A Valentine’s Day Memo

Valentines Day is only a month away and happens to be the busiest time of the year for every flower shop. So if you are considering sending flowers to your significant other on Valentine’s Day (which you should), The smartest thing to do is to order your flowers as soon as possible. Yes, even a month away, it is best to place your order now!

Remember, the sooner you order, the florist will prioritize your order and guarantee the bouquet of flowers that you want. No matter what, you or anyone else in this world, don’t want to receive dead flowers or old flowers. You also don’t want to get alternative flowers because the florist ran out of the flowers that you did so much research to get for your loved ones. Keeping all this in mind, order your Valentine’s Day flower bouquet ASAP.

Another important fact to remember is, don’t order your flowers from a deceptive online website that is a wire service such as FTD, Teleflora , 1800 Flowers , Pro flowers, etc. You will be excited about their cheap prices and stunning photogenic flower bouquets, but most likely, you will not receive the flower arrangement that you saw on their website, because all the pictures are professionally photographed & edited to feed your eyes. These online flower services are just a call center who sends out your orders to local florists in your area with only 70% of the money you spend on a bouquet, and I am telling you right now as a florist, those online flower services have no idea what flower inventory a local flower shop has for that day. Also, the customer always spend more money for the same arrangement. The average cost of service fees range from $10-$20.

For example, at our shop, you will spend $81 on a dozen red roses, with tax and delivery. Sadly for these networks, you would spend at least $91 after the service fees, and then only 30% of the $81 order will be sent to the florist, leaving you with lesser of quality.
Also, when a local florist in your area gets your order and they don’t have the exact flowers or colors, local florists have only one option! That is to substitute those flowers with something they have in stock for that day. So, the florists receive 30% funds for the order and may not have the exact flowers because everything is placed online, and not communicated with the delivering florist to see what is in stock.

Order your flowers from your local florist. Luckily for you, we are a local florist! A florist you can physically walk into to see their collection of flowers. We will provide you the best service and freshest flowers at a great deal. Now if you want to find us in Riverside, you can type Riverside Bouquet Florist in online search engines like Google, Yelp, Yahoo. Ordering flowers from Riverside Bouquet Florist ensures quality, beauty, and your own satisfactory services. If you go onto Riverside Bouquet Florist website because you can’t come in physically, you will see pictures of arrangements we make daily.

Also to ensure time and day of the delivery, since this year Valentine’s Day falls on Tuesday, florists will be busy delivering flowers during office hours. So pre-order as soon as possible so she can receive her flowers and feel as beautiful as she is. Lets celebrate this beautiful day that stands for the greatest blessings and emotion of all. LOVE!!! So hurry and get your orders in for Valentine’s day Flowers !!

Choosing A Great Florist

Through many conversations, we’ve come to find the young generation is buying flower arrangements less and less. On top of that, if they do, they are purchasing from stores such as Vons or Trader Joes, which do not supply as personal arrangements as a florist would. It is true, only 14,000 Florists remain in the United States, and with aging technology and increasing retailers, the number is decreasing monthly.

The problem the younger generation presents is their knowledge of the floral world is diminishing. Chivalry was a staple for the floral world. Young men were constantly buying a dozen wrapped roses to hand to their lucky lady. Different arrangements were flying out of the door to please an unsuspecting woman. Today, when young men stroll in, they are often confused on the meaning of flowers and their significance. Today, as new customers slide in, floral etiquetteimg_7086 is at an all-time low. This is where Riverside Bouquet Florist comes in!

Finding a great florist is more than just buying flowers at a moments whim, as you would do at large retailers. Finding a florist should be personal, like getting a haircut. Florists are there to educate you of the do’s and don’ts of purchasing flowers. Our job is to help your loved one marvel at the excitement of receiving a beautiful arrangement. Our delivery driver notes when many young women receive flowers, they often say, “I’ve never received flowers before!” The entire work space around them is in awe and they are the center of attention. A job well done from the sender!

Flowers are too important to be limited to factory-like designs at large retailers. The quality of flowers at flower shops are at times different, there are different types of roses – some are fuller and last longer, others die faster and don’t add as much vibrance to the arrangement. Florists carry a variety of flowers, and flowers have different meanings. Also, a florist is able to listen and comply with the desires of a beautiful finished and polished result.

We here at Riverside Bouquet Florist have the ability to build a relationship with out customers. No matter the occasion, communication is key to getting what you want. If you want specific flowers or colors, we can accommodate those needs. If you want something simple, contemporary, or fanciful, we can accommodate those needs. Our customers come back year after year, no matter the occasion. And we believe it is because we take the time to build a relationship. Large retailers are unable to do so, and in return, the floral arrangements don’t seems as personal or special as they may have used to be.

We encourage you to stop by at 6732 Magnolia Ave Riverside, Ca. and give us the opportunity to make a loved one smile. Our hands are ready and our ears are open!
