Sweetest Day

Send Someone Sweet A Little Treat

Do you often see someone who goes out of their way to make someone’s day sweeter? Sweetest Day is the perfect day to show your admiration for those who make your life a little better.

What is Sweetest Day?

Originally created by a candy confectioner from Cleveland, Ohio in 1921 to spread joy to those who are often forgotten. Still standing as a day of kindness, Sweetest Day has evolved into recognizing the people we care for.

Who Can I Give Flowers On Sweetest Day?

Unlike Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day is not a solely romantic holiday, nor is it as stressful. Sweetest Day is focused on spreading cheer to anyone around you through a small treat. Gift ideas like flowers accompanied by a little baggy of sweet treats is an excellent way to celebrate Sweetest Day. Today is the day to offer an extra expression of affection to someone close to you!

Co-workers

We work alongside peers regularly and often forget to show care and appreciation for them. Whether you have a work bestie or feel a co-worker could use a good deed or piece of encouragement, a sweet floral arrangement can be a wonderful way to brighten their day. If you want to share words of encouragement or affirmation with them, you can provide a personalized card message in the online ordering process that will be delivered with their flowers.

Neighbors

If you’ve never had formal introductions, now is a perfect opportunity to break the ice and warm their heart. Sometimes we don’t know the ones who live right across or beside us. Don’t be a stranger. Break the ice and offer the kind gesture of flowers with a heartwarming card message. Not sure how to start that conversation? No problem. Smile, kindly introduce yourself, explain that it’s Sweetest Day, and then offer them their gift. This could be a good way to encourage them or potentially be the beautiful beginning of a good friendship. It never hurts to spread the cheer.

Friends / Family / Special Someone

Surprise your besties, that special one, or your family with a gorgeous bouquet and shower them with words of affirmation through a special card message. Let them know how much you appreciate them and the things about them that are so special to you. If you’re really close, you could select a bouquet that incorporates their favorite colors or favorite flowers. To make a truly perfect pair, add some of their favorite candies or treats along with their beautiful bouquet. If they haven’t heard of Sweetest Day before, here is your opportunity to introduce them to this sweet holiday.

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.

Christmas

Where is Poppies Flowers And Gifts located?

Poppies Flowers And Gifts is located in Metropolis, IL.

I have a few questions, how can I contact Poppies Flowers And Gifts?

Have questions regarding the details of an order, delivery, or other needs, please feel free to contact Poppies Flowers And Gifts at (618) 309-6992. We would be happy to assist you.

Schedule delivery now so you don't have to worry later.

We recommend placing your order as soon as possible. The sooner the better. By placing your order early and scheduling your future delivery in advance, you secure your selection. This will prevent any flower substitutions that you could experience if you placed your order in the thick of a high order volume time and limited supply.

The later your order is placed, the riskier your chances are to receive the exact florals you desire. During an order dense period of time, such as Christmas, specific flower supplies run low or go out of stock and the shop relies upon a new shipment to come in. This often results in flower substitutions when filling an order with a pressing time frame, due to a late order.

Provide yourself with assurance and peace of mind by placing your order earlier rather than later.

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.
