National Boss Day

3 Reasons To Gift Flowers For National Boss Day

Peace
There have always been special qualities that nature has possessed. For instance, the tranquility one finds in a green and vibrant garden under the golden sun, as they hear the sweet silence of nature among the music of birds. Or the magic one feels as they behold a colorfully painted butterfly fluttering its wings as it perches upon beautiful flowers in a garden. Nature can offer a therapeutic effect. The peaceful nature of a flower is something to treasure, a truly priceless gift one can give to another.

As a business leader, one must make several decisions and sort out several details. Like anyone’s position, one finds themselves stressed more times than others or taken by the tasks ahead of them. Offer your boss a lovely arrangement of vibrant flowers to lift their spirits. Every act of kindness makes an impact.

Affirmation and Encouragement
As each of us works hard every day, we desire our work to be recognized and to feel appreciated. We appreciate feeling accomplished. Share your care and kindness by offering your boss affirmation in their efforts through a beautiful bouquet. This is a great way to boost morale and provide one with extra encouragement to press forward.

Delivery

Sweetest Day

Send Someone Sweet A Little Treat

Do you often see someone who goes out of their way to make someone’s day sweeter? Sweetest Day is the perfect day to show your admiration for those who make your life a little better.

What is Sweetest Day?

Originally created by a candy confectioner from Cleveland, Ohio in 1921 to spread joy to those who are often forgotten. Still standing as a day of kindness, Sweetest Day has evolved into recognizing the people we care for.

Who Can I Give Flowers On Sweetest Day?

Unlike Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day is not a solely romantic holiday, nor is it as stressful. Sweetest Day is focused on spreading cheer to anyone around you through a small treat. Gift ideas like flowers accompanied by a little baggy of sweet treats is an excellent way to celebrate Sweetest Day. Today is the day to offer an extra expression of affection to someone close to you!

Co-workers

We work alongside peers regularly and often forget to show care and appreciation for them. Whether you have a work bestie or feel a co-worker could use a good deed or piece of encouragement, a sweet floral arrangement can be a wonderful way to brighten their day. If you want to share words of encouragement or affirmation with them, you can provide a personalized card message in the online ordering process that will be delivered with their flowers.

Neighbors

If you’ve never had formal introductions, now is a perfect opportunity to break the ice and warm their heart. Sometimes we don’t know the ones who live right across or beside us. Don’t be a stranger. Break the ice and offer the kind gesture of flowers with a heartwarming card message. Not sure how to start that conversation? No problem. Smile, kindly introduce yourself, explain that it’s Sweetest Day, and then offer them their gift. This could be a good way to encourage them or potentially be the beautiful beginning of a good friendship. It never hurts to spread the cheer.

Friends / Family / Special Someone

Surprise your besties, that special one, or your family with a gorgeous bouquet and shower them with words of affirmation through a special card message. Let them know how much you appreciate them and the things about them that are so special to you. If you’re really close, you could select a bouquet that incorporates their favorite colors or favorite flowers. To make a truly perfect pair, add some of their favorite candies or treats along with their beautiful bouquet. If they haven’t heard of Sweetest Day before, here is your opportunity to introduce them to this sweet holiday.

Halloween

You know it is telltale signs that Halloween is approaching when you begin seeing the seasonal candy aisle fill up, the air grows cooler, and the leaves begin to change. Your excitement begins to build and start to consider what your fun plans are with friends and family in your free time. However, one quick way to throw a hatchet in your fun is when you’ve realized you should have taken action sooner. You stop on the candy aisle and realize you waited too long and all of your favorite candies you originally planned to include are bought out. The costume you’ve been eyeing and debating to commit to is no longer available. Had you only purchased your desires in advance, then your Halloween festivities would have felt spook-tacular. Don’t make the mistake of waiting until it’s too late. Select and order your fang-tastic Halloween flowers now. Flowers By Melissa has a variety of festive flowers for your exploration. Find the arrangement that meets your theme needs or that you love most. You can easily set your flower’s delivery date in advance to arrive exactly when you want them to.

Thanksgiving (USA)

How far in advance should I order flowers for Thanksgiving?

It is best to order your flowers for Thanksgiving as soon as possible. This can help you secure your desired flowers and ensure their delivery date. Select the flowers you wish, place the order early, and set the delivery date to your anticipated date in the future. This is a smart shopping tactic to beat the other customers to the supply of flowers and avoid order complications caused by low supply during high order volume periods.

The later your order is placed, the riskier your chances are of receiving the exact florals you want. As the time draws close to Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving week, specific flower supplies begin to run low or go out of stock. Once flowers start going out of stock from filling a mass of orders, the shop will heavily be relying upon the flower shipments to come in to restock. If an order is placed too late, this can often result in flower substitutions to an order.

Shop smart and worry less.

Do I order my flowers online or in-person?
This option is up to you! We offer both in-store ordering and the convenience of ordering your flowers online.

When you order online, easily select the flowers of your desire, order, pay, and set a delivery date for your flowers. During your ordering process, you will be able to add any card messages or delivery instructions after you have selected your arrangement.

Feel free to come by Flowers By Melissa and speak with our associates to place your order. We would be happy to assist and answer any questions you may have.

Unable to travel to the shop? No worries. We understand the holiday season can be busy, and some customers will be out of town traveling for different periods. Please feel free to contact us at (231) 753-2005. We would be glad to assist you with any questions regarding the details of your order or other needs.

Christmas

How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

Once you have received your flowers for Christmas, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
Remove the plastic that may have been wrapping your flowers. Once the plastic wrapping is removed, your flowers will be able to breathe. Next, fill a vase with fresh water for your flowers.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Periodically tend to your flowers to help preserve their beauty.

  • For vase arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we recommend providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.
  • For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.

The sooner you place your order, the better. By placing your order and scheduling your future delivery in advance, you secure your selection and prevent placing your order during a time of limited supply. You provide yourself with the assurance that your product choice will be able to be filled when the time comes.

The later your order is placed, the riskier your chances are to receive the exact florals you desire. During an order-dense period, such as Valentine’s Day, specific flower supplies run low or go out of stock, and the shop relies upon a new shipment to arrive. This can often result in flower substitutions to fill an order.
