Celebrate Blumz Forget Me Not Friday This Year for Valentine's

Every year on February 14th we celebrate Valentine’s Day. People send flowers and candies to show their love and appreciation for their partners, friends, and family.  We love Valentine’s Day and we love celebrating love. In fact, we wish everyday was as magical as Valentine’s Day so we came up with a fun way to stretch this year's holiday out a little further.   

Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday February 14th  this year we think it would be fun to send flowers and candies a little earlier in the week before the holiday. This way, you can stretch your celebration out over a weekend or even a full week.  Instead of rushing out to get something at the last minute you can  pre-arrange to have flowers sent before the weekend even starts, your loved one will be extra surprised!

We love the idea of celebrating Valentines Day throughout the week, so we came up with an incentive to get you to send those flowers a little earlier this year.  If you order flowers and have them delivered to someone on or before Friday, February 12th we will include a box of chocolates and a balloon for FREE. The only thing that's better than getting an unexpected Valentine's surprise on your doorstep is getting an even bigger surprise for the same price.  

We will also be giving away some prizes on Friday January 29th, February 5th and 12th. To enter to win a prize you must post a picture on your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and hashtag it #blumzforgetmenotfriday.   You can take a picture of whatever you would like but we would love to see pictures of flowers, plants, or your Valentine! Prizes will include gourmet truffles, chocolate covered strawberries and pretzels, gift cards, gift baskets and more!

Call us or visit today and place your Valentine’s Day orders early this year.  If you would like to order online please use the code VDAY2016 at checkout, if you want to call in an order simply mention this promotion to one of our sales associates and we'll make sure that you are taken care of.

Don’t leave your lover out in the cold this Valentine's Day while you run up to the store and pick up whatever last minute stuff you can find, send them something unique earlier in the week and warm their spirits this year.
