect little vessel to let a loved one know that even when you can't be with them, you are with them. We don't know how that works but we love that it does.
Flowers are the most beautiful message bearer. Attach a message of hope, of love, of empathy or of friendship and the flowers transform those simple words.
Once in a blue moon, we green light and roll the red carpet for a bunch that passes the hue test with flying colours, we are tickled pink with the result and it's not just rose coloured glasses.
Today's bunch is playful, jubilant, lively and enjoys long walks on the beach, twilight picnics and the thrill of finding someone to hold it tightly.
Swipe right on today's bunch for just $33 including delivery if you order before 1pm or stock runs out.
In this crazy, bustling, concrete jungle the majority of us choose to live in, isn't it lovely that flowers can colour a small fragment and return us to nature for just a fleeting moment.
John Keats wrote "A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness". Well, that's a pretty good selling point for flowers!
For a lot of us, today is an exceptional day. For a few of us the day will not be. For every scenario, there's always flowers!
There are some bleary-eyed, weary-boned zombies stumbling around the Itty Bitty HQ today after yesterday's Valentine's shenanigans. But our trained zombie's have sure put together a lovely little assortment!
Want to really surprise your loved one this Valentine's Day? Why not send them a bunch a day early today? They'll either think you're the sweetest...or an idiot who can't use a calendar! We like those odds.
Studies have shown patients who received flowers needed less painkillers, had lower blood pressure and pulse rates, and were less anxious and tired. They are nature's mental health elixir.
For millennia poets, painters, writers and sculptors have been captivated by flowers. They are possibly the most prolific muse of all...and understandably.
"Flowers are the music of the ground, from earth's lips spoken without sound" - Edwin Curran
When isn't it the right time to send flowers? We can only think of one time and that's when someone is suffering from a horrendous hayfever attack. Other than that, you're good to go!
We genuinely forgot what it feels like to have rainfall on you until this morning. It's so lovely and fresh! Fresh, just like today's flowers!!! (editor:great segue)
At Itty Bitty Bunch we truly believe that a little something can convey a lot of something. We've staked our livelihood on knowing that the message is more important than the vessel, but if the vessel is also lovely...

There's three days of weekend ahead of us! It seems like a good idea to get some blooms into your life for that!
Planning on staying indoors for the next couple of days away from nature? Bring a little of the good part of nature inside with you! These flowers look great behind closed curtains!
Someone in your life could use flowers right now to remind them that even in the darkest time, there is colour and light in the world.
Our favourite bunches to deliver are the anonymous ones. It forces a recipient to take stock of the lovely people in their life who could potentially send the a gift!!
What a special feeling Friday has...the feeling of endless possibilities. We may lay pizza-stained on the couch all weekend or we could take a long and beautiful hike? Nobody knows, and that is special!

Tuesday Bluesday? More like Tuesday Bluesday Shmoozday!!! You are awesome and so is this weeks' potential! Let's make today an exceptional day!
From thank you for dinner to thinking of you. From my condolences to my congratulations. The messages are varied and peculiar. Downright hilarious to indecipherable. Heartfelt and inspirational. What would you like to say to your loved one?
We've gone a little overboard with the variety of flowers today but we just couldn't resist, it's Friday and it's the first week back! It's all your gain though!
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not. - Georgia O'Keeffe, American Artist
Flowers just make everything a little bit better. From celebrations, to thank you's, birthday's and lazy days with everything in between! We just love them, which is lucky considering the profession we chose!
Still settling back into the routines of everyday life? Feeling the strain from the extra pudding serve? Please don't feel like you're alone, we've got you covered.
We're BACK!!! Some people will be sad to head back to work today and yes, getting out of bed was difficult, we will admit, but we made it and we're ready to deliver some delicious little bundles and get 2019 off to a corker!
It's here, the last day of our working year and the last chance to grab an Itty Bitty Bunch in 2018! We can't thank everyone enough for all the support and kind words in the last 12 months...now let's go out with a bang!
It's the second last day of the year for us. We're ready for a cracker (excuse the pun)! So get those orders in or Yule be sorry (embrace the pun). Oh deer, we are sleigh-in it, how rudolph-us!
(become the pun)
If we said the sentence 'Gee, I'm so grateful [x] is in my life', there'll always be one face which will appear. Let's show [x] they are that person to you.
Nature truly paints the most imaginative and wondrous painting with its flowers. It's hard to imagine a legion of artists being able to imagine the variety and diversity of even a handful of flowers.
And just like that we are down to the last week of the year! Sleigh bells are ringing, eggnog is flowing and the season of giving is here!
Ah Summer, you glorious beast with your 10 degree weather, gale force winds and your deluge of rain. Looks like we'll need to create our own sunshine!
We've brought the colour today! All the colour! Perfect to cheer up a dreary, windy morning!
There's something so lovely and gentle about the combination of pink and white. For us, it's perhaps the memory of two thirds of neopolitan ice cream or something deep and meaningful like that...
Name us a thing that says it better than flowers? Okay, words IS a good answer, but you can combine them both with our little deliveries!
Someone you know needs a pick-me-up after the weekend they've just had. Their car broke down, their friend stood them up, or their cat just wouldn't give them the affection they craved.
There are only a few weeks until an overweight, bearded man is due to break and enter your house, steal your cookies, drink your milk and apparently knows everything about your children? When you look at it that way, let's skip traditions and give flowers instead.
Hot days call for resilient flowers! And we've done just that, bunched them all together to form a heat-resistant bundle of goodness!
Today's bunch is just a little romantic, absolutely guaranteed to woo your significant other! (woo not guaranteed, individual woo may vary, see the back for terms and conditions, please read this in a super fast voice)
Do you know a dial that could use a smile? Know a mug that could use a hug? Know a frown that could be upside down? Know a profile that could...well you get the point.
"One good teacher in a lifetime may sometimes change a delinquent into a solid citizen". It's time to start thanking our educators as the year winds up! We have the perfect way!
Ha, it's what? December tomorrow? The year is almost finished? We're pretty certain it was February around three weeks ago, what happened? Oh well, let's embrace the 2018 coma and get geared up for the festive season!
The flower is such a powerful little vessel. Capable of holding and expressing the full gamut of emotion and sentiment using their own language of look and smell. That is something...also, the little Peonies sure help!
In each day there 86400 seconds in which you can decide to make someone else's day better. 86400 opportunities where you can assist, brighten or choose to walk away. It's one of the joys of being human, there's almost always that second.
It seems like almost anything you buy these days has a catch or a hidden cost! We're very happy we can buck that trend with our all-inclusive little bunches.
Oh Monday morning, we did NOT see you coming! You really snuck in here and caught us unaware and unprepared! We have the perfect antidote though...
Whether you're binge-watching a full season of some obscure television series from five years ago, nursing the mother of all hangovers or procrastinating about doing that mound of dishes in the sink, at least it will be a bit prettier with flowers in the house.
A study by James Fowler of the University of California found that generosity or giving by one person inspired further generosity and altruism towards different people later in the week and may in fact spread by three degrees. FACT: Giving is contagious!
Is there a friend you haven't seen in a while? Someone that you've let 'life' come between? That one friend who you see after years and it's like only a day has passed? You should contact them for a catch-up, email them, message on social media or even send them a bunch of these little beauties with a small note telling them it's been too long. What more important thing do you have on today?
Happy Tuesday everyone! It's not celebrated anywhere near enough. Every day should be a celebration, the odds of you being here, alive, conscious, able to experience are so vastly slim, it should be cause for joyous commemoration.
No moping about, no complaining that the weekend was too short. Take control of your mood, send yourself or someone you know some prettiness and get this week started in the right way!
We're not sure what it is but something told us that the world could use a little bit of colour today...and every day! We listened!
We love experimenting with colour and texture in creating these bunches everyday, it's like a brand new white canvas to work with each morning, with unlimited paint supplies and a market full of inspiration.
It's Wednesday!!! And, if you can spell out Wednesday without internally saying WED-NES-DAY, then we think you're better than us, and deserve some flowers!
It's so nice to sit and try and compute how many times in history the humble flower has saved relationships, mended friendships, surprised, consoled and brightened a persons day. Such a simple, pure act which can carry so much meaning.
Fresh and bright for a Monday morning! Get that week started the best way possible!
A weekend of hot coffee, a good book, a cosy couch, a pet to snuggle against you and fresh flowers to provide the scent. We can all dream...
What can be said about today's bunch that isn't spoken by the pictures. They tell a much greater story than we could express in our own hasty prose.

Famed botanist and pioneer in agricultural science, Luther Burbank once wrote that "Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul". We vehemently concur...
Sometimes, with the current news media it can seem like everything is wrong with the world. In this job, we see every day, that it couldn't be more wrong! Choose flowers, not hate!
Is it possible to include too much colour in any one bunch? That was the question we posed this morning, and in case you couldn't tell, the unanimous decision was...NO!!!
We tried to come up with a way to tie in today's flowers with a Halloween reference but unfortunately we failed spooktacularly.
We're taking a moment to think about the poor parents that have battled the sugar-high children yesterday! Coffee, a sit down and maybe some flowers will help!?
Flower budget...more like schmower schmudget! No matter the cost, there was no way we were leaving the market without these amazing Coral Peonies. These will sell crazy quick so get in fast!
You want colour? YOU WANT COLOUR!? You can't handle the colour!!! Actually, that's a bit presumptuous, we don't know your colour-handling abilities, perhaps you can!
Today is World Teachers' Day, a day to honour teachers for their contributions. Their impact can last a lifetime, so let's let them know we appreciate them!

We're a little giggly and have been left with butterflies in our stomach after meeting the most lovely flowers at the market this morning. It's nothing serious yet (touch wood), but we have a good feeling our relationship is going places.
The glorious aromas emanating from today's bunch take us back to a simpler time in our childhood wandering the paddocks on the farm and foraging for native blooms...and we grew up in the suburbs, that's how powerful the smell is..! :)
Buddha reportedly wrote that "If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole world would change". Flowers certainly changed our world and we hope that one day this rings true for someone who receives one of our little bunches.
Be the sunshine when the skies are grey to someone today by delivering a little surprise!
It's the last work day of the school holidays and we are certain there are some completely frazzled parents out there, who we know love their kids but after two weeks full-time could just...by George...
Striking - adjective:
1. Attracting attention or notice through unusual or conspicuous qualities
2. Today's Itty Bitty Bunch
It's said that there are always flowers for those who want to see them. Perhaps we can relate to that more than others but we love the premise.
