Valentines Flowers for Victoria BC Delivery by Artistry in Bloom

Valentine's Day is just around the corner so I thought you might like some suggestions on what to send and when to have your flowers delivered.
This year Valentines falls on a Sunday. Although normally closed on Sundays we will be open for deliveries on February 14. However, we do suggest you order your Valentine's flowers for delivery a few days before Valentines for several reasons.

Normally we can specify morning, afternoon, or end of day delivery times but for floral holidays such as Valentines or Mother's Day the demand for deliveries is so great that specific times cannot be guaranteed. We always phone to ensure the person will be home for delivery and usually the first thing they ask is "What time will it be?". On a normal day we can give a time frame within a few hours but that may not be the case on Valentine's Day and most people do not want to stay at home and wait for a delivery. We will leave the arrangement at the doorstep in a protected area but only with the recipient's prior consent. If you are ordering a cut bouquet of flowers that is not in a vase with water the bouquets cannot be left if the person is not home.

Secondly, if your Valentine works there is nothing more special than sending the flowers to her workplace sometime during the week prior to Valentines. We will include the "just couldn't wait heart card with your order. When a delivery person carrying flowers enters a workplace all eyes are on him until the flowers are presented to the lucky lady. The other ladies rush over to have a look at the flowers and say how lucky she is to have someone like you-so not only do you impress her but she will feel special as well.
This year if you are ordering before February 11 we are offering the option of adding delicious gourmet cupcakes from Ooh La La Cupcake Bakery to your flower order. The cupcakes are only available as an add on to your order but you can choose from 6 regular cupcakes or a sample pack of 12 mini cupcakes with all 12 of their flavours. Sweet and delicious like chocolates but something a little different.

Delectable Deliveries- series 5- Artistry in Blooms Specialty Designs

                                                          DELECTABLE DELIVERIES

Our Delectable Deliveries which are found on our website http://www.flowerartisan.com/ are a unique pairing of flowers and delectable delights. We have several combinations of floral arrangements which are paired with something delicious to make a one of a kind gift. Some examples include freshly baked cupcakes, cookies, or cakes.They are especially perfect for celebrations because they include not only the centerpiece but also a delicious treat.


Our Cupcake Combo is particularly popular for Mother's Day, Christmas, and Valentine's Day.
We do special floral designs and decorations for the Christmas and Valentine's Day package.

 Ooh La La Cupcake bakery is known for their wide range of delicious flavours and they are our choice for the cupcakes in our specialty packages.                                                                         

You will find the normal custom gift baskets and fruit baskets in our Delectable Delivery section as well as a picnic basket that would be perfect for someone moving into a new home.

All baked goods are made to order with two local bakeries. They are picked up very early in the morning the day of delivery and added to the floral design. These packages all must be ordered at least two days ahead of requested delivery date so that I can make arrangements to pick them up the day of delivery before our studio opens.
If you would like a custom package made up for you we would be pleased to accommodate you as long as you can give us at least two days notice.

Blooming Baby Clothes Flower Baskets

Blooming Baby Clothes- series 4 in our Specialty Floral Arrangements

This is the fourth example of some of the specialty floral designs we create at Artisty in Bloom.
We shape baby clothes (3-6months or 6-9months sizes) into rosettes and place them in the middle of a basket of silk flowers so that they become part of the arrangement.

These are the baby clothes in the basket above that have been rolled into rosettes and placed in the basket.

Our baby bloom's baskets can be found in the "Oh Baby" section of http://www.flowerartisan.com/

If you are looking to send something that is both
pretty and practial then this is the answer for a newborn baby gift.
