Callia flowers and Bordeaux

Imagine your doorbell ringing and a big turquoise box being handed to you filled with beautiful flowers. That’s precisely what we experienced last week when FedEx delivered a Callia bouquet to our home office.

Launched in Winnipeg in 2016 and featured on Dragon’s Den, female-founded Callia prepares and delivers farm-fresh, fragrant bouquets for all occasions. Their flowers last longer because they’re stored in the cold-chain until delivered to keep the buds from opening until you open the box. Each delivery arrives with a couple of packets of liquid plant food to mix into the vase.

The colourful Bordeaux bouquet, part of their current collection, features unique and long-lasting pincushion protea, chrysanthemums in rich jewel tones and luxurious burgundy leucodendron leaves. For texture, sweet hypericum berries, soft bunny tails and sweetly-scented eucalyptus are added to the mix.

These creations last much longer than store-bought bouquets, as Callia’s team selects seasonal products and hand-ties them ready to place into a vase.

No need to re-arrange the blooms either: Just snip the stem bottoms diagonally and make sure the flowers fit just above the vase. Keep the twine on the bouquet as well to help maintain the arrangement design.

Callia creates only three bouquet styles at a time every four to six weeks, based on what’s fresh and in season, which in turn provides super-fresh, great-value flowers that last for weeks. They’re delivered in a 100% recyclable box.

They’re open from Monday to Friday in the Greater Vancouver area and delivery stats at $9. Across Canada, find Callia in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario and The Maritimes.

They also offer regular delivery (with a choice of frequency of between one and nine weeks). Visit Callia online for details and to view their current assortment.

Through the end of this year, Chateau de Courteillac Bordeaux has a promotion with Callia. On the bottle is a neck hanger with a unique code to receive a $5 discount off your first Callia bouquet order with delivery to over 36 cities across Canada.

Chateau de Courteillac Bordeaux has a bright ruby red colour with aromas of cherry, red currant, herb and plum, combined with notes of vanilla and spice. It’s a well-balanced wine from a region 20 minutes southeast of Saint-Emilion and 14km south of Castillon la Bataille, in the commune of Ruch.

This duo is a great idea for the holidays, whether you’re celebrating with family or thinking of sending your loved ones seasonal good tidings.
