Here at Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts, we like to think that every day is Valentine’s Day. After all, you can send a beautiful bouquet to your special someone any time of the year.

Whether you’re a hopeless romantic who likes to go all out or you’re more of a smooth operator who likes to keep your cool, there’s no escaping cupid this time around. You’ll want to pick up some flowers for your special someone on Valentine’s Day. Say what you want about it, but it’s that one time of the year when florists all over the city run out of flowers. If you don’t want to end up with the last pity bouquet, you need to make sure to place your order in advance.

But aside from ordering your flower arrangement in advance, how do you win on Valentine’s Day? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Leave it all to the master

Here’s what you need to know about floral arrangements. They’re not just flowers simply bunched together; they’re living works of art. And florists go through years of training to master this art. Avoid telling your florist how to do their job. Just tell them what you want and let them design you the perfect masterpiece. If you’re working with a limited budget, let them know beforehand. They will appreciate your honesty and will use flowers that have multiple blooms on one stem to help maximize the size of the design thereby creating more bang for your buck.

Add an element of surprise

Contrary to popular belief, roses aren’t the only flowers that you can give on Valentine’s Day. There are other blooms that will show that you put careful thought into your flower arrangement. Exotic flowers like anthuriums, orchids, and birds of paradise are not typical choices, but they’re a great way to show your special lady that you’re all about surprising her on this holiday. Also,a mixed garden flower arrangement will help you save money to boot!

Avoid tacky flowers

Most men seem to think that the way to a woman’s heart is bright, high contrast bouquets. And while they can be quite dramatic, some women prefer subtle arrangements. Don’t hesitate to ask your florist for flower suggestions that will make for a classic bouquet. Stick to neutral  shades that compliment each other and leave out the baby’s breath (unless that is one of her favorite accent flowers). Use different types of foliage to make your floral arrangement more lush.

Coordination is key

Coordinating with your florist is important if you want your flowers get to your special lady on time. Florists design and deliver their orders in the sequence that they are we receive them so it is best to order early to ensure that your arrangement is sure to go out early in the day. We here at Fiesta Flowers, Plants & Gifts guarantee business deliveries by 5pm and residential deliveries by 7pm. We also offer a VIP delivery option for an additional fee that pushes your order to the front of the line.

Don’t forget the personalized note

Nothing says you care like a personalized note with your flower arrangement. Whether it’s a love poem or a short love letter, take this chance to tell your significant other how much she means to you in writing.
