Love Waits for No One - Valentine's Day is Monday Feb 14!
Well, Flowers From The Rainflorist have spent the last two months ordering Valentine's Day vases and candy and balloons and bears...you name it...it now it has begun to arrive.... carton after carton! Our UPS guys are beginning to look at us cross-eyed. We have red and pink and clear vases in round, square, tall and short, wide and skinny! Our bears are white and brown, some sing, some just look ready for their new homes all dressed up with pretty bows and waiting.
Now the candy is another story...with our crowd, we tend to have to lock it up...anyone who loves chocolate understands that and when you have Godiva Chocolates in truffles and assortments in four piece, 8 piece and 19 piece selections, you are never without a choice...tastings are a tough job, but you know...someone has to do it!
Right after Christmas we started pre-booking with the farms in South America and Holland, all of our roses, and lily's, lizianthus, tulips and carnations and orchids...the list is long! We have to pre-book as Valentine's Day flower sales are all based on supply and demand....so we try to book ahead with the farms so that we have enough for our customers. In the past few years, the farms have been selling a lot of flowers to Europe where flowers play an even more important role to people. .Russia buys a lot of flowers and they spend a lot more money per household than we do here in our country. This year the economy in SA has been hit hard so the supply is less than we have seen in the past years. Many farms have closed or have dug up crops in order to plant vegetables to feed their people and to sell. So we try to plan ahead. Everyone thinks it's easy to be a florist because it's "just about flowers"....but we deal with brokers, farms , importers, transporters and a slew of others everyday just to get the flowers here. There is never a dull day at the shop.
Here's a sampling of one of our pink rose Selections called "Romance in Ft. Lauderdale"......order before the 11th and we'll add one of our baby bears for free!
