Seems a lot of people are looking to see what’s available and shopping for the best deals.
If you plan on sending flowers for Easter, I’ve got an important tip…

If you are looking for an Easter gift idea other than flowers, why not consider sending your special someone a delicious box of chocolates or an Easter gift basket.
Gift baskets are a great Easter gift, and can be filled with all sorts of delicious gourmet sweets and confections including cookies, candies, chocolates and more!
You can find more information about gift baskets and other sweet treats as well, by visiting Harry & David.
There are two good reasons to order your flowers early for Easter.
- You’ll save money.
- Avoid disappointment.
- Bonus Tip
Frankly, I don’t think the discounts on Easter flowers will disappear. But experience tells me they won’t get any better, either. Generally, the earlier you order, the better the discount.
If you do wait until the last minute to order, the flowers you want may no longer be available. Substitutions may be necessary. It’s a matter of supply and demand and lower inventories. To avoid disappointment, I encourage you to order early.
Another way to save money is to be flexible with the delivery date. Consider having your flowers delivered a day or two earlier. The demand for delivery before any holiday is heavy, so many florists offer incentives for early delivery.
Bad weather, especially an unexpected spring storm, can also adversely affect delivery, so allowing your florist a larger window for delivery may save you some aggravation as well as money.
So if you plan to send Easter flowers, don’t wait. Order now and pocket the savings.
