The Importance of a Fresh Flower Arrangement

There's nothing like a beautiful flower arrangement to brighten up your home or the home of a loved one. But if you purchase a cheap flower bouquet from a supermarket or halfhearted florist, that arrangement can be worthless and fall apart in only a day or two. That's why purchasing a fresh flower arrangement from a passionate, first-class florist like La Fleur Fresh Flower Market is essential.

At La Fleur, we not only have the highest quality flowers available in Austin, TX, but our arrangements are always fresh, vibrant, and ready to brighten your day. We have a wide variety of flowers to match, so you're sure to find something that you and your loved ones will adore.

Read on to learn more about why fresh flowers will always be better than supermarket brand arrangements and how we keep our flowers so pristine when you come to pick out your arrangement.

A Fresh Flower Arrangement VS Supermarket Arrangements

Here's a breakdown of exactly why fresh flower arrangements from a passionate florist are better in every way than supermarket flowers:

Fresh Flowers are More Vibrant and Full of Life

The first benefit of fresh flowers is that they're simply more beautiful than their supermarket counterparts. Supermarket bouquets are often mass-harvested with little regard for aesthetics and quality, making them look rather dull and uninspired. On the other hand, a good florist will take the time to care for the flowers and arrange them in a visually pleasing and unique way.

A Fresh Flower Arrangement Smells Better

Another benefit of fresh flowers is that they smell great! If you've ever noticed the artificial smell of some supermarket bouquets, you'll know what we're talking about. Fresh flowers have a natural fragrance that can really help to brighten up a room. Not to mention that smelling flowers has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety levels. Who wouldn't want that?

Flowers Kept Fresh Last Much Longer

In addition to being more beautiful, fresh floral arrangements also have a much longer lifespan than supermarket arrangements. This is because supermarket flowers are often already starting to wilt by the time they're bought, whereas fresh flowers have been adequately cared for and will last much longer in your vase. This means that you'll get more bang for your buck when you choose a fresh flower arrangement from La Fleur!

Put It Together Professionally or DIY!

Another benefit of ordering a fresh floral arrangement from a professional florist is that you get the use of their expertise and artistry. A florist will be able to design an arrangement that is not only beautiful but also fits your budget and occasion. So whether you need an arrangement for a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or funeral, a florist will be able to create something special that meets your unique needs. 

However —if you're a bit of a floral aficionado yourself— La Fleur also provides you the opportunity to put your arrangement together yourself, flower by flower! Our walk-in cooler gives you a comfortable space to browse our selection of fresh flowers while simultaneously keeping every flower in optimal condition! And that's what we'd like to talk about next.

How We Keep Our Flowers Fresh

Here at La Fleur Fresh Flower Market in beautiful Austin, Texas, we only use the best of the best to keep our flowers fresh. That's why we have a walk-in cooler to keep our floral selection in tip-top condition. Of course, not all florists are this serious about flowers, but we believe that if you're going to do something, you should do it right.

Here are just a few of the benefits of using a walk-in cooler for your flowers:

Temperature Control

When it comes to keeping flowers fresh, temperature is everything. If a flower gets too hot, its petals will wilt, and its lifespan will be significantly reduced. On the other hand, if a flower gets too cold, its buds will never fully bloom. A walk-in cooler allows us to maintain a consistent temperature that is perfect for keeping flowers fresh and vibrant. 

Humidity Control

In addition to temperature, humidity is also crucial for keeping flowers fresh. Flowers will lose moisture if the air is too dry and die prematurely. But if the air is too humid, flowers will grow moldy and rot. A walk-in cooler allows us to control both the temperature and humidity of our flower storage, ensuring that our blooms always look their best. 

Protection From Sunlight

While a little bit of sunlight is necessary for flowers to grow, too much sunlight can damage freshcut delicate petals and shorten a flower's lifespan. By storing our flowers in a walk-in cooler, we can protect them from overexposure to harmful UV rays and keep them looking beautiful for longer. 

Reduced Stress

Flowers are living organisms, and like all living things, they experience stress when they're not taken care of properly. By storing our flowers in a cool, dark place, we can reduce their stress levels and help them stay healthy for longer. 

Better Organization

A walk-in cooler gives us plenty of space to store all of our flowers in an organized way. This helps us keep track of what we have in stock and makes it easy for you to find the perfect blooms for each fresh flower arrangement. 

Increasing Lifespan

Perhaps most importantly —as we've already mentioned— using a walk-in cooler can significantly increase the lifespan of your flowers. This means that you can rest easy knowing that when you take your new arrangement to its new home, it will last as long as possible with the proper care!
