Did the lockdown at the beginning of COVID-19 get you down? Wouldn’t it have been nice to have a flower delivery subscription already set up?
I bet the homes and offices that did already have subscriptions were so happy. It was 3 months into the pandemic before the idea dawned on me to set up a flower delivery subscription and what a difference it made on our mental health!
A flower subscription can bring fresh flowers into your home or office on a regular basis, adding a touch of beauty and elegance.
Flowers have been shown to boost moods and create a more positive environment, so a regular subscription can help to create a more pleasant and inviting space. In addition, flowers can help to purify the air and reduce stress levels, so a subscription can be a great way to improve your overall well-being.
We loved having fresh flowers in our home during the dark days of the pandemic, and we’ve decided to continue getting them delivered every other week. It’s such a simple pleasure that brightens up our home and brings us joy.
We tried a few different floral companies over the last 2+ years and I wanted to share our findings with you.
What To Look For In A Flower Subscription
The first thing to consider is how often you want your flowers delivered. Weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly?
Next question to answer is what kind of flowers do you want?
Some options include freshly cut flowers that are seasonal, all roses in every delivery, a mixed arrangement or live plants. Maybe you want some of each delivered on a regular basis.
Your local florist may also offer live plants on a subscription. You can take care of them by yourself, or the florist can come to you on a regular basis and take care of them.
Here are some questions to answer as you search for a flower subscription service;
- Does your florist offer term subscriptions or ongoing?
- Are the flowers coming from a local florist or a national company delivering them by mail?
- Can you customize your orders?
- Do you need to pay up front or are they charged as they are sent?
