Second, the Forever Fiora preserved rose box—this can last up to three years. We’ve also just introduced the limited edition Forever Fiora “Corazon” heart-shaped preserved rose. Lastly, of course, our classic round flower buckets. An add-on perfect for Valentine’s is our limited edition imported teddies by Russian artist Ekaterina Lepnitskaya. These designer bears are all handmade and finished in high quality fabric, which feature Ekaterina’s trademark piping technique. Not only do they look good with our flowers, they also make a great accent or conversation piece to any interior.
