The Benefits of Choosing Flowers from Academy Florist
At Academy Florist we take great pride in our attention to detail when it comes to selecting and arranging flowers. We source them straight from the flower farm, ensuring that they are as fresh as possible when they arrive at our shop. In addition, we offer delivery so you don’t have to worry about picking up your order yourself. If needed, we also offer same-day pick up so you can get your flowers at a time that works best for your schedule.
The Most Popular Flower Varieties for Valentine's Day
There are so many flower varieties available that it can be difficult to make a decision on which one to choose! That's where we come in.
Our Valentine's Collection is curated with everyone in mind. Whether your special someone loves a traditional gift of red roses, or a more modern creation with specialty blooms in a keepsake vase, we've got you covered.
Some of our personal favourites include roses (obviously), peonies, ranunculus, mums, and carnations (yes, carnations!)
Getting the Most Out of Your Valentine's Day Flowers
Regardless of whom you're buying for, it's important to make sure you get the best quality blooms. Here are five tips to help you pick out the perfect Valentine’s Day flowers and ensure they arrive in time for the big day!
1. Pre-Order
While we intend to have several items available in-store on the big day itself, to make your ordering experience go as smoothly as possible we recommend pre-ordering your flowers beforehand. Ordering online for delivery or pick up, or calling our friendly team to place your order over the phone ensures that you get exactly what you're looking for. We are great at asking a few simple questions to ensure we get it just right. Our team is also able to make wonderful suggestions that you may not think of yourself.
2. Pick up Your Flowers on the Day You Are Gifting Them
If you are picking up your flower order, being able to give them to their recipient as soon as possible makes them last longer! We include instructions along with each item so that they can receive proper care, as we want them to enjoy their blooms for as long as possible.
3. Add a Special Touch
Include a personalized note on one of our adorable Valentine cards, or add a gift to your flower order to make it extra special! We offer several Valentine's Day gift options to help you go the extra mile, including candles, chocolates, candy, or rose petals. If you need help choosing, much like suggestions for flowers, our team can help you curate the perfect Valentine gift box.
