Ordering Flowers for Valentine’s Day

It’s always nice to hear the words “I love you” but to actually show how much you love a person really warms the heart. Your partner knows that you love them but actions…aka gifts… speak louder than words!

Waiting till the last minute to place your order for Valentine’s Day is not recommended as this is the busiest day of the year for all flower shops. It’s best to always call early-not just for Valentine’s Day either-when ordering your flowers. This gives the florist enough time to get the flowers in stock and have your order prepared and delivered on time.

Whether it’s chocolates, balloons, or teddy bears, we have it all. When ordering your flowers for Valentine’s Day don’t forget about all our add-ons!

We have stuffed animals in all sizes, shapes and colours. This way your “honey” will have something after the flowers are gone.

Everyone Loves Chocolate! Here at Brant Florist we can add a half pound box of Walker’s Chocolates to your order to really show them how you feel. And hopefully they will share

Roses are the language of love… but remember there are as many languages out there as there are types of flowers. The key is to know what “language” your loved one speaks.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Great Valentine’s Day Flower Ordering Tips

The FTD Expressions of Love Bouquet

Represents all the love and passion in your heart

Valentine’s Day will be here in a flash. Mark Thursday February 14thon your calendar and take advantage of these Valentine’s flower ordering tips:

  1. Order Valentine’s Day flowers early.  Waiting until February 14th to order flowers may sink hearts.  Although we try, florists can’t always accommodate last minute orders. Good hearted but last minute cupids may be out of luck. Sometimes florists run out of flowers and can’t accommodate unplanned delivery requests. Place your order early for Feb. 14 delivery.
  2. Roses and more! Although roses traditionally symbolize love and are a favorite for sweethearts on Valentine’s Day, be sure to select flowers that your sweetie enjoys. Other beautiful Valentine’s Day flowers include: tulips, lilies, gerbera daisies, orchids, callas, hydrangeas and carnations!
  3. The FTD Color Your Day With Happiness Bouquet

    Valentine flower colors. Red is the most popular valentine color but your sweetheart may march to her own drum. Be sure to select flowers in the color that she prefers. Other popular Valentine Day color options include: pastel shades like soft yellows, peaches and warm pinks, purples, oranges, hot pinks, creamy whites and ivory, rich yellow tones and even 2013’s color of the year, emerald green!
  4. Spring for an extra special add-on. Valentine’s flowers will pack even greater wow appeal with a little something extra. We’re thinking a cute plush teddy, a fun-loving balloon or some decadent chocolates to share.    
  5. Have Valentine’s flowers delivered to work. Surprise your sweetheart by having Valentine’s flowers delivered to the workplace.  Lots of co-workers will comment on your thoughtfulness and you’ll get brownie points at home!

Although it may only feel like yesterday that Christmas decorations were packed away and New Year’s resolutions were made, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! This year cupid will cast his arrow on Tuesday, February 14th, so mark the date and plan ahead. If there’s a chance that you’re one of those good intentioned souls that procrastinates, then simply place your Valentine’s Day flower orders early and breathe easy. Consider these timely cupid approved tips on sending and selecting perfect Valentine’s Day flowers.

For great flower choices, inspiration and outstanding service, speak with a real florist. Whether you order Valentine’s Day flowers at Brant Florist or visit us personally at our shop on Brant Street, rest assured that when you plan ahead, your hand designed Valentine’s Day flowers will be hand delivered same-day for orders in Canada and the USA and next day for international orders.

Valentine’s Day is a florist’s busiest day. We do our best to anticipate order volumes but occasionally last minute orders cannot be filled. A florist can run out of fresh flowers and unfortunately, time. To avoid disappointment visit, call-in or order your Valentine’s flowers on-line several days in advance of February 14th . And although Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, there is no reason why you couldn’t surprise your sweetheart with a delivery of beautiful, fresh flowers early. Send a stunning Valentine’s Day bouquet to her work on the Friday before Valentine’s Day with a note attached promising a romantic weekend and watch what happens when she arrives home!

Spirited Orchid Bouquet makes for a lovely and unexpected Valentine's Day Gift

Just in case you think Valentine’s Day flowers are reserved for sweethearts only, we are here to tell you that they are not. While typically men will send Valentine’s flowers as a romantic gift, many women will send a cheery Valentine’s bouquet or arrangement to Mom, a sibling, grandparent or good friend to show that they care! How unexpected and lovely! And, don’t forget the men in your life. Real men do like flowers and a handsome potted orchid may be ideal.

If you are wondering what type of flowers to send, think outside the box. The choices are endless. Men will typically order classic long-stemmed red roses for their sweetheart but there are no rules that say you have to send red roses or even roses at all! Know the likes of your recipient and select a floral gift that fits her/his likes and personality. Mom may be over the moon with a sweet bouquet of multi-colored Valentine’s tulips and your honey may love roses but vibrant orange ones may be the color that makes her heart skip a beat!

In addition to flowers, add-ons of chocolate, an adorable stuffed bear and even a fun balloon with a message can make a thoughtful bouquet of Valentine’s Day flowers all the more impactful. Be sure to talk to a professional florist to assist you with your Valentine’s Day floral gift needs. Whether a traditional dozen of long stemmed red roses are just right or perhaps you have a custom request in mind, a real florist will be able to personally assist with all of your requests.
