Valentine’s Day. After 10 years working for others in retail floral, I gotta say, I don’t miss it. Well, maybe a little. But we don’t do Valentine’s Day at Pollen. Just full-service weddings and events.
Today, I changed Pollen’s answering machine message to say that we don’t do gift deliveries. Answering machine, you ask? Yep, answering machine. I got a land line when we moved the studio. The anxiety of having my cell phone ring on a Sunday was starting to get to me. (Should I answer? Shouldn’t I?) So I got a land line. Unfortunately, the phone number I got with the land line belonged to a restaurant that too-recently shut down. I should start selling pizzas on the side, with all the calls I get for food orders.
I’ll be honest, I’m going to be screening calls this week, especially on Friday. If you want to reach me this week, send a message through the contact page here, email me, or call my cell phone if you have the number.
As I was saying, we don’t do Valentine’s Day, but I highly recommend you work directly with a florist located in the area that you would like delivery. I while back, I provided the reasons why. Here are some of my favorite local retail flower shops (in alpha order):
I love our floral community. Lots of very talented florists to choose from in the area!
