National Boss Day

3 Reasons To Gift Flowers For National Boss Day

Peace
There have always been special qualities that nature has possessed. For instance, the tranquility one finds in a green and vibrant garden under the golden sun, as they hear the sweet silence of nature among the music of birds. Or the magic one feels as they behold a colorfully painted butterfly fluttering its wings as it perches upon beautiful flowers in a garden. Nature can offer a therapeutic effect. The peaceful nature of a flower is something to treasure, a truly priceless gift one can give to another.

As a business leader, one must make several decisions and sort out several details. Like anyone’s position, one finds themselves stressed more times than others or taken by the tasks ahead of them. Offer your boss a lovely arrangement of vibrant flowers to lift their spirits. Every act of kindness makes an impact.

Affirmation and Encouragement
As each of us works hard every day, we desire our work to be recognized and to feel appreciated. We appreciate feeling accomplished. Share your care and kindness by offering your boss affirmation in their efforts through a beautiful bouquet. This is a great way to boost morale and provide one with extra encouragement to press forward.

Delivery
Montezuma Floral has a variety of flowers you can peruse to select your perfect arrangement. To provide you with additional convenience, we would be happy to deliver your flowers to the business. If you have any questions regarding your order or the details of your delivery, please feel free to contact Montezuma Floral at (641) 623-2984. We would be happy to help.

Sweetest Day

Who Can I Give Flowers On Sweetest Day?

Unlike Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day is not a lover-exclusive holiday, nor is it as heavy weighing. Valentine’s Day has been known to include elaborate gifting, special date ideas, and trying to woo your romantic partner. However, Sweetest Day is much more laid back and focused on spreading cheer to anyone around you through a small gift like flowers accompanied by a little baggy of sweet treats. You have the ability to give a non-romantic gesture to anyone you please or offer an extra expression of affection to someone close to you.

Co-workers
We work alongside peers regularly and often forget to show care and appreciation for them. Whether you have a work bestie or feel a co-worker could use a good deed or piece of encouragement, a gift of flowers can be a wonderful small way to brighten their day. If you want to share words of encouragement or affirmation with them, you can provide a personalized card message in the online ordering process that will be delivered with their flowers.

Neighbors
If you’ve never had formal introductions, now is a perfect opportunity to break the ice and warm their heart. Sometimes we don’t know the ones who live right across or beside us. Don’t remain a stranger. Break the ice and offer the kind gesture of flowers with a heartwarming card message. Not sure how to start that conversation? No problem. Smile, kindly introduce yourself, explain that it’s Sweetest Day, what it is, and then offer them their gift. This could be a good way to encourage them or potentially be the beautiful beginning to a good friendship. It never hurts to spread the cheer.

Stranger
There are several people we pass every day without ever knowing personally. You pass faces at the grocery store, while out shopping, or while at an event. You see some people just in the passing, such as your mailman, the store clerk, a greeter, etc. Every person has a different path in life, job, personality, and things they may be going through. This is all the more reason why Sweetest Day could be the exact occasion needed to sprinkle some happiness into people’s everyday lives and routines. Who is someone you could share some kindness with a lovely bouquet of flowers? Imagine the sweet surprise upon their face. You will have blessed a stranger and brightened their day. This is what Sweetest Day is all about.

Friends / Family / Lovers
Surprise your besties, lovers, or family with a gorgeous bouquet and shower them with words of affirmation through a special card message. Let them know how much you appreciate them and the things about them that are so special to you. If you’re really close, you could select a bouquet that incorporates their favorite colors or favorite flowers. To make a truly perfect pair, you could easily add some of their favorite candies or treats along with their beautiful bouquet. If they have yet to hear of Sweetest Day before, here is your opportunity to introduce them to the sweet holiday.

Thanksgiving (USA)

How far in advance should I order flowers for Thanksgiving?

It is best to order your flowers for Thanksgiving as soon as possible. This can help you secure your desired flowers and ensure their delivery date. Select the flowers you wish, place the order early, and set the delivery date to your anticipated date in the future. This is a smart shopping tactic to beat the other customers to the supply of flowers and avoid order complications caused by low supply during high order volume periods.

The later your order is placed, the riskier your chances are of receiving the exact florals you want. As the time draws close to Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving week, specific flower supplies begin to run low or go out of stock. Once flowers start going out of stock from filling a mass of orders, the shop will heavily be relying upon the flower shipments to come in to restock. If an order is placed too late, this can often result in flower substitutions to an order.

Shop smart and worry less.

Do I order my flowers online or in-person?
This option is up to you! We offer both in-store ordering and the convenience of ordering your flowers online.

When you order online, easily select the flowers of your desire, order, pay, and set a delivery date for your flowers. During your ordering process, you will be able to add any card messages or delivery instructions after you have selected your arrangement.

Feel free to come by Montezuma Floral and speak with our associates to place your order. We would be happy to assist and answer any questions you may have.

Unable to travel to the shop? No worries. We understand the holiday season can be busy, and some customers will be out of town traveling for different periods. Please feel free to contact us at (641) 623-2984. We would be glad to assist you with any questions regarding the details of your order or other needs.

How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

Once you have received your flowers, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference.

Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

How to maintain a beautiful presentation.

For vase and basket arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration. When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.

For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display. Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.

We offer Christmas flower delivery!

Montezuma Floral offers both store pickup and delivery! Call or order online today, and we will send your favorite Christmas gift yet! We recommend placing your order as soon as possible. The sooner, the better. By placing your order early and scheduling your future delivery in advance, you secure your selection. This will prevent any flower substitutions that you could experience if you placed your order in the thick of a high order volume time and limited supply.

Valentine's Day

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

Now that you have your stunning flowers, you would like to preserve their beautiful state for as long as possible. Below we have provided some fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
If your flowers came in plastic, you will need to remove the plastic wrapping as soon as possible. This allows for your flowers to breathe. Then provide fresh water for your flowers as soon as possible.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These factors can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Most flowers last longer under cooler and controlled conditions. Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or cigarette smoke. Ethylene gas can reduce the life of your flowers and be detrimental to their lifespan.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

  • Keep vase arrangements filled with fresh water. This allows the plants to drink up the water they need for proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we suggest providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • Remember to switch out any cloudy water. You will want to fully clean the inside of your vase with soap and water, thoroughly rinse, and then refill the vase with new water. This will help remove any bacteria that could possibly harm your flowers and cause them to deteriorate more quickly.
  • As you notice leaves or stems wilting, remove the strongly wilted contents. This will help your flowers maintain a fresh and appealing appearance.
  • To help your flowers to maintain proper hydration, use a sharp knife to cut your stems. Cut the stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom. This will help the flowers to absorb water. It is discouraged to use scissors to cut the flower stems. Scissors can crush the stems, preventing proper water absorption.

Can I request a flower substitution in my Mother's Day arrangement?

Yes, Montezuma Floral can provide flower substitutions, depending upon availability. During high-order volume holidays, such as Mother's Day, we recommend placing your order as early as possible. Typically, the closer florists get to Mother's Day, the more orders we have and flower supplies quickly run out.

When you place an order too close to Mother's Day, you risk having to select a different product or make flower substitutions. This is due to flower supplies running low with many orders to fill. Waiting for supply trucks after our supplies have dwindled can also be unpredictable.
