More Reasons Why You Should Order Valentine’s Day Flowers Early


1. Get Your First Choice

Millions of bouquets are delivered every single year for Valentine’s Day, and this year won’t be any different. As a result, the most popular bouquet designs, colors, and flowers are sure to sell out quickly. To ensure you’re able to get your first choice in floral design, we recommend beating the rush and ordering early.

2. Make Delivery a Breeze

On Valentine’s Day and the days leading up to it, our delivery drivers are at their busiest, which means delivery schedules fill up fast. To take your pick of delivery times, we recommend ordering at least one or two weeks in advance.

3. Enjoy a Valentine’s Day in Full Bloom

Floral bouquets are delivered when the flowers are at their freshest when blooms are still budding. Delivering your flowers about five days early will mean they’ll be at their most beautiful and in full bloom by the time Valentine’s Day arrives.

4. Start the Romance Now

February 14th falls on a Friday, this year, which conveniently makes it the perfect day of the week for starting the celebration with a Monday floral delivery. Your sweetheart will feel extra-special and well-loved when they’re one of the first to receive flowers. Plus, she’ll get to enjoy her bouquet all week long, while anticipating the romance coming at the end of the week.

5. Surprise with a Personalized Design

An incredibly romantic gesture on Valentine’s Day is to include your loved one’s favorite flower in their bouquet or you can create a special bouquet from the same flowers that were used in her bridal bouquet.

We do our best to accommodate every request this time of the year, but with everyone, including suppliers, busy, it can be difficult without enough notice. If you plan to make a special request for your special someone’s Valentine’s Day bouquet, we recommend ordering at least two weeks before your delivery date. Flower suppliers are extremely busy at this time of the year, and it’s not unusual for a supply order to be delayed. If you want to include a unique flower in your Valentine’s Day bouquet, please get your order to us soon. 

This vibrant arrangement includes hot pink roses, purple alstroemeria, light pink miniature carnations, pink waxflower, huckleberry, and dusty miller.
