    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.

    Valentine's Day

    How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

    Now that you have your stunning flowers, you would like to preserve their beautiful state for as long as possible. Below we have provided some fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

    First things first
    If your flowers came in plastic, you will need to remove the plastic wrapping as soon as possible. This allows for your flowers to breathe. Then provide fresh water for your flowers as soon as possible.

    Where you place your flowers can make a difference
    Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These factors can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Most flowers last longer under cooler and controlled conditions. Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or cigarette smoke. Ethylene gas can reduce the life of your flowers and be detrimental to their lifespan.

    Maintaining a beautiful presentation
    Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

    • Keep vase arrangements filled with fresh water. This allows the plants to drink up the water they need for proper hydration.
    • For basket arrangements, we suggest providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
    • Remember to switch out any cloudy water. You will want to fully clean the inside of your vase with soap and water, thoroughly rinse, and then refill the vase with new water. This will help remove any bacteria that could possibly harm your flowers and cause them to deteriorate more quickly.
    • As you notice leaves or stems wilting, remove the strongly wilted contents. This will help your flowers maintain a fresh and appealing appearance.
    • To help your flowers to maintain proper hydration, use a sharp knife to cut your stems. Cut the stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom. This will help the flowers to absorb water. It is discouraged to use scissors to cut the flower stems. Scissors can crush the stems, preventing proper water absorption.

    Mother's Day

    How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

    As your mother is basking in the glory of her new beautiful florals, she will want to preserve that beauty for as long as possible. We have included a few fresh flower care tips to help. Feel free to send her this easy-to-follow guide once her flowers have been delivered.

    First things first
    If your flowers came in plastic wrapping, you would want to remove the plastic as soon as possible. This will allow the flowers to breathe. Secondly, you will want to give fresh water to your flowers to provide hydration. Place bouquets in a vase of appropriate size or fill your current vase with fresh water. If you need to, you can trim the stem’s ends to fit a vase you have. We recommend cutting flower stems at an angle with a sharp knife.

    Where you place your flowers can make a difference
    Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures: windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. Too much heat or sun exposure can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Cooler and more controlled conditions will be best to help preserve the beauty of your flowers.

    Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or in the vicinity of cigarette smoke. These can produce ethylene gas which can reduce the life of your flowers and cause them to die more quickly.

    Maintaining a beautiful presentation
    Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

    • For vase arrangements, keep your vase filled with water. This allows the plants to drink the water they need and provides them hydration.
    • For basket arrangements, we suggest still adding daily fresh water to your flowers.
    • Anytime the water begins to become cloudy, change the water out with fresh water. It would be good to clean the inside of your vase during this change before placing your flowers back into the vase. Using soapy water can help remove bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly. Then make sure you rinse your vase thoroughly.
    • As wilting leaves or stems occur, remove the strongly wilted contents to allow the fresher parts to be the center of attention.
    • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. This will help your flowers better absorb water. We recommend avoiding using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and hinder the flower from being able to absorb the water.
