Mother's Day is just around the corner, and if you're planning to send flowers to your mom, it's time to start thinking about it. Here are some tips to make sure you get the best selection and quality of flowers.
Order Early and Request an Earlier Delivery Date
Ordering early is the best way to ensure that you get the best selection of flowers. The closer you get to Mother's Day, the narrower the selection becomes. So, it's always a good idea to order as early as possible. Also, requesting an earlier delivery date in the week can help you get the freshest and most beautiful blooms. It gives the florist time to find the recipient and protect the quality of the product.
Communicate Your Flower Preferences
If you have a specific flower in mind for your arrangement, let the florist know in advance. This way, they can put some aside for your order, and you can get the perfect bouquet for your mom. Communication is key to getting what you want, so make sure to communicate your preferences clearly.
Take Advantage of our 7-Day Guarantee
If you're not satisfied with the arrangement or there is any issue with it, you can return it within seven days, and we will make you a new one. A phone call to let us know and discuss the best time to do so is appreciated, as we may not immediately have the flowers needed to recreate your bouquet on hand.
Consider BloomClub by The BloomBox
BloomClub is a flower subscription service that offers a flexible price point and schedule, making it perfect for letting anyone know that you are thinking about them all year long. You can even tailor it for yearly events such as birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays like Mother's Day. With BloomClub, you or your loved one can enjoy beautiful blooms all year round.
Go with a Local Florist
We can't stress this enough; when it comes to ordering flowers, it's always a good idea to go with a local florist. Order gatherers are call centers that trick you into thinking they physically exist wherever you are trying to send flowers. They often lure you in with heavily discounted selections on their websites, but their service fees and shipping costs make the price the same or more than local florists. Additionally, the flowers may be shipped in a box via a courier that has no idea the product is fragile and susceptible to temperature changes. Their policy is never to refund, ever, even if they have no way to deliver to the requested address. Ordering from a local florist ensures that you get fresh, beautiful blooms delivered by a trusted professional. If you are sending to another city, contact your local florist first. They will either take your order and forward it on to a professional florist they trust, or give you a trusted florist's contact information in your preferred delivery city directly.

In conclusion, these tips can help you get the perfect bouquet for your mom this Mother's Day. Ordering early, communicating your flower preferences, taking advantage of the florist's guarantee, considering BloomClub, and going with a local florist are all ways to ensure that you get the best selection and quality of flowers for your loved one.
