Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

We hope you don’t need this post because ideally you’ve called us, and we’ve taken care of beautiful flowers, candy and a gift for your Valentine. (You can still call, do it now. 760-778-7111) BUT …what if you <gasp> waited until it was too late to get flowers? (Yikes! don’t do that! Call us now!)  If all the stores are closed, what’s a lover to do? Have no fear, try these three standbys from your local 24 hour drugstore or grocery. They have many items that look great with the right paper and bows.

1) Chocolate: nothing beats a big Toblerone bar. Tie a big red ribbon around the gold triangular package, and it’s welcome anywhere

2) Wine or spirits: many grocery stores are stocking decent wine selections these days. Go for a producer you know in the $10+ price range. Insider tip- check the sale flyer in the front of the store- all their wine & liquor sales info is there, and you could score a great deal.

3) For the Valentine who doesn’t like chocolate or wine, check out the natural/organic skin care area, specifically hand lotion. Nine times out of ten there will be pretty, high-end looking scented lotion in the $8-10 range. Go for an herbal scent like lavender or lemon verbena over the berry stuff.

Whatever you choose, definitely hit up the gift wrap aisle, or if you’re super smart, buy some gift bags at the dollar store and put then on your car trunk for emergencies.  And of course, if you’re reading this in advance, as we’ve mentioned, your very best bet is to call us now and let us put together a beautiful arrangement and box of chocolates for you.  We can be reached at 760-778-7111.

Good luck romancing tomorrow!

Be well, and love well

A Palm Springs wedding florist is like a Broadway show.

Like a show opening on Broadway, at My Little Flower Shop, we live and die by our reviews. And boy would some of those shows love to get the press we do!

Thanks to all our couples who go on sites like Yelp!, WeddingWire, and The Knot to talk about their experiences. Other people searching the internet for a Palm Springs wedding florist really trust those three sites in particular, and so to have a good solid set of reviews is a blessing for any wedding vendor.

Curious about these reviews of which I speak? Check them out! And if you’re a My Little Flower Shop newlywed, or not-so-newlywed we’d be so grateful if you took a moment to give us some feedback. Hey – at least you don’t have to sit through “Duck Dynasty: The Musical!” Not yet anyway.

Be grateful on Mondays

Being grateful on Mondays is a big deal at My Little Flower Shop for a few reasons.

  • Having just come off an amazing weekend full of wedding and parties,  we feel honored to be a part of the life of our clients and our community.
  • As a result, we have a thriving business.  We work hard, and we’re thankful for all that our hard work has brought us.
  • We work with the earth’s most beautiful creations: flowers.  To come to work every day to a shop full of beautiful blooms is a blessing.  Cubicles just aren’t our style.
  • Did I mention how amazing a community we are a part of? Other businesses, business organizations, friends, family…

With all that is good in our lives, being depressed about a day of the week just isn’t logical.  So, happy Monday everyone, thanks for sharing it with us.

 

Be well and love well,
