Floral Arrangements Make the Perfect Hostess Gift
Christmas is over and New Years is just around the corner.
As the end of the year parties wind down and the company heads home, you may find yourself in a situation where you want to thank someone for the a special gift or show your appreciation to someone who hosted the big family gathering. These are just a couple of the reasons that flower shops across the country are especially busy this time of the year.
Why Get Flowers Delivered for the Holidays?
One of the main reasons that people order fresh flowers during the holiday is because they want to give the party host a gift. If, for instance, you want to take sure that your hostess can incorporate your floral gift into the decorations, sending the gift ahead of time allows this. Local florists can often provide a delivery time that meets your needs. Why get flowers delivered this time of the year is also that winter temperatures can be a threat to flowers. Delivery vans, on the other hand, provide temperature control and stands for vases and containers of all size.
The annual spending on flowers in the U.S. Is $26.6 billion. And while 37% of flowers are purchases for others, the remaining 67% of these flowers are purchased by the buyer for the buyer.
Flowers for Weddings Are a Tradition
As often as flowers are used as gifts, they are even more frequently used for weddings. In fact, flowers make up as much as 6% to 7% of the budget for most weddings in America, and as many as 60% of all weddings include a flower girl. In addition to the flowers that the attendants and the bride carry, weddings also include a number of floral arrangements as table decorations for receptions and dances. As the bouquet that the bride throws at the dance to the bouquet that the bride carries down the aisle, flowers are an important part of weddings year round.
Every Holiday Is a Time for Flowers
Valentine’s Day is known as the most popular holiday in America for sending flowers. Christmas, Mother’s Day, and Easter, however, are also popular times. Check your calendar. Who do you need to send flowers to next?
