Did you know that every florist in BloomNation’s floral marketplace is a local florist? This may seem odd to those who are used to placing orders through large national companies who act as middlemen between you and your florist. One of our goals, though, is to make that the oddity–and bring individual, local florists back to the forefront. There are many reasons why dealing with florists directly is beneficial to both you, as the customer, and to the florists themselves. Even if you live in different parts of the country.
Say you live in New York, but have a loved one going in for an operation somewhere in Wisconsin. You can’t be there, but you can send get well flowers to show you are thinking of your loved one. On BloomNation all you need to do is enter the location into the search engine and choose a florist in that area. If you don’t find something you like in their displays (or have other questions,) talk to them directly. Make sure they are familiar with the hospital, get recommendations for sick-bed flowers, and more. Whether for happy occasions or sad, the personalized touch of a local florist makes a big difference.
Floral designers and flower arrangers take great pride in their artistry, and love to show their versatility. Our florists create unique, imaginative bouquets in various price ranges, often using local, in-season flowers. And reflecting something of the cultures with which they are surrounded. A cluster of roses in a desert region, for instance, may be nesstled in with succulents and wildflowers instead of baby’s breath. Or you may look into a seaside confection and be transported by flowers and greenery that mimic the colors of the ocean and reefs of coral. Exquisite, imaginative and local.
When you order from a local florist in BloomNation’s marketplace of florists, you don’t pay any sort of middleman fee. Florists set their own prices, run their own promotions or discounts–and take care of your order personally. You know right away if they need to substitute one flower for another, because they will tell you directly. This way, you can be assured that what you order is what is delivered to your recipient–no surprises. And, if for some reason you are unhappy, the florist can work right with you to make it right.
All of our florists, whether large flower shops with multiple locations, or small one or two-person shows, are talented, dedicated professionals. Browse through our floral marketplace and just drink in the beauty–when you are ready to order, it just takes a click to go local.
