Local Florist

The local florist has long been a fixture in many communities. Many small towns usually have one person who handles a huge spread of activities and floral arranging for all sorts of occasions such as weddings, funerals and proms for example. Additionally, they cater to the general likes of the community of individuals looking to just add a touch of color to their homes. These professionals are a great resource for anyone looking to add color and variety to any occasion, and because of their years of hands on experience (and usually a family lineage) they are in a great position to provide advice.

For years these professionals were the only source of flowers for any community, but the Internet changed all of that by adding a massive array of competitors for local markets that could deliver flowers direct to your door. Web retailers were the biggest threat in the bulk flower market as they could deliver greater savings on a larger amount of orders. Nonetheless, the local shop is still a wonderful resource even if it costs a bit more.

With a local professional, you can discuss in person the details and they can make suggestions as they design floral arrangements. Best of all, if you donít like something, they can alter it immediately in person. With online shopping, what you get is what you paid for and because itís a flower, itís different in a picture than in real life. Thatís why itís best to usually find a balance for your floral arrangements between these two types of vendors. Go with bulk flowers with an online retailer and specialized arrangements with a local professional.
