Hot Tips for Valentine's Day Ordering

Blog-Header-Template (5)-2
With Valentine's Day just over a month away, we asked some of our Sales Reps to give us some hot tips to pass along to help make the holiday & ordering process as smooth as possible for everyone! It's a busy, stressful time of year for all parties involved, so we hope that this advice helps!

  • Do a mock-up of some special designs you would like to feature for Valentine's Day. Try to base some designs around any special deals and bulk ordering through your Sales Rep. Next, take amazing pictures and feature them on social media. Have fun with it and even poll your followers to see what trends, colors, and vessels they love.

  • Review last year's purchases. Your past invoices can be found on your account on here. (Reach out to your Sales Rep if you need help with this). If you are seeing an increase in shop orders, then up your prebooks accordingly.

  • Review any notes made from the previous year on what was successful and what things you are going to change. Be sure to document all your changes for next year!

We are offering amazing deals on great product that our buying teams have carefully curated for you. Take advantage of these because, in the long run, it's going to increase your profit and keep you on track!
Trust me, the relief you will get when you hand over your order to your Sales Rep is unmeasurable. It's so important to have mental clarity going into a big floral holiday like Valentine's Day. 
  • Get your order in as early as possible

  • When shipping product, allow an extra day in case of any shipping delays. For this year it is suggested to ship out on Monday 2/7 or Tuesday 2/8!



  • Saturday will be a big day with walk-ins and deliveries. Sunday however is a different story because it is Super Bowl Sunday. We predict that men will probably not be thinking about Valentine's Day on Super Bowl Sunday and will wake from their hangovers on Monday to realize they've forgotten about the holiday, and then scramble to the flower shop for last-minute goodies.  Nonetheless, there are four days of opportunities to sell flowers this year! 
  • If any product arrives damaged or unusable, please make sure to send over pictures of the bad product so we can either work on a refund or replacement

  • If any product that is a box lot arrives damaged or unusable, please make sure to send pictures of the bad product along with a picture of the label of the box they came out of. 



Thank you to our lovely Sales Reps Val McNichols & Laura London for these invaluable tips. And of course, never hesitate to reach out to us or your own Rep with any questions! 
We'll leave you with this sweet little number by Kelly Pulls for a some V-Day inspiration...
