This Week At WholeBlossoms…
This year, Valentine’s Day has been a busy holiday for all of us at WholeBlossoms. Our Sales team and Operational support functions (shipping, order team, logistics, quality control, post harvest team, etc) have all been extremely busy managing the high volume of orders and shipments. We want to assure our customers, however, that we’re always here to help out with any questions you may have, whether in the midst of the busiest floral holiday of the year, or during another typical workday.
In addition to its main hub in Dallas, Texas, WholeBlossoms maintains support teams in Colombia and Ecuador, not to mention the numerous farms around the globe which all come together to ship only the freshest flowers for weddings, events and holidays like Valentine’s Day. Our shipping carriers like FedEx and UPS help support our efforts with quick shipping service between the fields and you.
All indications point to a busier year in 2013. Our locally grown and imported cut flowers look great and are in good supply this month and expected to be for the rest of the year. There are many field flower crops which have snapped back after the brief cold weather experienced on the west coast. A few choice locally grown flowers like Larkspur and Lisianthus show shortages but these are easily overcome with imports that provide assurance on availability for our orders. Our principal buyer Megan is finding local Hellebores now available and in many colors. An abundant supply of Anemones, Sweet Peas, Acacia, Apricot branches, Quince branches, and Almond branches is manifesting this month. Let us know if you’re needing any of these varieties for custom ordering.
Due to our large network of partner farms and strong partnership with FedEx and UPS, we are able to fill many last minute flower orders. Many flowers fall under this category and include sweetheart roses, gerberas, lilies, tulips and many more varietals. If you are looking to get some specialty Holland items, please call us to place your order as soon as possible. Generally, a 3-4 day timeframe is needed at the minimum to have flowers in hand to you. This is due to the global expanse which prevents same day shipping and delivery restrictions imposed by the shipping carriers.
For rush orders or last minute requests or modifications to existing orders, please email us or call our toll free number for immediate assistance. Our office is open from 830am until 600pm CST during the week, and 900am to 1200pm on Saturdays. The WholeBlossoms team is ready here to help you make your wedding flowers planning a success.
Hope you have a prosperous Valentines week!
