If you’re looking to bring a smile to your lover’s face, or surprise a friend or family member who is part of the LGBTQ+ community this Pride Month, Canadian flower delivery service Callia has some special offerings that are sure to add some colour and beauty to your loved ones’ lives.
Callia’s Pride Bouquet, available exclusively this June, draws from all colours of the rainbow. Bright yellow lilies and peachy roses are immediate eye-catchers, while chrysanthemums, two-toned carnations, and waxflowers add lovely splashes of pink and magenta. Fresh eucalyptus and solidago round out this sweet-smelling, hand-tied arrangement.
We love that Callia is also partnering with Pflag Canada, an organization offering peer-to-peer support and resources to Canadians facing challenges with sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. You can add a donation to any gift when you check out.
For some extra flair, the “Brighter With You” gift set includes The Pride bouquet, a healthy tea latte blend, a contemporary modern vase and a donation to Pflag Canada.
Callia was born after their founder Catherine Metrycki was frustrated by how complicated it was to send flowers to her friend. She wanted to make the flower-buying process quick and easy at Callia, while also focusing on fresh, high-quality floral arrangements. That’s why they only offer 3 styles of bouquets at a time, depending on what’s in bloom.
“We’re really fortunate to be part of people’s moments. When you’re sending flowers it’s different than when you’re ordering a pizza or buying a pair of shoes,” said Catherine. “You’re sending them because you really care about someone.”
Callia is based in Winnipeg but delivers to a bunch of locations across Canada and the US.
