Why You Should Order Your Valentine's Day Flower Early

It's hard to believe that we are half way through January so that puts us less than 3 weeks to Valentine's Day. Now don't start cringing and getting all stressed out. Let's face it, we have a nice selection of lovely floral gifts on our website right now and if you order prior to February 1st, you pay our regular price on roses instead of the holiday pricing. Here's a tip for you, order early and save money. One less thing for you to do later.

Here are some Valentine's Day Gift Ordering Tips for You!
Valentine's Day is on a Thursday this year which leads us to believe it's going to be a busy one for us florists. I'm not sure if I want to cry or laugh about that! The truth is that there are more people that want to send flowers than florists that can deliver them. Oh and heaven forbid you order from those companies that ship flowers in a box. Do you really want your sweetie to get their Valentine's Day roses from the FedEX man? I don't think so. 

Call a florist in the area where you want the flower delivered. Order them as early as you can and realize that if you call on "The Day" they may be sold out or not have any more space on their delivery trucks. Valentine's Day is not time to do the "Same Day Delivery" option if you can help it. Here are a few more tips for you. 

  1. Who says you have to send Red Roses? No one and certainly not us florists. We have roses in lots of colors and they are all beautiful. If she doesn't like red roses, send her yellow, pink or peach. Whatever color she likes, she'll love getting on Valentine's Day
  2. Don't have the budget for those pricey roses? Why not send tulips, gerbera daisies or a lovely mixture of spring flowers. About 1/2 of the arrangements that leave our shop for Valentine's Day are not red roses. 
  3. Want a gift delivered that's a bit different? Why not send a big bouquet of balloons, a box of chocolates, a pretty blooming plant or a big teddy bear. Most florists have options other than floral arrangements to offer. 
  4. Send your Valentine's Day Gift early. Why? Why not? Wouldn't it be nice if she is the first to get something? Wouldn't it be nice for it to arrive at her office a day ahead instead of 3 pm on the "Day"? Certain shops charge a premium if delivered on the "Day", you may even be able to save a few dollars. Early is always better than later and truthfully, they are probably the same flowers so why not let her enjoy them longer! 
There you have it, some tips on how to order your Valentine's Day Flowers

All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered!
What is a prom corsage? A prom corsage is a small floral arrangement to be worn on a female’s wrist or collar. The prom corsage is typically purchased and given to her by her prom date. The wrist corsage is the most common kind, and is typically chosen to match the prom dress.

How to Make a Flower Puppy

It's amazing what you can do with 12 carnations and a little bit of creativity. Our Floral Designer Rocio loves making puppy arrangements so here she shares her tips with you! Here's what you will need ~ 12 full size carnations, floral glue, floral tape, a floral container, 1/3 of a block of floral foam and some assorted greenery.  First take your wet floral foam and tape it securely into your floral container.  Slowly start adding the 12 carnations starting with the top to form the head, the ears, the face and the 2 front legs. Keep going, adding carnations but only using 12 total! 
Now he has his 2 front legs, sitting over the edge of the container.  Using the floral glue, add the eyes and the nose. Be creative here. We use eyes and noses for the floral industry but you can use felt, screws or even a pip cleaner to form these facial features.   Next, start filling in with assorted greenery and mosses. This will become his little bed!  Be sure to fill in along the back. Reme…

How to Carry a Bridal Bouquet. It's not so hard....

People often ask me what is the right way to hold a bridal bouquet. I know some ladies think it's going to be hard but truthfully, even a cascade is very easy to carry. As in the example to the right, that's me holding a very sweet tear drop shaped bouquet (compliments of our bride Coleen). As you can see, I'm able to hold the bouquet with one hand and it's not uncomfortable for me in anyway.

The key to holding a cascade is to drop it down to the waist  level. I've seen many pictures of girls holding their bouquets too high, which is a very uncomfortable way to hold these. Second, holding it too high, especially in the case of the bride, blocks all the beautiful detail of their dresses. Remember, when you are walking down the aisle you want to appear relaxed and natural!

Another issue I've seen is to point the bottom of the bouquet outwards. Make sure that the bouquets sits nice and flush against your body. This will give you the best possible view in the pictu…
