Valentine’s Day is our biggest floral event of the entire year which means we devote a lot of our time to prepping. There are so many moving parts, from prepping flowers, creating arrangements, taking orders, doing deliveries….the list is long. During this busy time we make many trips to California to source the freshest and best quality flowers. We order mass quantities of vases and water tubes. We work tirelessly on our website, Facebook posts and marketing planning. We contact the City of Tempe to get permits for all of our additional signage outside of our shop. We rearrange the cooler to make as much room as possible for arrangements for customers to pick up and for orders waiting to be delivered. We bring in handfuls of temps to help with order taking, customer service, delivery driving, flower prep and so much more. This shop is chaotic and keeping everything under control takes a lot of work!
We’re really excited this year because we’ve built a strong and engaged following on social media and we intend to really utilize that medium to advertise and promote. We’ll be doing some Facebook Live to show you the inside scoop so make sure you’ve liked our Facebook page! We’re having fun coming up with some new specialty arrangements like our Heart of Gold arrangement.
At Bobbie’s, we even make proactive phone calls to our customers who have placed orders in previous years, we find this to be a service people appreciate since it takes something off their plate. This year our theme is Go Big or Don’t Go Home. It will be on much of our marketing.
