Why Should You Send Flowers?
There are a lot of meaningful gifts and reasons to give, as a florist though I maybe slightly biased. I believe that flowers are the perfect gift for every occassion, as our slogan says "XQZT Floral, making your life moments XQZT".
Flowers are the perfect extension to your life moments. Whether it be the birth of a baby, the celebration of a birthday, a thinking of you, get well soon, or an anniversary, there is no lack of reasons to send flowers. The best way to get some brownie points is to send that "just because" bouquet, and make sure to send it to the office so it gets the ample attention the gesture deserves.
My biggest pet peeve is the one phrase I hear all the time, "but flowers do not last, they die", well they last longer then some other gifts. The last time I checked my meal out only lasted an hour, two hours at most, and 12 hours later it was evacuated entirly from my system, sometimes with not so great results. So then why not flowers that could last up to two weeks or more?
I am not saying that I do not enjoy a good meal out, heck anyone who knows me knows that I do, what I am saying is that despite the fact the flowers do die, they make a lasting impression. If they can also make a person feel better, the pick me up is well worth it.
I have always believed that flowers should be part of your life and that they should not cost a fortune to be a part of your life. They can be econimical for everyone and I am not meaning just by purchasing them at the gorcery store.
XQZT Floral runs a special weekly on Friday. These specials consist of locally supplied florals grown by farmers that I travel to myself in the early hours of the morning. Each week I feature a very economical bouquet, cut flowers, or design that are cost effective, and which benefits are well worth the stop by XQZT Floral Design. These little pick me ups, gifts, or what have you run from $10-$25.00 are sourced locally and sold locally. Therefore also making you feel good about supporting your local businesses and your local farmers, it is a win win all around.
