Tips for Buying Valentine’s Day Flowers

Valentine’s Day, the most popular day for flowers, is on its way. Like all florists, at Brenham Floral in Downtown Brenham Texas, we will be at our busiest, preparing and delivering all the floral arrangements for the most romantic day of the year.

To make sure your Valentine’s Day goes smoothly, we recommend ordering flowers early. By planning ahead, you’ll ensure you have the best Valentine’s Day possible!

Buying Valentine’s flowers for that special someone can be a challenging task… but it doesn’t have to be.  Shop Valentine's Day now.

Here are our tips to making this next Valentine's Day your best day!

Tip #1: Order Early! Order Early! Order Early!

Probably one of the worst feelings in the world is trying to order flowers for your special someone for Valentine’s Day, only to find out that your florist isn't taking any more deliveries or has run out. At Brenham Floral, we strive to order more than enough but we typically have to cut off deliveries on the day of by mid-morning. Be the early bird and schedule your delivery as soon as possible. 

It’s never too early to order flowers for Valentine’s Day!

Order early, so as the big day gets closer and closer all you feel is confident about being way ahead of the game. It’s okay, you deserve it! 

Pro Tip: Ordering early also helps ensure you get exactly what you’re looking for. 

Ordering your flowers early will give your local florist enough time to secure the blooms you want. We keep orchids, peonies, and other special flowers available in small amounts. You definitely don’t want to miss out on having your sweetheart’s fav flowers in their arrangement.

Give yourself some peace of mind and the freedom to focus on planning out the rest of your evening without distraction or fear of showing up flower-less on Valentine’s Day.

Tip #2: Shop Smart, Shop Local

No one wants to over-pay for flowers; better yet, no one wants to overpay for flowers and then not get their money’s worth…right!?

When you call Ava's Flowers, BloomNet or 1-800-Flowers, you're getting what we call "order takers". Someone in a warehouse in New Jersey or Los Angeles will take your order, mark it up, then call us to fulfill it. It's easier and more reliable to call directly (979-836-3566) or order online at  to ensure your blooms are the best price!

Ordering from a local florist is the best way to make sure you get what you ordered (and what you paid for). #shoplocal

Tip #3: Choose Flowers Your Special Someone Will Love

Classic dozen roses is always a good bet but what if your special someone doesn't like roses? 

Don't be afraid to choose the flowers you want. Don't see the arrangement from our list? Choose a Valentine's Day Designer Choice and describe in the notes section of our online ordering. Or give us a ring at 979-836-3566 and work with our team to get the perfect bouquet. 

Choosing flowers your sweetheart will be able to enjoy for as long as possible is key.
