Thanksgiving (USA)

How far in advance should I order flowers for Thanksgiving?

It is best to order your flowers for Thanksgiving as soon as possible. This can help you secure your desired flowers and ensure their delivery date. Select the flowers you wish, place the order early, and set the delivery date to your anticipated date in the future. This is a smart shopping tactic to beat the other customers to the supply of flowers and avoid order complications caused by low supply during high order volume periods.

The later your order is placed, the riskier your chances are of receiving the exact florals you want. As the time draws close to Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving week, specific flower supplies begin to run low or go out of stock. Once flowers start going out of stock from filling a mass of orders, the shop will heavily be relying upon the flower shipments to come in to restock. If an order is placed too late, this can often result in flower substitutions to an order.

Shop smart and worry less.

Do I order my flowers online or in-person?
This option is up to you! We offer both in-store ordering and the convenience of ordering your flowers online.

When you order online, easily select the flowers of your desire, order, pay, and set a delivery date for your flowers. During your ordering process, you will be able to add any card messages or delivery instructions after you have selected your arrangement.

Feel free to come by VISIONS FLOWERS & BRIDAL DESIGNS and speak with our associates to place your order. We would be happy to assist and answer any questions you may have.

Unable to travel to the shop? No worries. We understand the holiday season can be busy, and some customers will be out of town traveling for different periods. Please feel free to contact us at (207) 465-8200. We would be glad to assist you with any questions regarding the details of your order or other needs.

Christmas

How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

Once you have received your flowers for Christmas, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
Remove the plastic that may have been wrapping your flowers. Once the plastic wrapping is removed, your flowers will be able to breathe. Next, fill a vase with fresh water for your flowers.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Periodically tend to your flowers to help preserve their beauty.

  • For vase arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we recommend providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.
  • For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.
