Loving Valentine’s Day

Although the concept of Valentine’s Day is to ensure people feel loved, it is sometimes impossible to get caught up in comparing how much you are loved when you look at what others are sending or receiving.

Like much of our lives these days, our Valentine’s Day gifts are yet another opportunity to show others how well we are doing, or how much we are admired…As a result, sometimes Valentine’s Day can be a bit of a downer for some. Valentine’s Day can be both a day of celebration and a day of commiseration, a day full of hope, and a day full of disappointment.  BUT Valentine’s Day does provide the perfect opportunity to let those around you know that you love them, romantically, or otherwise.

Whether you are able to send a single rose, or 100 roses to the object of your affection, remember that the mere fact that you have taken the time to organise your flower delivery will win you points. Write a heartfelt card message to accompany your fresh flowers, BONUS POINTS to you!!! If you have booked a favourite restaurant, a special place for you as a couple, or created a menu that you will execute in the kitchen yourself…well, you are going to have a hard time topping this next year  🤣 Pace yourself!

We’ve created a Valentine’s Day menu that has something for everyone. All the Floral arrangements are available for delivery throughout our local Carlingford area as well as Greater Sydney. We offer a range of gifts from simple boxed single roses, to elaborate floral arrangements of long stemmed red roses, or mixed flowers too.

High School aged children often like to organise single flowers for their circle of friends, and in this case, we would recommend something bright and fun rather than a rose- perhaps a gerbera?

In my experience, people don’t struggle too much with choosing flowers on Valentine’s Day. There is a level of expectation that they will get red roses in some form or another. IF their partner has let it be known that red roses are not going to cut it, then they are also pretty sure on what will. The area most people have difficulty with is those all important heartfelt messages written inside the card. You are not alone if you are struggling to find the words you need to express yourself. For this reason, we have previously written a blog post with some inspiration for your card messages – click here to check it out 

Remember, if you have something special in mind, do not hesitate to speak to one of our floral designers on the phone on 02 9871 1666 or come in store and put something together with us.

Our 5 Tips For Getting Flowers Delivered on Valentine’s Day

I can hardly believe that we have already finished the first month of the new year already. And every florist in the world knows that means one thing….Valentine’s day is less than a fortnight away. Yikes!

If you don’t live under a rock, you would know that February = Valentine’s Day. And whether you celebrate or commiserate on February 14th, one question remains, who doesn’t love the feeling of being loved?

Now, there are certainly some hurdles in the quest to find love….BUT we want to ensure that ordering flowers for your beloved isn’t one of them.

Here are our 5 tips to get you on the right track for lurve 😍

  1. Provide the correct address.

Sounds simple right, but believe it or not, this is where most problems occur. Provide your florist with the correct company name, and full street address, including the unit or suite number, and even the floor that the recipient works on. While the courier may not be able to hand deliver in some buildings for security reasons, this will ensure the flower delivery is made in a timely fashion internally.

Similarly, home address deliveries will require street names, numbers and apartment numbers if applicable. Do not provide descriptions of how to get there in lieu of this information.

Courier delivering fresh flowers
Florist with Flowers will be making deliveries all day on Valentine’s Day. Please ensure you provide the recipients full name and address to ensure the arrangement ends up in the right hands.

2. Provide the recipients full name

Again, this probably sounds obvious but on many occasions, secret admirers do not have the correct details for their delivery. This results in deliveries being left unclaimed or returned. First names alone are usually not adequate either if you are delivering to a business. If you want to make someone feel special make sure you have all their details so we can make sure our gorgeous arrangement ends up in the right hands. Alternatively, have you thought about hand delivering something yourself? Sure, it requires some bravery, but what a great way to start a conversation with the object of your affection.

Single red roses are the perfect gift for a secret admirer
Single red roses are an incredibly romantic gesture, especially if you are admiring someone from afar.

3. Be realistic with your expectations on delivery times

We understand that your delivery is the most important delivery to you, but please understand that every single customer feels this way…on everyday of the year. The difference with Valentine’s Day is that we have such a high volume of orders that our delivery runs have to be organised in a logical fashion. For this reason we are unable to promise specific time frames. What we can do is ensure all business deliveries are made within business hours (9am-5pm) and home deliveries will be made throughout the whole day according to area/region. As your local Carlingford Florist we will be organising several delivery runs in the area, but will also deliver flowers throughout Greater Sydney. We can also assist with interstate and international flower deliveries.

4. Be guided by your professional florist

There is nothing like fresh roses on Valentine’s Day, however if you are concerned about the longevity of your blooms, or want something a bit different, talk to your florist. Tropical blooms are a unique choice but will last well in hot and humid conditions as will native blooms.

Don’t want to send red roses as you feel like that may make too big of a statement? Did you know that different colours of roses symbolises different feelings? Your florist will be able to guide you in the best way to express yourself using the language of flowers.

Try ordering something unique and long lasting for Valentine's Day

5. Order online or in store ahead of time.

Ordering two weeks in advance will not guarantee you a 7am delivery with bonus singing telegram, however it will ensure you will avoid disappointment by missing our delivery cut offs. We have extra drivers on for the large volume of deliveries however they still have their limitations. For this reason we do have to restrict the amount of deliveries we take on to ensure we can complete our service.

Why not check out our Valentine’s Day menu now, and tick flowers ✅ off your list straight away? You can check it out here.

Common Mistakes to Avoid in Choosing an Online Service to Deliver Flowers

Most people would agree that there is no better way to show someone you care than to send them flowers.

 

It is a timeless tradition to send out flowers on Valentine’s day or at times when you wish to share your thoughts with others. Whatever the occasion, flowers express care and concern in a way words never could.

 

Thanks to the world wide web, it has become so much easier to buy and deliver flowers to people we care about no matter where they are in the country.  Still, there are a couple of things you need to be mindful of if only to ensure that everything turns out as you intended.

Choosing a florist – beyond the convenience and affordable prices

Yes, buying flowers from a florist online is a lot more convenient than having to visit a flower shop yourself and arrange for delivery. Online stores also tend to offer better deals than brick and mortar stores. Of course, things can still go wrong, and it’s important to make sure you do not run into any unpleasant surprises along the way.

 

Say for instance you have spent money online making arrangements to have birthday party flowers in North Ryde delivered. There are common mistakes that you would want to avoid to make sure that fresh flowers are delivered on time and  meets your full satisfaction.

Image of a Happy woman holding symbol of love heart and flowers

Here are some mistakes people often make when placing an order with a flower delivery service

 

Not checking the delivery address for errors before purchasing

It is an easy mistake to make and one that people often overlook resulting in the florist being unable to deliver the flowers on time. After all, how can you expect the flowers to reach the recipient if the delivery address is incorrect or incomplete? You would do well to carefully check whether you have correctly typed your address before hitting the “buy” button. Even the smallest mistakes in the delivery address can be the cause of much delay.

 

No means of tracking delivery

All too often, people do not bother doing some research on the products or services that they buy online. In the case of a flower delivery service, it would be helpful to have a means of tracking the delivery of your order from the moment you confirm your purchase up to the point where the flowers get delivered to the recipient. Just knowing where the flowers are at any given time. This gives you ample opportunity to check with the florist and work on any issues that may hinder timely delivery.

 

Not checking for service guarantees

 

Are you looking for a reputed flower delivery business with an excellent reputation for quality and dependable service? It is always best to work with a  reliable  service provider like “Florist with Flowers” who offer a money-back guarantee should the unexpected happen. Phone us today on  (02) 9871 1666 to make the necessary arrangements — you will find that we know just how important the flower delivery is to you and  that we are prepared to go above and beyond to make sure that fresh flowers are delivered on time looking fresh and beautiful.

The Day That Florists Have Their Picnic

Did you receive flowers in the last week? On Tuesday, we undertook a mammoth task, delivering love notes and gifts throughout Sydney, on one of the biggest days on the florist calendar. Many of us drag our tired and weary bones back into work again the next day, often to shops that have very little left to sell, or worse, we are forced to set the dreaded alarm yet again and restock the shop with fresh blooms. We are totally thankful for a sell out of roses for sure, everyone knows there is very few roses being sold in the days following Valentine’s Day but…… we are only half committed to filling the shop to the brims again when we really would prefer to hit snooze. As Valentine’s day fell on a Tuesday this year, that probably means for many of us we have started our day at 3am three days running (or worse).

picnic 3

 

Thousands of roses have been stripped, and when we have temporarily misplaced (read; permanently lost) our trusty rose de-thorners somewhere in the rose leaf debris 1 metre deep underfoot, we have been forced to strip them by hand bar the assistance of a little cellophane. Ouchy. Our tired, aching and often infected hands are calloused, red, dry and split. They sting, and are inflamed.

For florists like us though, who are set up in a retail precinct or mall, the next day is business as usual after all, their are birthdays, anniversaries, parties and funerals to attend to. The shop opens on time, and the Valentine’s Day marketing displays are immediately pulled down, and the shop is redressed for a new day. The day after such a big occasion will be filled with thorough shop cleanse, re-organising the displays and re-stocking the shelves and, we will all handle our share of complaints. It is a hard day when you are running on empty.

picnic 4

 

Many industries have a Picnic Day, a special day off for those industry members. The idea behind it is to give employees with a common interest and goal the opportunity to get together in a social setting to promote unity. I know the hospital system observes Picnic Day, as do hairdressers, butchers and other trades. I found a digital copy of an archived newspaper, showing the Hairdressers Picnic Day from the Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 – 1957), Friday 14 February 1930, page 10;

picnic 1

I think that there is some flexibility in the day that the industry chooses to observe as their Picnic Day. I have noticed several hairdressers naming Melbourne Cup day as their chosen day.  With this in mind, I think we should consider naming our own day. Given the hours of work florists have to put in to barely survive Valentines Day, I think it seems pretty fitting, that February 15th be named Florist Picnic Day.  We certainly work through the night in the evening(s) before hand, and with one day of true rest, I’m sure we could all better handle the highs and lows that come in the retail world.

So, who’s with me? Let’s start a revolution!!

Who is Your Love Guru?

Valentine’s Day is a day that is about celebrating love; the love you have, the love you had, or perhaps the love you hope for. There is no perfect love, but every love is perfect in it’s own way, and as such, each love should be celebrated.

There is no recipe for success when selecting Valentine’s Day gifts. Making the right choice will depend on your listening skills and how attentive you are to your partner. As there is no ‘one size fit’s all’ solution, I suggest you choose your own love spirit to help guide your way.

Classic Valentino

spirit 3

For traditional romantics, Valentine’s Day requires a few key elements;

  1. A Red Rose delivery- probably a dozen, generally long stemmed and preferably delivered to work! Perhaps this box of roses will fit the bill?
  2. Jewelry gift
  3. Dinner reservation; perhaps French, Italian or Seafood.

Nothing says romance than a dinner date that starts Champagne and ends with Souffle right? Valentine’s Day dining for hardcore fanatics should be fancy and fine. This means you will need to be organised so you don’t miss out on the venue of choice, or the table with the view!

Precious Parvati

spirit 2

If your lover favours vibrant and/or tropical colourings, then a Bollywood inspired blend of blooms is probably more suitable like Beaming Beauty. Suitable flower choices could be; Orchids, Heliconias, Lotus, Water lilies,  Gingers, Anthuriums and Siam Tulips. Tropical blooms tend to weather the heat and humidity of a Sydney Summer better than softer, garden style blooms, as it is similar to their natural environment. This means that a bouquet with these ingredients will have a longer vase life- keeping you in the good books for longer!

Team your beautiful bouquet with a fun night eating with your hands at your favourite Indian or Sri Lankan restaurant. And finish the evening getting matching tattoos (Henna of course)!

Quirkier gift ideas for this love spirit could include; essential oils,  incense sticks or semi precious stones for attracting love and healing.

Mighty Aphrodite

spirit 4

Sensual personalities may enjoy a mixture of tradition and creativity. They are open to new experiences, but like some classic elements also. Why not create a mixed bouquet of blooms that includes a cluster of romantic roses, but uses a rich blend of complementary colours. Something like Bold Charm from our menu would be perfect

Take your Aphrodite to a dinner date with a difference sampling Mexican street food, sipping Sangria and dancing the night away.

Massage oil could make an interesting gift, or maybe a one on one dance lesson.

Pure Cupid

spirit 1

Some personalities are naturally attracted to neutral aesthetics; pure whites, creams, browns and greens. Whether you choose pure white roses, or a selection of natives is up to you.   Neutral colour tones go with every decor, which takes the stress out if you don’t know what kind of decorating style the recipient has. White roses would be a great choice if you are an engaged couple, or newly married. Check out White Rose Love Affair.  Alternatively, for more rustic charm choose a selection of wildflowers.

Stuck for date ideas? Maybe brunch at an Organic Cafe, or a picnic in the national park would suit this Valentine.

Knowing who you are buying for means you will know what kind of gift they will appreciate. If none of the above love spirits sound quite right, feel free to ring our team to discuss your ideas

Happy loving,

How Much Do You Love Me?

With Valentines Day less than two weeks away I suppose it is time we all get our thinking caps on and start planning our romantic gesture for the year! For many, Valentine’s Day is the one and only time they will consider sending flowers, so I guess it only makes sense that they say what they mean, and mean what they say!

Traditionally red roses are sent at Valentine’s Day, and they are certainly a favourite choice for expressing your undying love all year round too but have you ever stopped to consider what you may be saying unknowingly by the number of roses you choose to send?

Most Valentine’s Day catalogues generally contain the choice of a single rose, half a dozen, a dozen and 2 dozen. They remain the firm favourites. Most popular without a doubt is to send one dozen roses at Valentine’s Day, a simple statement of “Be Mine”but is there is something else you would like to say?

rose 1

The meaning of how many roses are in a bouquet;

Single rose- Love at first sight

2 Roses- Reciprocated love, a love shared by both parties

3 roses- Three little words; I Love you

6 roses- I’m devoted to you, and I want to be yours

7 Roses- Infatuation

9 Roses- Eternal love; Be mine forever

10 Roses- Admiration; You are perfect

11 Roses- You are the most important person to me

12 Roses- Be Mine

rose 2
Florist with Flowers product: Wild About Roses

Want to send more than one dozen roses? Tread carefully now as sometimes bigger is not better; 15 Roses is an apology, so avoid sending this message to your loved one as you may arouse suspicion unnecessarily.

13 Roses- A message perfect for a secret admirer

15 Roses- I’m sorry, please forgive me

20 Roses- I’m intrigued by you

21 Roses- I’m dedicated to you

Once you hit 2 dozen roses the bouquet is sure to be a show stopper. How much of a statement you wish to make is up to you. Do you have something special to say? Choosing a larger bouquet can certainly convey some very sweet sentiments, and there are occasions that call for something truly stupendous, but remember if you wallet doesn’t allow you to send 999 Roses, you can express yourself in a carefully constructed card message. We  have some inspiration for card messages here if you are struggling to put the words together.

roses 3
Florist With Flowers: Cluster of Red Roses

24 Roses- I’m yours, I just can’t stop thinking about you. (The significance of the number of roses is representative of the 24 hours of the day)

25 Roses- Congratulations 

36 Roses- I cherish the romantic times we have shared together

40 Roses- I love you truly

50 Roses- My love for you is unconditional and has no limits

99 Roses- I will love you forever

100 Roses- I want to grow old with you

101 Roses- You are my one and only

108 Roses- Marry me!
