The pink ones are either pinks or most likely carnations, but the yellow & coppery orange in the middle are chrysanthamums - they should have a distinctive (hard to describe) lemony/pungent scent if you crush the leaves (which are elongated & scalloped - see the leaf dead centre at the front and also to the left beneath the blooms in the top picture)  Don't know what the bell like pinky red ones are at the centre back.
Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

The white fluffy ones are gypsophila.  (No 'i' after the 'l').  Very easy to grow from seed.  Also come in pink.  Also Known as 'Baby's Breath'.  They are  perennial keep coming back.

Pink carnations very easy to grow from seed and  perennial.  Easy to take cuttings from.

Looking at My T&M catalogue the ones at the back do indeed look very much like alstromerias.

Big fat yellow and red one looks like a chrysanthamum could be a Dahlia.

The lovely daisy like yellow ones I think are also chrysanthamums.

Everybody is right, Alstro, Gyp, Pink carnations, bronze and yellow chrysanthemums.  But definitely no dahlias.  The large chrysant is known as incurved variety and the yellow ones are spray variety.  Lovely bouquet.  Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.
