Preparing for Valentine’s Day? Don’t Forget to Order Flowers Early

Pink teddy bears and heart-shaped candies have arrived and romance is in the air. This can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day is almost here! Our Philadelphia florists at Robertson’s Flowers are here to remind you that best way to plan for Valentine’s Day is to do so early. No one wants to spend the holiday rushing around in a crowd of last-minute shoppers. So, make your dinner reservations, pick out your gifts, and get ready to order your flowers in advance. 

Simple yet stunning - this lush, compact arrangement of all pink roses is designed in our signature leaf-lined cylinder vase.

Why You Should Order Your Flowers Early for Valentine’s Day


1. Take Advantage of Pre-Holiday Prices

Flowers are sold at a reduced price prior to Valentine’s Day to encourage early ordering. By putting your order in early, you’ll save money that you can put toward your romantic Valentine’s Day plans, instead.

2. Get Your First Choice of Flowers

Millions of Valentine’s Day bouquets are delivered each year, which means the most popular designs, flowers, and colors sell out fast. If you order early, you’ll beat the rush and have a better chance of getting your first design choice.

3. Special Delivery

We offer delivery specials on early orders, and ordering early also means you’ll be able to schedule your delivery before our delivery schedule fills up.

So, When Should You Order Your Valentine’s Day Flowers?

We continue to accept orders for same-day delivery through Valentine’s Day. If you wait until the holiday to order, products may be limited and delivery will be much later than normal. We’re unfortunately not able to guarantee arrival times for same-day orders that come in on Valentine’s Day. We suggest pre-ordering five days or more prior to the 14th.

Why Choose a Local Flower Shop for Your Valentine’s Day Flowers?

When you order flowers from a local flower shop, instead of a national delivery service, you’ll enjoy receiving personalized, real-time customer service, having better quality control, and helping our local economy. Plus, our florists can accommodate custom requests and will never surprise you with unexpected delivery charges or processing fees.

More Advice for a Smooth Valentine’s Day Flower Delivery

When you order your flowers, we ask that you have all your details ready, so the process is efficient. We’ll need your recipient’s correct addresses (primary and a back-up), phone numbers, and special delivery instructions are crucial when delivery is scheduled for a super-busy holiday, like Valentine’s Day, when we might also have inclement weather. We design and deliver, as requested, but sometimes recipients aren’t home or mother nature can throw us a curveball. The more information you provide us, the easier time we’ll have successfully carrying out your delivery request.

We welcome customers to order online, over the phone, and in-person. Lots of customers prefer online ordering because they have plenty of time to shop around and can do so whenever it’s convenient for them. If ordering online, details are requested, but you’ll be able to see the product you’re choosing. Plus, when you order online, you can earn Petal Rewards to put toward flowers for future special occasions.

However you choose to order, our florists at Robertson’s Flowers will be here to help you select the best bouquet for celebrating Valentine’s Day with your special someone.
