There are so many reasons to love our local florists, but there’s just no denying that they all work hard to give us some of the best floral experiences out there.
Supporting your local florists can do more good than you’d think, and here are some reasons why!
Believe it or not, a lot of the flowers you see at your neighborhood grocery store aren’t actually grown on U.S. grounds. Most of those blooms are sourced from flower fields in South America, and more often than not, they’re cut almost a week before being shipped off to their destination.
Local florists provide stems that are cut-to-order, ensuring a longer vase life and some of the freshest blooms in the market.
Supporting Local Businesses
It almost goes without saying that purchasing from local florists will help them stay in business as well as help the local economy overall. On top of that, local businesses add some character to the community, giving people the variety they need.
When you order flowers from local florists, you’re given an opportunity to really know what you’re buying and who you’re buying from. You can even communicate with your florist directly so they’re aware of what they need to prepare for the occasion.
Depending on what your needs are, they can even customize arrangements. All-in-all, there’s just more flexibility when it comes to relying on a local florist!
Flexible Delivery Options
Flower delivery can be tricky, especially when last-minute plans come up. There’s just no guarantee of exactly when your arrangement will be received, and that can be tricky when you need something in just a few hours or so.
Luckily, local florists usually have the capacity to prepare an arrangement just in time for that birthday party, baby shower, or almost any other occasion.
Buying flowers locally can actually mean that there are less chances of bringing home a bouquet that has been exposed to harsh chemicals. You are also more likely supporting sustainable labor practices when it comes to gathering and distributing these blooms.
Local florists deserve all the recognition they can get, which is why The Bouqs Co. wants to make that happen while also spreading a whole lot of #BouqLove. We love partnering with local florists to ensure that you can truly have the best floral experience.
