Freshie Faves: Valentine’s Flowers

Picking out flowers should be fun, especially at Valentine’s Day. But I also understand how choosing just the right gift for someone else can be nerve-wracking, especially for those who do not send flowers regularly. Or, how it can be easy to fall into the rut of the traditional dozen red roses with baby’s breath– beautiful but maybe a little TOO traditional.

So if you want to make an impact this Valentine’s Day, come see our floral designers. We’ve come up with some fresh, contemporary designs that can be ready quickly, at an affordable price, but that aren’t the same-old, same-old.

Like the one we’re calling Sweet Unique – a contemporary arrangement of roses, curly willow and a dramatic antique hydrangea in a cylinder vase. Or our spin on the traditional red roses – ours features 18 blooms, in a striking rectangular glass vase with a minimum of greenery and filler so the flowers really stand out.

You can order these or other arrangements at 903-747-3511, or stop by our floral department 7 days a week to talk to one of our floral experts. And, yes, we deliver.  But remember to get your order in soon because our delivery time slots will fill up fast!

If you want something truly one-of-a-kind, our designers can help there, too. Here are some things to keep in mind when designing your own arrangement:

Share your budget with the designer: Knowing how much you want to spend will help you focus, and will also help the floral designer steer you toward blooms and arrangements that fit within it, so you can find the right flowers quickly.  And, if your budget is on the thin side, you’ll be surprised what creative ideas our designers will have for stretching it.

Think of where the flowers will likely be displayed: This will help you focus on both scale and style of the arrangement.  Will the flowers be set in a hallway with a soaring ceiling, a tall table, or in a small office cubicle? A room with a high ceiling and large furniture cries out for a larger, or taller, arrangement. Modern, simple arrangements, maybe in a slim glass cylinder, will look best in a home with modern, stark lines and furniture.

Consider your beloved’s taste: This is the hardest one for most people. That’s where designers can really help. They’ll want to know things like the recipient’s home décor (shabby chic, traditional or contemporary?) and personal style in clothing and jewelry. If that’s difficult for you to explain, they’ll be ready with some of our unique ideas, like our 100-centimeter roses – a single, super-long-stemmed rose in an Italian tower vase.
