Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.
Here are some things you want to consider when ordering your Valentine’s Day Flowers.
Let’s begin with how to order your flowers.
First of all ordering online is not always the best way to go. When ordering online you are not always dealing with a real florist. During holiday seasons many companies will setup bogus websites to reap the rewards of the holiday and deceive the consumer. You might think you are dealing with a local florist, but you are actually dealing with a clearing house that will charge you all kinds of fees that you can avoid by dealing with your local florist. How do you avoid this you ask? It’s simple. Just pick up the phone and call the florist. Ask them for their physical address and if you can stop by and see the flowers. Better yet go to your local florist and see what they have to offer. I always recommend go all my customers to search online for a florist in the zip code in your area or the area where you want to send flowers, and check out their reviews and call them direct. Dealing with your Local Florist you will cut out additional fees and deal with professionals that can help guide you through the process of ordering the flowers that will make your purchase more personal and save money, and you know we are all about saving money.
Let’s begin with roses.
Red roses are the most traditional Valentine’s Day flower that are sent, but in the past years we have found not always the most popular. Roses come in a variety of grades and lengths along with some amazing colors and varieties. Long stem roses are roses that average 24 to 30 inches or more in length. We at Apple Blossoms Floral Designs only carry Premium Grade A long stem roses. You typically won’t find these at your local grocer or big box store.
Mixed flowers over the years have been the growing trend in popularity for Valentine’s Day. Studies by the Society of American Florists have shown that women prefer a variety of flowers for Valentine’s day. I know it’s easy to just up and order Red Roses, but there are so many wonderful flowers out there. Everything from Exotic Tropical Flowers to amazing Garden Flowers such as Tulips, Garden Roses, Peonies, and the list goes on. If you are looking for something that will really WOW your Valentine let us create a custom floral arrangement the will be more personal and show you put more thought into selecting special. You can always request to add a Red Rose or two.
Even better yet. Stop by your Local Florist and let them create a hand tied bouquet of a mix of fresh flowers wrapped to take to your Valentine. Just imagine arriving home after work with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers and present it to your Valentine. Something much more special than the cookie cutter bouquet you will find at your local grocer or street corner vendor. Something that will be more personal, custom made and unique. You will find at Apple Blossoms Floral Designs as well at many of your local florists you will get the very best of the best and freshest of the fresh flowers available not to mention supporting the local economy and building a relationship with a trusted professional.
