Tip of the Day: cut down on costs by going seasonal

Hello everyone! The beautiful weather has arrived and so has bloomsbury’s series of tips to ensure you maximize the floral budget for your event!

Today’s tip is to opt for flowers that will be in season. As with any good or service, the price of flowers is subject to the economics of supply and demand. When a flower is in season, the supply is high and the prices will be lower. However, as the growing season for a flower moves on and the yield decreases, supply falls and therefore there are less flowers to meet the demand. As a result, the prices will go up.

So there you have it everyone – the economics of flowers. If you choose flowers that are in season and plentiful at the time of your event, you will be saving on your raw materials costs!
