We are always excited when one of our DIY’ers shares their DIY wedding flowers with us. Especially with such a tough wedding color, blue! This beautiful DIY wedding was on a winter day in Wallington New Jersey. Anya Foto Photography captured the classy blue and white wedding. Go visit Anya Foto Photography to see the full wedding, the blue bridesmaids dresses are a particular favorite!

It can prove  difficult to incorporate blue flowers in a design. In fact, there are only a few blue flowers that occur in nature. This blushing bride went with blue delphinium. Other options include blue iris, blue hydrangea, and spray tinted flowers. In 2014 navy blue is going to be a popular wedding flower color. Pantone color reports and blogs are excited to publish blue and nautical themed weddings! So keep an eye out for these designs and maybe used this as inspiration!

We love hearing all the positive feedback. We get constant motivation to continue to provide the freshest quality flowers and premier customer service. This specific couple sent us photos and thanks.

They said, “We thought this would be a great opportunity to reach out to those who enriched our wedding day. Thank you very much again for your professionalism and responsiveness as we made our flower selections. We were very pleased with the final products and thought it would be nice to share a few photographs of them (taken by our photographer, AnyaFoto). Thank you again, and we’ll be sure to suggest Blooms By The Box to our friends and family.”

Thank you so much Carolyn and Stan!

Looking to maximize your Valentines Day Fundraising? Blooms By The Box has you covered. With a huge selection of flowers at low wholesale prices, we also have the resources to help make your venture a success. Let’s talk about options.

Freedom Rose 3 Stems

Roses vs. Carnations

Demand: Roses are consistently the most in-demand flower for Valentines Day Fundraising, with red roses topping the charts. With this being said, they can get expensive. If you are targeting higher-income customers, then roses are the way to go. However, if you’re fundraising in a school, then carnations are a cheaper alternative that students will be able to afford.

Tip: Roses are priced by the length of their stems – the longer the stem, the higher the price. If you’re looking to increase profit margins, go for shorter stems, such as 40 cm.

Rose Polar Star 25 stems

Care: Buying wholesale will save you money, but you will be getting your flowers in the condition a florist would. Roses have thorns to strip and leaves that need to be trimmed. For those who don’t have the time and man power to do this, carnations may be a better option. With easily removable leaves and hardy stems and flowers, there is a lot less prep work. As long as they are properly hydrated and kept cool, both flowers will stay fresh for a long time.

Tip: If you need to receive your flowers more than three days in advance or sell them for multiple days, flower food is a must.

Colors: Both roses and carnations come in a wide variety of colors, with red, pink and white being the most popular for Valentines Day Fundraising. If you’re looking for a large variety of colors, you might want to consider our boxes of assorted color roses (no red roses will be included) and assorted color carnations.

V-Day CarnationsStem vs. Bouquet

Prep Work: A single stem will be easier to sell, but a larger bouquet will sell for more money. It’s important to accurately gauge how much work your organization will be able to handle. If you can have a fun, stress-free day of flower arranging with plenty of help, then bouquets may be the way to go.  Otherwise, single stem roses or carnations are still a great option for Valentines Day Fundraising.

Rose Sweet UniqueDemand: It’s important to know your customer base. Will your customers be more interested in purchasing a large, possibly expensive bouquet, or would they be more likely to buy a single stem for less money? Maximizing sales will allow you to maximize profit.
