At Blossom Flower Shops in Yonkers and White Plains, our florists are here to remind you that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and that it’s never too early to start planning your romantic day.
Why We Recommend Ordering in Advance for Valentine’s Day
Get the Flowers of Your Choice
Valentine’s Day is the busiest day of the year for florists (and also for heart-shaped box factories). This means that flowers are in high-demand and the most popular flowers and designs often sell out early. By ordering early, you’re more likely to be able to guarantee the specific, color, flower, or design you are interested in. The closer we get to the holiday, the quicker we sell out of certain products.
Stamp Out the Stress
There’s often a lot of pressure on couples to create a perfectly romantic day on February 14th. If you leave the planning to the last minute, this can create a lot of stress. Make your dinner reservations, pick out your gifts, and order your flowers well before the most romantic day of the year arrives.
Prior to Valentine’s Day, flower prices are often reduced to encourage early ordering. By ordering your Valentine’s Day flowers early, you’ll impress your loved one, amp up the anticipation for Valentine’s Day’s arrival, and have extra money to spend on a fancy dinner or date.
How Early Should You Order?
Valentine’s Day orders typically start arriving in mid-January, but you can order as early as you’d like! The earlier, the better, but to be able to prioritize a first choice you should ideally submit your flower order at least one week in advance.
Why It’s Best to Shop Local for Valentine’s Day Flowers
With a local florist, you’ll experience no surprises — at least not bad ones. When you order, you’ll discuss your design directly with a person who is in the same location as the flowers that you are receiving or sending. Local florists know which blooms are freshest and which are the best available. Unlike a non-local flower delivery company, your local florist will be able to guide you to the right design choices for your location.
Making Sure You Choose the Most Gorgeous Flowers for Valentine’s Day
When it comes to flowers for Valentine’s Day, you want to get it right. While it’s hard to go wrong with flowers — we think they’re all beautiful — some are definitely better choices for romantic occasions than others. Can you say long-stemmed red roses? Red roses are a must for a romantic partner on Valentine’s Day (unless they’ve explicitly told you they prefer something else). Remembering your loved one’s favorite flower or color can also make for a more personal, heartfelt sentiment.
At Blossom Flower Shops, our florists are always available to help you pick the perfect bouquet. When in doubt, we recommend you trust the professionals. We will guide you in the right direction. We are as passionate about the service, product, and design you are receiving as you are about the person you are sending it to. We won’t steer you wrong, and we are going to be sure you are as proud as we are of what we create!
