Mother's Day

How far in advance should I order flowers for Mother’s Day?

We recommend placing your order as soon as possible. The sooner you place your order, the sooner you can secure the flowers you want. When customers place their orders at the last minute, they risk not being able to have the exact arrangement they may desire. This is due to limited supplies and a high order volume during Mother’s Day. As florists fill orders, various flower types begin to run low or go out of stock. This often results in flower substitutions when needing to fill an order in a short time frame after the order has been placed late. When flowers go out of stock, shops are at the mercy of the shipping trucks that will bring in their fresh flower shipments for restocking.

It’s best not to place yourself in a pickle and provide yourself the security of locking in the flowers you desire as soon as possible.

Do I order my flowers online or in-person?

Feel free to come by our shop or place your order at your convenience online.

Online, you will be able to explore your options, select your favorite flowers, order, submit payment, and set a delivery date for your flowers. After you have chosen your flowers in the ordering process, you will be able to provide any card messages or specific delivery instructions.

If you would like to place your order in-person at Fay's Flowers & Gifts, drop in and allow one of our associates to tend to your needs. We would be delighted to speak with you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask while you’re with us.

If you are unable to travel to the shop and have questions regarding the details of your order or other needs, please feel free to contact us at (800) 842-3319.

    Thanksgiving (USA)

    How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

    Now that you have your lovely flowers for the holiday season, you would like to preserve their beauty for as long as possible. We have provided some fresh flower care tips to help. If you are giving flowers to friends or family, feel free to share this page with them so that they will be able to care for their flowers soon after their delivery.

    First things first
    Most flowers are delivered with a plastic covering. Remove all plastic to all your flowers to breathe. Next, if your flowers are already in a vase or you have just placed them in a vase, refill the vase with fresh water. Your flowers will love the hydration.

    Where you place your flowers can make a difference
    It is best to avoid placing your flower in areas of extreme temperatures: windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These can cause wilting or dry out your flowers. Instead, place your flowers somewhere where they will be in cooler and more controlled conditions.

    It is always good to prevent the possibility of ethylene gas reducing the life of your flowers. This can often come from placing flowers near fruit or cigarette smoke.

    Maintaining your flower’s beautiful presentation
    As your beautiful flowers are on display, check up on them and tend to them periodically over a series of days.

    • For vase arrangements, keep your vase filled with fresh water to provide them with proper hydration.
    • For basket arrangements, it is good to also provide them with hydration. We suggest daily fresh water hydration.
    • Anytime the water begins to become cloudy, change out the water. You will need to clean your vase with soap and water, rinse thoroughly, and then fill your vase back up with fresh water. Using soapy water rather than only rinsing can help remove bacteria that could cause your flowers to die more quickly.
    • Remove any strongly wilted contents: wilting leaves or stems. This will help you maintain a fresher and neater look.
    • Cut your stems at an angle using a sharp knife. We recommend cutting them one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. This will allow your flowers to hydrate and absorb the water properly. Using scissors to cut the stems is not recommended, as scissors can crush the stems and hinder the flower’s ability to drink water.

    How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

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

    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.

    How to maintain a beautiful presentation.

    For vase and basket arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration. 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.

    We offer Christmas flower delivery!

    Fay's Flowers & Gifts offers both store pickup and delivery! Call or order online today, and we will send your favorite Christmas gift yet! We recommend placing your order as soon as possible.

    Valentine's Day

    How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

    Now that you have your stunning flowers, you would like to preserve their beautiful state for as long as possible. Below we have provided some fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

    First things first
    If your flowers came in plastic, you will need to remove the plastic wrapping as soon as possible. This allows for your flowers to breathe. Then provide fresh water for your flowers as soon as possible.

    Where you place your flowers can make a difference
    Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These factors can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Most flowers last longer under cooler and controlled conditions. Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or cigarette smoke. Ethylene gas can reduce the life of your flowers and be detrimental to their lifespan.

    Maintaining a beautiful presentation
    Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

    • Keep vase arrangements filled with fresh water. This allows the plants to drink up the water they need for proper hydration.
    • For basket arrangements, we suggest providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
    • Remember to switch out any cloudy water. You will want to fully clean the inside of your vase with soap and water, thoroughly rinse, and then refill the vase with new water. This will help remove any bacteria that could possibly harm your flowers and cause them to deteriorate more quickly.
    • As you notice leaves or stems wilting, remove the strongly wilted contents. This will help your flowers maintain a fresh and appealing appearance.
    • To help your flowers to maintain proper hydration, use a sharp knife to cut your stems. Cut the stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom. This will help the flowers to absorb water. It is discouraged to use scissors to cut the flower stems. Scissors can crush the stems, preventing proper water absorption.
