How to Save Money on Future Valentine's Day Flowers

Everyone likes to save a little money here and there and we thought we'd share some insight on how you can save some money and time on future Valentine's Day flowers!

Order your flowers early!
Ordering your flowers early allows florists to be prepared ahead of the big day by not only making sure flowers for your order will be available but that they will be available for pick up and/or delivery at times that are convenient for you! Most florists reserve their flowers way in advance of the holiday, thus allowing them to purchase a larger selection of flowers at better prices than they would if they were getting their flowers at the last minute. Hence, most florists are willing to give you a discount if you order in advance!

Try something different!
Red roses are in highest demand during the Valentine's Day weekend. Florists usually acquire flowers at higher costs during this time and red roses are often acquired at 500-700% above the average cost. It's a simple supply and demand situation. To save money and be creative, why not gift flowers such as gerber daisies or tulips or calla lilies? We recommend that you call your local florist a week in advance and ask about their specials. They are sure to lead you in the right direction!

Pick up your flowers!
As you can only imagine, delivery schedules are hectic during this period -- especially on Valentine's Day! Florists charge anywhere from $12-20 for deliveries, so why not order your flowers in advance and pick them up? Florists usually have extended hours during the holiday so make sure you call ahead and know their hours!

Celebrate early or after Valentine's Day!
If you are away for the actual holiday, why not celebrate early or after the holiday? Florists are less busy leading up to the holiday or days after the holiday. You might not have the best selections after the holiday, but you are sure to get better deals than on the actual day!

Father-Daughter Dances

It must be the season for father-daughter dances because for the past three weeks, we have received several requests for corsages to be designed for young ladies for their dates with their dads. How fun to be able to spend an evening of dancing and dining with your dad in your prettiest dress!? Whether your date is 5 or 15 years old, we design a variety of corsages most appropriate for your date and her taste!

Remember that flowers don't always have to be worn on the wrist, too! You can order a hairpiece for your date if she likes to dress up her hair. Does she like to carry purses everywhere she goes? How about a pomander for her to carry for the special evening? Whatever her fashion taste is, we can design the most perfect flower gift for your date! Call or email us today!

91% of Men Give Flowers to Their Loved Ones on Valentine's Day!

A recent survey conducted by Luth Research shows that 91% of men who give flowers to their significant other on Valentine's Day do so to show their love to that special someone in their lives, most with no other motives or strings attached. More than 75% of men have given flowers for Valentine's Day in the past two years. Of those men giving flowers to their significant other, nine in ten primarily intend to express their love (91%), while 26% said they give flowers to avoid disappointing the person, and 16% said to avoid being in the dog house. Other findings from the study reveal that two-thirds of men purchasing flowers for Valentine's Day do so to send flowers to their significant other, and a third of men do so to send flowers to their mothers. (Awww, so sweet!) Additionally, besides choosing which flowers to buy, writing the card message to go with the flowers is the process that men spend the most time on – 60% and 15% respectively.

Let Petals & Paper help you create the most fabulous floral designs for your loved ones this Valentine's Day!
