Hello Flower Friends!
It's been a while ;-)
If you have followed my social media for a couple of years or have checked out my website offerings, you would know that I offer a Monthly Flower Subscription - in fact, this is my THIRD year offering this service to the qathet Regional District. I love offering subscriptions because it truly is the gift that keeps on giving; whether you're giving that gift to yourself, to someone you love or to someone you want to thank. I also love the ease it brings of accessing flowers in your home without having to do any work - they just show up on the third Friday of every month and you get to sit back and enjoy them.
On my end, flower subscriptions take a lot of time and thought. I purposely choose every single element in that bouquet and make it unique to my committed flower lovers - it's not a bouquet that I offer as a regular item as I want it to be special for my subscribers. I have two subscription offers - Flower of the Month Club and Bouquet of the Month Club. I start by choosing what flower I want to feature for that month and that flower is chosen based on a few criteria: availability, colour, seasonality, uniqueness, price, longevity, and I always try to choose BC grown flowers, when possible. For the Bouquet of the Month Subscription, I think of a design that highlights the Flower of the Month (which is incorporated and dominant in the Bouquet of the Month). I then choose botanicals to compliment the Flower of the Month, again based on the same criteria as how I choose the Flower of the Month; availability, colour, seasonality, uniqueness, price, longevity, and choosing BC grown flowers, when possible.
My flowers arrive from Vancouver by tug boat (!) and I get them processed and hydrated as quickly as possible so that I can get them designed and out to you by the next day; the faster I can get them in your hands, the longer you get to enjoy them! I always wrap my flowers in kraft paper because it is compostable and recyclable and I leave the bottom unwrapped so that they can go in to a container of water at your door, should you not be home when your delivery arrives. I include care instructions on every order, every month - but we'll leave that discussion for another post.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my Flower of the Month and Bouquet of the Month Subscription process.
