Sending a bunch of flowers is lovely way to celebrate Valentine's Day with your special guy or gal. However, there are a few things to remember when you are choosing the perfect blooms.
The earlier you get your Valentine's order in to your local florist, the better. Florists become overwhelmed with orders in the weeks leading up to Valentine's Day, and you will want to ensure that your sweetheart's order will contain the flowers you want, as well as delivery on Valentine's Day. Ordering early allows your florist to guarantee both of those (in most cases).
Another reason why it is so important to contact your local florist directly when ordering is because they can tell you what flowers are in season. Flowers that are in season last longer, are fresher, and have more availability.
Roses tend to be the flower of choice on Valentine's Day, but many consider them to be cliche. Consider the person you are sending flowers to. Do they tend to enjoy old fashioned romance? Roses may be the way to go. If they are a free spirit, you might consider sending them a bunch with Natives, tulips, or whatever their favourite may be!
Think a nice bunch of flowers is outside of your budget? Think again! Keeping some things we've already discussed in mind, like what flowers are in season, and ordering early, your local florist can usually work with you on your budget. This is why you should always order locally. Your florist will know what flowers they will have on hand and if they will have an abundance of certain flowers.
Shopping with your local florist will always result in the freshest flowers at the best cost. Your local florist can provide accurate delivery schedules and times. They also have great knowledge and skill. This will translate into a beautiful bunch of flowers that can't be found anywhere else.
