Mother's Day

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

As your mother is basking in the glory of her new beautiful florals, she will want to preserve that beauty for as long as possible. We have included a few fresh flower care tips to help. Feel free to send her this easy-to-follow guide once her flowers have been delivered.

First things first
If your flowers came in plastic wrapping, you would want to remove the plastic as soon as possible. This will allow the flowers to breathe. Secondly, you will want to give fresh water to your flowers to provide hydration. Place bouquets in a vase of appropriate size or fill your current vase with fresh water. If you need to, you can trim the stem’s ends to fit a vase you have. We recommend cutting flower stems at an angle with a sharp knife.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures: windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. Too much heat or sun exposure can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Cooler and more controlled conditions will be best to help preserve the beauty of your flowers.

Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or in the vicinity of cigarette smoke. These can produce ethylene gas which can reduce the life of your flowers and cause them to die more quickly.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

  • For vase arrangements, keep your vase filled with water. This allows the plants to drink the water they need and provides them hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we suggest still adding daily fresh water to your flowers.
  • Anytime the water begins to become cloudy, change the water out with fresh water. It would be good to clean the inside of your vase during this change before placing your flowers back into the vase. Using soapy water can help remove bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly. Then make sure you rinse your vase thoroughly.
  • As wilting leaves or stems occur, remove the strongly wilted contents to allow the fresher parts to be the center of attention.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. This will help your flowers better absorb water. We recommend avoiding using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and hinder the flower from being able to absorb the water.

Sweetest Day

Who Can I Give Flowers On Sweetest Day?

Unlike Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day is not a lover-exclusive holiday, nor is it as heavy weighing. Valentine’s Day has been known to include elaborate gifting, special date ideas, and trying to woo your romantic partner. However, Sweetest Day is much more laid back and focused on spreading cheer to anyone around you through a small gift like flowers accompanied by a little baggy of sweet treats. You have the ability to give a non-romantic gesture to anyone you please or offer an extra expression of affection to someone close to you.

Co-workers
We work alongside peers regularly and often forget to show care and appreciation for them. Whether you have a work bestie or feel a co-worker could use a good deed or piece of encouragement, a gift of flowers can be a wonderful small way to brighten their day. If you want to share words of encouragement or affirmation with them, you can provide a personalized card message in the online ordering process that will be delivered with their flowers.

Neighbors
If you’ve never had formal introductions, now is a perfect opportunity to break the ice and warm their heart. Sometimes we don’t know the ones who live right across or beside us. Don’t remain a stranger. Break the ice and offer the kind gesture of flowers with a heartwarming card message. Not sure how to start that conversation? No problem. Smile, kindly introduce yourself, explain that it’s Sweetest Day, what it is, and then offer them their gift. This could be a good way to encourage them or potentially be the beautiful beginning to a good friendship. It never hurts to spread the cheer.

Stranger
There are several people we pass every day without ever knowing personally. You pass faces at the grocery store, while out shopping, or while at an event. You see some people just in the passing, such as your mailman, the store clerk, a greeter, etc. Every person has a different path in life, job, personality, and things they may be going through. This is all the more reason why Sweetest Day could be the exact occasion needed to sprinkle some happiness into people’s everyday lives and routines. Who is someone you could share some kindness with a lovely bouquet of flowers? Imagine the sweet surprise upon their face. You will have blessed a stranger and brightened their day. This is what Sweetest Day is all about.

Friends / Family / Lovers
Surprise your besties, lovers, or family with a gorgeous bouquet and shower them with words of affirmation through a special card message. Let them know how much you appreciate them and the things about them that are so special to you. If you’re really close, you could select a bouquet that incorporates their favorite colors or favorite flowers. To make a truly perfect pair, you could easily add some of their favorite candies or treats along with their beautiful bouquet. If they have yet to hear of Sweetest Day before, here is your opportunity to introduce them to the sweet holiday.
