With the rise of commercial bouquet companies and online ordering the personal touch in floral arrangements tends to fall by the wayside. Mass produced bouquets LOOK like mass produced bouquets. If you want to give your friends and family unique and inspired bouquets then your local neighborhood flower shop is the BEST place to do that.
Most people do not know how to get the most out of their local florist and we are here to help!
• You can preorder your flowers for important holidays for the whole year so the pressure of remembering to order is lifted. Not all florists offer this, but we proudly do. Here is a link.
• Tell your florist how much you want to spend. $35-$65 is an average amount to spend on an arrangement, though it can vary. The less particular you are about the type of flowers used, the easier it will be to work within a smaller budget and make a less expensive bouquet look like more.
• Getting your flowers arranged in a vase will always look better than taking a bouquet home and putting it in a vase you already have. It isn’t as easy as you may think to arrange flowers in a vase and make them look amazing. Most florists offer a cheap vase option, and it is totally worth it if you want your floral arrangement to make the best impression.
• Tell your florist how long you want your flowers to last. Some flowers last longer than others. If you need your flowers to look fresh for a week your florist can use heartier flowers that are less likely to wilt or shed. Conversely, if you only need your flowers to look fabulous for one or two days your florist can choose from a wider variety of flowers.
